Tour was absolutely fantastic - Nurelegn arrived on time and all arrangements were perfect. He was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable - answered all our questions, spotted wildlife, provided refreshments. He knew the route well - when to stop and rest and when to push forward. The hike itself was amazing - wonderful views and a great experience - well worth the effort. Driver was safe with vehicle in good condition. Can't rate this tour, and this guide, highly enough - wish there were more stars!

Nurelegn was amazing! Arrived on time to my hotel, wowed me with history/great background on Ethiopia during the drive, and organized a fantastic tour. Highly highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is so Fun and Enjoyable Hike Ann ! thank you so Much for making it On Top of the Mountain. You are amazing Hiker and the First one to make it on the Top . 3385 Meter mount Damocha !
Two of us took this tour and thought it was great. The hike has a gentle, forested, bottom half and a tougher walk through high farm country above the forest. It would be easy to take a day walking just the forest, which had ample wildlife on the day of our walk, including bushbuck, colobus monkeys, wild boar, a troop of baboons and a great variety of birds. Nurelegn was an effective and knowledgeable guide and provided us with insights into life in Ethiopia. We had a long satisfying day in good company.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mr. Rose, We were Very luck to see all the animals in our Trekking , I could say the best I have ever seen in the forest. which some times not possible . that is the reason I want my customers not to Expect too much.
The pick-up was exactly on time, the hiking was exactly what I wanted. The guide even brought some Ethiopian food prepared by his mother! The reason for 4 stars, rather than 5, is that the guide's knowledge of the local wildlife was not good, but he knows this and says he intends to learn. He dealt with a local farmer who insisted on being an extra guide well. The local wildlife guide at the forest was very helpful, but irritated me by asking if I could find her a "sponsor" for more education.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ms. Clayton Thank you so much you are very kind. This is very important to me so I can improve myself. I have no experience on bird watching and that requires more than the love I have for birds. The tour was about trekking in the forest & because I noticed you love birds, I hired a forest guide. It was the forest official firts advice to not pay anyone approaching you. Because that avoid hassle for most travelers. I am sorry for all and I promise that next time I will be a bird expert.
