- This trip was fantastic and highlighted how diverse Ethiopia is. We were able to experience this diversity across the country from the Qat market, stunning countryside, Addis's museums, out of place Castles in Gondar and the amazing Lalibela at Easter.
Sue Guthrie our tour guide was outstanding, her level of knowledge about the country is second to non and it is all credit to her that she received the Wanderlust Award in 2015. Injections about the country's history or it's relationship with the surrounding neighbours were so interesting and helped put things into perspective. The local tour guides were great and it was definitely interesting to have input from someone who lived in the area we were visiting.
Some of the hotels were basic but we had been told this in advance. The decision to give a few additional hours in the splendour of the Goha Hotel in Gondor was a great one.
My only minor criticism would be the length of time give to look around the 2 museums in Addis, it was too short for the amazing amount of information they contained.
All in all a trip I would highly recommend and it delivers exactly what was in the brochure and if you are lucky enough to have Sue as the leader you will have an even more amazing trip.
