Kili Training Testimonial: Meg B.
Fit For Trips definitely worked for me. I really appreciated being able to touch base regularly with the staff. They helped me immensely. I have NEVER been in such good shape in my life. In fact, people have asked me how I did it!
I climbed the Western Approach Route and experienced no aches, pains or any other physical ailments on the trip. No doubt this was because I was completely physically prepared. I will definitely use Fit For Trips another time. And hopefully soon, as I am now addicted to adventure!
Kilimanjaro Western Approach Route, June 2010
Review: David & Julie M.
We had an outstanding hike up Kilimanjaro. All of our guides were outstanding. The food was excellent. The planning and services were also far above most of what we had seen on the mountain and otherwise.
Julie and I both reached the summit which gave us an amazing feeling. Needless to say, we both felt that the highlight of the entire trip was getting to know the people with whom we crossed paths including our porters, the guides, our fellow trekkers and the residents of Tanzania. It made an enormous impression on us. Learning about the Maasai tribe way of life was a true eye-opener. We will definitely never forget this experience!

Umbwe Route & Safari, October 2010
Review: Leslee B
I am still so amazed and excited about the trip. I have traveled to 6 continents and this is one of the highlights of my life. I couldn't have imagined a better experience.
All of the guides were great -- leading at a pole, pole pace; giving a helping hand when needed; and ensuring we were eating and drinking enough. Part way up the mountain I realized, as a single traveler, how lucky I was.
We all felt that Thomson was THE top rate group.
