Best Decision ever. Our Guide was Alvero (He is my Angel). It was my birthday and I decided to take this Hike trip and It was the most memorable day possible. Pick-up wasa smooth and on time, very well instructed. its a medium to intense sort of hike. The distance is doable but lots of wind, slippery sand path and rocky trails which needs your 100 percent attention. Dress really warm and bring food, water. From explaining about the hike, taking care of us, birthday stop before climbing, taking good care of everyone with different pace to guide the hike, we had enough time to have the best view for the lunch and about 2.45 hours at the top. Closest route to see the volcano. Great driver. Best group. On the way back I was almost going to miss my shuttle for airport, so they all agreed to drop me first then proceed. They made everything flexible and well managed. One of the happiest days of my life. I will never forget the birthday and Alvero <3 for making it memorable.

Unique nature experience! The group leaders from two groups were great, made an effort to explain this natural phenomenon to us. Recommended and until then to the active volcanic eruption is almost 6.5 km long. Lots of climbs and hikes on hard stone paths are seriously tough... but definitely worth seeing... THANK YOU!

Siggy was very knowledgeable and upbeat during a physically demanding 12 km hike. He engaged all group members and connected on a personal level regardless of nationality. Siggy was safety conscious and assisted in the descent where I could not do so myself due to physical limitation.

Very interesting excursion. The trek is about 11 km long and takes 3/4 hours. It is an excursion for everyone, I recommend trekking shoes and windproof jacket because it can be very strong!

This tour activity was like, um, super fun. Holy crapola, I was like yeeehaaaaw during the hike, because it was soooooooo fun.
