What Our Customers Say


  • I went on the Footsteps of the Emperor tour with Ethio Tours USA last July and it was truly the experience of a lifetime. I took my girlfriend along with me and we saw all that we expected to see in Ethiopia and more! The services were top of the line, our tour guides were extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and Mr. Abera Wasihun was the best tour operator I could ask for. He was always available, very caring, and ultra accommodating. I look forward to returning with Ethio Tours USA in the future and I recommend anyone who is traveling to Ethiopia to go with this agency, they are the real deal! Thank you for a great experience Abera! Greg McNealy
  • Abera, I hope you are fine, I miss you (everybody) in general, but you in particular. I send you some photographs taken in our trip in August. I miss your land, its landscape, the green color, the brown rivers, the dry rivers, everything. It's hard to be here so far from Ethiopia, so far from the souvenirs... Marta From Spain

FAQs /We are specialized in Ethiopia tours/
What to take You will be on the move a lot, so our advice is to pack as lightly as possible. Your baggage should be clearly labeled and restricted to one soft compact suitcase, or sports bag, maximum 20 kg, plus a daypack. Luggage limits on airlines are strictly enforced and space on vehicles is limited. It is important to pack clothes for warm days and cool evenings, a warm jacket is recommended. You will have a number of early mornings, and because of altitude, the climate in Addis Ababa and in the Dorze village is not typically ‘Tropical”. On the contrary, it can get very cool in the evenings/early mornings. A set of smart casual clothes are also advisable.

If you arrive in the late afternoon, or if there is poor weather, it may not be possible for your clothes to completely dry.

Spending money Every traveler is different and therefore spending money requirements will vary. Some travelers may drink more than others while other travelers like to purchase more souvenirs than most. Please consider your own spending habits when it comes to allowing for drinks, shopping and tipping. Please also remember the following specific recommendations when planning your trip.
-Money exchange Local currency; Ethiopian Birr. Recommended Currency for exchange: it is advisable to take your spending money in Sterling, Euros, US Dollars cash (high denomination notes usually get better exchange rates). Please note that any pre=1999 or torn US Dollar bills will not be accepted in Ethiopia. Where to exchange: Your guides will advice you ATM availability: very limited. Credit card acceptance: limited Travelers cheeks: very difficult to change and are not recommended. Credit cards (VISA only) are useful for cash advances in Addis Ababa, but you must remember to bring your PIN number (be aware that many ATM machines only accept 4 Digit PINs).Advanced cost a 12 USD fee locally for transactions under $200 and a 5.5% commission for any transaction over $200. International debit cards do not generally work in Ethiopia.While ATMs are available in Addis Ababa, there are no guarantees that your credit or debit cards will actually work in Africa. Check with your bank, but you are encouraged to bring cash. Large denominations, such as $50 and $100 notes are most easily exchanged. Do not rely on credit or debit cards as your only source of money. A combination of US dollar cash, Euro and Cards are best.As currency exchange rates can fluctuate often, we ask that you refer to the following website for daily exchange rates: www.xe.com.
-Health Please note inoculations may be required for the country visited. It is your responsibility to consult with your travel doctor for up to date medical travel information well before departure. We recommend you contact your family physician, or your local travel clinic for the most up to date health information at least one month before departure. Sun It is very important that you wear sunblock, even on a cloudy day, or at high altitudes when it feels cool, as we are near the equator and the sun is very strong.
Hydration Even when days are cool please be sure to drink a minimum of 2 liters of water each day and refrain from drinking too many diuretics, as while when travelling outdoors the breeze can dehydrate you quickly as well as the heat.
Trip specific responsible travel It is suggested to bring a few items to give to locals in the community. Clothing and toiletries are very much appreciated, as are pen, pencils, notebooks, or mementos of your country to give as souvenirs. Small items such as sugar- free gum are handy to trade for the opportunity to take photos. Local dress It is recommended to cover legs, and to remove shoes and hats in churches and monasteries. Women should cover their hair with a shawl in churches/monasteries. Please note that Ethiopia is a fairly conservative country, so please dress accordingly.
Health requirements Malaria precautions should be taken before visiting the lowlands. However, vaccination is not obligatory and not necessarily taken as a major preparation while you arrange your travel document. Visa and vaccination requirements are subject to change and should be confirmed before departure.
