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.
