Chiefs tours was recommended to me by one of my close friends who also climbed Kilimanjaro back in 2021. I could not say enough as of how incredible this experience was and how Chiefs tours made it even more epic.
The owner Adidas was quick to provide quotes on time, explain throughly what to expect during the trek, provide a list of what we needed to pack before our trip and an easy way to pay for the tour before we headed to Tanzania.
Once we landed in Kilimanjaro, they were quick to get our details for pick up. The entire trip was door to door service, they picked us up from our hotel in Arusha and dropped us off back at the airport when we finished. While we were in Moshi they provided a very comfortable stay that included drinks and food, a comfortable bed, hot water and WiFi.
We did the 7 day trek via Lemosho route. For our trek they got us the best guides and crew. We had 10 people for 2 of us hikers (right?!). Yes, you need this many people to get you up and down a mountain in 7 days. The crew was incredible, they made sure we had our tent set up before we got to every stop, they had a sleeping tent and a dining tent just for us. We had our own chef/cook Jeff who was incredible, his food was heavenly and he always made sure we were over fed with the appropriate food for the hike :)
Oh, and the guides - Jackson and Calvin - I can't say enough great things about them. They were the coolest and nicest guides. Very well prepared, they have climbed that mountain more times that they can count. They made sure we always had clear what the game plan was and we were taken care of. They also pushed us to reach summit when we felt like altitude was taking our souls away and made sure we understood what to expect at every step. Make sure you ask for them and Jeff when you book your trekking.
I highly recommend Chiefs tours to anyone who would like to climb Kili with a solid company who will make your experience that much greater.
Note - TripAdvisor is not letting me upload the photo with the summit sign so I posted other photos from up top and sunrise :) our guides were also amazing photographers.
