Carlos was very friendly, energized and explained everything. We set off from the city, it takes 2 hours to get there. The track was easy, we did 14 km in total. There was no big hike, mostly on narrow path (good for people who are not used to high altitude). Views were amazing though. We chose the track with a nice small waterfall. As the track was easy, you can wear sneakers, you wont need any special shoes, but bring a jacket!

I liked the tracking organization very much. It seems that everything is thought out to the smallest detail. We were taken to the volcanoes, provided with equipment and even water with snacks hid in the depths of our backpacks; they showed us beautiful views of the national park, fed a hearty lunch with a view of the mountains, and we returned to Mexico City. The speed and route adapt to the capabilities and desires of the tourist group, and it's just amazing, where else can you find such a thing? Carlos, our guide, is beyond praise, both as a person and as a professional, communication can go both in English and Spanish, but even if you do not know the languages at all, every effort will be made to interact, and in the most friendly and positive way.

A whole trip was amazing. I enjoyed it so much! My guides was so kind, and keep his eyes on me, find the best speed for and I could also stop if I needed it. He also gave me a warmet jacket! I could just recommend this trip to anyone intrested in wild beauty of nature and volcano! Now, actually there was not another tourist we meet on our tour in the wild :-) the whole park was just for us. I felt myself like I was in the story of Lord of the ring:-)
