The entire crew went above and beyond the whole time to make sure we were safe, well fed (the food was absolutely AMAZING), hydrated, and of course enjoying the experience. They kept a manageable pace for us during the hikes to ensure we could manage it and I’m really proud to say that I made it to the top! I honestly would have not been able to make it if it wasn’t for the guides. Not only were they carrying everything but they were also encouraging without pushing too far and also mentally prepared is every night for what was coming the following day.
I would recommend Chief Tours for anyone considering this experience. They’ll do their best to make sure your probabilities of success are as high as possible and we’ll do everything to give you the best experience possible.
- Kilimanjaro – Machame route 6 days:
10 out of 10! We are so glad we found Chiefs Tours and Adidas. Adidas put together the best team to help us up to the top of the mountain. The team of ten (2 mountain guides, 1 chef, 1 waiter, and 6 porters) solved everything so well. The food was great and with the encouraging words and support from our amazing guides, Washingtone and Elias, we made it to Uhuru peak. The team adapted well to our needs and possibilities, and we always felt safe with them. Thank you so much for making this such a memorable experience.
- Safari 3 days – Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Manyara:
9 out of 10! It is hard to top the Kilimanjaro trek, but Adidas organized a great 3-day safari for us. We were introduced to our safari guide who stayed with us for three days. We stayed at a nice lodge where we also had dinner and breakfast. We also got a lunch box to eat in the national park (fighting of the monkeys). For three days we visited three different national parks and saw the big five and the big seven! Big thanks to our safari guide for sharing his knowledge and driving us around.
Climbing Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak, was certainly not an easy task. I got terrible altitude sickness, and the summit day was one of the most difficult days of my life. So, Julius, my guide, had changed my climbing routine to be more adaptable to the mountain's high altitude, and it worked well.
When I was planning my trip to Tanzania, I was able to locate a number of tour companies. Chiefs Tours, on the other hand, has one of the most reasonable prices of any company I looked into. Even though they had a much lower price than others, they provided amazing services and had amazing employees.
The Kilele lodge where I stayed as my lodging also had a very kind and generous staff. They did my laundry for free, and we always had delicious lunches together. I extended my trip, but I didn't have to pay any additional fees for lodging.
In addition, I misplaced my bag in Zanzibar, but thanks to Adidas, I was able to retrieve it in just two days.
As a young Asian girl, traveling alone can be intimidating at times, but Tanzania was a very safe and friendly country, and it is without a doubt my favorite country I've ever visited.
Thank you to everyone at Chiefs Tours and Kilele Lodge who treated me like their daughter and sister, and it was an honor to be a part of their family.
The last three weeks in Tanzania were the happiest moment of my life, and I made many unforgettable memories there.
If you are planning a trip to Tanzania, especially if you want to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, book your trip with this incredible company! You, like me, would start a new family in Tanzania!
They were flexible with my schedule as I wasn’t sure of the exact date I would arrive due to my working schedule.
Chief tours was best value I found for a solo private tour.
A late decision from my friend to join the trip, made two in total.
I had been training for a year and wanted to push myself to complete the hike as quickly as possible, I needed a tour company and team to work with me on my time scale.
We arrived in Moshi - Adidas met us at the airport and took us to the hotel, checked in around 11pm.
The next morning we met the team and packed up our gear heading off to Kilimanjaro.
Our team of 12 was unbelievable, two guides, 1 chef, 1 waiter, 8 porters lugged all of the equipment around and catered to our every needs.
We pushed the team as I wanted to go fast skipping camp sites to make long days of hiking in order to make a faster ascent. The team did more than keep up they pushed even harder to make sure they got to the camp site first and set up. Very impressive what these guys do.
Our guide where excellent, good English and very knowledgeable on route explaining the mountain to us.
The food was wonderful exactly what you want on the mountain and plenty of it. I don’t know how they do it! Thanks chef! I am a vegan they catered to my dietary requirements.
On arrival back we celebrated with the team, singing dancing and a few beers!
Adidas had our luggage ready and his driver take us to Arusha shortly after.
We had an incredible trip that was made possible due to this tour company and their team.
I highly recommend them for anyone who want to complete the mountain quicker that what you find online or if your like me and need flexibility with your trip. These guy work with your schedule.
Thanks to Chief Tours - Adidas and your team for making our trip an unforgettable experience.
Afterwards we went on a 4 days safari tour and had an amzing time and saw alot of animals.
We had a great vacation and we can thank Chiefs tours for that so we can really recommend Chiefs if you want to go to Tanzania.
