We had a wonderful time, even though my boyfriend got sick on the bus ride (motion sickness). The guides and driver were very friendly and helpful. The trip up to the top was tougher than we anticipated, but with the expertise of Claudia and the rest of the team we arrived in good shape at the top. Luckily the snow started to melt when we arrived, so we could see all the nice colors and we also got to visit The Red Valley. I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone who is in a good physical shape. We had a great time.
We had a wonderfull trip and a great guide.
