One of my favourite tour companies I have ever booked with.. was a great service from start to finish… Juve’s knowledge and passion was evident throughout. I would highly recommend this company as the tour are also very small (not a massive group) so you also get a better experience

The climb was so worth it!!! It was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Prepare well for the altitude but it is a must visit!

Without a doubt a natural wonder that you can not miss … But it is definitely very physically demanding to be able to reach the top

Fantastic experience but tough to those who are not good at altitude like me. I used a horse to go up to half way for 60 solos, which was helpful. Early start is worth it as not many people around but FREEZING!
