What our Kilimanjaro Climbers are saying about Mountain Gurus!

“This trip was beyond my wildest dreams! Africa is absolutely an incredible and unique place to be. Climbing Kilimanjaro was an awesome and challenging adventure. I would recommend this trip to anyone who would like to test their limits, be challenged and have a wonderful time doing so.” 2011 Kate D

“This trip far exceeded my expectations in every regard. I had no idea that the food and services would be Five Star. If you are looking for a great customized adventure use Mountain Gurus. Simply the best!” 2013 Carlos N

“Hey Dennis, we made it back to Arusha and all of us made it to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro!!! I can not tell you what an amazing experience you and Julius our guide put together. We will be writing more once we get back to faster computers but so far this has been the most perfect trip and honeymoon so thank you!!!!” 2014 Rachel P

“What an amazing trip. We have no experience with mountain trekking, but MG made the trip a breeze from start to finish. The office in the U.S. was easy to work with, literally spent hours talking us through the trip, and even spoke with our guide while we were on the mountain (yes Tanzanian cell phones worked on the mountain!). Once we got there, we never had to worry about transportation, which was a relief. The trek itself was unbelievable. Our guide was by far the most knowledgable man on the mountain, who has been leading treks for 30 years. Overall, an unforgettable experience. It was exhausting, but worth every minute.” 2014 Sara C
