The climb up to the summit of Nevado de Toluca was definitely a crowning highlight of my trip to Mexico. Although it is by no means a stroll in the park, I was grateful that I didn't have to be a mountaineer to reach the summit of the fourth highest peak in Mexico and the seventeenth highest peak in North America. The views throughout the entire hike are magnificent and stirring. Our guide Johannes was fantastic. He was very patient and easygoing, always very watchful to potential altitude sickness issues. He has taken trekkers up Nevado de Toluca over a hundred times, so you are definitely in good hands. I would highly recommend this trek up to the summit. This is the Mexico of storied volcanoes, one I will always remember fondly.

We had the best experience climbing El Nevado de Toluca with Carlos from Travesia Mexico, and his guide companions. He took care of all the aspects of the trip, made us feel very safe and had a great laugh! We highly recommend his services !

Welcoming and very professional. As described, the volcano is sublime and the view from above is breathtaking. The trek is still quite sporty, dizzying and the last straight line is climbed, with your hands.

What a great day!! Carlos was an amazing guide and it was a perfect break from all the city noises - highly recommend this trip!!

Awesome! Well worth it! Good and experienced guide with humor!
