What To Expect

Mexico City
On this tour we will visit a cemetery at night, where you can admire the famous altars and their rich expressions of popular art that fuse symbolism and thought, both pre-Hispanic and Catholic around death.

After this visit, enjoy a night tour in a trajinera through the canals of Xochimilco accompanied by mariachis. Float through the decorated canals in this spectacular boat and pass through the floating gardens, popularly known as chinampas, while singing and dancing to the rhythm of Mexican music.

To end this experience, enjoy a performance of "La Llorona" and enjoy the most authentic Day of the Dead experience.

Very friendly and knowledgeable! Unique experience. Visiting the panteon was such an experience. Everything was well organized.
Worth it for xochimilco!!

The canal ride was worth the entire cost!! We loved the cemetery tour as well, and overall had a great time. My only complaint is the length of the bus ride to get out of town. It’s understandable with the traffic during the holiday, but it was over 2 hours to get to the cemetery and we were not anticipating that.

But Sandy, Alexa, and Jose were great!

Started an hour later than scheduled, it seemed that they didn’t have enough staff to organize people and get them into the correct buses. Long drive to the cemetery, which was legitimately cool, but then the boat ride was long and not very exciting. Couple of entertainers who were talented but mostly just a very slow ride with not much to do. Not a terrible time, but it was a lot of time and money, with only the cemetery was really memorable (and that could have been done without the tour) . Plus the late start was quite annoying to me.
Too crowded, more waiting/transporting than enjoying

Over 400 participants, very unorganized bus transport where we waited over 45 mins in line to board the bus. We insisted on being in the English speaking tours, but was forced to join a mainly Spanish speaking group making it very difficult to enjoy. Guides did their very best with the complicated logistics but the group of
family/kids/couples kept to themselves and was not the fun party vibe that we were looking for.

If you’re going to go, go with a large group of your friends or make sure you land with guides who can rally the group.
