Amazing experience/once in a lifetime
Sep 2021 • Solo
Altezza and especially Sophia was amazing throughout the whole experience/trekk. Sophia was able to answer all of my questions promptly. The whole operation was 10/10 from the airport pickup to orientation regarding the trekk (equipment check, questions/concerns), transfers between hotels for safari. The whole trip went smoothly and I had full confidence in Sophia and Altezza. The mountain guides and porters made everyone feel welcomed and made it a family atmosphere. Super glad I went with Altezza!

A+ Hiking Company and Experience
Aug 2021
This was my first multi-day hiking experience, and I am glad that I did it with Altezza. When I was doing my research, I mainly read about the Lemosho and Machame routes. I was not that familiar with Rongai, but it ended up being the only one that fit in my schedule. I was very happy with this route as it was not crowded at all and afforded us a variety of scenery. The company was very accommodating, from when I first put down my deposit months before the trip, to the day I left. Vlada was incredibly helpful in providing me with detailed information about what to expect, what I could rent, organizing transport to and from the airport, etc. The equipment that I rented from the company was all great quality and made the journey very comfortable. I actually caught a stomach bug during the hike, but the porters were well equipped with medicines that helped me power through the remaining days. The guides, Liberaty and Peter, and the porters were amazing and extremely friendly. They were constantly checking in, and were very accommodating throughout the hike regarding food, pace, etc. All of my personal needs were taken care of by the crew and I am deeply appreciative of every single one of them. Summiting Kilimanjaro is a once in a lifetime experience, and I am thankful that Altezza made it possible., I highly recommend them.

Thank you Altezza
Oct 2020 • Solo
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!
