    I cooperate with Altezza and can strongly recommend them as a professional company, which will organize your trip five plus. When planning your journey to Africa by yourself you have to search for the cheapest options of safari and climbing Kilimanjaro. I can say from my own experience that the local companies by reducing the price of travel often may trick you: give you cheap dirty hotels (though you paid for good quality), the meager food and cheat on different services. After this negative experience you have to specify every detail. With Altezza planning turns into pleasure, I like that they include all spendings in the price, it is always comfortable and even cheaper than the other local companies offer. Altezza offers only comfortable hotels, brand new safe safari jeeps, professional equipment for the climbing on mountains. In addition, they think through every step of the ascent on Kilimanjaro, guides provide you great food and hot tea, support and help at the right time. So I appreciate the organization of the first Russian companies in Tanzania Altezza and recommend them as a responsible company.

    I was making a joined climb with Altezza Travel in July 2016 via Machame 7 days route. Overall organization process was very smooth. The guys from Altezza were always online and all my mails were answered within two hours max. On the arrival, I met the manager Valeria who made very detailed briefing on the climb and answered all my questions. The hotel which we were staying at was very nice, nothing special, just friendly staff and cozy rooms. The climbing experience was beyond my expectations: we went with Samwel the chief guide – he and his team were just perfect and much fun!! Of all the groups I have seen on the Mount Kilimanjaro - we were having the best food and the best service through the whole climb. All the medicine was on the high level though none of us was really having any problems with altitude sickness. All the 4 climbers reached the Uhuru peak and our guides were supporting us to the Peak with thermoses of hot tea, which really helped a lot. My thanks to Samwel and all the Altezza team for the greatest African experience!
