    My experience with Altezza was great. From the start communication was so easy and lightning fast. Anna answered all my questions about the climb and gear very quickly. The hotel base was very nice. My driver was waiting to pick me up from airport. The eqipment I rented was top notch. The guides were experts and very friendly. Same for porters. Food and water was plentiful . Medical checks twice a day. Transport to and from the mountain was good.Price was nice. Would highly recommend this company Read more

    Just completed a successful summit of Kilimanjaro with Altezza and the experience was excellent. We had 11 in the group with various levels of experience and Joseph and his team did a fantastic job of keeping everyone on track to summit. Guides and porters were excellent, food was outstanding and health checks were comforting. You will not go wrong booking with Altezza, most of us actually booked through the Clymb, who do all the hard work of vetting the tour companies..,great combination! Thank you to Anna, Joseph, Philemon, Tuma, Julius and Bariki. Read more

    Altezza could not have been more organized, helpful, accommodating and professional. Albert was our lead guide (Top Notch!) with our greatest cheerleader JoJo and Philomen to make sure we kept the right pace. I have to echo what 847rachaelc says! Especially about the toilet tent! (otherside known as the green machine!) We had the privilege of a birthday celebration, huge cake shared by all, song, dance and celebration! The best was the hot water bunny bottles, for which we gratefully thank Anna for finding new ones for us to take home. An experience of a lifetime! 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!

    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 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.
    Thank you so much, Altezza.

    We were delighted to work with Altezza. Our guide was very well educated, civil, cordial and passionate about wildlife! He immediately conquered us with charm and we hope to meet him again. Our little son was crying to leave him, though our baby does not understand English. He has really done everything beyond our expectations. The guides of Altezza are very skilled – he easily outmaneuvered other cars, when a rhino or a lion come close. He was also very much attentive in handling complex parts of the road – we were safe all the time. I have a small recommendation for the other travelers: electricity is often switched off in lodges in the National Parks at night. Thus, taking power banks for charging your gadgets will be very much useful. Seldom do I see good professionals in travel. The guys from Altezza travel is a good exception. Read more

    When you’ve traveled the world, you don’t expect much from a new country, you believe you’ve seen it all. That’s what I thought when I was planning my trip to Tanzania. Fortunately, this country proved me wrong and showed me wonders - let’s be honest, I had expected to see, - but I had no idea how deep and bright and unforgettable this experience would appear. I don’t know how to put it into words, but what you see and feel there is so raw and unique and fresh, you have nothing left but admire and soak it up the way it is. And I believe it’d be wrong to forget Altezza Travel when it comes to my vacation in Tanzania. I’m sure without the guys who managed to polish all the rough spots which might appear during my trip, it wouldn’t have been that awesome! Read more

    Thank you very much for the organization of the <a href="https://en.altezza.travel/trekking-kilimanjaro">trek Kilimanjaro</a> in February 2016. Everything was prepared at the highest level. The high-altitude acclimatization was a success, due to your recommendations, my physical training was in conformity with the requirements. Drivers, guides and porters worked perfectly. Employees and administration of Altezza company took swift action in response to our demands including individual requirements and wishes. They have always been in touch. I was pleasantly surprised by European style of doing business and customer focus of company in such country as Tanzania with an absolutely different mentality and a local color. Thank you very much for your great work. See you again! Read more

    My two-weeks adventure in Africa is over! All stuff are unpacked, and all the impressions, more or less , arranged on the shelves. The trip was more than spontaneous, I was traveling alone, and my knowledge of the language was so poor and little, however with Altezza Travel I did not even think about difficulties and organizational matters, only admired the local scenery and enjoyed the adventure! :-) Usually, I’m planning the journey by myself, during the process you often realize that something is missing. But when I have returned from this trip, I understand that more intensely and perfectly I would not travel! I joined the group of wonderful people, terribly miss them now, and the service was so great that I would not change a thing! Despite the fact that the ascent itself was challenging, the whole group summited, and we would not do it without help of our professional guides, who followed our needs, speed, health, supported and helped, and even forced, for example, to eat or to sleep when it is needed, and during the summit never left us alone. <a href="https://en.altezza.travel/tanzania-safari">Tanzania safari</a>, I have to say, is not only exotic animals in their natural environment and African landscapes, but also fine hotels and beer in the evening  Thank you so much for such a fabulous trip! ^^ Read more

