I called several different guides to check prices and I found that Mark was by far the most reasonable, he was very kind and accommodating and booked everything for me, including equipment.
Unfortunately due to plans that were out of my control I was unable to go for the hike and only let Mark know the evening before. Despite the inconvenience this must have caused he was extremely understanding.
From the exchanges we had I would recommend him to anyone who is thinking to climb Mt.Kenya. He was very honest and well organised- I don't think you could find a better guide!
We were 14 days with mark and his team in the Aberdares, Mt. Kenia and on safari in Massai Mara. It was such a great and very good time with all of them. Mark and his guide Samy had always patience and we always felt save, secure and optimally curated. They are the best guides i ever had and I would like to make another tour with mark and his team!! Everything was perfect! I also loved the delicious meal – it was always so good :-)! I have to say thank you for all and wish all the best!!
I was the weakest link on my friends' recent 4-day trip to the Lenana Summit on Mt Kenya. Our guide Sammy Gathara was unbelievably patient, cheerful, and very competent. He set a good pace for us, and was always ready to answer questions and lend a helping hand. I highly recommend touring with this group!!
Three friends & I just finished a 4 day/3 night trip with MK Snow Tours & it was amazing! We could not have asked for a better trip or a more wonderful team to take us to the top. We were incredibly pleased with everything Mark had organized for us. There were no hidden costs once we got there & our guide, porters, & cooks were phenomenal. We actually live in Kenya & did some research regarding who we booked through. The trip was so well done & it was worth every penny because they took such good care of us. I am going to refer Mark, our guide Sammy, & MK Snow tours to everyone!
Mark and his team led our group up Mt. Kenya in Jan 2015. We had an amazing time. The team was critical in helping us reach the summit and to take care of us along the way. I definitely recommend Mark and his team.
Summer 2014 I organised a large group of visitors and students to go on a Mount Kenya 5 day trip with Mark and his company. We had an amazing time! The trip went so smoothly -our guides were amazing, the food was great and the porters were friendly. We had several people who got sick and struggled and the guides were so encouraging and helpful, they really took care of us well. Mount Kenya is a good, challenging trip -I absolutely recommend this company -they keep you safe and enable you to truly enjoy your time.
I have lived in Kenya for many years and first met Mark Kinyua and MKSnowtours in 2006 I believe. Mark has led me and my guests and family to climb Mt. Kenya twice, and I have referred half a dozen other friends acquaintances to Mark. Without exception every one has come back from Mt. Kenya very pleased with their experience and with Mark and his colleagues - with their helpfulness and their reasonable pricing. I highly recommend him!
I climbed Mt. Kenya with MKSNOWTOURS in December of 2014. We had a wonderful experience enjoying the stunning beauty of the mountain. The entire process was well organized, the food was delicious, and the guide / tour organizer was professional, competent, safe, and friendly. It was a great adventure for a very reasonable price. I will definitely use MKSNOWTOURS in the future and recommend them to my friends.
