    The tour was complete and it followed strictly what was agreed upon when booking. all the drivers are guides who could communicate in English and be always punctual. They were also flexible enough to meet last-minute demands or requests from the group. The tour allowed us to get a good idea of the country's historical northern region. I'd highly recommend exploring the country with Imagine Ethiopia Tours for ease, comfort, and safety.
