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.

Allan was the best tour guide I have ever met. He gave us useful information about the places we visited but more than that, it felt like we were just going out on a trip with a friend. We had a small group during our tour so it felt like a close gathering and everyone was very nice and welcoming. Allan made us feel like we have been friends for so long! Our conversations were natural and engaging. The entire trip was comfortable and fun! We even felt kind of sad when the day ended and had to say bye to everyone. Overall such a wonderful and unforgettable experience. Highly recommend this experience.

The tour guide and the driver were well versed in English and were very patient and friendly in accommodating requests from everyone in the group. We spent about 1hr on the boat in Xochimilco and 1hr inside the Frida Kahlo museum. Getting tickets for these 2 activities individually is not easy, so I would highly recommend this group trip! They give you about 90mins of free time for lunch at Coyoacan and there are plenty of restaurants there, so you don't have to worry about carrying lunch for the trip.

Absolutely fantastic day trip that takes you to some amazing places a bit further out of the centre. Would highly recommend if you are interested in seeing Xochimilco and this was definitely the highlight for us - we kept saying this was one of the best experiences we had in Mexico City. Great to see the other sights and Frida Khalo’s house. Our guide Jorge was great and really knowledgable, friendly and took time to answer all questions and give thorough explanations of all stops. The only thing that could have been improved was the transportation. It was fine for us but the van had very poor suspension meaning you felt every single bump in the road - not good if you have a back problem but we were fine.
