    The Altezza travel experience was unbelievable. They did a fantastic job of taking us up the mountain, with great food and guides. Their tents could be better, but that`s the only critique. We had our own toilet and shower (which was the real lap of luxury), and the guides and porters were awesome about setting everything up for us. On the safari, they went so far as to put a painted cover on the back wheel that had our names and "Just Married" on it. It was a completely unnecessary, but incredibly special, touch. We now have that hanging in our house. I`m a luxury guy, and Altezza gave it to me at a middle-of-the-road price. It`s an unbelievable value. Read more

    I cannot recommend this company highly enough. There were 6 of us and 27 people between guides, cooks and porters looking after us. Starting with the guides, Joseph, Exaud and Erick made me feel safe and looked after throughout the whole trip. When I fell behind, I was never alone. Unfortunately, I suffered from altitude sickness and had to turn back halfway through the summit on summit night but unlike other companies, I had two people looking after me the whole time, giving me water, food, reassurance and holding me up when I could walk no more. The porters are simply amazing. They went far and beyond their job description to make us feel comfortable, safe, and welcome at any time. The food was definitely a highlight and the bunny-shaped hot-water bottle at night was a very nice touch. I intend to try and summit Kilimanjaro again since I didn`t make it to the top and when I do I will certainly use Altezza Travel. Don`t look elsewhere, choose Altezza! Read more

    I was planning my trip for a long time parsing different reviews and searching for a reliable and professional travel agency. It was the dream of my life to enjoy the whole wildlife variety and spectacular vistas of East Africa’s national parks. And thanks to Altezza team my dreams came true! Professional guide, comfortable safari vehicles and perfect program of Hartebeest tour allowed me to catch such scenic moments as the lion family hunting scene, resting cheetahs, and the Great Migration in Serengeti. My journey was impeccably managed from the first steps at airport Kilimanjaro until my departure. I’ve enjoyed this a great experience with Altezza Travel. Definitely recommended to other travelers.

    I cannot express how grateful I am to Altezza for organising my first solo adventure, and definitely the best trip of my life! It took me a while to choose the right program to join, because I did not know anything about Tanzanian National parks (million thanks to Stasia for answering all my silly questions with enviable patience!). I ended up choosing a 5-day safari, including 3 days in Serengeti. I was so afraid of going to another country on my own, but this fear went away as soon as I saw a smiling guy waving a sing board with my name on it at the airport exit gate. I met other members of my safari group the next morning and they were from all over the world: an old couple in theirs 70s from USA, who just climbed Kilimanjaro few days before (what excuse do you have now?), a beautiful young girl from Russia and a funny guy from Brazil. At 7:30 am our unforgettable adventure started.
    I’ve been always fascinated by wild animals and untouched nature, but spent my whole life living in a buzzing city Berlin where people are always running somewhere. In Tanzania the time stops. I spent the whole hour watching a hyena crawl towards a dead zebra, cautiously looking around for a potential danger of other hungry predators. Mesmerizing! I cannot even name all animals we saw on our trip… lions, buffalos, infinite number of antelopes, elephants, giraffes, wild foxes, ostriches, caracals, leopards, zebras, hyenas, hyraxes and many many more! All lodges and hotels we stayed at were amazing! Tanzanian hospitality was above and beyond my expectations! Everyone was willing to make our stay perfect. And they definitely succeed! Sitting on the terrace and drinking cold Kilimanjaro beer while watching the sun goes down changing the colors of savanna - that is something I will never forget!
    But the highlight of the trip was our guide Omary, who seems to know literally everything about every plant growing on Tanzanian land let alone with all animal breeds we met on our way. Do you know that there are more than 16 different species of antelopes live in Tanzania? Eland, Dik-DIk, Hartebeest, Topi, Tompson, Oribi… And now with a help of Omary, I can even distinguish them!
    So once again, thank you Altezza Travel for the best wildlife experience, new friends from different parts of the world and an excellent customer service. Next time I visit Tanzania, I will definitely contact your amazing team again!

