          The best tour & travel company in Ethiopia
          We were a group of 10 people and traveling in Ethiopia and we booked Ethio Afro Tours for sightseeing in Addis ,omo valley, and northern Ethiopia, simien mountain, Lalibela, Gonder, Bahirdar, Dankil, volcano ,and blue Nile falls. and the wonderful bird watch experience. We were very happy with the excellent service provided by our tour guides and drivers overall. Most of our guides we used were Amazing and very knowledgeable and knew the history of the area so we'll we we're very pleased with Ethio Afro Tours service. We have used Ethio Afro Tours before as well for a trip to Bale mountain and by now know several of their drivers and staff members they are all wonderful people who are they trustworthy and responsible. I will always recommend Ethio Afro Tours to anyone traveling to Ethiopia!

          8 day Northern trail with Ethio Afro tours - 10/10
          I’ll have to start with the pre -trip when i connected with Mihiretab ( across ET & India time zones !) - we connected about a month and half before our trip which gave us enough time to lock in the finer details of our driving trip , which was focussed on the Northern trail ( Addis - Bahir Dar- Gondar- Lalibela). Super smooth communications and Mihiretab was flexible to customize requests ( we were a couple travelling). Clear comms and fair negotiations with the pricing . Ketema was our driver for this approx 1600 kms trip , and we could not have asked for anyone with a better temperament and timeliness for this road trip- never once did he miss our scheduled meeting times. We booked local excursions and guides separately (Lake Tana 2 monasteries boat trip at ~ 4000 Birr and USD 50 per head + Birr 1300 for the guide at the Lalibela churches ) We got a pretty decent 4X4 Landcruiser for the trip ( you’ll need one in Ethiopia ) and had booked our accommodations independently. Ethiopia is totally ready to welcome travellers and to present its ancient history , culture , landscapes and of course the aromatic coffee! Tip - you might want to carry some writing pens as that’s what a lot of little children on the streets will request you for ( and not money !) All in all , great experience on the trip made possible by Ethio Afro tours - Mihiretab and his crew on the ground 👍

Once in Ethiopia we have visited different places, Omo valley and the Simien mountain taking different flights and sleeping in different lodges and resorts . The organization was perfect and the lodge and resort were we have stayed were really nice. All the guides and driver’s we’ve got were really professional, friendly helpful and nice person’s. We had to change a bit our plans to go back home before expected. The company helped us to reschedule our planning and our flight.

          2 Weeks Luxury Tours in Ethiopia, Nourth Historic Route
          Me and my family decided to visit Ethiopia, we do our research on operators and are picky about our selection for service providers. When planning a custom 2 weeks day tour of the historic northern route of Ethiopia, we reached out to several tour operators, and ended up selecting Ethio Afro Tours due to their prompt response time, flexibility with our requests, easy of transaction. We had a good idea of what we wanted to do and where we wanted to stay, and spent a lot of time corresponding about specific. of the itinerary- Ethio Afro Tours team always responded quickly and accommodated all our requests. the trip itself was fantastic. The vehicle that are used for transportation are Luxury, and able to transport you safely on all Ethiopia roads, which run the gamut from smooth asphalt to death- defying muddy mountain trails. Our driver- and guide they where very professional, courteous, funny, and so attentive to our needs - all Lodges and hotels fantastic, the local food is fantastic. North Ethiopia is beautiful. Trekking Simien mountain National park is breathtaking, Lalibla Spectacular Churches, Gonder castles, Bahirdar Lake Tana, Tigray rock churches and cliffs, many others . Please make sure to spend time outside enjoying one of the prettiest places on earth. There are also thousands of years of history and culture to learn about. It’s one of the oldest civilizations on the planet. So, without hesitation, I recommend Ethio Afro Tours, Mihiretab is responsive, trustworthy, knowledgeable and competent... detail oriented so that your needs are met before you even anticipate them. We plan to return to Ethiopia for the Omo valley tribes and Ethio Afro Tours, Mihiretab will be the first person to contact to begin the planning process. Thank you so much, for Ethio Afro Tours, Team!

          Wow - what a fabulous, memorable trip!
          We selected Ethio-Afro tours because Mihretab was so quick to respond and so accommodating with all our requests as well as answering our many questions. He found the perfect guide and perfect driver to accompany us. Whenever there were any problems, he was immediately available and within minutes, took care of it. We have never had a tour director (and we've had many all over the world) be this responsive and easy to work with. Highly recommended!

          Best tour in addis Ababa
          10 hours layover in Addis Ababa, we decide to visit Addis Ababa and we decide to pick up Ethio Afro Tours to organize our trip. Since we read the other tourist reviews. And we were happy to do our with Mihiretab/ Ethio Afro Tours. They pick us up from the airport and transfer us to the airport after we finish our trip. We experience a Cultural food and traditional dance and we visited the National Museum, Entoto Mountain, Holly Trinity Church, The big Market Merkato and the coffee Shope Tomoca and Food tours. All I can say as that Ethio Afro Tours Guide and driver was probably the best tour company. Very knowledgeable and polite, professional and overall a fun and great Team! We would highly recommend this Local Company to anyone interested to visit Ethiopia! We will definitely come back to Big trip to Ethiopia.
