Dear Jemal, I would like to let you know that we have had a wonderful trip; all the arrangements you made went so smoothly without any hitches at all, the tour guide, the car hire, the accommodation, the tours, the transfers everything. Your Knowledge about all sites and for the non-stop refreshments like the juice and snacks, you provide us through out the drive, which we did not pay for. Truly Ethiopian hospitality is amazing.

The trip was wonderful! The tour guide Jemal was friendly, enthusiastic and informed. We learned quite a lot about the history and landscape of the region and its people, as well as its present. Jeep drivers Dawit and Belay brought us safely to our many destinations with good humour. There was a perfect balance between free time and tour time. The local experts were terrific - engaging and educated. The accommodations were comfortable and centrally located. The stops along the way were interesting. Thank you so much for making our holiday so memorable.
