What To Expect

After being picked up at your hotel in Mexico City, you will head first to Coyoacán, which name in Náhuatl means “place of coyotes“.

Here, your guide will give you a brief explanation on the origins and importance of this quarter and the surroundings, and you’ll have time to walk around its streets and if you want to, have a light breakfast (at your expense). The Spanish used the area as their headquarters during the conquest of the Aztec Empire and made it the first capital of New Spain between 1521 and 1523. The village remained completely independent of Mexico City through the colonial period into the 19th century.

The borough of Coyoacan, along with its bohemian ambience and diversity of activities to do and places to visit, make its historic center a highly popular place to visit.

Museo Frida Kahlo
After soaking up the beauty of the Historic Center of Coyoacan you will visit the museum of Frida Kahlo, also called the “Blue House”, where you’ll learn all about the intense relationship between Frida, her works and her home. You will see some of her most important works of art and learn where she was born and also where she died. Although after marrying Diego Rivera she lived in different places of Mexico City, and abroad, she always went back to her old house in Coyoacan. Diego Rivera stated in his will that the home had to be donated, as well as all its contents, in order to turn it into a museum to honor Frida's life.

The museum contains a collection of artwork by Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and other artists along with the couple’s Mexican folk art, pre-Hispanic artifacts, photographs, memorabilia, personal items, and more. The collection is displayed in the rooms of the house which remains much as it was in the 1950s. It is the most popular museum in Coyoacán and one of the most visited in Mexico City. Additional to the contents in the house, you can watch a short video to get a better idea of the painter's point of view on life. It's also worth taking a small walk across the garden, completely enclosed by the four sides or wings of the structure. Its structure is divided by a stepped pyramid, a fountain, and a reflection pool.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Floating Gardens of Xochimilco

After the ride, you’ll have spare time to walk around the crafts market or try the delicious food sold on the surrounding area.

Ligia was an amazing tour guide. She’s a great driver and is very knowledgeable about all of the sites. She always made sure that we went at our own pace, answered all of our questions and took great pictures. We went to Frida Kahlo’s House, Xochimilco and Coyoacán. It’s a great way to spend a day in Mexico City and gave us a very rounded overview of the City. Definitely ask for Ligia, if she’s available, and you’ll be sure to have an amazing trip!
Convenient and Well Organized Tour

Our Tour Guide, Ligia was prompt at our AirBnb for our 9 o clock pickup which proceeded to a fun run of events for the day. We felt like each site was accommodated with the appropriate amount of time allowing for flexibility for shopping or eating as needed. The tour is organized smoothly without TOO much time in the car and plenty of time out exploring. We were very thankful for our driver and all of Liagas knowledge on CDMX and the history of the places we went.
Wonderful guide Ligia and driver Abraham

Ligia our guide and Abraham our driver were wonderful! The tour was perfectly paced from pickup at the hotel, a short walk to enjoy UNAM’s campus, beautiful Coyoacan, and a boozy boat lunch at Xochimilco. Ligia was extremely knowledgeable and funny and shared a lot of her life with us. Highly recommend booking her for your private tour!

Miriam was a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable about Mexico history. She an the driver was very respectful an courteous. Though I was very disappointed that the tour included Freda Kahalo museum we stopped by and only then I was told the place closes on a Monday...I felt like I could have been told this prior and given the option to choose somewhere else, but no ....
