Did a customised and private Addis Ababa city tour for two in December. Arranged this with a few weeks' notice but got a swift reply from Ermias and a quote that was at least a third cheaper than a quote from another well reviewed agency (and which had more constraints). It was able to accommodate all the places I wanted to visit, which frankly was a few more than what I usually saw advertised on day tours. I also had the benefit of a guide, Wondiye Kassaw who was sincere and frank with his commentary on the places visited and descriptions of local life and views and really helped initiate us more deeply into our travels in Ethiopia. He was flexible with arrangements and also took out some time to help us with obtaining SIM cards for data access.

I really cannot say enough good things about travelling with Stunning Ethiopia, and really I am not exaggerating when I say we were completely spoiled during our trip. Ermias checked in with us daily, and somehow managed to organize everything we asked for or wanted, even with little notice. He is a blast to hang out with, and each time we went out with him it was easy, comfortable, and memorable. He is warm and accommodating, pays attention to detail and goes out of his way to have everything work out. He truly is invested in making sure you have the best trip possible, and frankly I'm going to miss this level of care on all future trips! Everything was easy and Ermias and his employees made it possible for us to completely relax, knowing that everything was taken care of. I cannot speak highly enough about this trip and that is largely due to the professionalism and fun that Stunning Ethiopia and Ermias brought to it! I can't wait to come back and will forever encourage everyone I know to travel with Ermias and check Ethiopia out (what an unbelievably diverse, stunning, and memorable country). Highly recommend the usual South and North tours (both incredible beyond words), but also Harar (phenomenal), the Rock churches of Tigray (breath-taking), the Danakil (other worldly), and hot air ballooning on the outskirts of Addis at sunrise.

Thanks Ermias! Can't wait to show you around Canada :) :)

Ermias arranged a three week customized tour for 3 where we saw so much of what Ethiopia has to offer. We spent time in the Southern Omo region visiting different tribes and villages, saw the Danakil depression, hiked through the Simien mountains, visited Axum, Gondar, Lalibela, Harar and so much more. Not only did Ermias arrange a spectacular trip he checked in with us at every location.
Stunning Ethiopian tours is run by an amazingly professional man who went above and beyond to assure that we had the most memorable experience. Ermias facilitated a surprise hot air balloon ride for a friend, getting tattoos, and any last minute wish that we came up with.
Highly recommend this company and Ermias!

To say that Ermias is fantastic, is an understatement. He was professional, easy going, friendly, and he cared so much about us. From the time we arrived at the Addis airport, to the time he dropped us back off, everything was well planned, and incredible. We had 2.5 weeks in Ethiopia, and we saw everything. The drivers and guides in every location were all very good, always had water and bananas for us, and would often get us coffee if we stopped. They helped us out with authentic foods and dinner reservations and we enjoyed getting to know them all and have dinner with them. Ermias checked in with both us as well as the drivers every day to ensure that things went well and there were no issues. When we flew back into Addis, there was always something planned if we wanted and he made the experience great. He accommodated last minute ideas we had, we met and had dinner with his family and he really made it the trip of a lifetime.
I would 100% go back to Ethiopia, this was the best trip I have had.

Wir haben die historische Nordtour mit den Simien Mountains (mit Inlandsflügen) gemacht. Die Tour war super durchgeplant und alles lief perfekt ab. Wir waren zu zweit unterwegs und hatten jeweils vor Ort einen englischsprachigen Führer und einen Fahrer. Alle waren super nett! Die Guides haben gutes Englisch gesprochen und waren mit Begeisterung bei der Sache.
Die von Ermias gebuchten Hotels waren auch klasse und der Ablauf der Tour war super durchgetaktet.
Wir sind begeistert und würden jederzeit wieder über Stunning Ethiopia buchen!

We did the northern historic tour (inkl domestic flights and the Simien mountais).
Everything was perfectly planned. We traveled as a pair of two and had English speaking guides and a driver at every destination. All the people were super nice and the guides spoke good English.
Ermias booked great hotels for us and planned a perfect travel schedule for us.
We enjoyed our time in Ethiopia and can only suggest to book with Stunning Ethiopia Tours.
We had a great time - thank you very much!

Ermias and his company are fabulous.

My partner and I were in Ethiopia for 9 days and we planned our trip very last minute through Ermias (based on a friend's recommendation) and we couldn't have been happier with the result. He greeted us at the airport when we arrived and when he took us back to the airport 9 days later, we were leaving as friends.

He organized a great experience for us all very quickly - we were worried we wouldn't get to do everything we wanted because of our last-minute planning but Ermias took away all stress and made it possible for us to do Danakil Depression, the rock churches of Tigray and plenty of time in Addis Ababa as well. Our guides were friendly and knowledgeable and Ermias always made sure we had transportation between each experience. highly highly recommend his company - you will feel like family and get to enjoy the stunning Ethiopia!

Ethiopia is really stunning. This was our second trip to Ethiopia, and the first one with Ermias. The trip of two weeks was very well organized, everything went smoothly and without any trouble, thanks to him. He is a great organizer (we think he would be a very good president of Ethiopia). He is really a very nice guy. He is never tired (though he once was sleeping in the bus), he has a very good sense of humor (though he once was very angry, because Ethiopian Air had forgotten to unload some suitcases) and he is always very willing to help. He is a great problem solver too. And this also accounts for the drivers Kinfe and Dawit. All three really feel like family after two weeks driving through Ethiopia. And Ermias is very enthusiastic about his own country, and that is only right. It is a beautiful country, and we keep the best memories of it thanks to Ermias, Kinfe and Dawit.

