At your place
The meeting point will be at your hotel, from where we will go to Xochimilco. The means of transportation will be up to you, as we can go by public transportation, Uber, or a private vehicle.
Once we arrive in Xochimilco, we will board the trajinera and begin our journey through the canals.
After two hours sailing we will arrive at our destination, which is located in the Xochimilco Ecological Reserve. There is no set time limit on the Island of the Dolls, but people spend 30 minutes to 1 hour there on average.
During the whole trip in the boat, you will be able to calmly see this unique landscape in the world, in which numerous migratory birds live. You can also enjoy the festive and local atmosphere that distinguishes this place.
During the tour and at the pier, you will find a wide variety of Mexican food and drinks, which you can consume during or at the end of the tour.

Hi Ross! Thank you so much for your review, I really appreciate it. It has been a pleasure to have shared some of my passion for my city with your friends. It is a pity that we did not have the chance to meet each other this time, however, do not hesitate to contact me the next time you are in Mexico City. I promise to give you a discount! All the best. Oskar
Great Guy!!! Excellent Guide! Oskar is very nice, knowledgeable and puntual! He will explain to you all the options on expenses and will not pressure you for the most expensive. He is very knowledgeable and will explain all details to you! Thank you for making our visit to Mexico so good!!!
Hi Magali! Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a nice review. It was a pleasure to have met you and to have been part of your experience in Mexico City. Come back soon my friend!
Oskar was very communicative throughout this planned trip, speaking on numerous occasions about the plans, such as times, meeting points etc. I felt very comfortable and consulted throughout the organisation period. The experience itself was well planned and enjoyable. After explaining I don't know much of the city, Oskar met me at my hotel and we travelled down from the centre to the stadium, showing me places and features along the way. I speak absolutely no Spanish at all, so I needed Oskar to help me with practically everything, which he happily did. After the game, he went with me for food, and again, helped explain everything. I would 1,000,000% recommend any tour with Oskar, and I am disappointed that I booked things through TripAdvisor before finding him! Thanks a million!
Thank you for giving me such a great review Cris! It was so nice to meet you and be part of your trip in Mexico City. I hope that one day you will return to this city and if so, do not hesitate to tell me! I will do the same when I go to England. I hope you continue traveling and visiting football stadiums around the world. All the best. Your friend Oskar
