What people are saying about State of Mexico

I had a fantastic experience with Mauricio that I will never forget. He was patient and encouraging in guiding me to the summit of Orizaba while making sure I was safe and not experiencing altitude sickness. Keep in mind that this is a VERY challenging experience due to the high altitude, and it shouldn't be attempted without acclimatizing through other high altitude hikes

The guide was awesome but please be aware that this is a very difficult client and should only be attended by experience climbers

Very complete

The tour was amazing the very trained guides and I met some of the best places in the city.

Great experience everyone was so friendly and helpful had an awesome time

It is totally worth it, it is known quite a few ideas, super recommended.
