Make your way to a meeting point in downtown Mexico City, then start exploring Coyoacán, whose cobblestone streets are lined with historic mansions. As you walk, the guide will share the pre-Hispanic background of the area, now a hot spot for Mexico City creatives.
Continue to the National Autonomous University of Mexico and walk through the UNESCO-listed campus, which includes murals by artists Diego Rivera and Juan O´Gorman. Pause for a lunch break (at your own expense) at Jardín Hidalgo, visit the Church of San Juan Bautista, and head to the Frida Kahlo Museum, or Coyoacán Casa Azul, where you’ll have an hour of free time.
After your tour of Coyoacán, head to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Xochimilco, whose tradition of floating islands dates to Aztec times. You’ll travel through the canals on a trajinera, a colorful, flat-bottom boat, with the option to purchase snacks from floating vendors. The tour concludes at the original departure point.
