What makes this tour special
Explore some of the most picturesque corners and famed sights of Mexico City: the bohemian neighbourhood of Coyoacán, the former home of Frida Kahlo bursting with old-world charm, the Xochimilco canals, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987, and the Frida Kahlo Museum.
On your private full-day tour, you will:
Discover Xochimilco, often described as the "Mexican Venice" and famous for its networks of canals popular among both foreign and Mexican tourists alike;
Enjoy a "Trajinera"(boat) ride through the Floating Gardens in a brightly-coloured gondola;
Walk through the campus of the UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico) and admire the work of artists like Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros displayed on the walls of the buildings;
Walk through cobblestone street and visit the most emblematic places of Coyoacán, a quiet and picturesque area of Mexico City and a former Aztec village;
Visit "La Casa Azul", the house where Frida Kahlo lived and where she painted some of her most famous pieces, which is now the Frida Kahlo Museum dedicated to her life and work;
See the Coyoacán Market, an iconic landmark in this neighbourhood where you can find anything, from vegetables to baskets and get to know the daily life of the locals.
You will start your tour by exploring the Xochimilco area, its famous river channels and chinampas (floating gardens), which were used by ancient civilizations as a system of agriculture and commerce since pre-Hispanic times. You'll learn about the history of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, first established as a pre-Columbian city on the shores of Lake Xochimilco just south of Mexico City.
Immerse yourself in the old streets and corners of the emblematic Coyoacán, known as the cultural heart of Mexico City, and explore its markets, architecture, traditions, flavours and culture.
Coyoacan is one of the most popular places in Mexico City with stunning colonial architecture, vibrant colours and intricate designs that make you feel as if you've stepped back in time. You'll find everything from brightly painted houses to quirky churches (like the Santuario de Santa Maria) and even an old convent where nuns still live today.
In the same neighbourhood, you'll visit the Frida Kahlo Museum, known as "The Blue House", where this world-renowned Latin American artist lived and died, filled with personal objects from Frida’s life and artworks inspired by her life experiences that will give you a better understanding of this great Mexican artist.
At the end of your tour, you'll have learned so much about Mexican culture and history—and chances are, you'll have made some new friends along the way!
