Testimonials

DEAR ERMIAS,

We are now safely home following another very successful visit to Ethiopia. Both my wife and I were confident that all arrangements would be well taken care of in you able hands, as during our previous visits. Our son and daughter-in-law were also very pleased and impressed at how well everything went.

The Historic tour to the north is, I think, still not developed to its full potential, and had I thought about it, we might have chosen to reverse the order by starting with Axum, as the oldest site, and then going to Lalibela and Gonder so that it would be better in keeping with the historic evolution.

The visit to the Simian Mts this time, as well as our visit to Baher Dahr on previous occasions, is well worth recommending. So once again, thank you so much for your kind efforts. Hopefully we might avail ourselves of your services for our future visits also.

Yours,
Johan Tausjo
