As a U.S. Citizen living in Ethiopia, I’d like to warn travelers about a local tour company called Pleasure Ethiopia Tours & Travel, owned by Nahome Bekele. If you are considering using this tour company - or any tour company for that matter - first ask for a list of itemized expenses to see what you are really being charged for. Then, if you are paying in foreign currency, check the exchange rate and make sure it matches that date of the invoice. Lastly, if you book a flight through this company, confirm it directly with the airline.
My family, visiting from abroad, and I took a tour up north through this company several months ago and I’m still dealing with the problems that we encountered. There are plenty of other tour companies around that will give you a ferenji-priced trip, all with similar itineraries but vastly different prices.
