Great bespoke tour. I arranged a seven day private tour through Adulis travel in November 2019. They were responsive and offered a good itinerary with feedback about several options. I was provided with a driver, guide and a 4WD. Robel and Berhe were friendly, punctual, reliable and well-informed. They changed my itinerary to accommodate any whims that I had and ensured that key objectives were met. I thoroughly recommend the company.

Very, very good trip. Overall it was fun and everything according to the itinerary. The tour leader is very competent and knowledgeable about the whole areas or city covered. We learned that there are other route lines to cover the whole of Eritrea, so next time we will try the other lines. Thank you so much for the most exciting tour we had.
