We had a great time in the Simien Mountains. The tour was well organized and the equipment was really good. However, the main reason why enjoyed the trek so much, was our guide Messi who really put effort into making the whole adventure enjoyable for us! On a negative side, we would only mention that the tour was not operated much more eco-friendly than the one of any other operator we met on the way despite the listing on their website (e. g. all the rubbish stays in the camps and will be burnt there) ... and despite the fact that this agency charges quite high prices in comparison to others.

Hello, thanks for the good feedback. We try to do the things in a better way, but unfortunately not everything is possible in the Simien Mountains National Park, since some things are under the administration of the national park itself and we're not free to do it how we would like to. Best, Marco

We had a really good time in the Simiens thanks to SimienEco Tours. Our team - guide Messi, ranger Kasaw, cook Warkaw, assistant cook Adno and driver Abraraw - really went out of their way trying to make our stay comfortable. They really spoiled us with amazing food, great company and care. When my friend fell ill (a combination of cold & altitude sickness) they really went the extra mile trying to tailor the rest of the trip to our needs. Super helpful, friendly and resourceful. I highly recommend these guys for your trip to the Simiens!

Spent the last 4 days trekking around the Simien mountains. The guide, scout, driver, cook and his assistant were all amazing. The food was especially good and plentiful. Yes it rained (a lot) but there were always breaks in the weather which allowed for unforgettable scenery. We also ticked off every animal we were hoping to see: Geladas, Ibex and even some Ethiopian wolves. Highly recommended.
