From the first communication I had with Beka, I knew he would be the best guide for us. We spent two weeks in Ethiopia with a very well planned out itinerary. When we arrived there was some political unrest, and our itinerary had to be adjusted in order to keep us safe. Beka stayed on top of the situation, and we saw everything we hoped and planned to see and we stayed safe during the unrest. We left Ethiopia having made a friend in Beka and would recommend him to anyone, in fact, we enjoyed our time so much we intend to return next year. Ethiopia is a beautiful country with so much to offer, and with Beka as your guide, you will see everything efficiently, be informed and have a great time.
