Great tour. Would recommend even I think we could do it on our own as we had car. But we really enjoyed. The hike could be longer as it was only 2 hours all together not 4 as advertised. The driver and tour guide were friendly and even we stuck in the snow they had to put big effort to get the bus back on the road. They keep us safe and comfortable. Well done. Over all great communication and organisation.

Our tour has been canceled partially (the volcano trekking part) due to weather conditions, we made only the Sky Lagoon part of it and it was a very excellent experience even if it's a bit commercial and the time spent there was a bit in rush (I would prefer staying there at minimum for 2-3h ).

Fantastic experience overall, we were lucly to see the lights and it was great to have the dome to go in and out of to keep warm. The only downside was that the only way to arrive is by taxi which is £55 each way

Highly informative. Learned a lot from the guide. The volcano and hot springs were great!

Nice hike, great lications later, super food (scata)
