The best company for Kilimanjaro treks!
Oct. 2021
I made the best decision when I chose to plan my Kilimanjaro trip with Altezza Travel!

Before the trek:
While planning, I must have exchanged more than 50 emails with Julia. She was super-friendly and very prompt in addressing each and every query in detail. As I was traveling from India, there were added uncertainties regarding Covid restrictions and quarantine rules in Tanzania. Altezza Travel found out the latest information from JRO airport and shared with me (long before it became available as part of official advisory) which helped me proceed with my flight bookings in time. Airport transfers and hotel stay were timely and as promised. Julia, Sofia and team also conducted thorough equipment checks and provided the right advice and equipment.

During the trek:
Needless to say that we all owe our summit success to the wonderful guides and porters of Altezza. Victor, Agrey, Authman, Wisen - and all the other guides - were super helpful and took care of our every need. The medical checks were conducted rigourously every morning and evening during the trek. And it was not done as a mere formality, the guides also took proactive action (like supplying medicines or oxygen) for people who showed symptoms of AMS. The food was excellent too - I am a vegetarian and the chef made sure to prepare additional dishes for me during every meal! We had a briefing session every evening about what to expect the next day, how to dress up and all other details. Even though the summit night / day was difficult, the guides kept motivating us and ensured that every person in our group of 13 could reach Uhuru Peak successfully. Our group consisted of participants from all over the world and the guides treated us like a family.

After the trek:
We received a grand welcome and the celebrations carried on until late in the evening. Afterwards, I had a bit of a hiccup as I could not board my scheduled return flight due to a problem with my RT-PCR test. It was midnight and I was in a state of complete panic but again Julia stepped in and made sure that I was picked up from the airport. She herself was present at the hotel even though it was past midnight when I reached there. She provided the right guidance regarding RT-PCR and flight rescheduling and also arranged an RT-PCR test for me. What's more, she even provided me 3 nights of complimentary accommodation at Aishi Machame and airport transfers completely free of charge! It was completely unexpected and came as a pleasant surprise to me to be honest! That generosity and kindness ensured that my great trip did not end with a sour experience but ended greatly too!

If I were to go again to Tanzania, I would not think twice before entrusting Altezza Travel with my trip! I would strongly recommend it to others too! They were extremely friendly, very helpful and completely transparent in their dealings. Most importantly, they were there and stood by me when I needed them the most!

One of the most friendly staff and companies!
Oct. 2021
One of the main reasons I booked with Altezza was the ability to join a group on different dates for the different routes on Kilimanjaro. This helped keep the costs down and made everything easier on my end. In joining a group, I've met some of the most like-minded individuals in my group and have formed a special bond with them. Booking a Kilimanjaro trek and a safari with Altezza was one of the easiest experiences I have encountered. The friendly staff replied promptly to my emails and were patient with all my questions. When meeting the sales managers and planners at the Altezza owned hotel, they were very helpful with gear rentals, recommendations, and provided details about the upcoming trekking plans. The mountain guides, cooks and porters on Kilimanjaro are the real heroes as they ensured everyone was safe, comfortable, and reached the summit. Our safari driver (Tom) is a very friendly, caring and knowledgeable person. He kept us entertained with information and stories during our long drives. We had an unforgettable vacation in Tanzania and Altezza was key in making this happen. I plan to return to Tanzania and will have Altezza in mind.

unforgetable
Oct. 2021
I booked with Altezza based on their positive reviews and they did NOT disappoint. In fact, I could think of a single way this experience could have been better or any way they could have been more organized or professional. From the timely airport pick up, to the attention to every detail every single day, the company was incredible. I traveled solo and was placed into a group of 12 others, all such like-minded travelers it was almost as though we'd been deliberately selected. The Guides were ABOVE and BEYOND- our head guide, Barraca, was so professional: consistently and thoroughly checking our health, ensuring any symptoms of altitude sickness were immediately addressed, and always providing accurate up to date briefings on our journey. Urio kept us moving and made sure we had everything we needed on summit day and every other day, even down to helping us get clothes and gear back on when we were too cold or tired to do it ourselves. Justine always wore a smile and provided CONSTANT encouragement; he even sang to us as we struggled up the cold hill on the day of our summit. The porters were always there to help in any possible way- bringing coffee to our tents first thing on the cold mornings, dusting off our clothes at the end of long trekking days, carrying hot ginger tea up the mountain for us as we approached the summit.

The extent to which these guides and porters supported us, helped us, encouraged us, cannot be over-stated. It was obvious this was not just a job to them, they WANTED us to be successful.

Altezza did an outstanding job taking care of our every need and providing us with the best support staff in regard to guides, porters, and drivers I could possibly imagine.

