An outstanding hike. It’s pretty steep so make sure you’re prepared to hike and have water. The climb and the views were great, and yet another vortex experience. Yah!

As the other's have already said, you don't need a guide. Just stay on the paths. We weren't experienced hikers and we did fine. It will be a great experience for you.
