Fantastic day trip to Hargeisa.
The Somaliland Travel Agency is highly recommended. Through the agency we have booked an individually arranged day tour in Hargeisa, capital city of Somaliland. Everything went perfectly – and our guide Awale was brilliant.
The experience: In February 2020, we, two friends from Berlin and Hamburg (Germany), traveled through Djibouti for two weeks. From Djibouti we spontaneously made a one-day trip by plane to Hargeisa: in the morning by plane from Djibouti City to Hargeisa, four hours sightseeing in Hargeisa, in the afternoon flight back to Djibouti City.
Booking and communication: We booked the Hargeisa sightseeing tour two days in advance from Djibouti through the Somaliland Travel Agency. Communication via email was quick and easy. Managing Director Abdullahi provided us with friendly, competent and good English advice via e-mail – and also provided excellent support with the entry formalities to Somaliland.
Guide: Guide Awale picked us up at Hargeisa airport on time and showed us the highlights of Hargeisa. Awale is a marvelous, outstanding guide – perfect English, very polite, highly informative and absolutely customer-oriented. We experienced a lot in the short time and learned a lot from Awale – and we were able to discuss the history as well as the cultural, political and economic present of Somaliland with him. Awale was more than a guide – for us he was like a good friend for a day and at the same time a fascinating ambassador for Somaliland. Thank you very much, Awale!
Hargeisa sightseeing tour: Hargeisa is one of the friendliest, most colorful, and at the same time dustiest big cities I’ve ever seen. Visiting Hargeisa is a unique, beautiful experience. The sightseeing tour that Somaliland Travel Agency arranged for us included all highlights such as the Civil War Memorial, the Central Market, the Money Market and the Saryan Museum. An off-road vehicle was available for the sightseeing tour, which Awale drove carefully through the lively city. The culinary highlight was a delicious lunch at the Fish & Steak House before Awale brought us back to the airport.
