Help Kim Jensen with their trip plan: Ethiopia
I'm looking for an adventure trip to the cultural sites. Does anyone have a recommendation for a local tour operator in Ethiopia? Does anyone know who the international agencies (Cox and Kings, G Adventures, Intrepid, Trailfinders etc) usually go to? Thanks
From the trip, Ethiopia
Cox and Kings is an excellent option, a quality vendor with an excellent reputation. A + K also offers upscale tours to Ethiopia, a bit pricey but customization would be easier. G Adventures would be a younger crowd with more moderate accommodations, definitely more adventurous. Message me if you have more questions, I am really familiar with all three vendors. :) Tour Operators use Destination Management Companies or DMC's The most reputable of those for Ethiopia is Abela Tours. Good Luck!! Ethiopia sounds exciting. Here is a link to Harold Smith-Franzen's Ethiopia Guide http://www.gogobot.com/user/harold-smith-franzen-roaminggaijin/passport/ethiopia
I would personally recommend you to ask www.fklm-tours.com
or aethiopien-urlaub.de(for German speaking). It is one of the best tour operators in Addis.
wish you good luck
