CUSTOMER REVIEWS.

  •   Shorter review: AMAZING ONE-IN-A-LIFETIME EXPERIENCE, HIGHLY RECOMMEND, Demi and his Diamond Glacier Adventures are professionals, great guides and made us feel very welcome! MANY THANKS, DEMI AND THE TEAM! Do not hesitate and support the smaller business by choosing Diamond Glaciar Adventures instead of larger and more commercialized providers. Longer review: Based on my colleague's recommendation we booked (a group of 4, two couples from Germany/Russia/Poland) a 7 day Machame trip with Demi and his team in July 2019. The price was very reasonable, the communication was great and there were no issues with transferring the money via a bank transfer which was a strongly preferable option for us. We arrived at Kilimanjaro airport and were transferred to Pepe Hotel the same night without any delays. Pepe Hotel is a basic but very nice hotel with all the necessary amenities. Demi had a brief debriefing with us which made us feel in good hands; overall very professional and we were very pleased with the trip planning. We went through our equipment and apparel and Demi provided us with warmer apparel if necessary. The service of Demi and his team on the mountain was top-notch; we felt very welcome, the food was great and the climbing pacing was tailored to us. Demi recommended that we shorten our 7 days trip to 6 days one because of our good shape, which we did and did not regret afterwards; however, this was a...

    The service of Demi and his team on the mountain was top-notch; we felt very welcome, the food was great and the climbing pacing was tailored to us. Demi recommended that we shorten our 7 days trip to 6 days one because of our good shape, which we did and did not regret afterwards; however, this was a risky move on our part because it implies quicker ascend and a higher risk of altitude sickness.

    We made it to the summit on the fifth day - even though it was physically straining, we didn't have any health issues and were super happy to make in such a (relatively) short time. Nature is something out of this world, the views are breathtaking, the whole experience is something we will not ever forget in our lifetime! It is totally worth the price and the long flight and the strenuous ascend!

    As a little after-Kilimanjaro present Demi and his brother Connie invited us for a great barbecue in Arusha which was definitely a nice touch.

    Overall I was an amazing experience and we would definitely recommend Demi and his team as your guides and helpers! Many thanks for making it happen, guys!

    P.S. The Demi's team consisted of 19 people in total. I would highly recommend asking beforehand how large the group would be because it is crucial for tips at the end of the trip. Overall please refer to the tip calculation scheme at Demi's website beforehand; we referred to different resources which state 200-250 dollars per person, the actual amount is around 400+ per person for a group of four which is something you should definitely consider when comparing the prices.

    P.P.S. If you have any questions about our experience, feel free to contact me directly through TripAdvisor. More
