Prompt, efficient, clear online service, plus excellent communication and care for my needs .

Initial communication online, and later on the ground was excellent. Over all, the service was of a very high standard. Ethiopia is a huge and greatly varied place so expectations can be difficult to meet. However, my personal needs were always considered and I was given appropriate advice about what to bring and what to expect. Senait responded almost immediately to all my question and was very flexible with my requests as an independent traveller not part of a group.
The tour company arranged a driver (no guide), car, accommodation, internal flights, meals and local tours for me. I had a skilled driver who was punctual, courteous and informative without ever being over familiar. The itinerary followed a fairly standard tourist route with the usual - and fabulous - sites and festivals. This was a combination of my choice and their suggestions and it worked out very well. Beware of time and distances.
The standard of accommodation in Ethiopia is varied. Similarly, the standard of the local tour guides at some of the sites can be underwhelming but this is not the fault of the tour company as I decided not to have a person guide with me for the duration of the trip. As an older independent traveller I highly recommend Senait and would certainly travel with them again, especially if I had the same driver!

The review below is the personal opinion of Mr. Remi and not that of SafariBookings.
The trip was well organized, but rather expensive .

Guides and drivers were ok. Some accomodations (Debark especially) were not acceptable.

A guarantee for a safe and pleasant trip!

Those people truly know how to do their job. A trip that had felt to be rather difficult from the onset, was made easy and pleasant from the first moment that we were delivered from the airport and headed down south. Ethiopia is not an "easy" destination due to the lack of infrastructure. We are grateful to Senait Ethiopia Tours for the impeccable service. Our adventure to the south of the country was a travel experience to remember. Safety and professionalism: Highly recommended!

Incredible 11 day tour of Northern Ethiopia (group of 4 friends)

I joined a private 11 day tour of northern Ethiopia for a group of 4 people organised by a friend (2 from UK and 2 from HK). Our tour included a 9 day drive in a clean and comfortable landcruiser from Bahir Dar to Gondar to Simien Mountains to Axum to Gheralta Mountains and to Lalibela.

I appreciated the incredible personal and professional service from Taddese Atlaw (managing director) before and during the tour. Taddese responded promptly, courteously and patiently to numerous questions via email about domestic flights, payment terms, accommodation facilities, and possible tour extensions. He also kept in touch a couple of times to check if the tour was going well and was flexible to accommodate additional requests during the tour. It was nice to meet Taddese face to face on the last day at the traditional dinner and dance show before we departed Ethiopia.

Our driver (Yacob) and local guides at various destinations were friendly, experienced, helpful and were happy to share their culture, history, religion and knowledge with us including translating my Q&As with the priests and monks :)

My highlights of the tour were trekking to see Gelada monkeys at Simien mountains, trekking upwards to rock hewn churches of Abuna Yemata, Maryam and Daniel Korkor in the Tigray region, visiting Lalibela churches and my conversations with the priests and monks about their faith and experiences. The Ethiopian Orthodox church - their history, practices and rock hewn buildings were fascinating.

Suggestions for consideration: (1) Porter fees to assist in treks in Tigray region could be included in the tour package or negotiated upfront on behalf of clients. (2) Rooms without air-conditioning could have a fan for circulation and to blow mosquitoes away (if any).

Overall, I would highly recommend SET to organise your Ethiopian adventure. Their tour package was competitively priced with exceptional service.

Amazing three weeks trip trough north Ethiopia in a 4WD-Toyota and driver guide Jakob.

We (two couples) contacted Senait for a trip through Ethiopia based on a standard tour, but indicating which specific locations we preferred to visit in detail. At Addis Abeba airport we met Jakob from Senait Ethiopia Tours, our Driver Guide for the next three weeks through North Etiopia.
Jakob proved to be a perfect Host throughout these three weeks. Almost immediately he understood our personnel wishes, and adapted the daily program at our convenience. The brand new Toyota 4WD supplied by Senait was really needed and suitable for the roads in the region.
We crossed the several areas and the National Parks, and every day we were really astonished by the beautifull country, the animals and the local population with their local way of life and religion.
We are convinced that the experience and knowledge of our driver Guide Jakob was really needed to pass some of the local barriers without problems.
Although we were well prepared for this trip, this was really our most interesting and amazing journey for many years.

Professionalist from the start to the end

We made a trip in Octomber 2023 with Senaith tour around Ethiopia in 3 parts:
I. Simien mountaion trek – The trekking team was helpful, the chef was perfect and the food was delicious. The guides were very good.
II. Gondar, Tana and Bahir dar – The transportation was comfortable, the hotels were perfect, as the overall organization and guide.
III. Afar region – Erta ale and Danakil – Again comfortable transportation, delicious food, cold dirnks and wine (!) and very good guide and drivers.
The guide Gabriel is a real professionalist!
I would definitely recommend Senaith! They know the country in details, so they are flexible and can improvise in every situation to give the clients the best possible experience!
