The guides were great and so much fun!! This hike is definitely not for everyone. We had 4 people drop out in the first 30 min. But the view from the top is totally worth it!! Loved every minute!!
The hike is challenging, but definitely worth it! We ended up with a private tour for just the 2 of us, and our guide Hilton was great. We made it up and back down in 3.5 hours [1hr45min climb, 15min break at the top and 1hr30min to get back down]. There are some narrow areas, and several more difficult sections, but all very doable. We are mid-30s and only hike on vacation. Hilton said he has taken kids as young as 4, and they have hiked it without issue. We met our guide just past the security gates at the port and drove ~45 min in an open air tour bus to the parking area. The last 5 minutes of the ride is a crazy trip over VERY bumpy terrain with tall brush on either side. The hike starts with a ~20 minute walk through the rain forest before the real climbing begins. Hilton stopped for rests frequently on the way up, but kept a very quick pace. Definitely recommend this excursion for anyone considering this hike

So let me start off by saying my wife and I are in our 50s. We've hiked Zion, Acadia, Escalante, Bryce, Sedona and the grand canyon. This hike was as tough if not tougher than those. We read the reviews and concluded they were primarily cruisers who wouldn't know a tough excursion or hike. BUT, I was wrong... Its hot, wet, full of fruit flies hovering around downed mangoes, up hill, on all fours at times. We traversed boulders, grabbed roots to get up. I wouldn't say it was dangerous, but you will appreciate the workout. The reward?... Great views at the top. Do it, you won't regret it. Hilton was a great guide and kept you moving. He won't baby you on the trip but he will get you there and back safely. Do it for the experience, do it for the adventure... if you like a good hike... just do it!

Took this hiking excursion separate from the cruise ship and made it back with enough time to shop, get hair braided and sit and have a couple of beers in port. Took about 2 hours up and 1 hour and 30 minutes back down with about 20 minutes to spend up top eating the best raisin bread And fresh juice. We had 5 people in our group. And even with it being challenging, we passed a group that had 30 minutes on us.
Once we got to the top the view was great. But getting there was harder than I thought it would be. We had an owner of gym and even he said it was a lot harder than he thought it would be. And he and his wife climbed Everest. I wish we had more time to stop and take pictures didn't get to enjoy the jungle. The group got separated on the way back and my daughter and I were on our own for half the trip back.
