Reviews for Simien Mountain trekking tour


review 22 Oct 2014

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

Scrambling up the rocks to the rock hewn churches of Tigray, adrenaline, amazing views and fantastic history.

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

Be prepared for long drives on dangerous roads, awesome scenery but nailbiting at times. Although the sights were amazing some of them were also busy, take a few extra days and try to get a bit more off the tourist trail, there are places to stop on the way between the major sights, would have been good to stop rather than motoring between major places.

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

Def supported local people. The environmental impact of driving a car 100s of Km is not great but only avoidable by flying: even worse. We employed lots if local guides etc so putting money directly into the communities.

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

Great trip, Ethiopia is amazing, mountain scenery is gorgeous, sights and history totally different to anything else I've seen in Africa.
