Excellent

Excellent 5 star tour and organisation. I can't recommend this tour enough to those wanting to visit Mt Pinatubo.
Because of recent updates by the Office of Tourism for the Municipality of Capas, foreign visitors are now required to obtain military clearance to gain entry. The tour operators made this a total breeze. All I had to do was send them some photo ID and they handled the rest. When it's all approved you'll get a visitor clearance letter from the Office of Tourism.
The tour began with an early morning pickup, and drive to the military check point to provide ID and obtain a pass. Further on we changed over to a 4x4 vehicle. From that point on i knew we were going over some rough terrain, open dirt tracks, small rivelets. Heaps of fun.
Eventually we arrived at a point where the 4 wheel drive could not go any further and we then began the long but inspiring walk to Mt Pinatubo. Along the way we met several small villages with straw huts which offered a cooling relief and rest stops. Talking to the locals was such an insight. As the trek continued the rocky tors gave way to lush tropical rainforest. Truly amazing.
Eventually after a long but not overly difficult uphill trek, we arrived at our destination. The view from the top of the crater was spectacular and absolutely breathtaking. The trek was well worth the effort.
And if that wasn't enough we then had the opportunity to descend into the crater! The place is truly serene, a far cry from the massive eruption that occurred in 1991 which destroyed many villages.
And that was not the end of my surprises. On our journey back I spent time with the chief of an indigeneous community that live in the vicinity of the volcano. He was an inspiring man to speak to. Sponsored by his local church he was able to travel the world, to places such as Sweden, France, Portugal, Australia and showed me his many photos. And yet despite all this, he still preferred to live in his humble abode, a simple straw hut, unprotected by the 4 elements of the earth, hunting wild boar, farming, gathering and being a true leader for his people. He even taught me to shoot a bow and arrow.
My gratitudes to my wonderful guide, Roberto. He was caring, patient, and helped me to navigate the slippery rocks strewn in the flowing rivelets on our hike to the top. There were several times I could have tripped over but he supported me each time. It was his birthday so I made sure to treat him. It was like having a brother, a kind and caring person.
And a big shout out to Pinatubo Mountainero, for doing all the leg work to make this a truly not-to-be-missed, once in a lifetime, memorable experience.
I had hoped to upload some photos and videos of the tour, but that would take too long and I will endeavour to do so later, when they have been properly edited.
Thank you again Pinatubo Mountainero!

Nothing short of awesome!

From booking to the actual day tour and all the in-betweens, Pinatubo Mountainero has been very efficient! All the helpful information for the tour is on the booking page. It was a smooth booking process too! I didn’t encounter any problem checking out the package. The communications from them post-booking were also commendable! They reply fast and give ample amount of insights for our inquiries. Finally, the day tour itself was impeccable! When we arrived from Manila, all we had to do was write and sign on the waiver form and we were good to go. Talk about convenience! The trek was enjoyable as well. There were three tour guides assigned for our group of 12 pax. They were very assistive all throughout the trail. It’s also guaranteed that you’re the first trip if you book from them and it’s true. It’s 5 stars for me and I recommend it to anyone who hasn’t been to Mount Pinatubo yet. You won’t regret it!

Great fun!

Rainier, our guide, was helpful. We were able to keep up with his fast pace, but wonder if he adjust to slower hikers. Really appreciated that he made efforts to ensure we were ahead of the crowds. The driver of the 4x4 gave passed along a lot of information about the area.

This is not a strenuous hike, but ithere are several water crossings, rocks, and sand storms which future trekkers should be prepared for.

It's disappointing that there's litter along the trail. Could there be an effort to clean it up and encourage hikers to leave no trace.
