How We Work
Genuinely small groups
Most departures have a maximum group size of 12, and on average run with 6 travellers. Travelling in smaller groups means you get closer to the people and the sights and allows us to minimise our footprint while giving room for those unexpected moments.
Experienced tour leaders & local guides
Often in combination with local knowledgeable guides, our tour leaders are dedicated professionals who use their logistical expertise to not only smooth over many of the challenges of international travel but also to seek out ad hoc unexpected extras for you and your fellow travellers.
We aim to use accommodation that enhances the overall experience, such as small, boutique hotels, guesthouses and homestays and camping on the mountain
Generally all meals are provided on our tours. Where viable we always aim to eat in small independent restaurants rather than chains, enabling you to try regional specialities in the company of locals. We also regularly arrange picnic lunches, often in spectacular locations, to maximise your time seeing the sights.
No hidden extras
What you see and pay for is exactly what you get. Everything mentioned in the itinerary is included unless very clearly stated otherwise. Unlike many of our competitors, our tours are not padded out with lots of optional extras, which need to be paid for locally. We try to avoid the need to split bills and to offer a smoother and more complete inclusive service to you.
Vehicles vary by destination and you could find yourself using trains and boats as much as minibuses and 4WDs. We source all transport locally and so are always free to select the most suitable and varied transportation available.
worry free travel
Wehelp you navigate the best of this extraordinary nation, organising transport, accommodation and local guides for each region you visit. You’ll learn which of the local dishes to sample – and which may be best avoided, and get your head around the mind boggling Amharic script! These tours allow you to see so much more of the country no matter how little time you have – and ensure you do so safely, responsibly and as authentically as possible.
