My partner and I along with a lovely couple from America did this trip with OX. With guide David. It's one of the toughest treks we've done given the loose volcanic rock and steep climb for the first part of the walk, the second part was easier, but the rucksacks are heavy which makes it tougher.

Before we booked with OX, we've taken a look with few other agency in Antigua, but OX is the one with the most numbers of choices among the different hiking treks in Guatemala. And their website simply provide the most thorough information when compared with others What I like about them is... More

I had an amazing time with OX. The guide Lando was really helpful and supported everyone in the group. Everything was taken care of like it should be when you book a tour. There was nice food and drinks, the guide knows his stuff and the tents where good. The hike was not easy but it was really awesome. We... More

Reliable and fun guides. Good trek on Acatenango volcano. The only downside is that I felt too rushed to get downhill by a certain deadline. Our group was small (5 of us). This is a streneous trek, so need a bit more time to get down. All in all, good trekking company.

First off I want to mention, unfortunately I did not end up getting to go on a tour with Ox adventures. This review is for the customer service via email exchange with the company. I had set days I wanted to hike the volcano while in Guatemala. There was some miscommunication on my part for what days I wanted to... More

My sister and I booked a ziplining, kayaking/jungle trek, and the Double Whammy. Ziplining was great. They had booked us with a different company, and our guide Fredy was fantastic. Thrilling, but safe. Our kayaking guide never showed up, but they called us right away and told us that since we were already on the shuttle to Lake Atitlan, they... More

Labeled "easy" I believe it was a good workout wth everyone's Fitbit saying 20,000 steps all uphill. The zip line was everyone's favorite, very thrilling. The eco hotel had a beautiful view, kinda funky. The bike downhill was hectic when we got to the big cobblestones. All in all, fun for athletic types, not for the unfit. Guides were good.

We had a great trip with OX. Fuego was erupting the whole time we were there and we were incredibly lucky with the weather and our group. Everyone had the energy to summit at sunset and it was spectacular. OX offers experienced and knowledgeable guides who are friendly and funny. Their equipment is durable and comfortable enough for one night.... More

I went on an overnight trip to Acatenango hike/ camping. I was in the group with another person reviewing the company and who had somewhat harsh and not totally accurate account of what happened. However I agree that the RESPONSABILITY of canceling the trip lies with the owner of the travel agency/ manager upon verifying the weather forecast. This being... More
