Guide Santiago was wonderful. Other reviewers have talked about not going on the weekend due to the park being crowded. We had no choice due to scheduling. Big mistake. Thousands of people there. Due to crowds we could not drive to top parking lot close to crater. Instead we waited in line over an hour to park at lower lot then another hour and a half to crowd into the back of a pickup with 15 other people for a 30 min ride up to the top lot. This made it to where we didn’t have enough time to summit. Made it 500 verticals feet from top but had to turn back. Then waited another hour and a half to board a pickup and head back down. So not go on a weekend! Gave this 5 stars because it was not Santiago’s fault we booked on a weekend. Had it been during the week we would have definitely reached the summit.

Marco and Santiago were excellent guides. They were patient and friendly throughout the experience with our group of 10 people. They were both experts in mountain guiding and made sure that everyone in the group was safe. The hike was certainly challenging and we are regular hikers and in very good physical shape. This hike is not for everyone and you must pay attention to the physical requirements and the suggestions for dress. Good hiking shoes/boots, layered clothing and gloves are essential. You should be ready for a very long day as the tour left around 7:15 AM, a 2.5 hour drive to and from the volcano and a planned dinner following the hike. Plan to return to CDMX around 9 PM. Overall, we had a very positive experience and would recommend it to anyone as long as they pay attention to the requirements.

Marco our guide was super professionell, helpful and organized all the time! I felt safe during the whole hike! This hike was incredible and hard to describe! I highly can recommend it! But only for people, who are in very good physical health!! It’s really not easy to adapt to the less amount of ogygen. We got lunch and dinner (Tacos & Quesedilas) The whole trip was great! I would definitely do it again!
