The Floating Flower Gardens Of Xochimilco

You’ll visit the floating flower gardens of Xochimilco with one of our hosts, who also happens to be an archaeologist! The islands you’ll discover here are the last vestige of the ancient Aztec’s agricultural system. These canals used to create an intricate system of irrigation waterways. This promises to be an experience for the senses, as you visit the vibrant Xochimilco market and feast on pre-hispanic cuisine.

Within 24 hours after booking you'll receive a short questionnaire about your personality and interests. Based on your responses, you'll be assigned a like-minded host. Your host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary to help you discover what makes the city unique. You will also agree on a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
