Xochimilco and Coayacan: a wonderful culturally emersive trip on colorful boats and through an amazing local markettrip
John_E, Aug 2023
Our fabulous guide took us on a wonderful boat ride amidst the cheerful and colorful boats serenaded by the mariachi. This was followed by a culturally emersive exploration of the Coayacan Market and art show. The local lunch was fabulous!
Nice private tour around Xochimilco & Coyoacán with great guide, Monse & Luis.
Nalisa_W, Aug 2023
We enjoyed the tour guided by Monse & Luis. The tour is not great but Monse made a difference being our friendly guide. She brought us to the nicest place for Churros and also Tostadas. The itinerary for the tour was simple and straightforward. We started the tour at 9.30am and ended at around 5pm. Overall, the tour was great because of Monse. Xochimilco & Coyoacán are nice but not great like Teotihuacan Hot Air Balloon tour we had the previous day.
Informative and Relaxed
Matt_L, Apr 2023
We had a great time with Franck. The trip to Xochimilco was full of information about the different districts and learning about the history and culture of Mexico City. The boat ride was timed perfectly so that we didn't have to wait for a ride but there was plenty of energy on the water giving us an authentic experience. Our time in Coyoacan was relaxed and we enjoyed some delicious churros with plenty of time for checking out mulitple markets.
Great private tour, and...

Great private tour, and Ernesto was a great guide, very knowledgeable... would definitely recommend.
Fantastic tour with Island of the dolls
Sonja_E, Feb 2022
We were a group of 9 adults and 1 toddler. A few of us have been here before and made a special request to change our private tour and personalize it for us. We added a visit to the Island of the dolls, which adds quite a bit of extra time. The visit definitely offered a unique and haunted story about a local man’s experience and his supporting family from Xochimilco. Our guide, June was accommodating, patient, enjoyable to spend time with and extremely professional and knowledgeable. Pricing was fair and we felt completely taken care of. We even asked if we could see the Axolotl, native to the area. She made another special stop for us and we ended up learning so much more about this habitat, history and culture. It was way more then a tourist attraction for us. She helped us with making sure we had food, beers and even cocktails, which we purchased from boats on the canal. Highly recommended!

Thank you for trusting us Sonja! Xochimilco is an iconic spot everyone should visit, its a mystical, folcloiric and very respresentative place of our culture. We love sharing all this richness with you all and make sure you´re having a great time but also learning about it.
Xochimilco is Wonderful, Coyocan is Beautiful, Tour Could Use a Little Better Organization
Emily_D, Sep 2021
Xochimilco was one of the main attractions I wanted to visit in Mexico City, and it did not disappoint: so beautiful and relaxing, and definitely the best part of this tour. I have a recommendation for the tour company/folks who work with them to arrange this tour in the future: please skip the university altogether, and spend more time in Xochimilco. We started the tour at the university, and spent what my boyfriend and I felt like was entirely too much time there. Afterward we went to Xochimilco, and we only went up and down the canal one time before being rushed to Coyoacan. My boyfriend and I were hoping to walk along the banks of the canal and have a drink in one of the cafes, but we immediately left for Coyoacan after returning from our boat ride. Another issue: the person I worked with to book this tour told me to purchase tickets to the Frida Kahlo Museum for 10:30am (the museum requires timed entry). On the day of the tour, our guide, who was not the person who I worked with to book the tour, told us our itinerary had changed due to weather, which meant we were not able to use our Museum tickets. I had visited to the Frida Kahlo Museum before and my boyfriend was not particularly interested so it wasn't exactly a disappointment, but I was definitely annoyed to spend $25 on tickets we did not get to use.

Hi Emily! Thank you so much for your comments, your opinions are the most important part of this, we will be careful with those detalis, Definitely Xochimilco and Coyoacan are parts of our city you can't miss when you visit CDMX.
Fun day in Coyoacan and Xochilmilco
Michelle_L, Dec 2020
We had an amazing time with Mariana on the Xochimilco & Coyoacan tour. She was prompt when picking us up and her van was very comfortable. It was a full day of seeing various sights in Mexico City including the Mercado Coyoacan where she brought us to enjoy the market. After a bit of shopping she took us to eat the most delicious quesadillas I’ve ever had. (Not the same as the quesadillas in the States). Then we drove to Xochimilco where we spent time on a colorful boat floating down the canals serenaded by mariachi. I truly enjoyed the day with her and would highly recommend this tour!
