It was a great hike. Only 11 people in our Group. Sarah was a perfect guide. She provided so much interesting information. Highly recommend this Tour if you don't want to walk back the same way you hiked up the peak. We were informed by Mail and WhatsApp about Pick up time and location. All went smoothly.

Really awesome hike with stunning views from the peaks! I highly recommend this experience. Having hiking shoes is a must, make sure to grab a hoodie and a waterproof/windproof jacket - I did this hike in March and it was sunny but at the peaks it can get quite cold and windy. The guide was really lovely, she took good care of the group and making sure everyone was safe and okay. If you have fear of heights it might be tricky in some areas.. It's a full day trip with a decent amount of walking/hiking so expect to be tired at the end of the day and feel your legs the next day :)

Sarah was a very nice guide who gave us a lot of interesting information and instructions about the tour. And with our driver, Marco, we never had any concerns on this demanding route. I was picked up on time and greeted very nicely. You should not have any physical disabilities or cardiovascular diseases on this tour! Is not "without" this walk. A real challenge
