    Leonardo and Mario were wonderful. I accidentally bought the tour without the museum, and was sooo happy to find I think I would have enjoyed it less than the free time I had to explore Coyoacán while others were in the museum. Saved me a few bucks on tour price and that neighborhood was so much fun with all types of food and shopping.

    It was a great and fun half-day trip, I'm really glad we ended up doing it. Our tour guide was a great host, and a real multitasker. He gave us so many great recommendations and information about all sights we visited, and about Mexico city. All our questions were welcome. Xochimilco is a must-to-see for all tourists! We didn't spend much time in Coyoacan - make sure to return here some day! Such a nice place to enjoy lunch and walk around the local markets. You won't have time for that during the trip though. However, make sure to try churros during your short stop there, it's the best we've ever tasted!

Really great tour! We had a great time on the tour, and the guides, Kevin and Manuel, were very knowledgeable. As only an hour is allocated for the Frida Kahlo museum, we decided not to take the bus back to the meeting point as it was the last stop on the tour which allowed us some extra time. The only downside I woudl say, is that the first hour of the tour was spent at a really overpriced market which was not on the itinerary and didn't really provide any value. I would've much preferred to have gone without that part of the tour. The lunch at Xochimilco was a really fun experience and the food was delicious as well.

Leonardo and Mario were wonderful. I accidentally bought the tour without the museum, and was sooo happy to find I think I would have enjoyed it less than the free time I had to explore Coyoacán while others were in the museum. Saved me a few bucks on tour price and that neighborhood was so much fun with all types of food and shopping.

Never be afraid to try things that are "different". Immerse yourself in this beautiful culture. The boat ride was a great experience and seeing Frida Khalo's home was something I've always dreamed of seeing. The guide... ALSO AMAZING!

Completely safe private tour and a very informative guide who was a big help since it was our first trip to Mexico City
