Welcome to the website of Kilimanjaro Review. This website has been developed in response to demand from Kilimanjaro tour operators - as well as users of these services - who feel, collectively, that the presently available Internet resources that allow climbers to review Kilimanjaro treks, are inadequate and can be improved substantially.
The Inadequacy of Trip Advisor and Similar Resources
While it is clear that Trip Advisor began well, what is equally obvious - from, amongst other things, the recent ban against Trip Advisor claiming it's reviews are real by the Advertising Standards Authority - is that is has since been hijacked by service providers masquerading as their own clients and looking to advance their reputations with self-written reviews, and similarly, by pretending to be disgruntled clients and trying to sabotage the reputations of their competitors.
Fake Trip Advisor Reviews
Although it is usually obvious to someone within the tourism industry which reviews are fake and which are real, there is evidence nonetheless that some prospective clients are genuinely duped by fraudulent reviews and are avoiding good companies and booking with unscrupulous ones as a consequence of the deception that Trip Advisor is allowing to be perpetrated. With all this going on it is difficult for prospective climbers, safari-goers or hotel guests to make objective decisions about the service standards of suppliers that they are contemplating contracting to assist them with their holiday or expedition.
Why Kilimanjaro Review is Different
We certainly do not claim that dishonest business owners will not attempt to promote themselves by attempting to deceive unsuspecting readers, nor that they will not try to damage the reputations of companies that they perceive are performing better than they themselves are. The difference with Kilimanjaro Review however, is that without having to implement any arbitrarily discriminative moderating practices, we believe that the outworking of our unique concept will naturally allow unethical businesses to be exposed and for accurate and fair reviewers to be promoted to prominence.
No Arbitrary Discrimination
These aims are achieved by firstly, our deliberately allowing anyone to review anything - providing they are able to contribute information that pinpoints their experience sufficiently comprehensively as to allow the service provider to know whether or not they have indeed served the reviewer. Unlike the moderators at Trip Advisor, we do not infer that we have a telepathic means of proving whether or not that reviewer has actually enjoyed the service that they are claiming to be reviewing. We will therefore allow anything and believe that fake reviews will soon be exposed by a sharing of the experiences of authentic reviewers and business owners, who are invited either to defend themselves against unreasonable criticism, or else to prove that the reviewer is a charlatan with an axe to grind.
Commenting on a Trip Review
Secondly, our concept allows other readers and service users to comment on the review and add their own perspectives, which we anticipate will demonstrate whether the original reviewer was fair and balanced, or whether they are complaining unreasonably, with respect to the proven consistent standards of a supplier as evidenced by the experiences of other users. We hope that you will enjoy using what we believe is the least fascist trip reviews website on the Internet.
