Great trekking
We had a great time in the Simien Mountains. The tour was well organized and the equipment was really good. However, the main reason why enjoyed the trek so much, was our guide Messi who really put effort into making the whole adventure enjoyable for us!

On a negative side, we would only mention that the tour was not operated much more eco-friendly than the one of any other operator we met on the way despite the listing on their website (e. g. all the rubbish stays in the camps and will be burnt there) ... and despite the fact that this agency charges quite high prices in comparison to others.

Hello, thanks for the good feedback. We try to do the things in a better way, but unfortunately not everything is possible in the Simien Mountains National Park, since some things are under the administration of the national park itself and we're not free to do it how we would like to. Best, Marco

Great Tour with Awesome People
Aug. 2019 • Couples
Spent the last 4 days trekking around the Simien mountains. The guide, scout, driver, cook and his assistant were all amazing. The food was especially good and plentiful. Yes it rained (a lot) but there were always breaks in the weather which allowed for unforgettable scenery. We also ticked off every animal we were hoping to see: Geladas, Ibex and even some Ethiopian wolves.

Highly recommended.
