What people said about our Climbing Kilimanjaro Lemosho route

“In October of last year, I joined a team of 10 people led by experienced mountaineer Ian Taylor. To prepare to climb Kilimanjaro in January 2010. We trained in the Wicklow mountains at weekends, during which time, Ian instilled a great confidence and team spirit within the group. Prior to our departure we were well prepared both physically & mentally, thanks to Ian’s knowledge and attention to detail. On arrival in Africa it was fascinating to see the whole dynamics & organisation required for the Kili Climb. On the mountain itself, the weather was very pleasant and each day brought a new experience and landscape. After an incredible seven days climb, the whole team summited on January 30th at 07.00am. Thanks to Ian for his generosity with his time and knowledge. It was truly a trip of a lifetime.”  Martin Gleeson, Climbing Kilimanjaro 2010

“Ian Taylor is Inspirational. His dedication towards my training was first class. Not only was his training brilliant but his words of encouragement was key to my successful achievement of conquering my goal of climbing Kilimanjaro.”  Geraldine Sharkey, Climbing Kilimanjaro 2011

“I am from Ireland, now living in the United States. I wanted to take on a challenge in 2009 and a friend of mine referred me to Ian Taylor. From the very first contact Ian was very interested in me and what I wanted to achieve, the service was fantastic and all my fears erased. I took on the challenge of climbing Kilimanjaro and had the experience of a lifetime. Ian has developed a professional team, set up which was much better than other teams we saw on the mountain. A very professional operation. Looking forward to reaching Everest Base Camp with Ian Taylor Trekking next year.”  Richard Thompson, Climbing Kilimanjaro 2010
