Full description

Take a guided day trip from Mexico City and cruise the waterways of Xochimilco, a UNESCO site, on a wooden boat. Explore the colonial architecture of Coyoacán, stroll through Central University, and visit the Frida Kahlo Museum with the included entry tickets.

Enjoy the convenience of being picked up from the doorstep of your accommodation in Mexico city. Relax in an airconditioned van on the drive to the waterways of Xochimilco. Glide through the water on a colorful wooden boat called a Trajinera.

Purchase a drink and regional snacks from one of the restaurant boats that dot the waterways. Listen to the sounds of mariachi bands permeating the air as you sail past the floating gardens.

Continue your tour to the neighborhood of Coyoacán, favored by some of Mexico's most famous artists and writers. Stroll its tree-lined cobbled streets, admiring the stucco and tile facades of its beautiful colonial houses.

Next, make your way to the Frida Kahlo Museum which is the former house of the famed Mexican painter. Gain insight into the life of this iconic figure and her famous husband, Diego Rivera, and stroll through the picturesque garden.

The last stop of the tour is to the campus of the Central University, home to the Olympic Stadium from 1968 and adorned with murals by a number of Mexican artists.

A great day. Hotel pickup on time. Knowledgeable and friendly guide. Interesting stops at the University and Cuicuilco. Really enjoyed our boat ride at Xochimilco. Coyoacan is lovely. The Casa Azul is beautiful and it was very interesting to learn more about Frida Kahlo. Crazy traffic in Mexico City but the driver did very well.

We were a small group of 5 so very easy to hear Paloma our lovely guide. She was a local and very knowledgeable and managed to switch between English and Spanish for all the participants. We went on a Sunday when the traffic wasn’t too bad and it was great to see the locals enjoying themselves. The tour included tickets to the Frida Kahlo museum which skipped the queue!
