What people are saying about State of Mexico

Marco and Santiago were excellent guides. They were patient and friendly throughout the experience with our group of 10 people. They were both experts in mountain guiding and made sure that everyone in the group was safe. The hike was certainly challenging and we are regular hikers and in very good physical shape. This hike is not for everyone and you must pay attention to the physical requirements and the suggestions for dress. Good hiking shoes/boots, layered clothing and gloves are essential. You should be ready for a very long day as the tour left around 7:15 AM, a 2.5 hour drive to and from the volcano and a planned dinner following the hike. Plan to return to CDMX around 9 PM. Overall, we had a very positive experience and would recommend it to anyone as long as they pay attention to the requirements.

Marco our guide was super professionell, helpful and organized all the time! I felt safe during the whole hike! This hike was incredible and hard to describe! I highly can recommend it! But only for people, who are in very good physical health!! It’s really not easy to adapt to the less amount of ogygen. We got lunch and dinner (Tacos & Quesedilas) The whole trip was great! I would definitely do it again!

An incredible experience overall! The views from the top of the summit and the surrounding lakes are a tunning and the guides were really nice and helpful. Not for the faint-hearted! We spent around 7 hours hiking overall and some parts require a near vertical climb up the rock face. The way down is very sandy and slippery. However if you enjoy a challenge and love nature I highly recommend!

We had a really great experience climbing the summit of the nevado de toluca. Kind guides with a lot of experience. It was about 4 hours to the top and 3 hours down and we saw amazing views. The last bit contains some steep parts, but just being in a good shape is sufficient.

This experience was unbelievable!! Everyone was absolutely great and super supportive throughout the climb. The staff is wonderful. This is the highest I have gone up altitude wise, so it was definitely difficult, but its very doable! Definitely recommend this trip.
