I just sent the company an email, seems I might be doing Mt Meru as well, if they can offer me all this in 10 days.

Been exchanging emails with them the last couple of days, they seem like a very serious outfit indeed. They have emailed me back within hours each time with extensive answers to all my Q's. So far I'm VERY satisfied.
They even let me choose my own Route on Kili, so I'm now starting off on the Machame and finishing trough the Western Breach. I will be climbing Meru in 4 days before my Kili-climb.. Total trip Cost; 1863 USD. thats for both mountains. Very cheap indeed, as far as I can see..
thanks again for pointing me in the direction of Mar Tours..

I might wanna consider upgrading the hotel if I were you - the Umoja Lutheran Hostel is quite simple, and breakfast wasn't very good. I stayed the last night at the Parkview Inn, and although 50-60 $ / night it was highly worth it. AC in every room, big bed, hot water and CLEAN!. the restaurant out back is also good and quite cheap. Internet café in the reception.

if just did Kili, Machame route, alpine style. Thus no porters or cooks. We carried and did everything by ourselves. If your on a thight budget and do have the interest to do it this way, it is cheap (for us it was a bonus, the style was the most important).
I payed 980$ (inkludin tips to the guides) for everything related to the mountain.
+ 1080$ for two way airline tickets from Sweden to Kilimanjaro International Airport.
In total with visas, vaccinations, hotels and meals, the trip to Kili costed me 2500$
I think that is quite resonable
