The hike itself was super nice, the guide was also super nice, there's nothing to complain about. The meeting point is wrongly indicated, we waited almost half an hour and the bus was on a different street. Especially the bus for the return transport was terrible! It is very old with very old uncomfortable cloth seats full of dust and stains. The whole interior was very dirty, there were also old masks inside, not Corona compliant at all. They also save on food, the soup for 60 pesos is already too expensive and you have to pay for it yourself, the simple cheap restaurant only includes two tacos and a drink. All in all, the tour is too expensive for the price paid and what is offered and not recommended!