I am not sure how TA awards its Certificate of Excellence but in this case I would argue it is not warranted at leadt from my experience. I located this company through TA and tried to give them a shot given the reviews. I have not traveled with this company but believe me I tried. In early November I wrote them regarding my interests. It took 10 days to recieve a response with an excuse that he, Ermias Ketema, was on a tour. One man operation? OK I accept this. He asks me a long series of questions about my requirements which I answer in detail within hours and send it back on November 20. On November 30, 10 days later and not hearing back, I send a follow up email. It is now another 10 days and still no response. I give up. And this is “Excellence?” Too bad - I was prepared to spend big $ for this trip.

We had a wonderful 16 day trip to Ethiopia, comprising city sightseeing, trekking @ Simien National Park and Depression tour. I found Stunning from Tripadvisor in view of its good comments so far. I also contacted several tour agencies and Ermias of Stunning was the most responsive. He suggested sensible and fantastic itinerary based on our requirements and offered competitive package.

We are so glad to choose Stunning. Overall arrangement was well thought, the vehicle was comfortable, the hotels arranged were mostly up to our expectation.

Ethiopia is a country with rich culture and awesome nature. We highly recommend Stunning to those who plan to Ethiopia.

Last June/July, I visited Addis Ababa, Hawassa and surrounding areas in the southern mountains as part of a mission trip. This time I returned on my own to tour the UNESCO sites in the Amhara Region of northern Ethiopia. Given my previous experience with Ermias Ketema of Stunning Ethiopia Tours, I trusted him completely to plan/organize what was undoubtedly a trip of a lifetime. I arrived on November 27th and had only 8 days in country. He made sure I made the most of every moment.

While in Addis and at my request, Ermias introduced me to daily life in the capital city. I ate lunch with locals, walked through a "supermarket", bought sambosa at a neighborhood shop, strolled the religious market looking for colorful umbrellas, and danced at Mama's Kitchen until the early morning hours. He also taught me basic phrases in Amharic so that I could let people know of my gratitude for the warm Ethiopian hospitality I enjoyed.

After a couple of days to adjust to the jet lag and altitude, we started our trek in the north. We visited first the rock hewn churches of Lalibela. It was St. Mary's Day so we were able to witness and participate in Orthodox services. Although a World Hertitage Site, there is little infrastructure in Lalibela. I saw only 1 sign in English that gave information on the significance of the 11 churches dating back 900 years. Without a guide, I would have been lost and missed out on much of the meaning of what I saw. Nothing was marked, but with Ermias - I traveled through dark tunnels connecting the churches and emerged in sunlight that added the depth of experience intended by the builders. I was guided through half of the churches one afternoon, and the other half the next morning. The light was perfect for photos. With Ermias present as interpreter, we were also able to talk with one of the Orthodox Priests, who now 88 years old, shared stories with us of his childhood as a shepherd during the Italian occupation.

Ermias planned it well so that we would be able to visit the Saturday market after the churches. The market was large and included livestock, spices, pottery, and grains..... a marvelous opportunity to enjoy the (good) smells, sights and sounds of rural Ethiopia.

Our next visit was to the castles of Gonder, known as the Camelot of Africa, another UNSECO site. These castles were built over 6 generations of kings and rivaled many of the castles I have seen in Europe. They included concert halls and libraries, baths and spectacular views. Ermias found an articulate and very knowledgeable local guide who escorted us through the grounds. Dinner that night was at a nice buffet served at the Four Sisters... some of the best food I had in Ethiopia. By myself, I would have eaten at my hotel. There are few street lights in Ethiopia. But with Ermias as an escort, I was able to enjoy this gem.

The next morning I was collected at my hotel to join a couple of other tourists for a day trip to the Simian Mountains National Park, another UNSECO site. Ermias had invited these other tourists to join us to half the expense, a thoughtful gesture which I appreciated. A park ranger and scout accompanied us on a hike along a ridge 1000 feet above the valley. We walked through fields of thyme and colonies of baboons. We saw 2 waterfalls and took photos all along the route. Ermias also arranged for a wonderful picnic.

The final day in the north was spent in Bahir Dar, first on a trip to the Blue Nile Falls, and then on a boat trip upon Lake Tana to see one of the many monasteries dating back to the 13th century. It was an unforgettable day. The frescoes were bright and colorful and included stories from the Gospel of Mary, stories lost to much of the western world. The boat ride ended with a family of hippos playing near the mouth of the Blue Nile.

I spent this week as a woman on my own. I am 5'2 and unable to speak the language. I felt safe and protected at all times. I loved every minute and feel as if I am privileged to have seen amazing sites too few Americans even know about.

I highly recommend Stunning Ethiopia Tours. The drivers and guides are friendly, family men. Ermias Ketema is a professional who will tailor your trip to your specific interests and energy level, and leave you looking forward to your next trip to Ethiopia. It is about relationships, and with Ermias, you will have a new friend as well as guide.

I plan to return in June.
