Going as part of a guided tour not only eliminates transportation logistics to the ten churches scattered about this medieval town, but also includes the benefit of a narrated trip so you can better grasp the history and significance of these monolithic destinations.

Response from Daniel M, Owner at Highland Eco Trekking Tours Ethiopia
Responded Feb 9, 2020
Selam dear Jenna, Thanks for taking your time to write us your review! My apology that the driver who take you from Lalibela -Mekele was not helpful. I have talked with him and he will not be working with us anymore. Of course its listed on the excluding section that food and dinks is not included on the 1st and 2 day. The driver tried to explain to you, i even tried to talk with you on the phone but you refused to take my call. I have explained to you what to expect during the Danakil part tour, you seemed fine with it. There is no where promised we provide a tent. Detailed itinerary of the tour is also found on viator list you purchased your tour from. Danakil Depression is a huge desert and it ofcourse require drive to reach to each destinations. And the drivers play music to show the customers their culture dance and make them try it, there is nothing behind it. Some customers likes to have beer and wine while enjoying the sunset from the salt lake, thats why we have them with us on the tour. The hike to the volcano is during the night, b/c its very hot during the day (30th) and challenging. We paid lots money for entry to the depression, the nomads taking the money seems not to care about the trash, not only them but also some tour operators. It would be very helpful if yoi coild report for the tourism commission, they must take action. Thanks again for your review, and will definitely improve our service. Best regards
