It’s was my first time back to Somaliland after 13 years. Last time I visited Somaliland I didn’t explore true essence of this wonderful country. I knew that coming back I needed to make sure my experience was memorable. After much research in looking for a trusted travel agency, I came across ‘Somaliland Travel Agency’. I visited their office and I came across two young men who work for this travel agency. Their names are Mohamed and Abdullahi. I explained what I wanted to achieve from my visit and they said I came to the right place! They planned my trip by breaking into 2 parts. So Far I have completed the first part of my travel. I have visited: 1. Abarso 2. Arabsiyo 3. Gabiley 4. Laws Geel 5. dhagax guure 6. Berbera 7. Sheikh My experience after visiting these places was beyond my wildest dreams. Who would ever thought Somaliland would hold such gems! I was amazed by witnessing the Laas Geel kingdom which holds clear painting that are 5 to 10,000 years old! The Sheikh Mountain presented the most breath-taking views, where I experienced tasting the sweetest honey. Berbera endless empty, clean and tropical beaches that relaxed my mind, body and soul. Dhagax Gurre has the most majestic views of rocks that you wouldn’t believe are still standing till this day. Plus many more beautiful sites, the list could go on! The local people of Somaliland are so welcoming, especially when accompanied with my travel agents. The travel agents have built a strong trusted relationships with the locals. The local only had great words for the travel agency and were happy that I was experiencing Somaliland under their guidance. This all would have not been possible without my travel agents Mohamed and Abdullahi. My time with them has been memorable and I can say I’ve gained a friendship with them. They articulated themselves so well and held impressive knowledge about Somaliland. Most importantly I felt safe around them considering I was alone. For anyone who is travelling to Somaliland, please!do not leave the country without visiting Somaliland Travel Agency. Your vision of the country will change and the true beauty of this wonderful nation will leave you feeling amazed. I want to thank Mohamed and Abdullahi for making this happen and I can’t wait to explore the second part of my trip inshallah. Somaliland Travel Agency are awesome!!! :)

Everywhere we come we try to build a good relationships with the locals. Thanks for your trust in us and your nice in depth review. You're always welcome in our office.

The Somaliland Travel Agency is highly recommended. Through the agency we have booked an individually arranged day tour in Hargeisa, capital city of Somaliland. Everything went perfectly - and our guide Awale was brilliant. The experience: In February 2020, we, two friends from Berlin and Hamburg (Germany), traveled through Djibouti for two weeks. From Djibouti we spontaneously made a one-day trip by plane to Hargeisa: in the morning by plane from Djibouti City to Hargeisa, four hours sightseeing in Hargeisa, in the afternoon flight back to Djibouti City. Booking and communication: We booked the Hargeisa sightseeing tour two days in advance from Djibouti through the Somaliland Travel Agency. Communication via email was quick and easy. Managing Director Abdullahi provided us with friendly, competent and good English advice via e-mail - and also provided excellent support with the entry formalities to Somaliland. Guide: Guide Awale picked us up at Hargeisa airport on time and showed us the highlights of Hargeisa. Awale is a marvelous, outstanding guide - perfect English, very polite, highly informative and absolutely customer-oriented. We experienced a lot in the short time and learned a lot from Awale - and we were able to discuss the history as well as the cultural, political and economic present of Somaliland with him. Awale was more than a guide - for us he was like a good friend for a day and at the same time a fascinating ambassador for Somaliland. Thank you very much, Awale! Hargeisa sightseeing tour: Hargeisa is one of the friendliest, most colorful, and at the same time dustiest big cities I've ever seen. Visiting Hargeisa is a unique, beautiful experience. The sightseeing tour that Somaliland Travel Agency arranged for us included all highlights such as the Civil War Memorial, the Central Market, the Money Market and the Saryan Museum. An off-road vehicle was available for the sightseeing tour, which Awale drove carefully through the lively city. The culinary highlight was a delicious lunch at the Fish & Steak House before Awale brought us back to the airport.

Somaliland was perfect! I told them the days I had and what I wanted to do and they arranged everything for me. Accommodation, food, transport and guides were perfect. I took over toys and clothing and we were able to hand them out along the way. Laas Geel was something I’ve wanted to see for awhile as the history nerd inside of me and they made this trip a memorable one. I would highly recommend their professional service, contact and enjoyable time.

I booked a short two night/one full day touring quickie. Somaliland TA stood out because they got back to my queries quickly, and in perfect English which helped this American. Stayed in nice hotel, and all was on time in great vehicles, with great driver. No worries. Went to Las Geel rock drawings, a rough transit. They made it easy.

very professional and knowledgeable tour guide and superbe driver; we did the two day Lac Abbé - Lac Assal tour in Djibouti in October 2019 on very short notice and Somalilandtravel set it all up for us in a matter of days. Thumbs up for their customer service! The tour itself I can also highly recommend, especially in October when there are few tourists around.