This was easily the most incredible adventure of my life. I made life long friends and would not consider any similar journey with any other company. USE ALTEZZA! (and if you can request Justine, Barraca or Urio, do yourself a favor and do it! They WILL get you to the SUMMIT!)

One of our best vacation experiences!
Oct. 2021
Altezza exceeded our expectations in every way! If you are wanting to climb Kilimanjaro, look no further.

From beginning to end, the attention to detail and the quality of the experience was remarkable. The guides were not only extremely knowledgable and prepared for any situation, they were kind and funny and made what at times can be a challenging hike for some, easier through their encouragement and assurance that all will be okay. They take safety very seriously and health checks were done twice daily.

The porter staff was wonderful. Our meals were delicious, the camps were always set up very comfortably, and they went above and beyond to make it a special experience. One person in our group had a birthday and also happens to have a gluten allergy. Imagine our surprise when after dinner the cook brought in an absolutely beautiful (and tasty) gluten-free cake with candles along with the guides and some of the senior porters singing Happy Birthday in Swahili! I'll never forget it and it wasn't even my birthday!

Another fun touch was every night before bed we were given stuffed bunnies with hot water bottles for the ends of our sleeping bags. :)

We have done a few trekking vacations and I can say that Altezza is absolutely top notch and you will not regret booking with them.

Fantastic Experience with a Top Notch Operator
I was recommended Altezza by a friend and couldn’t have been more satisfied.

From the initial logistics of the trip all the way to the finish, the attention to detail and the service was excellent.

The guides, cooks & porters we’re all professional and courteous - always thinking one step ahead of us in how they can serve us. Frankly without the guides positive attitude and encouragement, I’m not sure I would have made the summit!

I’d highly recommend Altezza to anyone deciding to climb Kili.

Trip of a lifetime!
Sep. 2021
Wow! This was a trip of a lifetime and one that I will never forget. From the beginning of the hike with the song and dance to send us off, to the one to one attention provided to ensure that each participant was successful in their hike - I could not have asked for anything more. Personally, I struggled with the altitude and needed to take my time. My guide Elly, carried my backpack from day three on and he was there every step of the way with words of encouragement, information about the environment we were hiking in and checking on me for safety purposes. I am happy to say I made it to the summit! I was blown away by how quickly the staff worked. We would leave our tents to begin our hike and by the time we got to our new camp site everything was ready for us - tents, food, etc. We had tea everyday halfway through our hike! Simply amazing!

Great 7-days Kilimanjaro Hiking with Altezza
Sep. 2021
I made my climb first week of September via 7-days Lemosho route, one of the longest and perhaps the most picturesque and interesting route of climbing Kilimanjaro.
This time is a peak season, but because of COVID probably it was not so crowded at the therefore we like it very much.
We were 22 persons divided in two groups.
And I was very impressed from Altezza Travel work for us to reach the summit and our goals and dreams!
Route, logistic, everyday routine processes were organised very well.
Service is great, especially the food - which was healthy and delicious.
The Team (guides, cool, porters..) was fantastic - so kind, friendly and professional - do all the best for our comfort and safety.
And we were lucky with the weather - it was great, even on summit night weather was fantastic!
I would like to say - Thank you very very much Altezza for organising this great Trip which we will never forget!

An experience of a lifetime
Sep. 2021 • Friends
There are no words to properly express this trip. The guides and porters were beyond incredible. They made myself and my group of 5 others feel safe and confident during the climb. They also ensured we were having fun. The food was excellent! The gear rentals provided were top notch gear. The extra touches and care provided meant so much to us. This was an experience of a lifetime and I am forever grateful to the staff, guides, and porters at Altezza. Stanford, Urio and Peter along with all of the porters made the trip possible and enjoyable!

Perfect 7 day hike with Altezza - Lomosho Route
Sep. 2021
Altezza really stands out by being a very responsible and professional agency. The crew was amazing. Definitely could not have chosen a better company for my Kilimanjaro hike. Thanks a lot to the team!

Lomosho is definitely a well-planned and thoughtful hike in all manners. If you want to give your body more time to acclimatize, choose the tour for at least 9 days (7 hike + 2 hotel). (our success rate was at 100%)

It was a great pleasure hiking with such an amazing team. Our Tour Guides took very well care of us and were always very thoughtful. Even in challenging situations they kept us motivated. They also took good care of our mental health with health check-ins twice a day. Also our physical health was taken care of with delicious food (hot and cold) 3 times a day. Moreover, I am also impressed by the hard work of the porters, who carried our stuff all the way up and down. We had fun, smiled and laughed a lot.

Tipps:
In case you want to have a clean and comfortable toilet, rent one.
Don’t get overconfident. You need warm clothes especially for the summit night.
Trust the team and listen.
Enjoy the beautiful landscape and don´t rush!
