We had an unforgettable tour with our guide Minex in January/February 1916.
Due to his thorough knowledge of Ethiopian history, culture and religion we have
received a deep insight in the Ethiopan people, their mentality and their needs. Minex felt responsible for our well-being all the time, was about to find out the best
hotel, the best place to stay, to organize the daily tour spontaneously according to
our wishes. He was friendly, helpful, and always in a good mood. He can easily
get into contact with his countrymen, which is of great advantage for us tourists.
We were a group of six persons in two cars. Both drivers were absolutely respon-
sible and driving us safely through the fantastic country. T h a n k y o u !!!

This year I joined my father for two week Ethiopia tour. Our Ethiopian guide was Minex. I can honestly say is one of the most proficient guides I’ve ever met. During the tour we were visiting virtually all of the Ethiopian historical sites (in the northern half of the land), but aside of that, we have also meet the wonderful people of Ethiopia and witnessed their culture.
Minex has great knowledge not only of the history and geography of his country, but also of the many Ethiopian tribes. He has good skill of cooperation with locals at every particular site.
The tour was very well organized, with really neat hotels and transport. I must say I was impressed by the tour organization. Even our unexpected bus failure was not even smallest inconvenience, as Minex organized the repair in less than 30 minutes.
I recommend the tour to everyone, especially to people interested in ancient cultures and christian liturgy as I found the practices and culture of Ethiopian Orthodox Church really impressive.
