The BEST company to go with. Extremely experienced, caring, and outstanding. It was easy to book with Angelina's amazing help and throughout the hike we felt confident happy and satisfied. They look after your health needs and give you great encouragement. We became a family in the end. Our guide, Victor, was awesome and we couldn't have done it without him and all the others including so many amazing porters. You won't regret going with Altezza. I got engaged at the summit and it was the most perfect proposal and a dream come true from start to finish!! I absolutely recommend Altezza

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.

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!)

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.

Altezza provided an exceptionally well managed guided climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro, via the Lemosho route. They were very well staffed: My immediate group of 12 was supported by 5 very competent guides who did their best to force participants to go slowly. They and a slew of kitchen staff and porters bent over backwards to assure that everyone had the best possible experience, and in fact, all 12 of us (including myself at age 72) reached the top. For several of us who struggled, they insisted on carrying our backpacks. No detail was too small for their attention. Tea would be waiting for us at various mid-points. The three hot meals each day were excellent. Careful attention was paid to our health along the way, with two health checks each day. At night, they would provide each of us a hot water bottle, encased in a stuffed bunny, to keep our sleeping bags warm. My only suggestion would be for some of the guides to scale back all the chatting (in Swahili) with the porters and with other guides over their walki-talki. I couldn't recommend them more highly.
