    We travelled in second half of February 2020 (right before pandemic hit the world). Climb We had an amazing experience during the Kilimanjaro climb. It exceeded all of our expectations, starting from the pick up to climb, to transport, to all other things. Rashid and Gerald (our guides) were great, and were exceptional in handling our 10year old son, who despite his athleticism, required a lot of a Democrat handling. :) We are super thankful to them and the entire crew for helping us climb up the mountain and reach the top. By the way, the crew was awesome, everybody was on the best service! Altezza has the right formula, in terms of what they have to offer. We certainly felt like tents, services, service on the climb was superb. Food was just out of this world. I was doing mountain climbs for 10 years, albeit shorter, but usually get by on sugar bars and snacks for 2 days, so getting 3 course meal was insane (meats, soups, veggies, fresh fruit, etc). I don’t even know how they could improve it. It was great and I would highly recommend to anybody who is able to climb. Safari With regard to safari, we had great time as well. Having a private car to just our company was superb, we liked our guide. He knew what he was doing, got us to the right spots to see the animals. I wished he would have narrated a bit more, but I understand that days get long and he might be tired or needs to focus on the road. But all in all a great experience (we were also day 10 of our trip to Africa, so we were getting tired too). If you are planning a trip to the region, Altezza will provide you with top class experience !!! READ MORE
    Excellent service, best guides.

    It was our first hike, so we were a bit anxious about the high altitude sickness and our readiness to the climb. But our guides helped us to win the mind game and we made it despite a snowstorm. Thank you, Joseph and Soleman you are the best!

    We arrived in Tanzania excited about our climb up Mount. Kilimanjaro and safari across the Serengeti NP, to celebrate tying the knot. On arrival at Aishi Machame Hotel (where Altezza Travel is based) we were greeted with a refreshing smoothie and hot towel and then had a tasty meal in order to prepare us for our 7 day climb on the Machame route the next day, that we had organised with another provider. That night all the Altezza tours that were leaving the next day were having their briefing to ensure climbers felt safe. Our tour operator did not turn up (Flash McTours, Kenya - avoid at all costs). We spoke to Anna from Altezza and told her the situation. She was really understanding and immediately found us another Altezza tour to go on for the next day which was a 6 day trek on the Lemosho route. Before we left, Alex (Altezza Travel) came to see us and find out about the other bookings we had made with Kenya Flash Mc tours and we worryingly informed him that we had booked all of our safari tour with them. Alex reached out to all these providers whilst we were on Mt. Kilimanjaro and he spoke to the Tanzanian tourist board, Tanzanian police, Kenyan tourist board and other providers to ensure that we would not have to go home early and would have the experience of a lifetime! Altezza organised an amazing safari experience. Our safari guide (Dennis) was so knowledgeable and spotted all the wildlife we could ever of dreamed of seeing! Thank you so much! READ MORE

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Декабрь 2018, первый раз в Африке, сафари по трем паркам: Нгоронгоро, оз. Маньяра, Серенгенти. Такое хоть раз в жизни надо обязательно посмотреть!!! Об организации: все безупречно, от встречи до проводов. Отличная организация, и великолепный гид, который смог показать нам и "великую зверскую пятерку" (лев, леопард, гепард, носорог, слон), и много других зверей, почему-то не названных великими, но очень интересных. На модный вопрос "порекомендуете ли фирму своим знакомым" твердым голосом сообщаю "Да" Спасибо! READ MORE
