I did this with my hubby. We have a super friendly, caring, helpful, informative and patience guide, AMERICO!
He has been so thoughtful throughout the trip. He kept reminding me to walk slowly, and take rest to avoid altitude sickness. At the last part of the hike after rainbow mountain, I wanted to give it a try to the "Stone Mountain" next to it. Honestly, for seasoned hikers or any casual hikers, it is nothing but I have fear of heights. My guide was so patience, holding my hand, guiding me every single step up and down. He is really amazing!
The whole tour experience was amazing including the drive journey and lunch! I will give 101% score!
