    5.0 - Excellent

    FANTASTIC trip! Plenty of good, fresh food on our trip - share out the rest of your snacks with the porters to enjoy so they don't have to carry it up. I had nasty altitude sickness (grey in face, vomiting, stopping to rest for 3 seconds after every step) and had decided against going the whole way up, despite missing out on the opportunity of a lifetime. The guides (Onex and Mike) had enough experience to say I could make it, and they then proceeded to help me right up to the very top!! (Also helped me very quickly descend afterwards!) Our ENTIRE group made it to the top (one a bit later then the rest) thanks to the brilliant guides/porters. Onex really cares for his team and it showed, so I am 100% sure that this trek was ethically thought-out. If you do this trek, TAKE NEW/OLD JACKETS/SOCKS/GAITERS/CARIBENA CLIPS/ESPECIALLY WARM SLEEPING BAGS/MATS TO DONATE TO THE PORTERS ON THE VERY FIRST DAY (as awkward as it feels) because the average temp in Tanzania is 25*C so those starting out as porters have no reason to have purchased warm clothing prior to their career starting. Also walking poles 100% worth it because I couldn't raise my knees on their own to climb upwards on day 4 and the ability to use my arms to offload burden saved me!

    Great trip! Just prepare yourself with plenty of excercise/hiking/running preferably at altitude. Have the right gear! Guides, organisation was excellent. Can't fault intrepid at all for this. Amazing experience I will never forget.

    I love Tour Radar. They gave me all the support when I needed contacting the agent themselves to solve my problems while I was on the trip. The response was always quick and I also got the best deals, always cheaper than with the operator. Can't fault it really. Just booked my second trip with them this week.
