Day 1: Mexico City - Pico De Orizaba, Mexico

Location: Pico de Orizaba

Duration: 2 Days

Departure Time: 06:00

Arrival at the Campsite, acclimatization walk, and welcome gathering
This experience begins at 6:00 am in Mexico City, this one is the father of volcanoes, the adrenaline that is experienced only when heading to the town of San Miguel Zoapan by road, is inexplicable. In this small town is where we will leave our vehicles, to later have a delicious breakfast at Lalo's house, our leading guide with more than 150 ascents to the peak and just over 85 summits, our team of guides will provide us with a technical talk, touching points such as the "rope system" or "use of crampons and ice axes", as well as the best practices for walking on a glacier.
We will continue to ride the 4x4 vehicles operated by tenants to promote local consumption. It is then that we will enter the forest on a path that is quite difficult to access. Once we arrive at the refuge, we will set up the camp, as well as start cooking and eating our delicious meal. We will take an acclimatization walk with our guides to finally return to camp to rest.

Day 2: Pico De Orizaba - Mexico City, Mexico

Location: Mexico City

Climb the Pico de Orizaba and transfer back to Mexico City

At midnight, we will start getting ready to climb. Accompanied by your guide and your rope, you will begin to climb the route of "the labyrinths". When you achieve to get out of them, it will be time to put on crampons, store poles, take out an ice ax and tie yourself with your rope. It is then when you will begin to ascend the immense glacier of this beautiful volcano. At some point of this journey, we will experience the sunrise, in an impressive way, appreciating the shadow that this beautiful peak generates with the sun over the horizon, it is spectacular! If we are successful, we will be conquering the summit at 5640 mamsl a few hours after sunrise.
Later we will descend to the camp by the same route, to reach the refuge where the 4x4 trucks will be waiting for us to go down to San Miguel Zoapan, where we can eat a delicious farewell meal prepared by our guides. This is where our experience in the Colossus of Mexico ends. Get ready to start your journey back home at 16:30, arriving in Mexico City at around 20:30 hrs.
NOTE: Previous experience in high mountains is necessary to carry out this tour. Before the ascent, our guides will review with you the techniques of progression and safety on ice.

To this day, this is the best tour we've ever done together as a couple! The fun activities, great hotels and nice guides worth the money! We were always taken care of and they made sure that we had a good time. This tour is definitely worth taking.

The Bamba Team really made my journey one of the most memorable experiences of my life! Still so nice and supportive! They handled everything and responded to each question within a few minutes. I wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone. Especially if you want to do a lot of activities and travel to a lot of different places without feeling rushed. They've also helped me with specific issues that weren't covered by the tour, as well as answering general questions. Thank you so much for making my journey so enjoyable!

The tour was fantastic; I was able to visit some of Japan's most beautiful locations, and the accommodations were excellent, with convenient access to the city's best attractions. Also, our tour guide was fantastic. I will pick bamba again and recommend the tour to anyone who wants to see Japan while having a good time!!

I only have good words about our trip to Kenya. The entire experience was totally magical and I struggle to say how fantastic it was. We were fortunate enough to have a brilliant vehicle for ourselves, but we had great luck with David for our guide too. He was very knowledgeable, courteous and nice. Thank you for helping to create this fantastic safari experience. I Highly recommend this company.

Bamba Experience has been the best tour guide I've ever had. Every tour has been a thrilling experience. There are so many things to choose from. Bamba has been extremely helpful in providing us with all of the necessary information for our departures and activities! Bamba has made this a simple and enjoyable experience. I'll certainly tell my friends and family about it! Thank you very much, Bamba!!

Feb 20 2020

We organized a trip through Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia on the hop-on, hop-off bus. It made the trip so much simpler for us as first-time travelers because we just had to send an email to arrange the bus, which avoided the hassle of looking for the best price and so on! We also had a number of tours included, they were all amazing and saved us the trouble of trying to find the best offers on our own; it also meant we got to see a lot of stuff we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Overall, it was a fantastic experience that I will strongly suggest and use again!

Our Bamba tour of Vietnam was fantastic. We had a lot of new experiences and all of the help we needed to make this a stress-free vacation. The well-organized accomodation and transportation were excellent. We will certainly use Bamba in the future.

Jun 25 2019

I had booked our Uyuni Salt Flats & Desert Adventure 3D/2N (Uyuni to Atacama) tour via an Australian travel agency, but they had made an error and refused to assist us or take responsibility. This was very difficult for us because we wanted to have a stress-free honeymoon. I contacted Bamba and I asked if we could talk on the phone so they made the improvements to our tour reservation that our travel agent declined to make. The quality of service was exceptional and they generously offered to us a complimentary gift because it was our honeymoon. I can't say enough good things about Bamba.
