Awesome experience! I am in awe by the beauty of the region. I loved the tranquil environment. The hike up the mountain was a little rough. I didn't expect to have to take so many breaks, but it was very well worth it. Definitely worth a return trip
Our guide Francisco is very nice and knowledgable about not only the hike, but also history of Mexico. The hike, like other reviews have mentioned, was not very long. I brought my GPS watch and it's about 1 mile each way, however it felt great just to be outside the city and in the mountains. I would recommend this tour anyone who would like to see a different landscape.
Kevin was an excellent guide, great experience! I especially appreciate the freedom to go off on my own and to be given a time to return to the vehicle given the variable speed and physical conditioning of the participants.
Our tour guide Kevin was awesome. He was very patient and helpful. Unfortunately we didn and #39;t make it to final destination due to pace of group and weather conditions. But overall it and #39;s a must do while in Mexico City.
Javier was well informed and attentive. And the lunch was well chosen, an authentic Mexican experience!
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.
