    Tours with Arre, a real adventure with quality service
    Since the first time I contacted Arre, he was very helpfull and friendly, always taking care of you, even when you were not with them (with things like providing exchange money for you at a very good rate). Although, I'm not a tours person, at the end I did three tours with them (Danakil/Erta Ale, Simien Mountains and Trigray Churches), and in all of them the quality of the service was excellent. Everything was always perfectly organized and flexible, the food was amazing and in huge amounts, and the crew was very kind! I'll definitely do the tours again with them.

    Arre was extremely helpful and responsive throughout my experience with him. He came highly recommended by a friend, and for good reason! His rates are reasonable, service impeccable, and company a joy. I highly recommend these guys!

    Highly recommended!
    I highly recommend Arre Tours for your trip to Ethiopia! We contacted Arre about our trip to Simien mountains and Danakil Depression (incl. Erta Ale volcano). Each tour took three days. Everything was arranged seamlessly before our arrival, and we received thorough explanations about all aspects of these tours. Arre was incredibly helpful and friendly, answering all our questions about Ethiopia, and not just the trips. He has been in touch with us for the duration of our stay in Ethiopia, making sure that everything is running smoothly. During our three-day trip to the Simien Mountains, we had the opportunity to admire the breathtaking nature and even encounter wildlife, particularly the baboons, but also antelopes, jackals and local birds. Included in our tour price, there was a team to set up the camp every night and a chef who cooked our meals. During the Danakil Depression tour, we were provided with a driver/guide, chef, and food & beverages for the trip. The highlight of the journey was seeing the Erta Ale volcano, which erupts at regular intervals, and we were able to walk very close to it. Overall, this was a truly worthwhile adventure. Don't miss out on the Simien Mountains & Danakil Depression during your trip to Ethiopia.

    Friday afternoon Aksum tour 🙌
    I met up with Arre on Good Friday and he kindly offered to show me around the town of Aksum. It was really cool to walk around in the old town, see all the monuments and get a lot of information about the history of Aksum/Ethiopia. Arre is a great guy to walk around and talk with and he knows a lot about anything you might wonder. Will definitely reach out to him next time I’m planning a trip to Ethiopia!

    Arre is a person who catches your attention from the moment you start chatting with him, as you soon realise what a good person he is. We have just booked two tours with him: 3 days to visit Danakil (currently done from Semera, being a longer trip than from Mekele). It is an incredible experience, especially to hear and see the Erta Ale volcano roaring and roaring up close. The second tour has been hiking in the Siemens Mountaims, a beautiful place with amazing monkeys (Gelada Monkeys). These are not cheap tours, although Arre provides a competitive price, as you are always accompanied by a driver, cook, guide and military personnel to ensure your safety. In addition, Arre contacts you very frequently to see if you have any problems and to ensure that you enjoy the experience. On top of that, we saw him before we left and he provided us with a very beneficial currency exchange.

    Definitely meeting Arre radically changed my experience in Tigray. He is very professional, nice and made our time there an unforgettable experience. Highly recommended!

    The Best.
    The best and most devoted company in the region. Very accurate in time and prices, which is rare in Ethiopia. I recommend it to everyone who wants to tour the whole country. Their specialty is the Tigray and Danakil region. p.s. Tigray is very peaceful region.

    Make Ethiopia even more amazing - with Arre!
    We met Arrè by chance in Aksum and this was really a huge luck! He organized our trip from Aksum to Debark and from there to Semien Mountains. The whole Trip was just amazing and very well organized. Arre stayed in touch to make sure we have great experience! Besides that we hat a great day trip in Aksum, where we talked a lot about Ethiopia with him and had a lot of fun!

    Make the Right Choice: Choose Arre!
    We used Arre for a five day tour recently, and we couldn't have made a better choice. From the prompt and professional replies by WhatsApp to the actual service provided, Arre made the experience exceed expectations. We did a full day tour of Axum, and Arre tailored it to our desire to do some more walking and see off the beaten path locales. The following days, we took a tour of the Tigray region to several of its best churches. The only complaints we had read online about the Tigray churches were people asking for tips, so Arre graciously offered to take care of tipping local priests and guides for us. We paid him back the total at the end and got to enjoy the moment instead of having to worry about being hassled. When our travel plans changed due to cancelled flights, Arre arranged alternate transportation so we could head to the airport a day early. Even with a last minute change, his professionalism didn't miss a beat. We couldn't have picked a more fun, friendly or professional guide for our time in the Tigray region. Regardless of your plans, you should be assured he'll be a great fit for your time in Ethiopia, too!

