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.

We had a wonderful morning with Val, Pame and their team of folks in the studio, market and tortillerias. Everyone was super friendly and knowledgeable,band the street food vendors cooked up such delicious treats for us! The market was fascinating - all the different fruits and veg and sheets of pork crackling! And then the experience of making our salsas, meat fillings and then the joys of wrapping up our tacos - a superb experience highly recommended.

Julio was our tour guide, and he was great! We got to see everything as promised, had time to see the different shops and locations. Very nice and informing along the way and drive there was very nice.

It was a nice trip. Senior Victor drove us safely to the different spots and Roberto told us historic details. Both are very friendly and kind, so we had great conversations. We would go again

I enjoyed experiencing the different barrios from a different perspective. Our guide Ivan was really nice and I enjoyed conversation, also with other participants.
