Sergio (tour guide) and Juan (driver) were the sweetest! We got picked up at 9am at W in Polanco. My husband unfortunately had a business call that ran late and Serio and Juan were so kind not to make me feel weird while I waited in the car for my husband. Once we were on our trip we explained that we had a very late night and we needed a michelada. As soon as we arrived to Xochimilco he let everyone know that we needed one urgently, and he got us one asap. The entire trip Sergio was so informative and our driver was so very kind. When we were in Coayacan we asked if we could eat in a restaurant and he kindly allowed us time to eat in a fabulous restaurant on the square. Such a perfect day and highly recommend.

We had the BEST time on our tour with Juan Luis as our knowledgeable and wonderful tour guide with Arturo as our driver. We explored so much of the city with Juan Luis and he offered deep insight into the rich history of Xochimilco, Coyocan, and Mexico City as well as the artistic minds of Diego and Frida. in our very short time in Mexico (only 36 hours), this tour made us feel like we had covered it all! Highly recommend for anyone visiting CDMX for the first time!

We loved this tour and our guide, Ramon, made it more special with his extensive knowledge of all things Mexico.
Our trip was on a weekday which meant Xochimilco was quiet, we loved it as you could wander and enjoy some of the views and wildlife on the canal. The boat ride on weekends gets wild with the canals packed with boats, vendors and mariachis.
The Frida Kahlo museum, Olympic stadium, university murals and Diego Rivera’s museum were interesting as well

My trip to Mexico City with your tour guide was a disaster from the beginning. Roberto “Bob” the tour guide was 30 minutes late.Our group of 7 adults had paid for a private tour . After visiting Xochimilco our group traveled to the Frida Kahlo Museum, Bob the tour guide had to beg and plead to let our group in as the museum was closing? What? We paid in advance and we may not get in? this was frustrating,next we went to Diego Rivera museum and dropped off, literally dropped off, As we tried to enter, the staff informed us usually the tour guide has the tickets and accompanies the group… Bob was nowhere to be found, seven upset and disappointed adults were left abandoned in the courtyard. Eventually our driver was located and was able to give our group access to the museum. Coyoacan the tour states admission? We drove around in circles in the city, what was the point? Bob stated the tour was over and returning us to our drop off location. What happened to UNAM? Bob said we saw it,” remember in the morning he pointed it out” pointed it out from the freeway! What? The tour was for exploring the university by foot to view the mosaic murals.
This tour was a Big mistake that caused grief and frustration to our entire group. Bob was no tour guide, he left us abandoned, and had no historical data or facts for us. Your tour site was a real letdown. We would have been better off hiring our own driver. Because that’s what Bob was, he simply accompanied the driver and was No Tour Guide.

We had the best time! We went during the off-season to MXCD and had the best time. Our tour guide was knowledgable about the waterways, museums, university, and Frieda museum. I wouldn't replace or change anything about our magnificent day!

Roberto our Tour Guide and Antonio our chauffeur were perfect gentlemen and amazing. They were right on time to pick us up and the tour went as per plan. Roberto also took us to get some amazing authentic Mexican food at the Cayoacan market. Roberto was very well
Informed and went above and beyond his duty to show us around and help us understand Mexican culture better. A big thumbs up and thank you to Roberto and Antonio.

We had the pleasure of being guided on this tour by Giovanni and our driver, Victor. Giovanni was incredibly knowledgeable about Mexico and it’s history. The Xochimilco boat tour was beautiful and fascinating. Giovanni gave us information about its ecological prominence and its formation. We walked the city center of Coyoacan and marveled at its 16th century architecture. We toured on All Souls Day so we were right in the middle of a national celebration! Again, Giovanni had vast knowledge of the area. From there we walked to Frida Kahlo’s Museum, and just happened to see a celebratory parade on the way! The Blue House of Frida Kahlo was spectacular filled with her art and Diego’s tributes to her. Please request Giovanni if you are lucky enough to book this tour!

Had a great private tour today with Carlos and his driver Roberto! Yes, it may be a little bit pricier than some tours but it was Frida Kahlo day so important to us. Carlos was delightful from the moment we met him at our hotel. He took us to the Olympic Stadium to see the Rivera mural, the University and explained all the details of the murals. Then ahead of all the queues at the Frida Khalo Museum. Fabulous! On the the floating flower boat. Then he took us to the food markets for lunch so a real 'local' experience with really tasty food! Would highly recommend this tour. Fantastic first day in Mexico! Muchas Gracias Carlos!

Terrific tour. We saw and learned so much and our guide, Gio, was great. The canals were fascinating as was Frida Kahlo's house. My favorites were the Diego Rivera's museum as well as the stories and brief walking tour of Coyoacan.

This was a fantastic tour and one I highly recommend. Our guide was very knowledgeable and organized. My favorite part was visiting the Frida Kahlo museum, but my partner contends that Xochimilco was the best part because he was able to steer the boat.
