review 11 Mar 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Walking in the Simien Mountains

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared for a full on tour with few rest opportunities. Hotels are normally the best available but in some places are basic.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. our tour guide (Sue) advised us on how to deal/react to locals and prioritise certain groups/areas. There was disappointment amongst the group in the weight restriction on the mule ride - there should be some warning given in the itinerary.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Thoroughly enjoyed our first tour with the operator. The tour leader (Sue) was without doubt the best we have ever had from any tour company. Her knowledge and enthusiasm contributed to a fascinating and unforgettable tour of a beautiful country.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Visiting Lalibela.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared for a wide variety of activities: visiting cities, churches that involve a bit of a hike, hiking, etc.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We spent most of our time outside of the capital city, which was certainly good for spreading the money spent throughout the country. It would have been better if we had some free time to just visit the towns we were in, go shopping, etc (we had a little but not much).

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very good; although personally I found it a little too fast-paced. I would have preferred more downtime.
