We were 3 persons and we travelled around Ethiopia from 3 until 21 Feb 2016 (ADD, Bahar Dar, Gondar, trek Simien M.N.P, Axum, Lalibela, Omo valley).
We wanted to do a short trekking in Simien Mountain National Park and camping for one night. Also we wanted the transportation from Gondar to S.M.N.P and from S.M.N.P to Axum.
We communicated with many travel agencies and read the reports of travelers. We chose to trust Dezy and his travel agency and he did not disappoint us. He offered the best price but our gratitude is for more.
We chose to travel with Dezy (Desalgn Gebrie).
He took us from our hotel in Gondar with minivan to Simien Mountain National Park. We were only six (6) persons hiking. We had a short and easy hike (5-6 hours) from Buyit Ras to Sankaber camp (3240m). We took in beautiful views of the landscape and we saw a lot of gelada baboons. From Sankaber we began hiking following the ridge and look out over the foothills 800m down. From the ridge we descended down into the valley and were able to view the Jinbar River plunging into the Geech Abyss. After some time at the waterfall, Dezy picked us up and drove to Axum by private car.
Dezy organized and took care of everything: transportation from hotel in Gondar, choice of the best assistants (trek guide, scout, cook), entrance fees in N.P, the purchase of materials for the evening meal and breakfast, the tents, sleeping bags, mattresses, the blankets, transport to Axum.
All of the above are very important for someone who has spent money on an experience and feels happy because this experience proved to be excellent!
We also appreciate a lot Dezy because when we faced a problem in Michael Hotel in Gondar he was there to solve it. We had booked and paid there with jovago.com but the employee in Michael Hotel demanded to be paid again because the hotel hadn’t received the payment from Jovago.
(Note: This was a problem only with Michael hotel and not with other hotels we had booked and paid around Ethiopia through Jovago.com. Jovago has already returned us the amount we had been charged for Michael hotel, so we have no complaints, we are very happy with the choice of Jovago!!)
This made us very angry and almost ruined our day, but at that moment Dezy appeared and helped us to resolve the situation. After that he gave us a ride to the Fasiladas Palace and in the evening he came again and took us for dinner at the best restaurant of Gondar ‘’four sisters’’.
We want to thank Dezy for the excellent hike organization at the mountain, the best choice of assistants, the help of the hotel in Gondar and the excellent, careful driving in difficult roads to Axum at night.
We recommend Dezy unreservedly. We hope to help you!!!
