Ascend’s guide service was extraordinary! The guides were very experienced (our head guide had summited over 200 times!) and patient with our large group. When some in our group experienced altitude sickness they were nothing short of calm professionals handling it.

If you are looking for a company that provides great value and amazing service look no further!

The guides we had were awesome. Very personable and had a real desire to help you enjoy your trek! Food on the trip was plentiful and tasty. Guides were also very attentive to how the group was climatizing to the altitude to ensure everyone’s safety.

My wife and I have been traveling all over the world for the last few years. We visited Africa for the first time. We were amazed at the professionalism on the part of the "Ascend Tanzania" organization. The hotels offered during the stay in Moshi and Arusha exceeded our expectations. Excellent hotels with an excellent attitude towards their clients. During the trek, both guides showed excellent knowledge of the flora and fauna and were very attentive to any detail. The daily health control was something that we did not expect because in other countries they do not take this matter into account. We like it a lot. On the day of the summit, the guides pushed us to the top without endangering our health. We both reached the summit that day which was an unforgettable experience. The whole group between guides, porters and cooks left an excellent impression. The food during the trek was so good that on the day of the summit my pants could no longer close...thanks to the cook. They met 100% our expectations. Once again, thank you very much for the excellent service and we hope to see you again on a trek on "Mera Peak".

I can highly recommend Ascend Tanzania. My son and me did the 8 day Lemosho route in October. Everything was well organized and professional (which is true for most tour organizers), but what makes Ascent Tanzania stand out is that they REALLY take care of you. The whole team and especially our guides Remmy and Eli were just great - very attentive, experienced and we had so many great discussions. Taking care of a 12 year old child in a motivating way is not easy. During the whole trip we had the feeling that the team is giving their best. I climbed Kili already 20 years ago, compared to then this was like day and night.

One of the best tour organiser if you are looking to conquer the majestic Kilimanjaro. I took a 6 days Machame route and the way I was guided and carried by the whole crew was amazing.

Special thanks to Syed for guiding me in the entire process prior to booking.

Last but not the least, my guide LIVER. He is such a humble and knowledgeable guide and helped me all the time during my trek.

Piece of advise to new hikers to go for min 7 days route. 6 days can be bit exhausted if you are not an experienced trekker.

Best wishes

Stunning service on the 7 days Machame route. Definitely recommend Ascend Tanzania, you get polite porters, accomodating guides (Steven & Dixon were the best 2) and some top notch services already included in price:
- no sales fees as Ascend Tanzania is actually the operator
- 4inch mattress und solo tent if you are a solo traveller
- toilet tent and eating tent
- super warm sleeping bag
The food is delicious and plenty (ask Syed if you require eating meat every day). Syed was very patient with all questions I had and also thanks to the driver to show me the bus station and giving me tips on how to get to Arusha by public bus.
Recommend the 7 day tour as it's more relaxing and better for the acclimatization.
For the hygiene you get a little plastic sink with warm water to wash 2x day so you feel refreshed every day.
Another good thing about Ascend Tanzania is that they don't force you to get up too early (6:30 for wake up call, leaving the camp between 8-9am) so that you have time to enjoy the sunrise, pack, wash yourselves and have breakfast when it's already warm and sunny). Many other agencies start leaving the camps from 6:30 onwards when it's still cold and unpleasant. As you only walk about 4-6 hours a day, (apart from the summit day) you still get early enough to the next camp.

The whole trek was very well organized, main guide and assistant guide very experienced, calm, motivating and helpful. We felt safe at any time and could enyoy the trek at best. Also, the porters crew was extremely kind and helpful, very attentive to our needs. I would definitely recommend Ascend Tanzania. The food was very good and all the gear provided was functional and of good quality (tents and camping accommodation)
