During our entire one-week trip in Ethiopia we were taken excellent care by Lal Tours. They picked us pick up from the airport and left us there after a week of sightseeing, interesting conversations, and help in various touristic situations.
We stayed all together two nights in Addis Ababa, two in Dessie and two in Lalibela. In all of these place Lal tours found us nice restaurants and was able to change the plans according to our wishes – often we wished for more Ethiopian food and local places. Also a special thanks to our driver for safe driving and great company! Our guide Hawas was great company, and interesting conversations made us become friends during the week.
Talking about guides I noticed once again that Lonely Planet was of no use. The guide book had been ”updated” last year, but at least the information concerning hotels was totally outdated. When I can choose between guide books, I’ve noticed that Rough Guide is more useful without an exception.
