The Danakil desert is an incredible place to visit. Our goal was to trek under extreme conditions and reach the Dabbhu fissure. Mr. Misganaw through Action Tours was able to facilitate our particular needs and Mr. Misganaw trekked with us the whole way. We felt the personal attention which made the trip a success. I would highly recommend Action Tours .

To start with, Action tours was very responsive in my requests for a personalized tour. They worked with me to maximize my time in Ethiopia. I experienced a flight delay, arriving 14 hours late, and they immediately adjusted my itinerary. Once I arrived, I had no difficulty in finding them and we were off. I selected the option for a guide to be with me the entire time, and was glad I did as there were interesting stories, history and tips galore. I got much more than I would with just a driver. That said, the drivers they used were excellent too (driving there being an extreme sport). We experienced flight delays and hotel issues, and each time Action Tours was there to help mitigate and accomidate. Overall, it was a great trip, customized to my schedule and requests and I would certainly not hesitate to recommend them.

We went to Chebera Churchura. The park itself is fantastic and beautiful. Unfortunately, Misganaw is fully unprepared to offer a trip there. We had to leave after one night because of his incompetence and lack of planning. We were so disappointed in how he handled things from start to finish. I won’t get into the details, but it was a very, very poor tour guide experience. We left feeling scammed- thank god the park is so amazing. We’re experienced travels in Ethiopia and have never had an experience this poor with a tour operator. Steer far clear of Action Tours.

This comment is not clear to us. The name displayed on trip advisor page is hidden or attacking our company intentionally. Anyway, as service giver, Action Tours is always working on creation of good company Image. We perfectly know Cheberara Churchura National park, mainly Great Park for groups of Buffalo, Elephants and Hippos at Lake Bulo. Here is the witness who visited the park via Action Tours: https://www.tripadvisor.com/OwnerResponse-g293791-d7262835-Action_Tours-Addis_Ababa.html#/?reviewIndex=6&_k=f9cpyz Clients never be mistreated under the hands of responsible and a licensed Tour company – Action Tours!

My wife and I only had a few days, but we wanted to visit Addis, Gondar and Lalibela. I contacted Mr. Misganaw via email and we agreed on a 4 day itinerary. After that he took care of everything else. We have travelled around the world and met many local guides. Mr. Misganaw is one of the best. He has an extraordinary knowledge and love for his country. He is flexible and trustworthy. His English is perfect. Mr. Misganaw is an outstanding human being. My wife and I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to visit Ethiopia and more so to have done it with Mr. Misganaw. Like others have said, his fee isn't the cheapest, but the level of service he provides is exceptional. If you are interested in hiring a private guide in Ethiopia, I highly recommend that you contact Mr. Misganaw at Action Tours!

I had a free day I addis between meetings. I called action tours and booked a day trip outside of the city. Misganaw - the tour guide and owner of action tours was excellent. He gave me all information I needed in order to decide this was done over the phone with a lot of patient. He was very creative making different proposals. Negotiated fairly and came with the proposal that met my time constraints and fields of interest. He came on time to my hotel equipped with written information but as we sat in the car ( a good one ) I understood the he has more information in his head then in any brochure. Misganau knows everything about Ethiopian history culture wild life and religion. He is a combination of a tour guide businessman and I highly recommend him. No doubt I will ask action tours service next time I'm in Ethiopia.
