    Upon booking, I'd read the negative and positive reviews. I'd paid more attention to the negative reviews because usually those are the most accurate descriptions. Having said this, Fabio was a badass guide. The history lesson on the way was very informative. There was a total of 8 of us for this trip. The trail was very easy to follow. Steep but easy to follow. We worked our way up to 13,900ish feet. I was really hoping to get to 14k but clouds started rolling in, and we had to turn back. Besides, we'd agreed to that designated point. Our group was very spread out depending on climbing strength/abilities, but everybody was always within eyesight. At no point did I feel concerned. The hike lasted about 3 hours and it was an out and back of about 1.25 miles for a total of 2.5 miles. This might seem very little, but, trust me, it's just right for a couple first timers. We hiked about 900 feet of elevation. STRONGLY RECOMMEND FABIO. STRONGLY.

We had a really great experience climbing the summit of the nevado de toluca. Kind guides with a lot of experience. It was about 4 hours to the top and 3 hours down and we saw amazing views. The last bit contains some steep parts, but just being in a good shape is sufficient.

The organisation of the trip was done very professionally, the guide was serious and friendly ! I had such a great experience during the tour I booked again another day trip with this company ! Totally recommend

Magnificent experience. Well organized, with enough time to reach the summit. Fernando was a Great guy.

Nice tour with a beautiful landscape and a very friendly guide.
