Day 1 - we meet at Antigua, and from there we drive our way to the village at the slopes of the volcano, we hike half of the volcano and set our campsite.
Day 2 - we start hiking as early as possible to reach the summit and then descend to the village, probably before lunch so we can eat something.

One of the best experiences of my life! Nestor was a fantastic guide. He was early, punctuality is great. I should have brought hiking shoes before doing another tour like this. He was patient with me as we descended the volcano when I had to empty dirt from my shoes. He was very knowledegable about the history of Guatemala which enriched the experience for me. I would highly recommend this tour and Nestor as a guide. Advice about the site would be a list of needed items. If there, it was unclear.
