Description

Join our sightseeing tour through the boroughs of Mexico City. Enjoy this colourful journey as we visit the famous Casa Azul (The Blue House) and have the chance to look at some of the masterpieces of the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. You will be impressed by the stunning architecture of the university. The protagonists of our wonderful adventure are the scenic colonial borough of Coyoacán and the beautiful Xochimilco aka The Place of Flowers, which will leave you with unforgettable new memories.

First off we will visit Coyoacán, which is Nahuatl and means "place of those who have coyotes". You will learn all about the fascinating history from your personal tour guide, as this district was one of the first colonial settlements. The area has been evolving with time due to different kinds of causes such as volcanic eruptions or human intervention. Get a sense of the bohemian atmosphere that defines Coyoacán and differentiates it from Mexico City's center.

The borough is also known for its culture and its intellect. It has attracted local as well as foreign artists as source of inspiration or choice of residence. Several important institutes such as the National Arts Center, the National School of Music, the National School of Restoration and the Ciudad Universitaria are located in Coyoacán. You will get to see the University and learn more about the fantastic and versatile architecture of the buildings of which some were built in the 50s. It was named a UNESCO cultural heritage of humanity in 2007.

Furthermore your guide will lead you to Jardín Hidalgo at the center of Coyoacán and answer all your questions regarding the historic background of the streets and buildings. Discover various activities that are typical for Mexico or try some local delicacies at one of the food stands. As mentioned before, we will visit La Casa Azul - the Frida Kahlo Museum. Here you will have the chance to enjoy some time on your own as you stroll through the different rooms and join the world of Frida Kahlo and her paintings and personal belongings.

The second part of our tour will take you south to one of Frida Kahlo's favorite places – Xochimilco. As we travel way back in time, you will find out more about the valley that once used to be a lake. Today both local and foreign people visit the borough to relax in "The Place of Flowers". Join us on our one hour punt (boat) ride through the channels to explore the famous chinampas – also known as floating gardens. During our trip you can try different kinds of dishes and drinks while Mexican music is being played.

Join our unforgettable journey and follow your personal guide through the beautiful boroughs as you learn more about their history.
