based on 3 reviews

Bernardo was an excellent guide. We were waited on hand and foot by him and a driver/cook from the pico climbing hostel in tlachichuca. He was kind patient and very accommodating to our needs and pace on the climb. He was very knowledgeable and made sure we were safe at all times. Would not have made the summit without him. Please be advised this is a difficult climb due to the altitude especially if you have never been that high. We acclimatized a week in Mexico City as well as hiked nevado de Toluca first and still felt the effects of the altitude. Highly recommend don’t know why people pay American guide companies thousands of dollars for this.

Climbing the Iztaccíhuatl is only suitable for experienced hikers/mountaineers but is totally worth it. You should have high altitude experience and be well trained. Sometimes you reach your own limits here and only make it up with a strong will and good guides. The ascent is very diverse with steep and flat hiking trails, climbing and also passing the glacier with crampons. Since the shape of the volcano resembles a sleeping woman, small peaks have to be crossed before the main peak. The company was great and treated me well. In the end, I have my three guides to thank for reaching the summit. Thank you for that and clear recommendation.

This is definitely recommended for everyone. In two days you will discover a lot of Mexico City. The guides spoke English quite well and knew a lot about the places. Also, the pace was relaxed and you got plenty of free time.

I traveled to 3 cities near by Mexico city and the guides are very nice and helpful. You can see the churches, cathedrals, local market, silver shop and mine

Leticia and LiLy were excellent tour guides. The accommodation communication and punctuality helped me trust them to have and enjoy a good tour.
