We took 11 days tour with Imagine Ethiopia and everything was perfect. Since the beginning the email exchanges with Mr. Bewnetu were clear, quickly and well explained. Once in Ethiopia we have visited different places, taking different flights and sleeping in different hotels. The organisation was perfect and the hotels where we have stayed were really nice. All the guides and drivers we’ve got were really friendly, helpful and nice persons. We were in Ethiopia in March when the coronavirus started to get worse in Europe and countries were going to close borders. 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. We manage to get back home fine and safe. A part from that, we have really loved the tour, the guides and drivers, the Ethiopian people and Ethiopia itself. We will go back for sure in the future and we will make another tour with Imagine. Thanks Imagine for everything and hoping everything’s is going better there. Delphine&Noel.

My wife and I had 8 days between tours of Uganda and Rwanda and decided to visit Ethiopia. We contacted Imagine Tours and Bewnetu was quick to respond with a suggested itinerary and pricing. Everything went perfectly from flights to pick ups to guides etc. We were also treated to a very nice farewell dinner and show in Addis. Highly recommended.

I travelled to this beautiful country in December and could not decide on the tour company, but I am so pleased that I selected Imagine Ethiopia for our 7 / 8 day tour. The company has a number of differentiating qualities in my opinion: - the owner, Bewneto is very hands on and still plays a major role in planning the holiday (he cares because it is his business!) - each tour has a truly local guide (they don't simply take a guide who has read a book, but they hand select people from the specific areas/ tribes that you are visiting). For me, this was absolutely necessary. There was one time where we visited a tribe in the Omo Valley who were not very happy with other tourists, but as soon as they saw our guide, they were smiling and a small child ran up to us who had known him since he was a small baby! - Safety. When you are visiting a truly new culture, it is imperative that your tour company does not make any mistakes (e.g. you turn up to an airport in the middle of the night and there is not guide. Or you have to find your own taxi late at night, etc). Imagine Ethiopia were ALWAYS there. Their reliability was flawless and this gave us an added level of comfort. - Small things: one night, we couldn't get a taxi and so Bewneto's brother kindly offered to take me to a restaurant AND take us home!!! This was not for money, but out of genuine care for us and our well being. They also gave me special coffee, etc that they didn't have to do. Anyway, I could review so any other aspects, but to summarise, Imagine Ethiopia and the country are truly special. Please take the opportunity to visit this remarkable country before it goes 'mainstream'. Too many highlights to mention, but the Simien National park is stunning (but you are truly spoilt for choice). Enjoy and don't hesitate to choose these guys! Cheers

Review of Imagine Ethiopia Tours - Day Tours Pending review My husband and I took an Exotica trip to Ethiopia,the Northern Route last week.This included Bahir Dar Gondar Axum Lalibela and Addis Ababa. Our guide Alex from Imagine met us at the airport and from the moment we met him provided an excellent thoughtful trip for us all. Nothing was too much trouble.He even took us to his home in Lalibela to share a coffee ceremony with his family which was very special. The trip covers some exceptional ancient sites and churches. The trip was well organised and Alebel brought in specialist guide where required. We would highly recommend this trip. Do bring good trainers and expect some unmade roads and a bit of scrambling in Lalibela to see the wonderful ancient churches!
