An experience that was unforgettable for me, I was fortunate to go with a medium group of 8 people / 7 foreigners and I Mexican / 2 very attentive, friendly and professional guides in all aspects / A long day / You do not need to bring anything, just the desire to connect with nature / it's totally worth it / when we made the descent we said goodbye with a light drizzle of snow water - wearing gloves as well as a complete raincoat will be very helpful / From 7 am to 8 pm a time of quality to connect with nature make new friends and learn how beautiful MEXICO is. Karl and Gali excellent guides very kind and had very kind and helpful gestures with the team, highly recommended.

Allen and Santiago were the best guides for our Nevado de Toluca hike. It was the best judgement to call off the summit climb in the beginning as the moment we came down the storm sit and it started to hail. Amazing views and will be doing it again. Also please do your research while coming for this, air is thin at this altitude and hiking uphill is bit strenuous

Simply unique. A chance to accomplish a real challenge (potentially once in a lifetime opportunity to reach 4685m). All of this done with the guidance of a real expert. Alan has been the best to guide us, but also to share his knowledge Mexico.

Everything super good, the transportation, the tour... the super-trained guides and great vibes. 100% recommended

Alan was knowledgeable and extremely professional. Highly recommend
