Z was a great guide who took us to visit a couple of churches in the Tigray area. we arrived there without a guide and arranged on site with Z to take us up to the churches. His knowledge of the area is great and we had the best time there! would definitely recommend him!!

We did a one day trip to some of the rock-hewn churches (Abune Yemanta, Maryam Korkor & Daniel Korkor) in the Tigray area and we just loved it. The area is incredibly beautiful and the hikes to get to the churches are really cool (you even have to literally climb for a little while).

Zeslasse (or Zee, as he goes by) was our guide. A guy that we met in Lalibela recommended him to us and we were lucky he did. He was a really nice guy with tons of knowledge of his area and the churches. We really enjoyed his company and he felt more like a friend than a guide.

The only little letdown was the price to visit the churches. Apparently you have to pay an entrance fee (around 10€ per person) to a guy that comes out of nowhere. I still don't understand why you have to pay just to hike, because even if you don't wanna go in the churches you have to pay the same money. And plus, if you go in the churches the priest will expect a tip from you. We didn't tip them because our guide told us that the money that we had already paid is also partially for the priests. They are very insistent about the tips, though. Just bear that in mind and do whatever you think is more ethical.

Other than that, it was one of the best days of our Ethiopian trip and I really recommend Zelasse as a guide. He was the best guide that we had on our 3-week trip around Ethiopia. You can contact him here:

we searched online to book our trip to tigray churches for three days , finally, we found sycamore Ethiopia Tours with top review and booked our trip with them. We flew from Addis to Mekele and we were welcomed by Haile -tour guide and start our trip in Mekele. During our first day we visited wukro cherkos ,Abraha we Atsibeha, and Abune Yemata . Next day, we visited mariam korkor , daniel korkor then we drove to Axum on the way we stoped at Yeha Temple . Last day we saw the ancient city of Axum . The tour was well organsed , team was perfect , and we get what we expect that was excellent three days trip . we are happy to book our next trip with them.

Thanks
Nicholas

Haile was a great guide who was knowledgable about the region and listened to my requests about what suited me best. His English is great, so it was easy to talk about Ethiopia and life in general. His driver was safe and cautious. Haile also picked out the perfect accommodations for me based on my budget and preferences. His price was a little higher than other guides I talked to, but his services were worth the price. I recommend traveling as a group in Ethiopia in general since it's the same price whether you're alone or with other people for guides wherever you go.
