My friend and I had a wonderful time on this hike! Lee and his wife communicated with us early on to let us know about pick up times and what to expect. This made us feel secure as this was our first time in Guatemala. We were picked up from our hotel in Antigua and met by our tour guide in Panajachel, where we took a speed boat to Lake Atitlan. There we stopped at the home to prepare for our hike. The hike itself is challenging, but doable. Make sure you wear good shoes. The view from the top is absolutely stunning. We then had lunch and explored the Solola Market. We had some free time so we took advantage and walked around. Lee and his wife showed us around and we got to see where the Mayan rituals happen, although there wasn't an active one. Overall, it was a real pleasant experience. We thank Lee, his wife, and our tour guide! I definitely recommend!

Awesome hike and amazing views! Definitely worth it if you find yourself in Antigua. The guide took us swimming after the tour was over as we waited for our ride back to town. The guide was super friendly, and made the hike very enjoyable.
