About
Danakil is one of the most geologically active regions with three tectonic plates meeting at the Afar Triple Junction. When tectonic plates move apart like at Danakil, it creates lave lakes, hot springs, geysers and fissures in the ground. Our tour is unique as it is well-arranged including "must visit" historic sites of Lalibela, the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela in Ethiopia are the most extraordinary man-made sites in sub-Saharan Africa which we deliver all with Ethiopian hospitality and touch.

Lalibela and Mekele was ok. But no one shows up in Addis both International and domestic terminal for pick up. Ene that is including the schdule. Also, when I already talked with the contact about the details of the tour, the ETT office guy asked me again "what do you want to do in Ethiopia?" Since the contact was not on duty, he told me that I have to come back next day even my flight is 7am on the next day. (This means I cannot go to the office next day.) He offered the free Addis Ababa city tour but no one shows up (again). Also, the driver for the next day hotel pick up did not show up either. If you use ETT only on Mekele or Lalibela, it will be ok. But I definitely do not recommend to use in Addis.

And also to travel to Lalibela and to visit the amazing Rock-Hewn Churches and I found this travel package which have both the destinations I wanted to travel to. Ethio Travel and Tours delivered this amazing trip perfectly.

This tour company is wonderful! This was the first time my husband and I had used a travel agent in many years and now we can’t imagine planning a trip to Ethiopia without them. Everything they planned went off without a glitch. Our pickups were always on time without any delays. It was just perfect.