    Ребята, большое вам спасибо за професионализм,за возможность побывать на крыше Африки. Восхождение нам организовывал наш гид Женя. Наша группа знать не знала с какой фирмой будем подниматься. Об этом мы узнали только в трансфере с аэропорта, когда нам предложили бутылки с водой на которой было написано название фирмы. Я до этого про altezza читала на форуме и в нескольких отчетах, включая популярного блоггера Сергея Долю. Мы старались держаться подальше от русских фирм за границей. Ребятам надо отдать должное, они сломали этот стереотип. Команда портеров удивляла. Они запомнили где чей баул, кто с какой стороны спит. Они старались приходить пораньше, чтоб максимально все приготовить к нашему приезду, все вовремя. Гиды внимательны. Грелки в горах, что просто уму не постижимо было. Очень вкусные и разнообразные ужины. Все снаряжение в прокат новое, качественное. Более того, у главного гида был gps. Всем нашим друзьям и родственникам была отправлена ссылка, по которой они могли следить за нашим передвижением, где, когда, во сколько. Первый раз, когда я смело могу сказать, и наша группа полностью с этим согласна, что не к чему придраться. Очень много внимания к мелочам, к комфорту. И для меня еще большим показателем было то, что гиды сами довольны работой в компании и дорожат своим местом. Altezza огромное спасибо. И пожелания, чтоб также качественно продолжали работать.

    Without help of the locals in countries such as Tanzania, it would be very difficult to make a high-quality preparation for the filming the TV program. Everything is quite expensive, the local people are not always honest and responsible. Without local guides, believe me, you won’t get neither proper holidays or any quality of good work. I was fortunate to work with Altezza Travel. Thanks guys, because of you we filmed a great program about Tanzania: experienced real hunting with local aborigine, got into the mine and discover the process of mining tanzanites, went on <a href="https://en.altezza.travel/tanzania-safari">African safari in Tanzania</a>. Altezza team fully took over the organization of our shooting in Arusha (or what to call this region ???). We only had to film our adventures and enjoy life! Thank you, Altezza Travel! Because of you I had terrific memories of Tanzania! I want to get back on safari, but for a long time, a couple of weeks :) Marina Grankina, executive producer of "Heads and Tails.

    Очень рады, что выбрали Альтеззу для восхождения и сафари. Все организовано превосходно: отличное оборудование, персонал, все хорошо продумано и прошло без заминок (что по нашему опыту, не так часто бывает в таких сложных поездках). Мы восходили в январе, по маршруту Лемошо с chief-гидом Рашидом. Маршрут хороший - позволяет аклиматизироваться и, хоть и не без трудностей, удачно штурмовать пик Ухуру, время тоже удобное - в это время в Танзании лето и на высоких точках не так морозно. Альтезза по максимуму делает поход приятным: повара готовят отлично и много (несколько блюд за раз - суп, второе, десерт!), палатки просторные и очень комфортные, все нужные лекарства у гидов есть. Нам очень повезло с нашими гидами - Рашид, Чарльз, Агри, Тума, Эксод, Роберт - крайне внимательные и профессиональные ребята, всегда были рядом в нужный момент, а при спуске (который мне давался трудно, так как у меня ещё до поездки болела нога) чуть ли не под руки несли в сложных местах и брали мой личный рюкзак. Отдельно большое спасибо Рашиду, Чарльзу, Агри за интересные беседы - эти гиды сделали наше восхождение особенно запоминающимся: у ребят отличный английский, благодаря чему мы много узнали о Танзании, и они хорошо знают местную флору и фауну - так что при спуске через лес у нас получилось целое сафари) Сафари также прошло удачно, нам попался классный гид Бонифаций: хорошо знает парки, разглядел нам всех полагающихся животных, очень юморной:) Итого, всем рекомендуем!

    Dear friends, let me express my deepest gratitude and respect to all the personnel&management involved in organization of our tour dtd 01-09/10/2018 to Kilimanjaro/Tarangire. Please pass our personal appreciation to Anna - the most effective and dear organizer and tour-adviser, to most esteemed guides Albert, Othman, Philemon, Tuna and AbdulRahim for their cooperation, care, courtesy and patience. They've done everything to make memories and love to Tanzania most long lasting. Anatoly Prokopenko, while getting ready his backpack for the trek said, that he had foreseen all the necessary occasions. But he couldn't foresee, that all the necessary occasions will be provided for by the esteemed operator Altezza Travel. With best regards, Tikhontsev, Prokopenko. if interested, a longread about thr trek https://jalynski.livejournal.com/2539426.html Read more
