“Smooth as Silk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We had GETTS arrange a last minute excursion to Lalibela, plus a full day in Addis Ababa and a half day excursion into the countryside to see Adadi Maryam (a small stone church) and an archaeological site on the Awash RIver.

We had a fabulous time, our guides were personable and knowledgeable, and willing to adapt to our interests. I give them top marks for everything. It was so great to be so well taken care of in country where travel isn't easy, and the right thing to do isn't always obvious to outsiders.

We also felt extremely safe. Our driver was very skilled, and our guide was extremely careful and watchful during our walk in the Mercato.

“Excellent half day tour customized for our group”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

I organized a half-day tour of Addis Ababa for a group of 6 people through GETTS based on their great reviews on TripAdvisor. Yared was very responsive via e-mail and catered to our specific needs. The tour guide and driver arrived on time and the guide, Binny, was extremely knowledgeable. So knowledgeable that one of our group members couldn't stop asking him questions! We visited the Ethnological museum, saw the view of the city from Mt. Entoto (be prepared for a number of people begging and trying to sell you handmade items here), had a private tour of St. George's Cathedral and the Museum, and did some shopping. Everyone in the group had great things to say about the tour. I would recommend them to others.

“Northern Historical Route”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

My daughter scheduled our tour for the Northern Historical Route and from the beginning to the end it was efficient, easy, and well planned. The guides were informative, helpful, and on time. The drivers were safe and always ready to stop for a photo opportunity. Everything was well organized, accomodations were good, and the price was economical.
