Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Robel did an excellent job covering everything as scheduled, even managing to fit a 2-day itinerary into one day after we missed our flight. In a short amount of time, he organized everything efficiently. Thanks for making it possible to see everything we wanted in such a short timeframe. Highly recommended!

It was an exceptional experience in Ethiopia last week!
Besides from being knowledgeable, Robel is also highly organized and extremely well connected in his touring business. Due to one of us was ill overnight on day one, Robel immediately organized the doctor for our friend at the hospital first thing in the morning. Within a few hours, Robel also made a completely new itinerary of our 7 days tour with all the internal flights, hotels, drivers, vehicles and local guides, etc.

There was no flight available on our new travel date to Arba Minch. Instead, we had to go on our slow - 10 hours 350+km drive from Huwassa to Arba Minch. It was very hard, more like an endurance....riding over endless potholes in every 5 to 10 metres, all the way. Our comfortable 4x4 had soon become a bouncing trampoline! Our gratitude to Lourd, our driver, for his patience in navigating the long hours amongst potholes and "traffic jams" of goats, cows, bulls and donkeys... all the way up and down the valley on bad roads. Just because we had no flight from Addis Ababa to Arba Minch, Lourd had driven all the way from Addis Ababa on the day before in order to pick us up in Huwassa for the rest of our Omo Valley "expedition"!

Our Addis Ababa guide, Birhane was a fountain of knowledge of his country and its culture. Very well spoken in English with a pleasant personality.

The Ethiopian are largely Christian Orthodox and they are very polite, gentle and friendly people. I was pleasantly surprised how approachable the priests were at the epiphany ceremony as well as in the churches at Lalibela.

I could write much, much more, but being a well traveled person for having visited 262 countries and counting, I would say, this was a memorable and fun Omo Valley Experience. The main objectives for going to Ethiopia for me, was to see the 3.2 million years old "Lucy" in Addis Ababa, the Mursi tribe with lip plates in Omo Valley and to visit the Rock hwend church and other churches in Lalibela. I am very happy that I have done it.

Thank you, dear Robel, for your happy attitude and always with a good chuckle in your laugh, most of all, for your attentive services given with kindness.

An amazing experience with an amazing guide, Robel who looked after us from the moment we arrived until the moment we left.
He is so knowledgable and clearly adores his job. We were lucky enough to see the celebration for Epifany and were struck by the kindness of the local people in Addis. They tried to include us and explain the ceremony.
Visiting the tribes was amazing. Smiling people, so gentle, living a life of utter simplicity. I would certainly like to return to Ethiopia and would certainly use Robel.

Robel loves his country and is passionate about his job. Prompt and reliable, friendly, kind, and considerate, has shown us his amazing country and culture. We spent
a whole month in Ethiopia, camping with the wild tribes, visiting the old town of Harare, and the old monasteries on the lake of Bahir Dar, to name a few. Thank you, Robel, we lived unique experiences near you and got to know and love your country through your eyes. We will be back. Robel is the best!!

Omo Valley tour gave us a wonderful 6 days tour. It was the most unique experience I have ever had. Over the course of these days in Ethiopia we managed to visit lots of Omo Valley tribes: Ari, Hamar, Mursi, Dorze, Nyahgadom as well as the school of Konso and the adulting ceremony of Hamar tribe, a fairly rare event. The safari in Chamo lake in Ethiopia was great moment.
We had a full program and an amazing local guide who explained everything about the culture to us.
Robel is a true friend! He was the best guide we could have had. He was always beyond our expectations, kind, helpful, peaceful and willing to answer all our questions and requests! We felt very welcome from the beginning!
100% recommend 🙌🏽

Letenachen!

Good one full day experience out of Addis Ababa. The driving by the owner of the company was excellent. The guide, kibreab Tesfu, was speaking in clear English and always answered all my questions very well. Worth going, if in a group less expensive but as a solo little too expensive.

We've spend with small group of friends a full week in the Omo Valley, visiting tribes, national parks and attending local ceremonies. It's an unforgivable experience and it's totally recommended.

Everything was perfectly organised from our guide in Omo Valley Experience tours, Robel. He's the best professional I've encounter while travelling.

From transportation on a 4x4 bus, to our hotels, dinner suggestions, local guides for each tribe, everything was 5/5. Robel was always there making sure we've enjoyed the experience the fully, and he never stoped making it easier and more enjoyable for us, always doing the extra mile for us.

I'm very glad we've all spent this experience with Robel.

Robel, thank you for everything, I hope we meet again one day!
