Aside from a few communication delays (which will hopefully now be resolved as someone has been hired for the office) we had a great experience climbing with Origin Trails.
The trek was organised, safe and professional. Ema is really knowledgeable and fills you with confidence in his abilities as a guide. Unfortunately he was with another group but our guides were also very good. The rest of the crew was also very friendly and the chef prepared tasty meals.
The tents and sleeping bags were excellent (we had asked to see one sleeping bag at the briefing and were initially given a 0 comfort sleeping bag. We didn't feel this would be warm enough and the guides did an excellent job of finding -8 comfort bags, which were warm enough).
The trek was fairly priced, especially in light of the huge park fees and large crew needed to make the trip happen.
We really enjoyed the Machame route and felt that 6 days was a good amount of time for us having done quite a lot of hiking. Days were short (4-5 hours) but we had sufficient time to acclimatise.
Overall, it was an unforgettable few days.
