Lungo was our guide on 3-day tour in Omo valley. He was very informative and friendly throughout the trip. He helped us to get know better everyday life, customs and history of 7 different Omo tribes. During long rides between tribes he entertained us with various jokes and quizzes. We recommend Lungo to be your guide on your next trip to Omo valley.

At the beginning of February I did a 9 day tour of the Lower Omo Valley which was totally fascinating. My guide was Lungo Kebede and my driver/guide Tesvaye Zewdie. They made a great team and I learnt so much from both of them. Lungo is from one of the tribes in the south so he had very good knowledge of the different tribes and the whole area. Tesvaye is from Addis Ababa so brought a bigger picture to that area and Ethiopia as a whole. They were both very friendly and informative and took very good care of me - even buying candles and hats for my birthday out there! Lungo made all the arrangements and took into account the things I had requested to do. They were both amenable to changing the itinerary a little part way through when I realised I wanted to do some things in a different way. I would advise staying in villages overnight where possible to get a more in depth experience of the people and their way of life. My favourite places were the markets (of which there were many!) as I would experience the tribal people having a good time with their friends and also see all the produce that they took to market. We travelled in a very comfortable four wheel drive with plenty of space. I chose the mid price range option for hotels and they were all absolutely fine and very varied in their locations. Their emails are: lungo.addis@gmail.com. and tzewdie023@gmail.com

Wow - thank you so much for your glowing review about your tour with LUNGO KEBEDE and driver TESFAYE to southern Omo valley. We are so happy that you mansion Lungo and TESFAYE are friendly, informative, knowledgeable and took very good care of you. We appreciate that LUNGO changed the tour schedule in the way that you wanted to see all the market days. We are also glad that you mention the car we provide for your trip was comfortable and you like all the hotel that we booked in mid-range level. We take your advice to do a one or two night camping in the village, that shows you what it’s really like to live in that place, what it looks like from the warmth of a real family rather than the isolation of yet another hotel room or empty apartment You’ll share a meal, learn customs, hear stories and enjoy traditions with the people that really make the place what it is. Both LUNGO and TESFAYE will be delighted to hear that you enjoyed the tour so much, they, likes we all, puts their heart and soul into making every tour they gives for the client good as they possibly can, and when we get great feedback like yours it makes it all worthwhile. We will suggest for our next client to be LUNGO their guide and TESFAYE as a driver. Dear Linda, it was our pleasure to surprise you to celebrate your birth day at Dorze lodge. Thank you for taking the time to provide a review and we wish you happy travels in the future.

I put together an extremely intense 12 days private itinerary and posted it to a dozen of leading Ethipoian tour managers. Lungo's web and approach was somehow different from a very first moment - relaxed and mindful; intuitively he was immediately my preference but I put him into tough competition with all other local tour organizers. Most other tour managers just said my itinerary is too fast and it is just not possible to be covered in 12 days; others priced it death-expensive. Lungo's budget had flexibility to choose more or less expensive accommodations for my own financial possibilities. I asked everything covered: all transport, all hotel nights, all meals, all inclusive. Lungo not only schedule my super-fast trip better than others; he also priced it 20% cheaper than his closest competition. It made me a little worried that can he deliver all his promises or he will start cutting corners when I'll arrive. It turned out perfect and all my fears were baseless. All accommodation precisely as in agreed itinerary; cars spacious and with good drivers; all meals in best restaurants where foreign tourists and local expats eat, etc. I could see and experience everything that was initially planned and much more; Lungo sensed fast what I'm after and proposed additional things to see and do on the go. Actually these small out-of-the-agenda activities were the top highlights of the full journey. One more thing: i happened to see also other tour managers with their quests in tourist catering places and at tourist landmarks. They were mostly wheeler-dealer type of big city playboys when Lungo represented best of the common people. He has had childhood in a tribe himself. That explains a lot why he is trying harder and is much more reasonable than other tour managers around him; dedicated customer service has made this Hamer boy a caring Addis Ababa small business owner and tour manager. When you go to Ethiopia just do it with Lungo Local Tour!

Dear Rain, Thank you for your review of 12 days tour in the North (DANAKIL, ERTALE, TIGRAI ROCK HEWIN CHURCH, AKSUM, SIEMEN MOUNTAIN, GONDAR BAHIRDAR, LALIBELA) and OMO VALLEY (ARBAMINCH, DORZE, MURSI, DASENCH, HAMER AND KARO TRIBES) to spend your time together with the team of Lungo local tour Ethiopia. Waw-sach an incredible comment! Thank you for choosing Lungo local tour Ethiopia from all those tour company that you have listed in your travel list. It is good to hear from you that the price that we have given you is 20% cheaper than the other tour company and also we appreciate that you mentioned in the review the hotel, food and the car we proposed for your trip is suitable because Lungo local tour Ethiopia think quality of hotel and the food matters the most, if it is bad, it can spoil the whole trip. All of your comment that you mentioned are very impressive especially I like the way you express “I happened to see also other tour managers with their quests in a tourist catering places and a tourist landmarks. They wheeler-dealer type of big city playboys” I don’t want to take my client to this place of tourist landmarks (dark circle) Lungo local tour Ethiopia is a special than other tour company. we don't want to take our client to a village and see many 4x4 trucks, buses, motorbikes and 100 people taking pictures with local people posing for them. And I don't want much harassment from the locals asking me to take the photo when it is my choice. My way of calling it a "Dark Circle" is very much how we feel too. And sadly, it has turned me away from visiting there. So we are hoping to find a more authentic experience to show you not just a touristic site but also the real way of local life taking a stress and hustle out of exploring. All of your groups are very friendly and relaxed. we never forget that you celebrate the New Year eve together with us here in Ethiopia. Thank you for taking the time to provide a review and we wish you happy travels in the future.
