Mastewal (Mas for short) is knowledgeable, friendly, resourceful, organised, fun and practical. He and his team went beyond the call of duty to be of great help during our visit in Bahir Dar. Mas picked us from the airport and expertly guided us to enjoy the Blue Nile waterfalls, the boat trip on Lake Tana and the visit to monasteries. He ensured we are well taken care of to our trip to Gondar next day. No request was beyond Mas. He will deliver it with passion, big smile and Ethiopian hospitality. If you are visiting Bahir Dar, lake Tana, Tis Abay and surrounding areas, do not waste your time searching for a better tour organiser. Just call Mas!

This tour was amazing. When he found out that I was a bird lover, Mass went above and beyond to point out different species and tell me about them. He never rushed me and helped me to get the perfect photographs. He was so knowledgeable about the history and culture as well, and added in small touches that really made the trip memorable.

Our recent tour to Ethiopia was incredible. In our stay, we visit the Ancient Rock Hewn Churches of Lalibella, the Blue Nile waterfalls, the monastery of lake Tana and the spectacular view of semen mountains. Our tour guide Maste (Mastewal) has an amazing personality. He made this tour joyful. He was always available for questions and had excellent recommendations on things that we have to see in our free time. He is not like a formal tour guide rather he seemed an extra knowledgeable and professional in the field. He constantly interacted with locals and you could tell he had a great relationship with many of the local Hotel staff and tour guides we met. He entertained us every day with a big smile on his face, which absolutely made me feel like we get a great quality service. I would definitely recommend Mass Ethiopia tour to anyone and you will be extra lucky to have Maste as your tour guide. Your trip will be safe, joyful and worthy.

I live in Bahir dar. But I was invited my friends to visit my home town. So we meet Mass ( Mastewal ) and he gave us excellent service. He took us to Lake Tana monasteries and Blue Nile water falls. I appreciate him the way how he explained about monasteries and gospel history. Brilliant idea and good personality. Excellent service. Keep it up !!!

The day started with my arrival at Bahir Dar airport and then off to Tississat to have a walk and see the waterfalls of the Blue Nile. After about 5 km on pavement, the road became just gravel. So, about 30 km to enjoy an "African Massage". The 30 minute walk to the falls was great - lots of local people using the path we took. What was interesting was that we crossed the first stone bridge constructed in Ethiopia in 1626. The scenery was stunning! When I visited, I thought the falls were underwhelming as much of the water had been diverted to a hydro electric station and it was the dry season.

In the afternoon a visit to Lake Tana and 1-hour boat ride to Zege Peninsula. The objective was to see Ura Kidane-Mihret monastery which involved a short walk along a shaded trail lined with tourist knick-knacks stalls. The monastery was beautiful and the interior frescoes were stunning. Mas provided an explanation about the shape of the monastery and pointed out many of the biblical stories being told through the frescoes.

The return boat journey culminated in a sighting of Hippos enjoying the cool water.

My travel companion arrived in the afternoon on a later flight. After some confusion on the part of the airline about whether the flight was cancelled, Mas was able to confirm that it was just a delay. Mas was able to take me back to the airport to meet my friend.

Mas provided a very enjoyable day and I would recommend his service for this trip.

Day tour to Blue Nile falls, Lake Tana and monasteries. Mass is friendly and really good fun as a guide, great talker and makes you feel at ease. He is also really knowledgeable and is interested in getting to know his clients. Seems to have a good network of local guides, boat tours etc. Highly recommended.
Also, we were lucky enough to see a family of hippos on the Blue Nile River!

Mas guided us for two days in the Bahir Dar region. We did the Lake Tana day trip with him to visit the monasteries and also a hike to the Blue Nile Falls. Mas was very knowledgeable and passionate about his subject and his country. He was also a lot of fun! I would recommend him to anyone who is visiting this part of Ethiopia.

It was a great boat trip to the monasteries and walking through the beautiful streets of Bahirdar with enough explanations of places including historical ones. The sunset spots were super!
