The project of creation of the University, although without an immediate result, was proposed by Justo Sierra in 1881, being deputy and with the intention of counteracting the educational problem.

      We had a great time with our guide Arturo and our driver Claudia. We especially enjoyed the Anahuacalli Museum and we didn't realize it was included. They were both very professional and friendly. Most importantly, Arturo had a lot of knowledge to share about Mexican history. We could not have seen all of the things we saw in one day on our own. The line at the Frida Kahlo museum was 2-3 hours but since we were with a tour we waited only ten minutes. I recommend it. Thanks again Arturo and Claudia!

      Our guide, Brenda, and driver Arutro were the best! The tour was fun and informative, they let us go at our own pace, not rushing us when we wanted to linger and speeding things up when we wanted. They were also kind enough to tell us about other sights that we didn't know about and even dropped us there at the end of the tour. Yay, Brenda and Arturo!!

      We loved this trip - it might have been our favorite in Mexico City. Carlos was our guide, and Arturo our driver, and they couldn't have been friendlier or more knowledgeable. We almost passed on Xochimilco but were so happy we didn't - going early in the morning before the party starts was the way to go - and get around in the crowded and colorful canals. The bonus was the Diego Rivera Museum, a spectacular edifice filled with his private collection of archeological artifacts. We loved the Frida museum as well. At one point we were hungry and Carlo brought us to the market at Coyoacan where we had the greatest burritos ever. Highly recommended!

      Great experience. I have taken a lot of tours all over the world. We asked the guide to add a new stop at the end of the tour. She quickly made arrangements and made our request work.

      If you get a chance to do this tour, see if you can get the combination of guide Brenda Aburto and driver Lorena Martinez. Their expertise made this tour exceptional.

      The additional cost for a private guide was worth every penny. Our guide, Geraldo, was wonderful. He is a knowledgeable, dependable, and friendly guide who goes out of his way to tailor the tour to his customers’ needs.
      Xochimilco, Coyoacan, and Frida Kahlo House should not be missed.

      Wonderful made even better by our incredible Luis. He was very knowledgeable, professional, and amicable. We highly recommend Luis to anyone wanting an incite full experience in Mexico City. We enjoyed every aspect of this tour. Glad we went to Xochimilco first. It was beautiful and interesting. Coyoacan is a lovely area with many shops and restaurants. We felt safe. The Frida Kahlo museum was very interesting. Also the Diego Rivera museum was stupendous - a must.

      Highly recommend this tour. It is so much fun to visit each site and experience how the locals spend their leisure time. Riding the boats down the river is an experience to be had. And, the Frida Kahlo museum is a must see. Our tour guide David did an excellent job timing each site visit. David is professional and knowledgeable on the history of each site.

      We had a great time on this tour! Everyone that works for this tour company is wonderful. They are courteous, professional and very knowledgeable. Anna Mendez from their main office called us the night before and checked on us to make sure she had the correct pick up address. The next morning our private driver Luis Quintero arrived on time and our tour guide Sandra Espinoza was already waiting for us at the lobby. The minivan was nice, comfortable, clean and in good driving condition. Our first stop was in Xochimilco, they gave us time to go to the restroom and get some snack before getting on the barge. While on the barge they made sure we had enough snacks and drinks as well. We took a nice, short ride up and down the lake with enough time to look at the sights and enjoy the beautiful sunny morning without crowds on the lake. We had plenty of time before our scheduled entrance into the Frida Kahlo Museum, so our guides suggested an excellent taco restaurant for lunch. We entered the Frida Kahlo Museum on time without having to wait in line and had plenty of time to walk through and enjoyed the audio guide we purchased our guide was not allowed to give us a tour inside the museum, but gave us plenty of information before and after. After, they took us to Museo Diego Rivera Anahuacalli, where we saw his private pre-hispanic art collection NOT his artwork. Finally, we stopped for a few pictures at the UNAM and Olympic Stadium on our way back to the hotel. We highly recommend this tour and this company. You will have a wonderful time. Having a private driver and guide is a MUST!

      David was an excellent guide! He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful! He made sure that we arrived early enough so that we avoided the crowds and had all of our tickets to the museums available in order to avoid the lines. He also pre-ordered our lunch so that we had enough time to see all of the sites! Request David if you have the opportunity! The boat excursion at Xochimilco is a kick with the colorful tourist boats and the vendor boats that pull along side to sell food, beverages, goods and music provided by Mariachis! We have not experienced anything like it. We also enjoyed the neighborhood of Coyoacan, the F Kahlo and D Rivera Museums. A must do tour!

      This tour was terrific from start to finish. David, our tour guide, was outstanding - incredibly knowledgeable, easy to be with and truly wanted us to have the best possible experience. He was so accommodating. Xochimilco was an experience not to be missed. Our driver, Anna, was also terrific. She navigated traffic on highways to narrow cobblestone streets with ease. We were never rushed and got to fully enjoy all the sights that were part of this tour.

      Juan was an amazing tour guide, very knowledgeable and pesonable. I wish he could have been our tour guide for the entire length of our stay in Mexico City. He allowed us to alter our schedule to spend more time doing different activites that interested us. Casa Azul, Museo Anahuacalli and Xocochilmco were all great sites and Juan knew the ins and outs of all of them.

      David, our tour guide, was delightful. He was prompt, fun to talk to, great about answering questions and even asking us if we had any, and took us to lots of local points of interest above and beyond the Xochimilco boats, Frida Kahlo Museum, Anahuacali Museum, and university outlined in the itinerary.

      This was a lot of fun. Our guide and driver were excellent, and when the power went out at the Frida Kahlo Museum they improvised and took us to Diego Riveria's Museum and the back to Kahlo Museum when power was restored and did not have to wait on line. Enjoyed the floating gardens-we went here first to avoid the crowds and that was smart. Recommend.

      Alejandra, was our tour guide. She was GREAT! Can't say enough about her. And a special Thank You to our tour driver, as well! She made our transportation to and from the sights seem effortless. I can assure you it was not.... great job.
      We were amazed by these beautiful gardens. Alejandra was very patient with us, as we NEVER stopped taking photos.
      We had a busy day. Our tour continued on to the Anahuacalli Museum located in Coyoacan, in the south of Mexico City.
      It was conceived and created by Diego Rivera, husband of artist, Frida Kahlo.
      Frida Kahlo Museum was amazing. You don't want to miss it, although the crowds can be large at times, as this is one of the most popular
      Tours. Not at all a problem, as Alejandra was very informative. We tried to soak up all the information she gave us.
      This was our first trip to Mexico City. Probably one of my favorite places, in all our travels. We will be back.
      Remember Alejandra....she is the best!

      My wife and I went to Mexico City for our honeymoon and took this tour on our second day there. This was one of the best things we did on our entire honeymoon. Luis and David are both wonderful people. They alone made this tour amazing. The places we went were everything we wanted them to be. Everything was taken care of, we were given as much time as we needed at each location, and all tickets and extra fees were part of the cost of the tour. They contacted us the day before and picked us up and dropped us off at our AirBnb. David and Luis got to know us and took us to places they thought we would like. They were so accommodating, taking us to grab some food, stop at an ATM, you name it. If you want to have a great day with some genuinely kind, friendly people, take this tour.
