Well organised tour by Dezy and team, from airport pickup to airport dropoff. Thanks!
Dezy has surrounded himself with a good team of guides & cooks, given his years as a guide himself in the Simien mountains. Fanta our guide, Misgana the chef and the whole support team right down to the guards were great. Fanta was able to guide our group comprising individuals of varying age and fitness, and we all made the uphill trek in good time, without outpacing the slowest walker. The food included fried fish and chicken stew for dinner on a 3 night/4 day trek - deliciously prepared.
The toilet facilities at the first camp Sankaber, overseen by the Simien Mountains National Park authorities were terrible. Dezy had organised to have a private shower and toilet tent for his clients but due to administrative issues with the Park authorities, was not allowed to use the facilities.
The scenery was spectacular - however, one needs to be mindful of the lack of safety barriers as one slip near the edge would prove fatal. Fanta was particularly diligent in warning our group of the dangers, unlike other guides which we met and observed.
We would highly recommend Dezy and his team to anyone who is contemplating doing the Simien mountain trek.

I booked a 12 day tour with Dezy from the UK.
There are many different tour operators following the same routes up the simien mountains and staying at the same campsites alongside you. I met a couple of other travellers from different groups allowing us to compare our experiences. We were the only group of 5 or 6 who had our own mess tent allowing us to eat and relax under canvas where others had to eat outside in the cold. Our group was 6 people. Others had 12. Our individual tents appeared to be brand new. Our guide was Yohannes +251 91 806 6711, A really nice english speaking university graduate whose knowledge of the park was exemplary. The food was first class and i would like to give top praise to our chef but i cant remember his name.
Dezy organises tourist trips across ethiopia. I paid upfront in Gonder but i was looked after all the way. I was met from flights, driven to hotels by english speaking drivers who never asked for tips, entrance fees and guides were paid on my behalf. Infact the only people to ask for tips and money were the priests and monks themselves. Typical!
My tour ended in Mekele where i was picked up from my hotel by magmaflow for a 3 day tour of the Danakil Depression. Again a dozen tour operators do this. Do they all provide free beer/wine? Do they all drive upto the top camp at the volcano? I dont know. But again, we were looked after superbly. We were the first group at the salt pool and the salt lakes and jacuzzi allowing us time to swim in bliss before the hoards of tourists from other operators followed in their 4x4s followed.
True,if i had organised everything seperately i may have saved money but i had 12 days and 3 booked internal flights. Everything had to work perfectly and Dezy made it happen and he was in contact by Whatsapp the whole way and booked the odd hotel for me when i got stuck. First class!
Shame his photo isnt on his website, he spells his name several
different ways and appears to have several different websites but he delivered for me!
Brilliant holiday.
Be aware you can't exchange unwanted Birr back to Dollars at the airport and at Addis airport they wont even let you buy duty free alcohol with Birr!

The guides were super friendly and well informed. The food throughout the tour was exceptionally good, so was the organisation of the trip. The hotels we stayed in were very fancy an sophisticated. We probably wouldn't have chosen them ouselves, but it was fine.

The landscapes are just fascinating, so that the relativly long car drives didn't bother us too much. Our highlight was the Dallol Depression, in which we felt like being on different planet. Overal, our experience was unforgettable.

A lot of people are involved in the program ( guides, scouts, chefs, drivers,...) and we had to worry about nothing. Still we think that the price was quite high, so if you are on a budget, we recommend checking other travelling options as well.

My boyfriend and I are back from a wonderful trip in Ethiopia!
We visited a few cities but also did 2 treks: one 2 days trek in the Simien Mountains and a 3 days trek in the Tigray. The landscapes in the Simien mountains are amazing and we managed to spot the Walia Ibex thanks to our great guide Mike (Mitiku) and came very close!
The Tigray mountains with its churches are pure magic!
Both hikes were organized by Dezy and it was all perfect! Dezy reacts very fast to emails or messages and adjusts the hikes according to your wishes.
I would definitely recommend his services to organize your treks in Ethiopia!
We loved it!

