Wowwww!!! What an experience! History, colours, musique, kind and happy people! Nothing could be so amazing without JOSUE! The best guide we ever met! He has a way to say things and you can’t get bored and you want to know more and more! He adapted the excursion to our needs! Frida Kalhos museum was closed because of COVID restriction and he accepted to follow us for free to anthropological museum just to make us happy! Thank you for the experience!!!!

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.

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.
