Increíble experience, our guide was very smart and knew a lot , she was making sure at all times that we were understanding and learning, she was passionate about teaching what she knows , a local that was very fluent in Spanish with all the terms it was truly impressive, I am bad at names so I can’t remember her name . I recommend to do this early in the morning as it gets very packed with people later on . I did climed all the way to the top of the Dome , for this make sure you eat and drink water you must be physically fit and be able to be in close up area with humidity and not much air , it was incredible to be up there but I am glad my mom didn’t go because ones you get in there is no way back you will have people behind you , I must say it was a hard climb .
