15 daysType: Private
Travel to Turkeys remote eastern provinces to uncover a land blessed
with welcoming people and incredible sites, very different from the rest
of the country. Visit ancient ruins at Ani and the dramatic monastery of
Sumela, as well as the picturesque town of Amasya and the giant stone
heads of Mt Nemrut. Experience local hospitality at a charming homestay
and visit the unique beehive houses at Harran. And best of all, have it
all to yourself.

I felt that the itinerary was extremely well planned. We were excellently looked after by both the Guide and the Driver. Both guys had a wealth of knowledge on the countryside, sites and flora and fauna. I particularly enjoyed the Timkat Festival and would recommend others to visit Ethiopia at this time. We saw many wonderful animals and birds throughout the whole of the stay.
I enjoyed staying at the lodges in the Simien mountains and Adegrat and the hotels at Lalibela and Bahir Dar which had superb views. I also enjoyed the restaurant on our last night which had a wide variety of Ethiopian food. There was also a fantastic dance troupe accompanied by a group playing unusual musical instruments.
