Great value with amazing scenery and unforgettable experiences. We were so looked after by the team and more well fed than you would believe! So much food… also felt very safe. Would highly recommend.

Definitely our favorite thing so far in Ethiopia and it's not likely to be topped. Everyone was super professional, friendly, and had great attitudes. The whole crew was from the Simien area as well. We had good quality food from a good cook, friendly porters, great guide, and friendly owner. We would definitely recommend the 2 night tour, or just however long you think is good for you. Some people do much longer trips and it seems there's much more to explore in the park.

We booked a 4 days hiking tour in very the last moment. They were very flexible, we get pretty fair price, taylor-made meal due to my stomach problems, awesome staff especially our guide was amazing with a lot of experience and knowledge not only about Simien but the entire country.

I visited North Ethiopia and specially Simien mountains and Gonder thanks to Meles and his team. This trip was incredible.The team was so nice and professional. They allowed me to discover the hidden face of Simien mountains , dining and sharing with local peoples, providing me the best guides, showing me the best places. Special thanks to Meles, Sofi and Haile who make this dream came true!!

Melesse is the young owner of both Simien Mountains Outstanding Nature Tours and Gondar Backpackers. He's from Simien mountains himself and knows the land like the back of his hand. He was super responsive to our requests. We were in Gondar for Timkat/Ethiopian Epiphany and took a one-day trekking trip with him that was extremely well organized and enjoyable. The van was very new and in excellent condition. The driver was very careful and we were lucky to have Melesse himself as guide as we hiked to the waterfall. We ended up staying for 10 days at Gondar Backpackers which is a big, comfy house on a small hill with a superb view of the city and yet five minutes from a busy street with plenty of restaurants. Melesse is truly one of the nicest guys we met in our 2-month stay in beautiful Ethiopia. He's friendly, honest, and does everything to accommodate to his clients' travel needs. We highly recommend him!
