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

Safari and Kilimanjaro
5.0

Altezza Travel handled all of our needs perfectly when we visited Tanzania. I came for a climb and my wife and daughter joined me for a pre-climb safari. The safari vehicle, guide, and lodgings were perfect and a great value. The Kilimanjaro guide team was substantial as well as experienced in health, safety, and guiding to success. The booking and planning process was expertly handled by Anna from the Altezza Office. It is a well-managed organization that provides exceptional value.

The most amazing experience of my life!
5.0

I got this crazy idea to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in February and I also decided that I wanted my boyfriend to join me. We booked our trip and climbed the mountain in August with Altezza Travel. Our guides Victor and Baraja were absolutely fantastic! We could not have asked for a better team to get our butts to the top of that mountain. They were incredibly accommodating and very educated about the Machame route and the best methods of success. They were also very thorough about checking our health and making sure we were safe for the entire climb. I cannot recommend this team and this travel company enough!

10/10! Albert's Altezza team hosted the best Kilimanjaro climb we could have hoped for. Ask for him by name!
5.0

My husband and I felt truly blessed to enjoy the company, expertise, professionalism, services and quality equipment of Albert and his Altezza team on our 7 day Lemosho climb of Mt Kilimanjaro in mid January 2020. Everything was of the highest quality and we miss our supportive team already. If you can ask for Albert by name, we highly recommend his leadership and friendship over what is a deeply satisfying and at times challenging hike. Albert brings confidence, warmth, experience and expertise to the role, and has built a quality and cohesive team around him – from fellow guide Kim, to cook Bacari, camp master Emmanuelle, waiter Sadiq and the whole dedicated crew. The quality of equipment including tents, sleeping matts (the thickest we’ve seen), hot water bottles and the food was outstanding. Thank you Albert and Altezza for making our Kilimanjaro experience a trip of a lifetime.

Hint: pay an additional fee for a personal toilet tent – you won’t regret it.

5 Star Mountain Experience!!
5.0

Transfers, attentiveness, professionalism, consistency…you name it, Altezza checks off every box. I ( and the other 15 members of our group) were constantly raving of our guides, chefs and porters. They honestly made our climb seem like a 5 star experience on a mountain. From the minute we woke, until we closed our eyes at night, everything was done with consistency and professionalism. The food was different every single day (and so yummy!), our camp sites were always ready for us when we arrived, medical checks were done twice a day, and so much more. Oh, we had hot water-bottle-bunnies given to us each night at bedtime to put in our sleeping bags to keep us warm. Just one more thing we became accustomed to. We knew what to expect every single day due to their communication with us and the overall format they followed.
There were many laughs and tears as well left the mountain. We grew close to these men and shared the ups and downs (literally) over the course of 7 days. They aided us in every way possible. They made us feel at home. They sang and danced (for us) and with us, we shared a New Year’s cake with them that they carried up the mountain for us.
Again, I can go on and on and on…..

I own a travel agency and I can not wait to have my clients partner with Altezza.

Stop looking and book Altezza for your climb!
5.0

Just returned from our 7-day climb up the Machame trail with Altezza and I truly can’t say enough amazing things about the company & the folks working there! To set the stage, we were a small group of three women in our early 30s from Chicago IL, USA.

To start, the booking process is incredibly easy and Stasia couldn’t have been more helpful via email. We had months and months of questions leading up to the hike and she answered in detail within minutes. The company has a helpful packing list, and you can rent anything you don’t want to spend money on buying.

When we landed at Kilimanjaro airport our driver was waiting for us, was helpful with our luggage, and made us feel right at home. Upon arrival to the hotel, Ana was so kind and helpful with check in. She went through our gear check in detail & asked great questions about what we brought along to ensure we were prepared. The next morning we woke up to meet one of our two guides, Edwin. Right off the bat Edwin made us feel comfortable and we knew it was going to be a great seven days together. We arrived to the Machame gate for checkin and a yummy lunch + to meet the rest of our team consisting of another guide (Joshua) and our team of 13 porters. They were all smiles and brought such amazing energy!

The rest of our time spent on the mountain was perfection! Joshua and Edwin did a wonderful job of evaluating how we were feeling and hiking us along as they felt fit. The three of us are in good shape and they could tell we could go a bit faster than other groups. Every few hours they magically brought out hot tea during break time. Once you start to get a bit higher and it gets colder, this becomes a highlight! Not to mention some of our best conversations happened while overlooking a gorgeous view sipping tea all together.