    My wife and I made a climbing with Altezza Travel in October 2015. When choosing the company for climbing Kilimanjaro we were also considering some more budget options, however eventually we were very happy that we were climbing with Altezza Travel. The difference in pricing is visible on the Mount when you see how other climbers struggle compared to you. Starting from the airport Altezza team provided excellent services. My wife and I were taking a private 6 days climb via Umbwe route, our guides were very nice guys Victor and Haji. The trekking was very interesting, at first, we were going through rainforests, starting from the third day we witnessed the picturesque landscapes of the high altitude tundra, which were soon replaced by the unforgettable Lunar-Martian desert landscapes. The team was very professional! We did not expect such a level of service on the Mountain. The meals were really great, rich and varied. The guides were helpful and very caring – they checked our medical condition twice a day using oxymeters and were checking our lungs and overall state of health. The tents and all the equipment was almost brand-new and we were sleeping on 3-inch thick matrasses! The final summiting night was the most memorable and mind-blowing experience. Our guides helped us to conquer the Uhuru peak successfully and escorted us inside the crater to see the Kilimanjaro glaciers. Thank you Victor and Haji! Thank you Altezza Travel for making our Kilimanjaro dream come true! read more

    My son and I have spent a lot of time contacting several companies, and finally have chosen Altezza Travel. They replied fast and provided all details I needed. Their website is clear, nice, informative and have really useful tips for travelers who planning to go to Northern Tanzania. Based on our wishes, Altezza team constructed a 7 days Safari tour to Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti, arranged detailed program, all transfers, cosy accommodations, special brand new equipment, amazing guide and made our trip unforgettable! The tour was well organised, combined several experiences and with a reasonable price. We especially liked Ngorongoro crater, where we saw the most animals and my dream - black rhino! The guide was knowledgeable, inspiring and with a good sense of humor. We fall in love with the nature, locals and the hospitality of the Altezza Travel company. Thank you so much! We will definitely recommend your company to our friends! Our next plan is to do the Kilimanjaro climb with your team! See you next year! read more

    This tip became quite unplanned and spontaneous for us. Suddenly my wife and I got vacation on the work and we started thinking about travelling somewhere. We found Altezza from context advertising half a year ago or something and now, facing the problem of choosing the destination for vacation, we thought: 'Let`s go to Africa, why not?' Obviously we had lack of time for planning the trip and also due to the bank restrictions for international money transfer from Ukraine (you can not transfer through the bank more than $700 abroad), we could not pay a 30% deposit to guarantee our willing to come. After a short dialogue with the manager we bought tickets from Ukraine on the next day. Many thanks to manager Eugene for his responsiveness and understanding of the issue. Telling truth, till the last minute, when we met our safari driver and manager of the company at the airport, I was worry about the trip. Neither me, nor my wife could believe that it is possible to organize 3-days luxury safari in Tanzania within 30 hours only. But now I can confidently say 'YES'! Alttezza Travel managed to organize a dream-trip for me and my wife and we really appreciate them for the work done and can safely recommend this company to all travelers. read more

    You deserve the 5 stars: very good communications and service. The Tanzania safari was well organized and the accommodations (Sopa Lodge, Simba Karatu) were varied and all very nice. Our guide, Abu, was not only a very good driver, a good guide who could tell us many things about the beauty of Tanzania, but also an inspiring man. My visit with my children had a great success partly of good organization and service of Altezza. They even gave us free tips about our stay in Zanzibar. I should say: 'It was really Great!' read more

    I had a brilliant plan to see the Kilimandjaro disappearing glacier, climb it and get down safe. Also I was dreaming for a long time about game drive in Serengetti and Ngorongoro National Parks. I was looking for a local travel agencies which provide a bundle for a suitable price. And I found ONE! Even more I was very surprised how guys were mindful and patient to all of my hundreds of question and remarks!!! First visit to Tanzania with my friends, had a wonderful time thanks to our mountain's team and safari guides. We successfully conquered the Kili summit! As a result, we got two days off. We spent it in a two daily tours in Kilimandjaro National Park. It was very informative! Thanks a lot Altezza Travel for your quickness!!!! We didn't waste our time! Then we went for a safari. It was amazing, I just have no words!!!! Extremely passionate about wild nature and wild life!!! I took an amazing photos!!! We got more than we expected! We will never forget this two weeks!

    Altezza was exceptionally professional and customer focused from start to finish.
    Our guide and driver Vincent was taking very good care of us, showing us the best spots, communicating with rangers and other guides to make every safari in Tanzania successful. We had a lot to see and do in our 8 days tour and now in retrospect we are glad for every minute.
    I can certainly recommend Altezza as safari tour operator. I would definitely book with them again if I get the opportunity to go back to Tanzania. read more

    We conquered Kilimanjaro in February 2016. Excellent service from Altezza Travel - would definitely recommend the company to everyone embracing on the adventrure. We ended up going as a couple instead of a group due to change of circumstances. But we had 12 people going with us!! 2 guides and 10 porters. Everything was taken care of: accommodation, plenty of food and water including fruits, regular health checks twice a day. Separate appreciation to the guides - excellent support and fun - wouldn't make it to the top without them. We reached the summit and managed to get safe back. So, would review Altezza Travel as a totally trustable company with excellent service. read more
