We are also very satisfied with the guide, the cook, porters and all!"


The 68-year-old Lei Stroucken:

Lei: "For me the climb was the ultimate childhood dream, now realized.
Gratefully and with great awe and appreciation for the help from the guides and the porters.
I could experience the beautiful country of Tanzania and the wonderful people who live there.
The guide was great for us and without him many climbers would not have made it.
With respect I will for long remember this fascinating experience.
Also a word to you, Ramon, because you made it possible for me.
The group was very good, all very motivated people with character.
I was glad I could be there!"
