We had a wonderful couple of weeks exploring Ethiopia last November. We discovered a beautiful country with a very interesting history. Ethiopia posesses great diversity both in terms of ethnicity and landscape. From the 3.2m old fossil of “Lucy” to the mountains, the obelisks of the Axum empire, the rock-cut churches of Lalibela, the deep religious culture, the markets, the tribal communities and the overall landscape, our trip was very interesting and always surprising.
A key point for us enjoying so much our trip was our guide Assefa, who was able to share his passion and knowledge for Ethiopia and its history. Assefa possesses a deep respect for the Ethiopian culture which is felt at all times. It is also very noticeable the respect that the local communities have towards him. Finally, Assefa has a great sense of humour.
We can only but recommend a trip guided by Assefa to this wonderful country.
Our trip to Ethiopia was amazing and Assefa was an important reason for the great memories. The in depth knowledge, flexibility, and resourcefulness all came into play. On top of all that, the caring, warmth and bright smile were always there. Ethiopia is truly amazing and you’ll understand why when you allow Asefa to guide your journey.
I have booked two trips to Lalibela and Axum with Ethiopian Odyssey. They have always been able to customise the tours according to my needs. Arrangements have been efficient, content catered to my interest and they provide really good guides. Very rewarding experiences!
I want to start by thanking Assefa (and Ethiopia Odyssey) for being one of the best guides I have ever encountered. His guidance and expertise of the wonderful country of Ethiopia were evident in the planning of our trip and showed through the way he introduced us and guided us through the beautiful sights and cultural experiences of Ethiopia! I cannot pick a favorite place, from Lalibela, to Axum, to the Omo Valley. Every place was unique to itself and rich in culture, history, and beauty. Experiencing Ethiopia with Assefa, who has such a deep love for his country, made the experience all the more special. Everything was carefully planned and organized far beyond my expectations. For me, there is no better person to travel through Ethiopia with than Assafa!
We spent two weeks with Assefa touring Lalibela, The Simien Mountains, and the Bale Mountains. ssA
We spent 2 weeks travelling with Assefa and his excellent drivers through Lalibela, The Simien Mountains and The Bale mountains.
Assefa proved to be very knowledgeable about all the birds animals and plants that we encountered and was always ready to go the extra mile in making sure that we got the very best experience possible. If you are thinking of going to Ethiopia, we would unquestionably recommend this company
