We did the trek with Expotour, and had Antonio as our guide and Hugo as translator. Fantastic experience, and I can fully recommend Expotours. A special mention for Hugo who was fantastic throughout, and definitely made the trek even better for us all. Thank you!

This trek was awesome. Been there with Expotur. Ask for Antonio for your guide and Hugo the super energic translator who was always attentive to the need of people.