Each day we got to camp everything was ready to go! They provide warm water both in the morning and evening to wash up. You also get coffee/ tea in your tent in the morning. The meals were delicious (for real!!) and we never went hungry. They even brought us a cake for New Years AND our chef made one on our last morning. I can’t bake a cake in my condo let alone on a mountain! Also, I’m a veggie and they went above and beyond to ensure I had something separate to eat. Each meal also has hot water to make more tea or coffee; again a perk when it’s freezing! Before you head to sleep they give you a stuffed bunny with a hot pod of water inside. It warms your sleeping bag right up and made going to bed in the cold so much better. Such a lovely add on.

When it came to feeling safe, our guides made sure we were feeling great each step of the way. They checked our heart rate and oxygen levels twice a day and when climbing steeper boulders made sure we felt safe. They also made sure we were drinking as much water as possible throughout the day.

On summit morning, despite crazy wind, snow, hail, and cold, we never once felt unsafe or like we couldn’t do it. Edwin, Joshua, and Frank (a porter who summited with us) did everything from pushing hair out of our faces, re-buckling our backpacks, unzipping and rezipping coats, opening up hand warmers, and even giving us words of encouragement. When we reached the top it felt like such a team effort!

In summary, this company goes above and beyond from start to finish. They truly care about your experience & safety. It was an INCREDIBLE adventure filled with an amazing team (our rafikis!) we miss dearly. Do yourself a favor and book this company and ask for Joshua and Edwin’s team. You won’t regret it!

An Unforgettable Experience!

Julia from Altezza Travel planned an amazing safari for me and my dad in summer 2020. It was a wonderful vacation! Our guide, Tom, was extremely friendly, intelligent, multi-lingual, and professional. We’ve seen the big five and everything was planned and executed just perfectly. If you want to experience an amazing African safari, Altezza Travel is the way to go! We had an excellent time with this company!.

Amazing
5.0

Everything was great.

The briefing before you go is super helpful and their guidance with needed gear saved my butt as it poured rain and I hadn’t brought an extra poncho.

Used their sleeping bag which was perfect.

The guide I had, Albert, was phenomenal, and really made me feel safe and taken care of.

All the porters and staff were amazing

Lemosho Route - 8 days for beginners, fantastic!
5.0

We were a group of four and had the most amazing time with Altezza on this once in a lifetime journey! From day 1 we were well looked after by Joseph, Abraham and our wonderful 15 porters. Our guides Joseph and Abraham were very patient with us (who aren’t very fit or fast hikers) and always made every effort to make sure we were comfortable and fit to keep going to the summit. There was always hot food and water to wash our faces and hands and our tents would always be set-up and ready for us as we reached each camp site. The crew made many special efforts (which i won’t give away on this post!) to make each day of our Kili journey that extra memorable and comfortable. It was definitely a Christmas to remember!!! We also learnt about Tanzania and our surroundings from Joseph and Abraham who were filled with so much local knowledge. Would recommend these guys to everyone! Thanks Joseph, Abraham, and crew for an unforgettable experience!!!

Climbing Kilimanjaro is something that I have wanted to do for a long time and I should have done it earlier! Without the expert and caring guidance of Altezza Tours and the amazing Haij and Maro I wouldn’t have made it. Altezza went beyond reasonable expectations and Haij and Maro were kind, encouraging, helpful and inspired confidence.
Thank you everyone.

Our honeymoon dream come true!
5.0

We booked this trip through a travel agent so was unsure of the supplier when we arrived. We had a proper briefing with one of the staff and she was professional and helpful from the start. We were completely blown away by how great everything was (tent set up, porters, guides, food, etc.)

Our guide Joseph was the absolute best, I struggled on the summit day as I was absolutely exhausted and didn’t think I could keep going. Joseph fed me jellybeans, wiped my snotty nose and most importantly believed in me. He was so knowledgeable, spoke perfect English and was just very pleasant to be around. The entire crew was smiling, welcoming and it felt that they enjoyed their jobs as porters. They really are amazing the way they take all that weight up the mountain.

The tent was one of our favorite parts as the dining area is attached to where we slept so walking in between was perfect. My husband is 6’2 and he has never been able to stand up in a tent, he was excited. The food also was great, had lots of flavor and variety. Alpha the cook & Emanuel the waiter were so attentive to our needs, especially me being a vegetarian.

The schedule of how much we would walk to each camp was perfect and we felt the pace set by Joseph and Gerald really helped us with a successful ascent.

