Thank you Altezza
Altezza earns all the 5 star reviews. Amazing from start to finish. The booking staff was extremely helpful and responsive. Thank you Mila and Anna! The mountain crew went above and beyond to ensure your safety and your success. Thank you Victor, Gerard, and all the porters! Rongai route is often called “less” scenic. This couldn’t be more wrong. You see both sides of the mountain on this trip, so it feels like you get more scenery. Also, camp at Mawenzi was an added bonus of beauty. This was a life changing experience! Thank you Altezza!
Altezza for the win!
I give my highest possible recommendation for Altezza, which has proven to be a truly top-notch company in every respect. Nearly a year ago I first reached out online. I was immediately impressed by Mila, who quickly, patiently and comprehensively addressed every one of my questions and concerns. Over the following several months I was provided with an equipment check list, and all of the information I could possibly have hoped for regarding travel to and from Tanzania, the local city of Moshi and Kilimanjaro. When I arrived at Kilimanjaro airport I was met promptly by a professional and courteous driver who whisked me away to the Aishi Machame hotel. The hotel is outside of Moshi in the jungle and is a wonderful site to stay before and after an adventure. The food is very good and lounging by the pool watching monkeys has proven to be loads of fun. As for the actual hike, Joshua was my guide and he was absolutely fantastic. The same can be said for his entire team (porters, chef, etc.). Joshua did a great job setting an appropriate pace and generally making me feel comfortable. He was careful to make sure I knew what to expect the following day and was diligent about performing medical checks twice a day. He was also a great conversationalist who was happy to chat for hours about all aspects of Tanzania and Kilimanjaro. Everyone seemed genuinely happy for me when I made it to the summit. I should also mention that the food provided on the mountain was incredible - fresh mango, melon, pineapple, chicken, beef, the list goes on and on. In short, I cannot possibly imagine a better experience than what was provided by Altezza. I spoke with other hikers on the mountain who were traveling with other companies and it was very clear that their experience was far less satisfactory than mine.
Not enough stars to rate this experience! So far the best company for Kilimanjaro tours in Tanzania .
We had an amazing experience with Altezza group climbing Kilimanjaro ( lemosho route). First of all we have done two days of safari and it’s was top! I live in Africa and I thought I won’t be much impressed. But Ngorongoro made me fall in love with Tanzanian nature! Then we had 7 days lemosho clim, and here I am simply speechless how well they organized everything. Each little detail is taken into consideration. Each day is full of only positive emotions. They took care of our group as caregiver takes care of kids in the nursery. We were spoiled by most delicious food. Absolutely perfect tents and equipments. Rented boots and clothing were top shape and quality. Guides are very professional and truly helpful. Team spirit, songs laughs each days was a new adventure. Can’t wait to go back ans do new climbing with Altezza for another Routing. 10 stars guys. Bravo!

Professional and Qualified
The guides and porters were supermen. Professional and highly qualified. They looked after us like family.
Lemosho - 7 Days
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!
Amazing experience with Altezza team
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.

Climb Kilimanjaro: 8 Days Lemosho Route
Altezza is a great company! They were very well prepared and had an excellent logistics and climb team! I would highly recommend them for Kilimanjaro. I will probably use them for future tours as well.
Climb Kilimanjaro: 8 Days Machame Route
This experience was out of this world! The company, the guides, and everyone else involved exceeded all of my expectations! Rashid was our main guide and Tumaini was our secondary guide. They were both exceptional! Their main goal was to make sure we make it to the top and they did everything possible to make it happen. We all sumitted without any issues and I will most definitely never forget this experience! Highly recommend Altezza. Very professional company and known by everyone in the area. I heard a lot of positive feedback about them after the fact and I can definitely see why. Highly recommend Rashid and Tumaini as well. They were my faborite part of the experience. And of course, the entire crew of porters, cooks, servers, everyone and everything was outstanding! No need to think twice on this one, book your climb through Altezza if you want to have the most memorable climb in your life! P.s. we did the 6 day Machame road and it was plenty of time to acclimate and successfully make it to the top. Anything more than that is not really necessary unless you are into freezing camp nights and want to spend extra time in a tent. But as long as you are physically active in your everyday life, you will be absolutely fine with 6 days!
Climb Kilimanjaro: 8 Days Umbwe Route
Josh was fantastic guide! He and Exaud really made our experience memorable. We felt we were in safe and competent hands. The food was good and plentiful, and the whole experience was amazing. Altezza was very responsive, and I would reccomend it for anyone in the future.

In this letter, I express my deep gratitude to ALTEZZA.TRAVEL for organizing and supporting my climbing on August 2, 2019 to Ukhuru peak (tour from July 28, 2019 to August 04, 2019, along the Marangu route). It was an amazing tour to Mount Kilimanjaro with the ALTEZZA.TRAVEL team. I note the highest level of tour organization - from the meeting at the airport to the moment you return to the hotel and receive certificates! Special thanks: - to the Chief guide Victor Mahonge. His organizing skills, the ability to manage and control the whole group, experience, knowledge, medical preparation, hardness and mountain endurance energized us and gave us the feeling of complete security and constant support. I am sure that without Victor Mahonge our tour would not have taken place, or the sensations would not have been so vivid; -to the guides Wisen Ronald and Elipokea E Urio. Their background, guardianship, care and attention, the ability to captivate with stories about Tanzania, history, nature, and mountain of Kilimanjaro, a high level of English knowledge, quick learning of the Russian language helped us to feel comfortable, confident and easy; - to Anna, customer relations manager. Her detailed information, elaboration of documents, solving current issues around the tour and the hotel, intelligence, punctuality, and attention to us - everything at the highest level! Thank you all for the received emotions! This is of great value to me! Of course, I will recommend ALTEZZA.TRAVEL and the team of guides of our group to all my friends and acquaintances!

Big thank you to all the crew without any exception. It was a lifetime experience... and without them it wouldn't be possible. A special thank you to Victor and Selemon... our guides that made it possible... also to Joseph that helped me so much together with Victor during the summit stage. All the crew was 100% involved and I highly recommend them to climb Kilimanjaro. Food was good, security and safety was from the beginning the bigger worry, we had medical check ups twice a day and everything was really well organised. I absolutely recommend Altezza, my guides - Victor and Selemon together with all the crew to climd Kilimanjaro. It was a Wonderfull experience. THANK YOU SO MUCH for everything. Ana Oliveira
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

My father and I have just climbed Kilimanjaro Mount with Altezza and everything was better than I’d imaniginated! The organization, instalations of the camping tent and, mainly, the professionalism of the team that helped us from the beggining of the route Rongai up to reach the summit! Especially the guides Elipokei and Erick! Byond the knowledgement of the route, me, as a doctor, could noted that they really knew what they were doing about our health control especially even because my father is 67 years old and reacheted the Gilmann’s point with their help. I deeply recommend Altezza!

Altezza facilitated a fantastic climb Mount Kilimanjaro. Thanks Demitry for being a prompt and great communicator. The gear list and ground arrangements were on point. Very special thanks to Richard Chandy and Philemon Moshi - guides on our trip and the extraordinary team of porters, cook, etc. A truly 5 Star team who made a challenging trip so much more pleasurable. Their attention to detail and customer oriented attitude was extraordinary.

This tour group provided by Altezza was very well organized and offered periodic medical checks that many other tour groups do not. Highly recommend!
