    I highly recommend this trip. We visited in the dry season and everything was perfectly manageable and enjoyable. Our CEO was excellent and we had a great mixed group from across the world. The itinerary was perfect.

    The tour on a whole was excellent. However some of the hotels were very disappointing, especially the one in Gondar. We had no hot water, the elevator was broken and the location was very shady. Not what I expected from a tour of this calibre. We... Show more

    The tour was nice overall. The lodge in the mountains had really dirty sheets, which obviously have not been changed in a while, but I guess it is understandable given that they are in the mountains and have little water. Otherwise it was an OK tour.

    The sites were great, but some of the hotels were very average. Also a couple of things from the itinerary should be removed, namely the “hike to the Blue Nile falls” which involves walking on a narrow track over wet slippery rocks and mud, while... Show more

    The group was wonderful, the guide excellent, and the country more surprising than I could ever imagine. Great trip

    Lots of good things and areas to improve. Our guide for Ethiopia- Fieka? was quite helpful and personable. The hotels were in some cases a joke. On place gave us a room where the window opened up to the bar (I could reach out my bedroom window and pick... Show more

    Amazing trip! Loved every bit of my time in Ethiopia. Always a good trip when it leaves you wanting more - more of the culture, more of the landscapes, more of the food! On the heels of this, I may just have to plan a return trip!
    G Adventures commented on this review
    YES! Do it Amado! Thanks for the review, we do appreciate it.
