    Excellent experience. Our tour guide Daniel was incredibly nice. He was right on time to pick us up from the hotel. The ride to the Volcano was a bit long, but our tour guide made it up with a pleasant conversation, providing detail information of the area. It was my first time visiting Pacaya, what an unforgettable experience. I would recommend it. My advice would be make sure to wear a nice pair of hiking boots.

    Erwin truly made our this tour the highlight of our trip. He is so knowledgeable of the history of the country , i learned so much more than I expected. He did everything to make us comfortable. He was diligent in helping us navigate cost and suggested items. Although we were not in our native country, Erwin truly made us feel like we weren’t far from home. I would highly recommend this tour, and any other services provided by this company. He also has an great music playlist ! Thank you for showing us a great time!

    We had a great tour with Erwin and Daniel. Erwin has a teaching background and shared his vast knowledge of Guatemalan culture and history with us. He led the tour in a way that truly met our needs. His associate Daniel escorted us along the volcano, while showing us local plants along the way. It was also helpful to have Daniel tell us how if we were getting closer to the top. The tour was done at our pace and we did not feel rushed. If you are not sure if you can do the hike, having a private guide will give you the confidence to keep going even though it was exhausting at times. It was a beautiful view from the top and totally worth it. It took us 1.5 hours to get to the Lava Store - with lots of breaks in between. After the tour, we all had a great lunch together, as recommended by Erwin. Erwin does a great job of ensuring the traveler's needs are met. Go book this tour!

    We typically book private guides for our tours when we travel. We wanted a private guide for Pacaya Volcano especially so that we could get individualized service. We were so glad that we booked this private tour. Erwin and Daniel were a great team. Erwin was the overall tour guide/manager, and he provided the historical and cultural information during the drive. Daniel escorted us up the mountain and provided us some information about the local plants and trees. Both Erwin and Daniel were very nice and easy to talk to. We have used a lot of private guides in our travels, and Erwin is probably one of the best that we have used. Erwin made it clear that he believes in quality standards for any tour. Why use a private guide for Pacaya? If you are hesitant about climbing up the mountain on foot, but still up for the challenge, then having a private guide is helpful. We did not feel rushed. We could take as many breaks as we needed. Although I go to the gym several times per week, this hike was still difficult because of the soft ground and steep inclines at times. It was also very helpful to have Daniel literally hold my hand through some of rocky volcanic terrain up on top of the mountain. Being of short stature (4'10") I found it a little harder to step up and step down in some places. After the tour, Erwin provided a local recommendation for lunch (not included in the tour). It was probably one of the best meals we had in Antigua. We all had lunch together, and then they dropped us back at our AirBnB. Thank you Erwin and Daniel for your warm hospitality. This was an experience we will never forget.

    This was one of the best things we did in Guatemala!!! It's truly an incredible experience with mind-blowing views! The hike is tough but the guides are more than happy to go slow and take their time. It felt like it went pretty quick. We got the horses for our kids (ages 10 and 11) and very glad we did because there was no whining! Ha! Erwin was excellent. Full of knowledge, passionate about what he does, and wants to give everyone the best experience possible. If you ask, he will take time for pizzas up top! He's very accomodating.

    Two couples, 28 and 62 years old. Erwin was a great guide who also does historical and cultural tours, so he had a ton of knowledge about Antigua in general. He speaks Spanish and English very well. The drive was comfortable in his car, with great conversation. When we got to the volcano, he came with us part of the way up the volcano, and I’m not sure if it was a local restriction or what, but he handed us off to a young guy named Daniel, who accompanied us up the rest of the way, which is a really easy hike. Daniel was great - he was climbing up the cliff along the path to grab us local plants and show us what the locals use them for, and he was very friendly. We bought pizza and beers from a guy on top of the volcano who cooks the pizzas using the natural volcanic vents- it was actually delicious and a one of a kind experience. It was overall a great way to spend the day!

    Erwin was an absolutely wonderful guide! He provided so much rich information along our tour and hike. If you are looking for an incredible private tour, Erwin should be the first choice!

    Erwin was fantastic!! Cannot recommend this tour enough!! Erwin came early and adapted the trip based on our interests. He shared so much information about Guatemala which really enriched our experience. He is incredibly knowledgable and kind. He gave us a PHENOMENAL lunch recommendation for after the tour and, based on our positive experience, we arranged for a private airport transfer from Lake Atitlán with him at the end of our trip. He was early picking us up there too! Incredibly accommodating, kind, and helpful. You will be so happy you booked this tour or any other with Erwin!

    We liked the tour, unluckily it was raining and it was foggy, so we couldn't see anything, no views. The way was easy to go, no hard walking. We come back in October and do the tour again with sunshine!
