We are a boutique tour operator offering a selection of the best adventure trips around the globe.

The Follow Alice story

The idea for Follow Alice was planted when Reto climbed Kilimanjaro with Chris as his lead guide in 2014. Chris had started as a porter on Kilimanjaro in 1999 and had since worked his way up to become a chief guide. His dream had always been to set up his own Kilimanjaro operation. Reto decided to team up with Chris, Kazi and Chrisโ€™s brother Robert and make the dream a reality. Since then, Follow Alice has grown into a global family of local guides and international explorers who all share a passion for travel and adventure.

    A modern tour operator

    We aim to deliver a great service that meets the needs of the modern adventure traveller. One way we do this is by taking out the middle man. We're the folks you make first contact with online, as well as the ones who wave goodbye to you at the airport after your trip! Another way we do this is by making the admin side of your trip as seamless as possible. Did you know you can pay for your trip with cryptocurrency?

    Travel curated by travellers

    Our setup as a team is very 21st century ... we're registered in both the UK and Tanzania, and our HQ staff is a group of digital nomads, sprinkled across various timezones. That said, all of our local leaders and their support staff โ€“ the folks who look after you on your trips and ensure you have fun! โ€“ are locals. So we're a truly global and diverse team, and all the better for it, we believe!
