    After a year of pandemic, going back to the caminito was definitely one of the highlights of my summer! We have been lucky to have Paul as our tour guide and it was sooo well worth it. (Thank you so much!) Alora tours the agency, was very helpful. We arrived through train and we missed the bus to the entrance and they made sure that we are accounted for in the list. Very nice treatment! Highly recommended !!!

    It was easy to find parking outside of the restaurant meeting place which was also free. Check in was a breeze and the staff was extremely nice. They provided us with helmets. The tour itself was phenomenal filled with lots of information. Highly suggest bringing water. At the end of the tour they give you a voucher for a beverage. To take the bus back to the starting point make sure you have exact change on you for the bus. You have to walk up the hill to the second bus stop to take the correct bus. Our tour guide was phenomenal! Thank you so much

    If my group did not have RAKEL as our guide I would not been able to do the tour. She was great - looking after me - 80. Never again, I had to do it. Kilimanjaro was much easier - )I was on Uhuru Peak 31.12.2002 at 09.30.) Main problem was the heat 35-37C
