Perfect day trip with a cool team and a perfect guide! I really enjoyed it!
Please keep in mind that it's mountain hiking in advanced height! Take care of correct clothing and shoes!!!
A nice climb. The altitude slows you down if not acclimatized, but take it slow, the views are awesome.
It was a very enjoyable hiking experience. It is a must if hiking is your interest. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The itinerary was followed just as expected. Simply put, I encourage you to consider this attraction when visiting Mexico City.
I really enjoyed it as it was extremely challenging. I was glad that one of the guides took a faster group as I would not have enjoyed it as much if we had to have kept stopping and waiting.
The food stop after the climb was also excellent and a good way to replenish the used up energy.
Wonderful guides -- an overall great experience. Bring a small backpack, water and a few snacks for the journey.
Excellent experience! really worthwhile, we did not have much luck in the morning because when we arrived there was a lot of fog and the park ranger would not let us go up, but our guide suggested that we walk up the road to the base camp where we were supposed to start our climb. After a casual 6km walk up this dirt road the weather changed and we were able to climb the volcano afterall. In total we walked 11.3km but this is not typical for this tour if its a nice day. The view was definately worth the effort to get up there.
Great tour, really tough hike. Only problem was the weather wasn't great the day we went.
Tour was very good...Luis the tour guide led us up the mountain, giving great explanations of the surroundings. Even gave us an impromptu tour of mexico city on the way back in. Armando the driver did a great job too on the difficult roads up the mountain!
Great tour, hiking was great. Excellent guide. Would go again. Highly recommend. Just be aware of limitations if you are not acclimatized to the altitude. This is a no kidding, difficult hike.
Our guide was fantastic. She filled us in on all the info from a tour we did the day before where the guide told us nothing also.
Great views of the volcano and a fun hike. Possibly the best quesadilla's I've had in Mexico at the restaurant on the way home also.
This tour is a "must do" for people who love hiking and outdoors activities. We had a great time with the group and the tour guide. It's quite a hard hike so its recommended to have good physical condition. The views are breathtaking so be sure to enjoy every second of the hike.
Fantastic views and a good hard hike. Couldn't have been any better.
Great tour! Thank you!!! Of course, it is very difficult to climb without any experience, but it is up to anyone.
Was a great trip with a unique and beautiful setting. Guide was entertaining. I did have trouble getting in touch with the tour company but they ended up picking me up on time anyways. Beware that this is a very tough hike, coming from sea level I had a tough time but it was totally worth it.
Excellent tour. We had a chance to experience great local food, too. Do not wear shorts, it is cold on top of the volcano and you could encounter poisonous snakes. Comfortable snickers/hiking shoes are a must.
Lomricko, our guide was very entertaining.
Excellent trip! Our happy guide made us feel safe and entertained. Stunning views. Recommended for everyone who has the (somewhat requiring) physique.
Great tour with great guide! Really pretty views of the volcano and worth going!
Wear layers and good shoes.
Improvement might be an additional guides so that the more and less fit groups could split up. Nonetheless we had a great guide.
Overall a great trip. We were told that we were scheduled for a 6am pickup, bus arrived at 6:30- not a big deal. We stopped several times to pick up others from various hotels then to connect with other busses to let some off and others on. Next stop was at a convenience store for junk food, and then at a location at the base of the two volcanoes for pictures and to hear the local legend from Edgar, who talked to us during the entire ride, cracking jokes mostly cracking himself up as most of us had no idea what he was talking about. We finally arrived at our destination at 10:30 and prepared to hike. Miguel, the bus driver, was also our leader. He was great, playing sweeper and keeping his eyes on the group hikers. The walk was not physically difficult but the altitude made for a slow ascent as we often had to stop to catch our breath. The scenery was beautiful. It was quite cold at the highest point. Coming down the hill was slippery at times. We arrived back at the bus around 3 and were taken to a roadside taco stand. I did not eat as I was concerned about the cleanliness of the food. My husband had a taco. He developed GI issues a couple days later and is still not back to normal. I would suggest Americans avoid roadside dining in Mexico. The ride back to our hotel was long. The traffic was crazy but Miguel did an amazing job navigating the busy streets, returning us to our hotel about 6pm. We slept well that night after such a long day
Very good tour! The van to drive to the volcano was a bit overused so comfort was not quite there but I guess you get to experience the Mexican standards that way!
The guide was good to allow to split the group in two, based on ability. So it allowed us to hike up to 4500m. Loved it.
