I want to recommend a travel guide I met who is setting up a small independent tour operating business. His name is Haileab Seyoum and his business is Overland Ethiopia Tours, please find out more on http://www.overlandethiopiatours.com/. Haileab is a true professional who goes out of his way to ensure customer satisfaction. I would warmly recommend him to anyone planning to visit Ethiopia, whether it is just over a few days or for a longer duration of time. He arranges everything, speaks excellent english, good training and a real degree in tour operating, and on top of it he has a lot of experience. You will see my recommendation also on his website, under testimonials! Happy travelling!