I would highly recommend this company as everything felt seamless, the crew sang a song to us at the end and it actually choked me up! They were incredible people to meet. Really enjoyed this experience.

Fantastic company and look after coeliacs too.
5.0

As a couple we joined them along with 4 others we did not know. My wife has coeliac disease and they made sure beforehand that there would be something for her for each and every meal. Often being able to join in with the main dish and then given something separate on the dishes that weren’t suitable. She had no problems at all which is crucial on a strenuous climb as this.
The crew were all so kind and looked after everyone very well. The guides and porters were happy to work for this company too and was one of the reasons we chose them.

Highest quality and professionalism made a wonderful lifetime experience
5.0

I loved climbing Kilimanjaro with Altezza. It was a wonderful and unexpected lifetime experience. I wish to use this opportunity to thank each and everyone who worked hard to make my climbing experience amazingly unforgettable. My apology that I will not recall the names of all the people who contributed to my successful climbing. Highest Quality and Professionalism is what describes what I have found in your people and product. Stasia,the sales manager, provided me with timely, accurate, and useful information from the beginning to the day I traveled to Tanzania and her communication style strengthened my trust in Altezza. Transportation from and to the airport, the first and last days made landing and exit worry-less. Thanks Valerie and Toni for entertaining the coming climbing experience while dissipating my fears and making sure that I was well prepared for the mountain. I appreciated that Toni welcomed us from the mountain and greeted us on our departure to the airport. Last is my special thanks to Victor and Philemone, the guides and their staff. They have done everything they could to maintain our health and safety, make our climbing experience memorable, let us take numerable pictures, bring us up to the summit, and safely bring us back to the hotel. I would not have reached UHURU peak without Victor judgement who skillfully continued encouraging me to slowly keep up.

Marangu Route - climbing Kilimanjaro
5.0

For our honeymoon, my wife and I decided to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and chose Altezza.
We couldn’t have chosen any better.
The team was extremely profesional: 1 guide per person and 6 porters (including a cook). We were taken care of with a lot of attention, the team treated us really well (including hot water bags before sleeping for the cold, a gentle a nice touch we were not seeing with the other groups). We had medical checks twice per day.
We couldn’t make it to the summit without the help and care of the guides, Stanley and Rodgers.
In the hotel where we stayed before and after the climbing, we had good briefings with Altezza’s crew.
Also, they offer equipment for rent needed for the climbing, if needed: this were of high quality brands.
We highly recommend Altezza, they were awesome!!!!!!

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!

The company were fanstastically professional. Our guides and crew were incredible and their priorities were safety & submitting, which we succeeded! The gear was top quality and the meals were above our expectations.
As for the Safari, wow what an experience! Our guide was very knowledgeable and we saw the big 5 and more. The accomodation at the simba eco lodges were a particularly special experience also. Attentive staff and incredible food amongst a beautiful backdrop.
All in all a well run operation and worth the expense.

3 day safari Tarangiri / Ngorongoro / Serengeti
5.0

Altezza team was very cool, well done. 👌 We were choosing for a long time which company to go with, had a clear vision of what we wanted and what we were ready to pay for, because we had a private tour. An important condition was to have a good car, accommodation in the best lodges and a competent, knowledgeable guide-driver. I would like to personally say thank Julia, she helped to develop an ideal route, answered all our smart and stupid questions, was always in touch, answered WhatsApp, everything was clear and prompt. Everything was hassle-free. And a special thanks to Omari, our guide and driver. Professional, flawless. Every morning in a snow-white ironed shirt 🖐 He showed great knowledge of animals. Thanks to him, we watched the lions’ hunt for bison. Two times we had a chance to see leopards! Lions, elephants, giraffes, rhinoceros and even a hippo crossing our path!

Omari fore made our trip!

Overall, Altezza did a great job, and I would be certainly recommending this company to all wanting to go to Tanzania.

Fantastic safari! Reliable company.
5.0

We were on a 4-day family safari with Altezza and visited Tarangire, Ngorongoro, Serengeti. This is not the first time we visited Africa. I have worked for a long time in a number of countries on the continent, and I know firsthand how difficult it is to organize anything at all here. The guys from Altezza did that just brilliantly! Obviously,they enjoy their work. We had a competent English-speaking support team (special thanks to Julia for providing antimalarial prophylaxis!). Their choice of lodges, safari guide, technical condition and the car – everything is at the highest level! Not a single slip in 4 days, fantastic for Africa! Safari guide Omay was very polite and professional! Also, with his help we found the Big Five and the Great Migration … Thousands of antelopes and zebras crossing the Grumeti river is certainly a sight to behold! In general, both the vacation and the tour operator exceeded all expectations. I will definitely recommend Altezza to my friends. Should I ever visit Tanzania again, the question of choosing a tour operator is solved for me. Thanks for everything you did! Good luck and prosperity!

