Telica-trek was nice. 55USD includes all meals and camping gear and transport on chicken bus. You hike 4h from mud pools to Telica and then wander around the top. Second day 2-3h hike back. The hike was pretty beautiful and the crater on top is anazing. The only actual letdown was the camping site, which lies on the land of... More

The only company to let you go twice! They were very professional and friendly. The ride was a bit scary towards the end but the climb up and surrounding areas of beautiful and all for a good cause!

The volcanoboarding is a lot of fun. I was a little nervous that it would be just fast and uncontrollable, but the guides provided good instructions about how to control the board. Betsi, Miguel and Cormac definately had some great energy and told interesting stories about the volcanoes. Food and snacks were provided through the day. We had some great... More

We had a great time. The guides were great (volunteers) Natalia & Matilde. All funds go to local projects and this is the only group that goes back twice. Wear protective gear like long socks and boots preferably long pants and long sleeve shirt. There is no shade. Water will be provided for you as well as a light lunch... More

My girlfriend and I took the hike from Xela to Lake Atitlan with QuetzalTrekkers and thoroughly enjoyed it. The guides were great, very understanding and helpful. For my girlfriend particularly, who is fairly small (5"4, 45kg) and hasn't done much previous hiking, the hike was tough but she still thought it was brilliant. There were three guides and they were... More

Highly recommend this for everybody! Of all ages too. Our guide 'Matilda' was great fun and the set up for the day with the food also was perfect. I'm not quite sure why anybody would book with other tours as this is the only company that let you go down the volcano TWICE. Not only that but the guides are... More

We had a wonderful time doing the two day Telica trek with Quetzal. A special thanks to Emma and Dan, our guides, for taking such great care of us and making sure everything was perfect, from the food, snacks, to the pace and atmosphere. It could not be any better!

My mother and I did Volcano Boarding and an Overnight Telica Trek through Quetzaltrekkers. First, the office: staff were very nice, provided plenty of information on the tours, and weren't at all pushy. It was easy to book our tours with 1 and 2 days of notice. VOLCANO BOARDING: Our guide, Thomas, was excellent. He was fun, knowledgeable, and friendly.... More

If you want to go volcano boarding, Quetzaltrekkers is definitely the way to go. We already had an experience with the organization so we knew it was going to be great. For pretty much the same price as all other travel agencies (maybe +/- $2), you get to go down the volcano twice (2nd time is when you get more... More
