KILIMANJARO OCT 2012
I have no words to describe the whole experience, it was beyond insane but such an amazing experience. Thank you so so so much, I absolutely enjoyed and loved every minute of the expedition. Thank you.

KILIMANJARO SEPT 2011
Questions and requests for help were all directed to Sean. He always calmly and constantly advised and helped us all. From dishing up at mealtimes, to helping with the mechanics of our gear, and guiding us through all the technicalities of the climb, Sean was always there at the forefront of it all. He masterfully tried to weave every member of the team into the fabric of the conversation at mealtimes, giving each of us a sense of belonging to the team.
From the time of pick-up to our drop-off at the airport, Bongo and his team were professional and extremely helpful. Such a delight to deal with people of this calibre.
Thank you to Katherine for effectively and spontaneously dealing with all our administration issues for the climb.
All this made my experince of this challenging expedition one to be forever etched in my memory.

Just to let you know all is back to normal this end. Thank you very much for all you did for me on the Mountain and especially for your sterling efforts in getting Ashleigh and I to the top. Thanks also to all the group for their help in many ways. It was a great team effort and wonderful it ended with us all at the Summit. I would have hated to have had to live with the frustration of a failed attemp. The team guides were excellent as were all the porters. However having you along with us made a huge difference and is something I'll definitely recommend to any of my friends thinking of doing the climb...

'I said to Elaine that the best opportunity ever to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro will be because we are with Sean and it was so true... The whole thing has just been WOW!!!'

'Thank you so much for all the organization that you did in order to make the trip possible. For your constant reminders to send through information, as well as all the well informed emails. Thank you Katherine!
Sean, I had the most wonderful experience, and truly believe I would never have enjoyed it as much, if it were not for you. You were truly professional in every way, and there was never a moment when I felt threatened. I always felt confident that I was always in good hands. Although I never made it to the summit, I have no regrets as I know that you made the right decision for all of us.
It is an experience that will be in my heart forever. I cannot put into words how much I loved the journey!!!'
