I only have good things to say about GodListen, and there are not enough words to describe how amazing he is as a person, friend, and Mt. Kilimanjaro trek leader. My husband and I went on a private hike up Mt. Kilimanjaro for our honeymoon in February 2012 (Machame route). We had never planned such a big trip before and no matter how much we planned ahead of time we expected things to go wrong. We heard so many horror stories from people we talked with who have also attempted to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. However, nothing went wrong! GodListen was waiting at the airport with a sign when we landed, checked us in to our hotel, fit us with the correct size gear that we rented, and talked us through what our safari and hike would be like. We felt secure, confident, and relaxed from the first day to the last day because he always kept us well informed, was always on time, and was extremely nice.
Communication can be a big issue in Africa because not everyone speaks English well. However, GodListen speaks perfect English. We met many other hikers who were having major communication issues with their guides, which I think would have been very stressful. GodListen is also by far the most knowledgeable on the mountain. Wherever we were people were coming to him for advice. In fact, a hiker in another group from a different climbing company needed a medical evacuation and his guide had no idea what to do. Their guide came to GodListen and asked what needed to be done. GodListen went above and beyond and wrapped the sick individual in an emergency blanket, found a stretcher, and hiked 2 hours back down the mountain to the nearest evacuation site and then 2 hours back up the mountain to us. We felt extremely safe with GodListen’s guidance.
We were also very impressed by the past clientele GodListen has brought up the mountain. He led Jessica Biel and Kyle Maynard to name just a few.
GodListen is so strong too! When my husband and I were struggling he would do whatever he could to make things better. He carried our daypacks many times, reminded us to go pole-pole (slow),and took our oxygen level and heart rate every night to make sure we were healthy. My husband and I are not athletes so GodListen worked with our hiking abilities to keep us going!
We made it to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro and it was the most amazing experience of our lives! We could not have done it without the great guidance of GodListen. We are now back home in the USA and still talk with GodListen and continue our relationship. I would strongly recommend you have GodListen as your leader to the top of Africa!