Climbing Kilimanjaro!!

A week ago now I have just finished 6days lemosho trek up Kili with Altezza tours. I can’t recommend them enough, they will get you to the top and in such a profession and encouraging way! You won’t go hungry and you’ll always know what the plans are as you go. Our tents were always waiting for us and the food was always ready and it was delicious! Our guides stanle and Isack, kept a watchful eye on us and were always there to encourage us. Infact the whole team did their part superbly. My summit was not possible without my guides. Altezza tours looked after us from start to finish. A great company to choose should you accept the challenge to climb the highest free standing mountain on earth!!

We had a guide named Tom who did this trip with our son and daughter in law a year ago. They liked it so much, so we just copied the whole. All we can say is that he was terrific. He’s knowledgeable and very able to adapt the trip to your particular interests. The whole experience was one of our best vacations ever(and we’re retired so we travel a lot). Altezza Travel covered all of the details and delivered everything they promised. No wonder their rating is so high!

5.0

I’d definitely recommend Altezza and the Umbwe tour I did.

Where do I begin…the team was always super responsive and helpful with all of the silly questions I had prior to my trip. Pick up from the airport was provided – if you can, get your visa before you arrive. You can get it at the airport, however you’ll wait for quite a while. I think it took me approx. 1-1.5 hours. The hotel, the staff and the food we stayed at for the first and last night was good. Breakfast and 2 bottles of water per room is included and our hotel also had a pool where you could watch monkey jumping from tree to tree 🙂 If you’re planning to go somewhere after your hike, don’t worry, you can leave extra luggage at the Altezza office.

I felt very safe and welcome all trip long. Our guide Victor and his team took very good care of us. We had medical checks twice a day to ensure the altitude wasn’t getting at us. Everyone of us took Diamox for altitude sickness, which we got from our guide and I can highly recommend it. Just be aware that if you do, your feet, face and fingers might have a tickling sensation occasionally.

The Umbwe route is considered the most difficult. Our group was aged 30-approx. 60 and we all prepared by going to the gym and doing some endurance training. Every one of us made it to the top! 😀 Summit day/night is quite exhausting, since you’ll be on your feet a lot.

The team feeds you really well with breakfast, lunch and dinner and lots of tea and water. We all brought some nuts, protein bars, chocolates, etc. from home as snacks.

At the end of our trip we tipped our guide (who then split it with all porters and the other guides). Everyone of us tipped USD 200 or more.

I had the experience of a lifetime and can only recommend Altezza and the Umbwe tour to anyone!

We ordered a tour for couple, and found excellent organization of the tour. Car and guide were excellent, service – above expectations (knowing, that this is Africa). The guide showed his best trying to make for us nice views on different animals. He succeeded to get hand distance to lions and gepards.

Having some minor problems after waterfall excursion we found unexpected generosity from Altezza helping us to finalize Tanzania impressions in a best way.

Fantastic life experience with successful summit of Kilimangaro
5.0

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.

Haji, Jacob and the team that took my wife and I up the marangu route did an amazing job, throughout the climb, we were both reasonably new to mountaineering and their experience and utmost professionalism made the trip unforgettable. We were both consistently impressed with Haji and Jacob’s knowledge of the mountain and they always went out of their way to ensure our health and wellbeing. They are very safety conscious and were the only guides that we saw who made the effort to conduct twice daily health checks (very important for such a quick climb) which was even commented on by other climbers. Hats off to Haji and the entire Altezza team for a fantastic experience.

We had such a great time on our safari in Northern Tanzania (Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro). We saw a lot of animals and the beauty of the landscapes was just overwhelming. Everything was organized very well by Altezza Travel, they are absolutely professional. Our guide Tom was simply fantastic, we think that he is the best guide ever!! He made it possible to us to see a lot of animals, he was always punctual, always in a good mood, thanks to him we had a wonderful time. Also he told us a lot about local culture and we had a lot of interesting conversations.

Altezza facilitated a fantastic climb to Uhuru Peak. 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.
