Discover the bohemian side of Mexico City on our Free Tour of Coyoacan. This colourful neighbourhood seems immune to the passing of time; artists, writers, poets, film directors, actors, and intellectuals from all periods could not resist its unique charm. Walk around this peaceful area filled with tradition and voices which sound today as echoes of yesterday.

Admire the scenery amongst studios dedicated to dance, pottery, photography, or art, and gorgeous 16th century churches like the church of St. John The Baptist, a symbol of the beautiful Novohispanic Baroque style. 

Navigate through Mexico’s history and Mexicanism which represents a reconnection with Mexico’s pre-Hispanic roots. Hear about the life of this movement’s protagonist, Frida Kahlo, Mexico’s most universal woman artist, whom, of course, lived in Coyoacan.

Coyoacan also mirrors Mexico’s revolutionary character, which is essential in understanding the country’s idiosyncrasies, as near Frida Kahlo’s house, where Leon Trotsky lived in exile. An exile which unfortunately did not place him safely beyond Stalin’s reach, as he was assassinated here in 1940.

On our Tour of Coyoacan you will discover the Mexico that has always been: colourful, beautiful, artistic, cosy, charming, and with a history filled with heated revolutions and tragic idealism.

It was my best day in Mexico City

5 out of 5

I did the Coyoacán free walking tour and it was my best day in Mexico City. I was very lucky to have Hermes as a guide, I highly recommend him. This guy was funny, friendly and he speaks very good english and has an extensive knowledge. He went out of his way to make an incredible tour in which he taught us more than History. He shared extra time with me and the other member of the group.

Great, fun and interesting tours!

5 out of 5

I have done two tours with Strawberry Tours. The first was the Free Taco Crawl in the Roma district of Mexico City. The second was the Free Tour of the Coyoacan neighborhood of Mexico City. Both tours were lead by Hermes, a guide who is friendly, outgoing and fun. The Free Coyoacan Tour was about the history of the Coyoacan neighborhood and the famous people that have lived there. We began the tour at the Frida Kahlo house. Hermes covered the story of Frida Kahlo's life and her influence on Mexican art and history. We also visited the local markets, churches and museums in the area. I highly recommend this tour.
