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 !

We had a friendly and knowledgeable guide. All the participants were friendly and talkative. Food was excellent. Didn’t eat again till following day. Great way to spend a day in Mexico.

It was such a fun experience and while I didn't win with Taco Championship belt for being able to eat all the tacos I had a fantastic time with my very educated guide Fred aka Queso!

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

Excellent tour guide, delicious food and a lovely walk around the neighbourhood, would recommend!
