I ended up as the only person going so got a private tour. The guide Brahanu was very knowledgeable and I have seen a lot - not only the advertised attractions, but also quite a bit of countryside, and how people really live there etc. The trio was in a comfortable air conditioned combi. We stopped for traditional lunch at a local place which did not seem to be a tourist spot, but a place where the local hang out, and the food was really great.

An easy-to-book trip eventually (though there was originally a bug in the TripAdvisor front-end but that got sorted out eventually). The company seemed reliable. Convenient pick-up from each traveller's hotel. The time-table was very fluid. They gathered all the members of the group at their office which is near the Jupiter International Hotel. And then left in a leisurely fashion. The guide was not in the car but was stationed at each site. Tiya had both the carved steles as well as a small museum. The guide also offered a glimpse into the making of the banana-swathe dish for real which was fascinating! And lunch was made... Adadi Maryam was nice but deserted (the guide was also missing) - because it was a Sunday evening. It might be recommended to find out when the service is and go around then. Driver was very competent, friendly and flexible. Great overall experience!

This was my first visit in Ethiopia. My friends recommend me ETT and I was happy with their services. Biniyam was a great guide on our day trip from Addis. We saw the UNESCO site of Tiya, stopped for beautiful scenery picture and enjoyed a coffee ceremony with locals. I recommend ETT for any trips around Ethiopia.

After sorting out a minor disconnect (make sure your driver knows exactly what trip you signed up for), we made our way South. Very interesting sites, lovely local guides and a wonderful driver made our day.

This success of this trip replies on fine weather, in particular no rain. Unfortunately our trip was badly effected by rain. The first stop at Adadi Maryam was OK weatherwise. I enjoyed this experience very much and being Sunday increased the simplicity of the place, as there were many worshippers present in this amazingly old but small, unique setting which added to the atmosphere. We were not seen as strangers and were welcomed to participate in the service. You need to be mobile on foot to get inside down steps and around. Anyone over 5 feet tall needs to be able to stoop to negotiate the many corridors cut into the body of the rock. I cracked my head a couple of times!! No wheel chair access for sure. This experience will remain with me long time, totally unique.
On to Tiya where we got soaked from downpour. Disappointing! the history and significance of the Stellae was obvious as we rushed around. Easy access to this site. The 3rd place Melka kunture was a wash out as it was closed when we arrived.
Had the impression the driver should have called ahead for appointment.

Had a superb driver and guide, set off at 9am and arrived back nicely tired at 6.30pm. Only one other person on the trip so it was a personal service. The sites we visited were amazing and the trip so cheap.
