What people are saying about Antigua Guatemala

Overall rating

(50 reviews)

This was an extremely difficult hike. I’m a very fit person who works out 5x a week, and i could not take more than 15 steps without stopping. Intense incline for 90% of the 5 hour journey. Once we reached the top, it was indeed breathtaking and worth it. The sleeping tents did not have pillows, so if that’s a concern of yours, bring your own. The guides were very helpful, always checking in if we were doing ok. Also, we saw a few horses go by that was apparently an option, wish i had known that beforehand. The guides will carry your belongings for a fee, so it’s not a bad idea to have some Qtz on you. It was also very cold at the top during the night. Overall, awesome experience, just beware it is definitely an advanced trek!!Also, we overheard that the guides only make a small, unfair profit from the hikes, so we made sure to tip well.

It seems too good to be true but you get exactly what they are saying. Small groups, super friendly guides who are waiting for everyone ( one always going in front and one behind with the slowest people), basic food, a dorm with 12 beds and warm sleeping bags. It was a great tour eventhough due to weather conditions we couldn’t do the extra hike to fuego.

Insane ! must do think in Gwatemala. Hike is a bit hard, there is all the way sharply up but at the end there is a view worth miliony. Guides were insane ! Kind and helpfull all the way, taking care of You at each step.

Carlos and Benjamin were exceptional guides. Just a heads up .... This is a 80-90% incline climb as well as decline so although we enjoyed it. You do have the option to take a horse up.

Incredible. The guides were lovely, they took great care of us. The schedules were great, everything was very well planned, respecting everyone's tempo.