Dezy organised a tour for a family of 6 (2 people 60+) to the Danakil Depression for 3 days and 2 nights. The tour was absolutely brilliant. The terrain is amazing and feels like you are on a different planet!
Dezy organised a very experienced and knowledgable guide for us - Tesfa. The whole trip was planned carefully to ensure we were walking when it wasn't very hot and so we could try and reach places alone so we could make the most of the natural beauty. The guide also cares a lot about the local communities.
Before the trip we were worried about the lack of accommodation and sanitation and I explained this to Dezy - he ensured his team had clean mattresses, gas masks for the volcano, good chefs and drivers, vehicles with AC etc.
He is responsive on WhatsApp which was very helpful when planning.
I would highly recommend his tour agency.

We spent three weeks last year in Ehtiopia, on a tour organised by Dezy Dezy and his Simien Mountain team. I was recently asked by a friend if I would recommend Dezy Dezy and I was more than happy to do that. My friend pointed to the poor review posted by J6706XRscotth and I have just read it.
My wife became sick on our tour, due to a food bug she picked up in a restaurant in Gondar. Dezy Dezy's response and his rearrangements of our trip were just superb. It is great to see that virtually all of those who wrote reviews posted the same glowing reports. People going to altitude, whether it is in Ethiopia or anywhere else, should be prepared, should not be relying on others to prevent them getting altitude sickness.
I suggest that people ignore this review. I could not speak more highly of Dezy and his team. Everything on our trip went like clockwork. When we were due to be collected the transport was there. His arrangements ensured that we saw the real Ethiopia, stayed with families and met the people, saw the wonderful sights.

We had a fantastic 3-day trip with Dezy’s company to Simien Mountains. It was very well organised - we communicated with Dezy via email and WhatsApp and were collected from our hotel and dropped off again at the end. Our guide in the mountains was brilliant and spoke great English. I found the walk quite challenging as I had a cold and was not used to the altitude but the guide was really supportive and we took regular breaks. There were 4 scouts with us and there were always 1 or 2 at the back with us and always waited. All food and equipment was provided and food was delicious and was lots of it! The team arrange everything so when you arrive at the camp in the late afternoon tents are up, bags are there and there is tea and coffee. They were very thoughtful and as we were there for new year’s eve the chef made a cake which was really sweet. All in all a great trip for a very reasonable price.

The 3 day hike in the Semien Mountain National Park was a unforgettable experience with excellent support from Dezy and his team. Experienced guide with good knowledge and good food and equipment.
All throughout the 10 day adventure, Dezy and his team were beyond reliable and committed to make it a memorable experience of Ethiopia, it's people and places. People that really go the extra mile.

We went on a three nights - four days trek through the Simien mountains in early January. Everything was well organised. The material provided (tent, sleeping bags, mattresses) was of good quality and clean, the food was very good and all staff was very dedicated (still I'd like to specially mention cook Solomon and our guide Jejaw). It was excellent value for money. And it was no problem to get it organised within a few days. Dezy is responding to emails very quickly. We highly recommend him and his guys.

This is probably the fifth time I've arranged a trip with Dezy for myself or for friends. He's a great guy and born and raised in Debark. He has a brilliant network of people who work for him on the trips. For example, our chef team, Endalk and Mola, was amazing. We even had an eleven-component meal - madness! The tents are great, and sleeping gear also. The Simiens are so beautiful and I would never do a camping or hiking tour with anyone but Dezy behind it.

Regarding cost: Dezy calculates all inclusive prices. It's worth remembering that the fixed costs on trips in the Simiens National Park are (rightly) relatively high - e.g. your guide, your entrance fee, your scout are all charged at fixed prices regulated by the local authority. I remember when I first travelled with Dezy in 2017, I didn't realise this and thought he might be quite expensive. He's not; and moreover having the costs included makes life so much easier.
