    Definitely a hard hike, up to 12kft in one push is no easy task. But it was worth it, and the guides were excellent and fun to be around. They provided so much gear for us, and made the experience possible. The views of Fuego erupting and spewing lava were unforgettable.

    This was one of the highlights of my time in Antigua. I was a little nervous operating an ATV for the first time, but my guide made me feel comfortable and safe. All of the stops were great and we were fortunate to have perfect weather which made for phenomenal photos. The guide also took videos and photos throughout the day and sent everything to us via WhatsApp which was an added bonus. I also like how Simoon Rentals and Tours reached out the day before to confirm the tour and gave final instructions. They were organized, professional and very friendly. I would not hesitate to book more activities through them. Thank you so much for a phenomenal day.

    This was a wonderful afternoon activity in Antigua, and Simoon tours were the best guys to do it with. The equipment was top notch, and our tour guide was amazing. Can not recommend this tour enough. I'll be back to climb a volcano with them in the future..... with my legs, no atv

    We found many places in Antigua a bit overwhelming for young children, but Hobbitenango held our 6 years old and 11 years old attention perfectly. It is easy to catch an Uber or taxi for the 15-20 minute ride from Antigua. The activities are fun and the scenery is incredible. I recommend about 3 hours for this outing.

    This tour was great, and our tour guide Esmé was amazing! She was full of fun facts and very knowledgeable about Antigua, Guatemalan history, and the volcanoes. We took about an hour and a half long shuttle to the base of the volcano, then it was another hour and a half long hike up to the “top” (you’re not going to look down a crater anywhere and see actual lava). You can also ride a horse up for 150 quetzals (and back down for another 150 quetzals), which one person in our party did for part of the way up. He did end up getting ahead of us for much of the hike since the horses are led by the horse’s owner, but the hike itself isn’t too terrible—it’s a pretty steady incline on a dirt path with some nice views. But the highlight is really when you hit the dried lava, which you can walk along, make s’mores in one of the steam-producing craters, and even buy pizza from a guy who set up shop next to a larger crater (not an official part of the tour). The pizza’s 50 USD, but is one of the highlights of our trip (also safe to eat in our experience for any non-locals). The tour also provides a nice lunch with chicken, beans, guacamole, etc. too. We made it back to Antigua around 3 pm, so had plenty of time in the afternoon to hang around the city.

    Lionel was the most awesome guide, and spoke good English! Perfect trip - just the right level hike for us - moderate uphill and different from other experiences of hiking we've done.

    Very cool experience and Juan-Miguel did a great job. We did the harder climb to the Acatenango summit which was very cool and worthwhile. Bring hiking shoes and layers since it's warm at the start and colder, windy at the top.

    The hike was medium to low level difficulty, but the altitude made us very short of breath. Incredible views and landscapes.out of our group of 7, three paid for the horses (about $80), and the 4 of us walked. Bring layers - we took the morning hike and it started off chilly, got very warm, then windy at the top. Marshmallow roasting was fun, our group opted to get the pizza from the guy who cooks it over the steam vent. It’s expensive ($50) but was delicious, our group split a large and it fed 8 people. Really unique experience. The horses follow you most of the way up in case you can’t do the hike. Rent the walking stick from the kids in the parking lot, near the top the lava gravel gets slippery.

    Great experience. I recommend it to anyone who is an adrenaline junkie. Guide Fernando is one of the best tour guides I have ever met. There were not a few of them

    The walking tour was a must for visiting Antigua! I had much more appreciation for the things I saw after learning about the history. Carlos was my guide and he was very knowledgeable and friendly! He answered any questions I had and made excellent recommendations for places to eat, drink, coffee, etc. I was very comfortable with him and in the city in general, even being a solo female traveler. We finished the tour over coffee and a chess game. Highly recommend!

    I looked up the information online and then booked with Tami in the store. She was incredibly helpful and though my Spanish is quickly improving, she was kind enough to use English to ensure that I fully understood the trip. I did the Pacaya Volcano Sunset Tour with Diego! It was wonderful. It was a life goal of mine to be on a volcano and this experience was outstanding! I'm an avid long-distance runner and let me say, this hike is challenging. Give or take, it's about 2 miles each way. When we arrived we hooked up with a guia from the volcano. It was nice having two guides to talk to and ask questions of. I was also really lucky, it was only me and only two other hikers. (Loved getting money back from the tiered pricing.) I know it doesn't sound like much but there aren't really switchbacks. You are able to take breaks along the way. Near the top there is a store, we paused there before going into the lava field. The lava fields were more challenging to walk on. Watch your ankles. In alignment with other reviews I've read, I 100% agree that roasting marshmallows over a heat vent has to be one of the coolest (hottest lol) things I've ever done! After "playing" in the lava field for a bit, the volcano guide took us up another 400 feet and there's no other way for me to describe it than saying it was like walking through volcanic sand. Coming down the "front" was very steep and the stepping/sliding motion was a lot of fun. (Wear tall socks and gaiters!) We then stopped for dinner. Watch your food, the random dogs may try to steal it :-) We then hiked down, returned to the car, and were dropped off back at the store!!! In total, my Garmin had us just under 4 miles total with an elevation gain of 1,417 feet. For those unfamiliar with this part of Guatemala, please remember you are starting at an elevation of 6,000ft.

    Very good experience! Highly recommend the horses unless you are a frequent hiker in great shape. The guys at the bottom for horses tried to double charge us so we had to walk down which kinda sucked (nothing to do with this tour). Guide who walked with us up the volcano was the BEST! I wore the worst running shoes with no grip and almost plunged to my death a few times LOL. He held my hand the ENTIRE TIME! We walked back slowly and talked the whole entire time, he didn’t even mind that the group was way ahead. Thank you so much to the guide!!! As for the hotsprings, they were very relaxing. Unfortunately I think they forgot about us at the hotsprings and we were there for like 4hrs and it was pretty late by the time we got back, like 7pm. For everyone saying it’s not actual lava, no it’s not because it erupted so long ago. But it’s still crazy to roast marshmallows from a volcano!

    Mirco and Luiz were amazing. They were helpful during the tour, but they also gave me other travel tips throughout the city! I would highly recommend them again!

    What a wonderful experience! We were a group of four who went with a private guide. Marcos was so nice and picked us up on time and right where we needed to be (from our Airbnb), so transportation to Pacaya was very smooth and easy! There, our guide was awesome! He was so kind and good-humored. The best part was eating delicious pizza at the top of our hike. The hike was very manageable and absolutely beautiful, but I might recommend going earlier to avoid warmer temps and more people. Even though the drive is a bit long, the trip to Pacaya was definitely worth it!
