The guide and the hike were very nice. The views of Popocatepetl were fantastic. The only problem was that the travel time was not accurate. Due to the condition of the dirt roads, our tour which was supposed to end at 4:00 pm did not end until 7:00 pm.

I had a slightly different circuit because of the coronavirus but despite this I loved discovering this beautiful place, incredible views, the guide was great and taught me a lot of things, it was a wonderful day I recommend without hesitation!

A great experience from A to Z! Unlimited Experiences is a great organization! We were well informed and picked up on time! At the end we received a present, that was a great surprise! I would be happy to recommend this experience to everyone!

Ariel is an awesome guide. Knowledgeable, social, patient and generally a cool guy! Regards, Raúl (from Netherlands/Curaçao)
