I just finished a trek of Kilimanjaro with Peter Tours and Mountaineering and wanted to post a positive review of the company. I was a little nervous signing up with Peter as it seemed to be one of the more budget oriented tour operators for Kilimanjaro, but wanting to trek with a local company (located in Moshi) and with being on a tight budget of a year long world tour I decided to take the plunge and sign up with Peter. I couldn't find much in the way of reviews of his company, so decided I would write this for others considering his company, or searching for a Kilimanjaro trekking agency.
I joined on as a single for the 6-day Umbwe Route, and ended up being in a group of 2, with a guide, and assistant guide, a cook and seven porters to take care of us. The other trekker being a woman, we each were given our own tent, as well as having a dinning tent complete with table and chairs. A friend of mine started a few days later and ended up being on his own as a solo trekker with a crew of 5 on the 7-day Lachame Route, with only a couple of days notice to Peter.
I was quite impressed with the helpfullness of both Peter and his employees (guides, porters, cooks, etc.). The food on the trek was quite good quality, and we were served more than enough. The tents were fine, although the rental gear was adequate but did leave something to be desired. I hadn't decided to climb Kili before I had headed to Africa, so had to rent a warm sleeping bag, which was only OK, and some warm clothing, which was adequate but dated. I would recommend bringing along your own gear if you have it.
