Good morning Alem
We have arrived back in Australia now and just wanted to thank you and the staff at Diversity Tours Ethiopia for your
excellent service. Our accommodation in and out Addis Ababa were of standard quality and the cars and domestic flight all went well. Our guide and the
boat trip to the islands monasteries on Lake Tana was also a very good experience. If my friends or family members wish to travel to Ethiopia I will
certainly recommend your service.
Many thanks Robert John
