The staff from Overland Ethiopia organized a tremendous excursion for us into the Ethiopian countryside that introduced us to the culture, history, lifestyles and religious life of this diverse country as well as its spectacular natural beauty. In addition to acting as organizer, guide and interpreter, the owner of the company also managed to accommodate my professional interest in agriculture. He included impromptu stops to meet farmers working their land so that I got to see and experience traditional Ethiopian farming methods as well as savoring the sights of this magnificent country.
Our trip with Overland Ethiopia was terrific. The sights are wonderful and the countryside stunningly beautiful. Overland Ethiopia Tours and its staffs made it happen easily, comfortably, safely and without stress: Undoubtedly the best way to see this incredible country.
A friend and I took a wonderful two week journey through the Omo Valley over the Christmas and New Year period in 2007 - 2008. We had a marvelous and eye-opening experience, mainly because we had a knowledgeable, courteous and helpful tourist guide who provided a most unique and fascinating travel experience. Together with a driver and a cook while we camped, our guide met all of our needs and more. We were able to meet people from many ethnic groups while also enjoying the beautiful plants and animals around us. While the journey was challenging, our professional guide made it pleasant and gave us a local insight into the different cultures. An absolutely one – of – a – kind experience led by a first – rate guide I would heartily recommend to anyone.
Dear Overland Ethiopia Staff's, TESTIMONIALS thank you for the historic route of Ethiopia in November 2007. It was a truly enjoyable and relaxing experience. As a traveler I felt in good hands and I could always rely on you to find the best means of transportation, the safest time to visit and to respond to any of my many queries. The trip turned in to a veritable cultural experience, including walks, traditional cuisine and visits at historical places. I enjoyed very much a trip on the lake and the visits of the monasteries, as well as a visit to the bustling market in Bahir Dar. I strongly recommend anyone considering a visit to any region in Ethiopia to use the services of OVERLAND ETHIOPIA TOURS! Choose this company for its professionalism, responsibility, flexibility and excellent communication skills! What Ethiopia lacks in terms of tourism infrastructure, this company knows how to compensate for!
