Tesfa CTGE guides have been carefully selected and trained. They work only for community based tourism enterprises and therefore are highly dedicated, enthusiastic and understand the concept of community tourism very well. All of our guides speak English well and have several years of trekking experience. Your main guide will meet you in lalibela or at the trek starting point and trek all the way until the end of your trek. Your main guide is the only bridge between you and the hosting communities. There are also community local guides who help you pack your bags. On the donkeys, escort the donkeys to the base camp and do other similar stuff, we kindly ask you to carry donkey friendly soft bags so that the donkeys would enjoy carrying your bag!!
