I travelled to Ethiopia in February 2013. Without a doubt it was one of the most interesting and stunningly beautiful tours I have ever been on.
Yumo Tours’ organisation was impeccable throughout. Internal flights ran like clockwork, despite the very strict security; transportation was always on time and comfortable; hotels, while modest and occasionally with slightly unreliable plumbing, were invariably in very beautiful surroundings and service and friendliness were first class. Local guides were without exception excellent, both as far as breadth of knowledge and language skills were concerned and in Lalibela, where churches can only be entered barefoot, we were even provided with a dedicated shoe man to assist in the constant removing and putting back on of our footwear. He also gave invaluable support on the uneven ground. Throughout the tour we were very impressed with the beauty, warmth and friendliness of the local people we met.
The tour itinerary provided us with an excellent overview of Ethiopia’s long and fascinating history and culture and also gave us a small but representative view of its geography and topography. We recommend this tour without hesitation.
