We have loved this trip in Ethiopia (itinerary: Lalibella, Afar / Dalol) as organized by Simien Eco Tours! A fantastic trip, organized by Lorenzo, and guided locally by Yirga and his team (driver, cook...).
During the prep, Lorenzo has been very attentive to all our wishes and requests, and has designed the itinerary as we wanted, despite the local constraints, + with lots of additional suggestions! Fully personalized: lodging, meals, itinerary/visits... We have been in constant contact, also during the trip itself (via Whatsapp), Lorenzo ensuring the trip was going to our satisfaction.
Locally, Yirga has been very caring, mindful of all our requests! Ultra flexible (e.g. when we wanted to go earlier to St Georges church, return to Lake Asalé etc.). And made us live unforgettable moments, e.g. in Lalibella (sunday mass), immersive experience in Hamed Ela village, nights under the stars (Lake Asalé, volcano...). All these, despite travel conditions that may pause challenges. He also loaned us a local SIM card so that we could keep in touch with our relatives home, and we've enjoyed a few local beers nicely together

Professional, experienced and they really care for their customers.
Really felt taken good care of from driving to guiding to food, everything was excellent. Loved the wildlife and scenery and Tefi my guide in the mountains could spot even the well camouflaged ibex.
Lalibela and Gonder were awesome too and the accomodation choices (Maribela Hotel/Lalibela and Chateau du Lodge/Gonder) lovely.
Enjoyed every minute of my trip! Thanks so much to Haile, my driver who made that possible and Marco for organizing it.
PS: Love the fact that the company is trying to be sustainable and helps the locals.

The professional service provided before, during and after was perfect!
My wife and I had a fantastic week in Ethiopia in 2022. Thanks to Siemen EcoTours for providing us a fantastic experience in this . We crossed a bit of the country with a great driver and guides in Lalibella (including 11 churches and experiencing a Sunday mass), Yemrehanna Kristos, Awra Amba community, Bahir Dar, Blue Nile Falls, Lake Tana, Gondar and Siemens Mountains National Park. We discovered a lot about the history, the reality of Ethiopia - country that was never colonized – and it’s heritage to the world (coffee, Rastafari, own religion … ), delicious food and friendly people !

Discovering Ethiopia as country of origin
My adoptive son (17) and I visited Ethiopia, his birthplace, in October 2022. We didn’t want to be part of a group-tour to get in touch with Ethiopia, the aim was more being on our own – only with guide and driver. Although SimienEcoTours do offer group-tours, the people at SET comprehend our special father-son-situation and therefore expectations for this trip and they offered us a perfect all-inclusive program for a reasonable price. The schedule Addis – Flight to Bahir Dar – Gondar – excursion to Simien Mountains N.P. – Gondar – Lalibela – Flight to Addis was absolutely adequate for a first visit and worked out fine. (Due to the situation in Tigray at that time, Axum wasn’t part of the program.) Judging by the plenty of our impressions of landscape, wildlife and encountering people in Ethiopia we both were totally happy with the program as well with the organization and performance by the SET-staff: Good choice and quality of hotels/lodges, good suggestion of restaurants and lunch-spots. Also to be mentioned: the wide knowledge of our tour-guide about the country and its people and culture. The jeep-ride (Toyota) was comfortable and always safe.

Amazingly thought-through & well organized program that allows to focus on exploring the country.
My positive experience started with proper assistance in planning. I communicated my expectations and SimienEco came back to me with options and suggestions prior to my trip. Once the travel started, I have to say that both the program as well as the different guides were great. As requested, the tour offered a good balance of outdoor activities (like trekking) and cultural program. The guides were all locals and very knowledgeable about the regions/places I travelled to. In the beginning, I was a little surprised that I don't "keep" the same guide/driver for the entire trip (which might be an option if you ask for it), but this also turned out to be very beneficial, since a) you have real locals as guides that - most of the time - were even born and raised in the region - and b) I met more locals that I would have met otherwise, which gives much more insight into the country.

A fascinating trip to the northern part od Ethiopia organized by SimienEcoTours
SimienEcoTours is the company that organized our safari trip in a perfect way. The programme of the journey was very impressive. The well-informed guides did their best to show us the highlights of their contry. They gave us enough time to photograph the breathtaking scenic views and told us interesting information about the world famous churches of Lalibela and others. My expectations were fulfilled and I'm looking forward to a trip to the southern part of Ethiopia as soon as it will be possible. - Of course organized by SimienEcoTours again!
Best wishes P.S.

Great insight into the culture and nature of Northern Ethiopia and excellent consultation
The connections to SimienEcoTours and the consultations before our tour were excellent. Our drivers drove responsible and safely in all situations. They cleaned up the bus every day. The local guides had good knowledge of their subjects and tranfered it very well to our group. Our guide for the entire tour was always open to our questions and he organized the daily programs in a good timing, including the contacts in the hotels. The individual choice of meals during our tour was very pleasant. We had many contacts to the culture of Northern Ethiopia and got a lot of informations about the different regions and their fascinating history. The program was very well planned and we had a great time in Ethiopia. I would highly recommend our tour operator SimienEcoTours. Our expectations were met to a high degree.
