About
Northern Ethiopia The northern Ethiopia is also Known as the Historical Circuit, there are over two millennia’s worth of ancient treasures scattered about, from giant obelisks and hidden tombs at Aksum to a collection of castles in and around Gonder, to unique churches in Lalibela, Tigray, Lake Tana and many other places. Not to be outdone by human mastery, Mother Nature really let her creative juices flow here. The Danakil Depression, an esteemed destination among adventure travellers, features a permanent lava lake and a bright-yellow sulphuric plain, while the Simien Mountains wrinkle the land with canyons and peaks with a beauty you’ll struggle to find anywhere else in Africa.

17 Day Roadtrip..... Experience of a lifetime!
Jan 2020 • Couples
Amaan organised every detail of our trip to the highest standard - great car, driver and guides. There was also room for flexibility and they accommodated all of our last minute changes with ease. Thumbs up to our driver Daniel who always ensured the most amazing cultural experiences and our safety. Trustworthy and reliable, we highly recommend a road trip in Ethiopia with Aman.

Great custom 2 weeks North Ethiopia tour
Jan 2020
We (a group of 7 friends) ordered a custom 2 weeks North Ethiopia tour based on our own itinerary. Aman Tours has performed well, fulfilled all its obligations, done all in time and in a proper way. I can recommend this tour operator for anybody visiting Ethiopia.

Some unexpected problems did happened (for example our first car got road accident on its way to airport to pickup our group and second car got a boiling radiator while leaving Addis Ababa), but Aman Tours made every effort to overcome all problems and succeeded.

When I was going to leave Ethiopia after our tour I was denied to board my plane due to technical error of Ethiopian Airlines (my ticket was erroneously marked as refunded). Aman Tours greatly helped me in this unusual situation by booking me a hotel and assisting in my negotiations with Ethiopian Airlines. With their help I have been received new ticket free of charge and left Ethiopia by the next flight to Moscow.

P.S. My special thanks to our great guide Abrham.

best round trip ever
Jan 2020 • Family
A fantastic and unforgettable experience! I never thought it was possible to see so much authentic culture of Ethiopia as a tourist. Our tour guides Yoseph and Noah were always thrilled to show us the most beautiful parts of the country, constantly surprised us with local specialties and always made sure that we are informed about everything. Especially Yoseph has an unbelievable knowledge about every aspect of the country, you can ask him everything. It was possible to stop along the road any time to see something we were interested in, and we only stayed in the best accommondations available. I really enjoyed the whole trip and hope to be back to Ethiopia soon!

Ethiopia is worth more than one visit!
Dec 2019 • Family
Our 16 day round trip including danakil depression with aman ethiopia tours was far beyond expectation. Everything was organized perfectly. Our guide joseph and driver noah offered us so many opportunities to become familiar with the ethiopian culture and way of living. They are an awesome team. Even the longest drive from one sight to the other became enjoyable. We fell in love with the country and the friendly people and definetively need to come back.

Very Good 9 Day Northern Tour
Dec 2019
We are experienced travelers and usually don't use tour services, but given there were many things we wanted to try and accomplish, we thought this the best way. We did our research, and used the latest Brandt guide (which is a must for 1st timers) as a constant resource.

We had a very good sense of what we wanted to do/see and the route (East to West vs. common West to East). We had a rough sense of the accommodations as well. We initially only wanted Aman for transportation but eventually decided to utilise him a bit more.

Our trip included Addis, Lalibela, Axum, Gondar, Simien Mtn., Bahir Dar.

Aman was very good in working with us to included what we wanted and customising based on our needs/wants. In each city he effectively has partnerships with tour operators (who in turn have relationships with hotels and restaurants) which on the upside helps in scheduling and locking down things (for example in Bahir Dar we wanted 2 nights a an upscale lakeside resort, and on our own had been told it was booked - but Aman's local partner was able to get us the reservation), on the downside you run the risk of an uneven experience (disinterested tour guides etc.)

However, we had no issues with the majority of important things like being picked up on time (driver's were often early), being greeted and treated well, and all things being as expected.

Aman himself was exceptional at making sure that in real time logistics were running smoothly. We always got a text about the next steps, who was coming to get us, confirming times and even asking about how the trips itself was going. He was very much on top of our every move. We even had an experience where one of the restaurants was not quite working out, and he quickly got both the local agent and the restaurant manager involved within a short time to straighten it all out.

Nothing came off with a hitch. From flights, to local transport, to hotel accommodations, to payment (all were prepaid through Aman), so needless to say all done smoothly!

All in all we had a very good experience and would recommend you look into a discussion with Aman about his tours!

BTW our favorite tour guide was Brook who gave us an awesome Addis Tour especially in the Merkato! If you want a super fun romp through the Merkato...none better!

BEST TOUR COMPANY
May 2019 • Friends
Thank you Aman Ethiopia for making my journey here to Ethiopia so phenomenal and of the most memorable I’ve had. The trip was safe, no hassle, knowledgeable, and most importantly so much FUN. With just 8 days Aman was able to provide an amazing all inclusive experience and even made last minute changes so that I could also experience the Eastern part of Ethiopia. He planned everything perfectly! I experienced so much! Authentic culture, food, history, people!!! Nothing was watered down, I loved it!!!! Aman pair us with 5 star tour guides in each city who were dedicated to providing us with the BEST experience possible. Wish I could explain the depth of my satisfaction in words. I have been on many tours in many countries with many nice guides but none like Aman and his crew, they went above and beyond.
I don’t usually write reviews but I had to because Aman was WONDERFUL ❤️ I felt so comfortable and welcomed. He was extremely knowledgeable, everything we saw he explained and answered all of our questions. Again, I want to say thank you Aman and Aman Ethiopia. I am extremely grateful for this AMAZING experience! Everyone should visit this amazing country... I ❤️Ethiopia!
