The driver was excellent, safe, and patient. He knew where to go and was happy to let us chatter away. The van was spacious for 4 adults and clean / well maintained. He showed up on time at the location. The volcano hike was very challenging (I’m 45 and moderately active, live in nyc, walk a lot but do not gym since pandemic) but very worth the pain. The views are incredible. Our volcano guide was very nice and attentive and we met a lot of other nice locals on our hike. The lunch at the spa wasn’t great. The food was average. Overall ok after the hike but not something I’d rave about. Good coffee. The spa experience was disorganized but that is because it’s a local spa spot so they aren’t catering to one group or individual. Beware: no one spoke English at the spa and it felt a bit like we were intruding. The ladies in our group wore bikinis and were stared at and followed by multiple local men- it was fine, we were intruders… just know going in and set expectations accordingly.

The hike was kind of challenging but great, the walking stick rental was $2 but worth every penny because I have a bad knee and I didn’t want to give up and ride a horse:) All uphill and not used to the altitude. The marshmallow roasting was a fun ending! After the hike we drove about 40 minutes to a fancy resort for the lunch, then went on the ‘thermal circuit’. We didn’t get much for instructions so ask questions! There were four small pools ranging from something like 75 to 105 F. Free smoothies too! It felt quite luxurious! Our driver simply waited until we were done, so we stayed at the pools for a couple hours, felt really good in the tired muscles:) I wish I had brought a clean set of clothes do that I didn’t have to put my sweaty hiking clothes back on afterward

I want to suggest this activity to anybody who is in doubt: it is sooo worth it! The only remark I have is that you should not expect the hike to be very easy. It is manageable, but don't expect the walk in the park, you gonna have to sweat for it!! Such a great pairing with the hot springs - outstanding experience. Relaxes your tired muscles as best as possible! Lunch was also very delicious. I highly recommend this tour!
