Hubo un problema de comunicación con la empresa proveedora del tour, el día anterior enviaron un mensaje indicando el pick up a las 4.40-4.55 am pero llegaron 4.10 y no estábamos listos. Cuando les pedimos que esperaran 5 minutos, accedieron, pero una vez que bajamos (a los 5 min) no había nadie. Nos quedamos esperando y fuimos los últimos en ser recogidos tipo 5 am, con mucha incertidumbre por si no pasaban por nosotros. Por supuesto, nadie contestaba en los teléfonos del proveedor de la excursión. La excursión en sí muy bien, el guía atento, la comida suficiente y completa. Sin embargo, hubiera preferido una mejor organización y llegar antes a la montaña en sí, porque ya estaba llena de gente cuando llegamos. Un tip: no viajar en la parte de atrás de la van porque no prenden el AC y no llega el viento fresco de las ventanillas que se pueden abrir en la parte de adelante. Además, se siente muchísimo el camino sin asfaltar. Llegamos mareados y con muchísimo calor.

Amazing experience. Guide Marco is very attentive and patient. While other guides were shouting at their group to go faster, Marco was patient in waiting for everyone and even helped those who were having difficulties. Only caveat was the heat we went through on the way back. Van's air conditioning was off (I don't know if it was broken or if it was an option), but it was unbearable. Anyway, I definitely recommend it. The location is also impressive, the journey is not easy, a steep climb and in altitude, but it is worth it.

The climb is extremely steep, it requires a lot of the physical, the guide gave us the horse tip several times, and accompanied me until I found one. The guide was with the group in several parts of the route, and in addition she is a great photographer. Breakfast and lunch were in a beautiful and very tasty place!
