Fun time!

Xochimilco was fun on a Sunday. Carlos and Angel took good care of us. Lots of info and communication and engaging all participants.

Like Mardi Gras on the water! Coyotes and Churches and colleges are a bonus!

I had a fun time, visiting this great little "floating village." I'm from New Orleans, so it was like Mardi Gras floats on boats, sailing down the canals. Delicious lunch from the cook whose canoe attached to ours and food was prepared fresh and to order! Complete with a mariachi band that glides by you and even a souvenir guy, if you're needing a sombrero or serape in a pinch! Coyoacan was beautiful, and seeing the coyote statues all over, hearing the history and walking in the parks was a nice change from being in the busy city. The stop at CU was informative, as well.
xochimilco and CDMX tour

Our guide was knowledgeable, nice, and helpful. We saw multiple areas around CDMX in addition to xochimilco. We saw some of the Art Deco murals and a silver smith.
Didn't start as planned
SheilaandGary, 08-01-2020
The driver sent to pick us up at our hotel refused to allow us on the van, because a member of our party was in a wheelchair. Once we got the tour operator on the phone, they sent another driver for a personal and private tour. We didn't complete all the aspects of the original tour. But, we had a great time and a perfect day. I think the things we saw were better than the original tour would have been.
Xochimilco—fun but could be better
Paul_S, 29-11-2022
We spent an hour driving thru the city to pick up 13 passengers. Much too crowded in the van: 4 people in the 5th row (back.) The guide did not have a microphone. It was hard to hear. We loved the boat trip—colorful and fun, good lunch. Carlos took a nap the entire time, which seemed inappropriate. Since they changed the order of the visits, Carlos took us back to Coyoacan at the end of the day, which we appreciated
