    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!

    We visited in February 2016. Excellent service from Altezza Travel - would definitely recommend the company to everyone embracing on the adventrure. We ended up going as a couple instead of a group due to change of circumstances. But we had 12 people going with us!! 2 guides and 10 porters. Everything was taken care of: accommodation, plenty of food and water including fruits, regular health checks twice a day. Separate appreciation to the guides - excellent support and fun - wouldn't make it to the top without them. We reached the summit and managed to get safe back. So, would review Altezza Travel as a totally trustable company with excellent service.

    My wife and I made a climbing with Altezza Travel in October 2015. When choosing a company for climbing Kilimanjaro we were also considering some more budget options, however, eventually we were very happy that we were climbing with Altezza Travel. The difference in pricing is visible on the Mount when you see how other climbers struggle compared to you. Starting from the airport Altezza team provided excellent services. My wife and I were taking a private 6 days climb via Umbwe route, our guides were very nice guys Victor and Haji. The trekking was very interesting, at first, we were going through rainforests, starting from the third day we witnessed the picturesque landscapes of the high altitude tundra, which were soon replaced by the unforgettable Lunar-Martian desert landscapes. The team was very professional! We did not expect such a level of service on the Mountain. The meals were really great, rich and varied. The guides were helpful and very caring – they checked our medical condition twice a day using oxymeters and were checking our lungs and overall state of health. The tents and all the equipment was almost brand-new and we were sleeping on 3-inch thick matrasses, which was quite comfortable for us. The final summiting night was the most memorable and mind-blowing experience. Our guides helped us to make it to the top and escorted us inside the crater to see the Kilimanjaro glaciers. Thank you Victor and Haji! Thank you Altezza Travel for making our Kilimanjaro dream come true!