    The best guide in all of Ethiopia
    I was with Arré for just a couple of days in and around Axum but had an amazing time with him. A friend and I hired him to visit some farmlands in the Tigray region to meet and speak to locals and Arré was incredibly helpful in arranging and translating for us. He was also very calm and composed and made us feel incredibly comfortable with him. Next time I am in Ethiopia, I will definitely spend more time with him. I would most certainly recommend Arré and his beloved tuk tuk to travel around Axum and the beautiful Tigrayan region. Arré can be reached on WhatsApp on +251 96 126 3661

    Amazing guide and person
    Arre was an amazing guide and person. We recomend him for everyone going to Ethiopia. He was showing us the area around Axum and he was our daily contact in the area. We felt in very good hands and safe with Arre.

    Excellent Guide and Transportation Service
    Arre provided us transportation and tours from Axum to Gheralta Lodge to Mekele. Together, we saw some off-the-beaten-path sites in Axum, Yeha and Debre Damo on the way to Gheralta Lodge, Maryam Korkor, Daniel Korkor and Abune Yemata while staying at Gheralta Lodge, and Abune Abraham on the way to Mekele. Arre was quick to respond to our initial WhatsApp inquiry and put together a great itinerary at a good price. We can highly recommend all the places we visited. Each one is unique and provides spectacular views. Arre is a very friendly and professional young guide with excellent English skills. He went above and beyond to get us a local SIM card and handled all tips per our request. There are so many people expecting tips when you visit the churches of Tigray. We simply didn't want to deal it, so he kindly took care of tipping and we paid him back at the end of our tour. Not having to worry about how much we should tip and who we should tip made the whole experience much better than it would have been otherwise. Arre is a really top-notch guy, and we look forward to working with him again when we return to this beautiful region of Ethiopia.

    Axum Tour and Simien Mountains
    Arre organized two excellent tours for us. On our first day we went to the Monastery and the Stelen in Axum. Arre knows a lot about the places and how to get there over beautiful pathes. Next day we had an exclusive mini bus ride to Debark. Arre recommend a great and cheap hotel. The trip to Simien (3 days) was very well organized then. Two campgrounds and a decent guide and scout plus an awesome travel group made this trip very special! Arre did a great job organizing everything!

Amazing Experience! This tour was so great to go on, I would definitely recommend it to anyone that visits tigray with Arre tours . I had no idea what to expect from tigray mountains , and this tour, and my fantastic tour guide, Arre showed me all of the amazing Tigray church and foods of tigray.Our tour guide Arre was super personable, and he made sure to ask everyone in the group what kind of foods we wanted to try, and which things we did not want to try. I felt like we saw all of the interesting things that are specific to tigray , and it was all super . Not only did we try some great hiking in gheralta but we also learned some cool history about axum about Tigray churchs . Definitely worth the trip!

I have travelled all my life having lived on 5 continents and travelled full time for the last 19 months. Arre is the most professional, knowledgeable, decent, honest guide I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I had a fabulous tour of the Tigray churches at a very competitive rate which I thoroughly enjoyed. I could not fault Arre in any way - his driving was impeccable and his knowledge of the areas was excellent. I was especially impressed that he was willing to answer ANY question that I had.

Arre also invited me to a local wedding which enable to be feel part of the local culture.

Arre also took care of me on days I wasn’t on the tour - interesting Axum trips, changed money at a much better rate than I could get elsewhere. He even helped booking my flight tickets.

Do not hesitate to book Arre for any and every tour that you are thinking about in Ethiopia - Tigray churches, Aksum, Danakil, Semien Mountains, Lalibela….I will be returning to take more tours myself.

As an aside, make sure to take US$ to Ethiopia as you will get much better deals/rates than using ATM cards.
