    5.0 - Excellent

    I'd definitely recommend Altezza and the Umbwe tour I did. Where do I begin...the team was always super responsive and helpful with all of the silly questions I had prior to my trip. Pick up from the airport was provided - if you can, get your visa before you arrive. You can get it at the airport, however you'll wait for quite a while. I think it took me approx. 1-1.5 hours. The hotel, the staff and the food we stayed at for the first and last night was good. Breakfast and 2 bottles of water per room is included and our hotel also had a pool where you could watch monkey jumping from tree to tree :-) If you're planning to go somewhere after your hike, don't worry, you can leave extra luggage at the Altezza office. I felt very safe and welcome all trip long. My group consisted of 9 Russians and myself and we had a really great time. Our guide Victor and his team took very good care of us. We had medical checks twice a day to ensure the altitude wasn't getting at us. Everyone of us took Diamox for altitude sickness, which we got from our guide and I can highly recommend it. Just be aware that if you do, your feet, face and fingers might have a tickling sensation occasionally. The Umbwe route is considered the most difficult. Our group was aged 30-approx. 60 and we all prepared by going to the gym and doing some endurance training. Every one of us made it to the top! :-D Summit day/night is quite exhausting, since you'll be on your feet a lot. The team feeds you really well with breakfast, lunch and dinner and lots of tea and water. We all brought some nuts, protein bars, chocolates, etc. from home as snacks. At the end of our trip we tipped our guide (who then split it with all porters and the other guides). Everyone of us tipped USD 200 or more. I had the experience of a lifetime and can only recommend Altezza and the Umbwe tour to anyone!
