“Our safari to Tanzania, Rwanda and Zanzibar was AMAZING! The guides and accommodations surpassed expectations. Our safari guide was exceptional…everyday we told him the next day couldn’t be any better and he proved us wrong each day. The variety of accommodations gave us a true flavor for Africa — ranging from “glamping” to five-star resorts. Your personal experience with safaris made the trip seamless. We can hardly wait for you to plan our next adventure.”

"We had an absolutely stupendous time — perfection from start to finish. Lovely people, lovely weather, lovely country. We will go on a trip with you two anytime."

"Shane and Barbara have developed not only a professional partnership but deep friendships with their Tanzania Guide counterparts. What that means for you is that you aren’t summiting Kilimanjaro with strangers, but with newfound friends who become part of your life for the week. Climbing Kilimanjaro, which you think will be defined by accomplishing a physical feat, ends up defined by something far richer and longer-lasting than that…connections with local Tanzanians."

"Take this trip! It is at once spiritual and cultural, physical and social. It challenges the body but offers great reward to the soul. Shane and his Tanzanian-based crew were the heart of the trip, blending deep in-country knowledge, years of honed mountaineering skill and, of course, good humor (and amazing cuisine) to reveal a country that, at the end, feels like home. Thank you for the trip of a lifetime!"

"I have no regrets after choosing WAG for a recent trip to Ecuador. The camaraderie of the group and the ease in travel and planning made this an epic trip. Knowing that every aspect of the trip was thoughtfully planned out made it a relaxing and fun trip. No doubt the climbing was challenging, but the logistics were a breeze. I would use WAG for any of my adventures."

"Thank you for a wonderful trip last August to Tanzania that included climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro followed by a safari through the Serengeti. This is the first time we undertook this type of adventurous trip and we are glad we went through Worldwide Adventure Guides. Shane not only helped us to plan for our travels, but accompanied us to REI to help us buy gear we needed to make the climb. During our trip, Shane and his team were not only so helpful in taking care of all the details, but took full responsibility for organizing emergency medical help when one of our family members needed it most. He and his team were awake the whole night to be with us and arrange the help we needed. Shane made our travels truly enjoyable and positive. We are thankful to Shane, Barbara, and the dedicated team they have in Tanzania."
