Allen Volpe (Canada) – Successful summit on 23 January 2018
I had the pleasure of summiting Mt Kilimanjaro with our guide, John, and assistant guide, Nelson, on January 23, 2018. John, Nelson, and our whole team were amazing throughout our 7-day adventure on the Machame route. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food we were served – I’d do it again just for the food!! There really isn’t anything that can be said in words that could describe just how incredible my experience was; mostly because of the team that I was lucky enough to climb with. John was diligent in keeping us on a very manageable and enjoyable schedule, and was very detailed in letting us know what to expect, what to wear, and how to prepare for each day. I trusted John completely with my care – nutrition, safety, and overall health – and it really helped with my confidence throughout my climb. Thank you for providing us with such an amazing team, who I wish I could still remain close friends with.
