    Excellent tour. The monastery is full of history, the monks provide a lot of context on Ethiopia’s christian orthodox roots. Saw some baboons and was able to get close enough for a photo. Ate delicious traditional food and participated in a coffee ceremony. The Portuguese bridge and views of the gorge were beautiful. My guide Sisay was very punctual, arrived at the hotel 5 minutes before departure and wrote me to confirm/advise. He spoke english well and made great conversation.

    Abe & George were great.
    Abe was the host and was very very knowledgeable about everything. We had a good time visiting the museums, the mountain and they even brought me to eat local food. Would totally recommend

    Lupe was an amazing host! He was very informative. The tour is much needed especially if you’re hear for a short few days. I absolutely loved it

    I was a little nervous spending a day in Addis Ababa since im a solo female traveler and dont speak the local language. I'm really glad that I booked this tour because I had an unforgettable day.

    I had Mr. Z as my guide and he made me feel very safe and comfortable throughout the whole tour. He picked me up at the hotel and I visited the community bakery to see how the wheat bread was made. Unfortunately people at the kitchen where the injera demonstration is done were on break. Mr. Z explained the process at the community bakery so I still got a sense on how its done. Then we headed up to the mountain village for the coffee ceremony. Before we got there, Mr. Z got some water for me since the elevation is very high and some people may be prone to altitude sickness. He also carried my heavy bag for me up the hill from the parking lot since I was struggling. Once we got to the place, Mr. Z explained everything very thoroughly and was very knowlegeable. Next we headed to the market to see the spices, honey wine, incense and grains. Then finally we visited a restaunt and ate injera with a variety of different sauces. I visited during the holy week so everything was vegan. The food was sooooo good. Afterwards Mr. Z dropped me off at the airport where I waited for my next flight that evening. The airport is further away from the city but Mr. Z was happy to make my journey as easy as possible.

    Oh I forgot to mention Mr. Z is amazing at taking photos. I have so many good ones that I can post on social media now.

    If you are thinking about taking a tour in Addis Ababa....TAKE THIS ONE AND REQUEST MR. Z. I had the best time ever, was well taken care of and wished I stayed in Ethiopia longer.

    I visited Addis Ababa this weekend with some friends and had a full-day tour on Saturday with a guide named Zerefa. He was incredibly friendly and possessed extensive knowledge of Ethiopia's history, culture, and religion. We visited a church on the mountain, saw monkeys, and enjoyed breathtaking views. Zerefa was an excellent guide whom I highly recommend to everyone. He is a man with his heart in the right place.

    Travelled with Sisay Genzeb who came with great knowledge and an amazing lively personality. Took a 1 day solo trip to Addis Ababa on a 14 hour layover. Visited many places including Mount Entoto, Bishoftu Lake and other Rift Valley crater lakes, and of course say Lucy at the Museum. But perhaps the best thing about my trip was travelling with Sisay. It seemed like I knew him for a long time. He is passionate about Ethiopia, its history and culture (also he can take some amazing pictures!). Can't recommend this enough!

    If you’re a knowledge seeker looking to explore and understand the Ethiopian culture and heritage, look no further. At first glance, I didn’t know what to expect when I met up with Melaku however I was incredibly blown away by his knowledge on palaeontology and his easy and simple way to explain complexed aspect in this field.

    His Professional and Planning ability is second to none and I was really impressed by the fulfilment of the itinerary from the onset along with consistent communication touch points he had lined for our day trip to Debre Lebanos.

    Very knowledgeable on the Ethiopian culture and so was always constantly learning about something new about this beautiful heritage.

    Melaku definitely left us feeling wanting to explore more of the country and the culture. He’s very open to ideas, planning and suggesting insights catered to your needs. Sadly we didn’t have enough time to visit other places like Zawiye and Entoto however for sure on my next visit to Addis I will not hesitate to use his services.

    Truly an amazing guide! Looking forward to our next visit

    I feel much gratitude for such a great day in Addis Ababa with this tour. My guide Gashaw was easy to talk to and incredibly knowledgeable and the history and culture of Ethiopia. He was kind, flexible and professional. He even adapted the itinerary based on my interests and took me to some places I never would have found on my own. Thanks for a great day!

    Love this tour, thanks to the man, Haben.  He is friendly and easy to talk to. He goes above and beyond.Flexible with the itinerary, and helped me with personal errand at the end (need to find supermarket, but I'm not familiar with the area).

    He answered my too-many questions until I fully understand (i.e.Georgian vs Orthodox calendar).

    He understand that I like to have more local experience , and helped me negotiate price for local dress (for photo purpose) and took me to popular burger joint. I'm also happy that he and Ephrem (the driver) helped me eat! LOL.

    Overall, after having meal together and chat about culture and life, it feels like hang out with local friend (not with tour guide)!!
    Highly recommended.
    Thank you for the warm welcome, Haben.

    We had a fantastic day trip to Menagesha Suba Forest. It was very well planned by this travel team. The tour guides were well educated about the location and surroundings. We were impressed that they all came in time with the smiles.

    Our tour guide team with Alex Abebe on lead vocals! made our first-time visit to Ethiopia magical. Entertaining, helpful and considerate. He clearly loves his country, loves to share his knowledge and experience, and renewed our love for the continent of Africa.
