“Remarkable experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Going to the Nevado de Colima by itself is an amazing experience but going with such a nice guide, made the experience even better. Gerardo the guide is a very friendly and knowledgeable guy with a lot of experience, he knows perfectly well the route and he helped us during the whole trip teaching us how to avoid altitude sickness something that we witness in other tourists that were there without a guide and with any expertise. I highly recommend the tour it was completely worth it.

“Excellent last minute help”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We had a day in Ciudad Guzman to visit the nearby volcano, but our other tour arrangements fell through. Gerardo came to our rescue at the last minute and gave us a great trip up the mountain, despite a broken foot. The volcano itself was closed but we drove up the 'hill' next to it. From the end of the driving track it's only 1.8km to the top with views of the volcano nearby, but due to the altitude (4,000m) it was hard work, so be prepared -it was reasonably challenging, although we are pretty fit. Also much colder at the top of the mountain - around 10 degrees Celsius compared with 25 degrees or so down in c. Guzman. Apparently it is best to go in the morning as the clouds often roll in after lunch.

Gerardo was great and speaks good English. In addition to driving us up and down the mountain, he also added an unscheduled visit to the lake on the edge of town, as well as recommending where to eat and where to buy Mexican boots & other specialities. We would definitely recommend him.

“Couldn't be better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Nevado de Colima is an astonishing place yet going with Nevado de Colima Tours made a huge difference to our experience.

Everything was taken care of properly; communication for planning and organization was great. The treatment was very personal and friendly. It was noticeable that the guide knew what we has doing and had the proper equipment to keep us safe and enjoying.

If I was to go back, I would definitely go again with Nevado de Colima Tours.

Thanks a million!
