In July of 2011, my 85-year old mom and I traveled to Ethiopia. She won’t go anywhere if she has to go on a tour, so we are always looking for independent travel options. On a guidebook’s recommendation, I contacted Abeba Tours prior to our arrival and was immediately pleased with their professional, no pressure, no hustle approach. We spent over two weeks traveling in the Historic North during the “rainy season” (the weather was terrific the whole time!), with an informed, personal driver who saw after our every need. The price was fair and competitive with other agencies. I highly encourage anyone to go to Ethiopia, don’t let the words “rainy season” deter you, and use the excellent Abeba Tours for your travel needs.
