Being in town for a three-day work engagement, we had no time to prepare for any weekend activity. Surprisingly, we could still book our one-day city tour with "My Guzo" on very short notice at 7.30pm the night before we went. Zerefa, our guide, was treating us like family members. He was super organized, caring, and enthusiastic. We felt how much he loves his job as a tour guide. Not less important was the fact, that his driver Tamirat, was a relaxed and safe driver. We were in wonderful hands! Ultimately, we enjoyed the day with "Ze" and Tamirat so much, that we decided to book another tour to explore the countryside. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

Out tour was just perfect! He guided us to the city with a wondeful conversation about culture, culinary, religion and so many things! He also took us to Mount Entoto, to the best coffee shop in the city, to a local restaurant, to the National Museum and he also helped us to find some local art to bring back home. It was a lovely day and we are very grateful because Ethiopia is now in our heart! <3

We had the pleasure of spending the day with Alex who showed us the sights and sounds of this city. He is friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
We joined a diverse group of four others and got a real sense of the culture as well as the city. Make this your first activity upon arrival in Ethiopia and you will be very happy at days end!

Many of the media were describing Addis Ababa to be a NOT SAFE city that's why I had planned not to visit. But when I enquired with some of the friends who worked/visit there said that is safe. So, I visited there. I experienced no hassle any where at Addis. The one day guided tour was excellent. The Travel Guide Mr. Adish was also very knowledgeable in social-cultural-religious and historical facts. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole stay at Addis.

Both me and my husband went on a guided tour with myguzo back in September. Our tour guide was Seid. We had an amazing time. He was very professional and detail oriented. He taught us all about Ethiopian culture. We couldn't believe our eyes when we got to visit the Merkato Market, it was a sight we never seen before. This one day tour will be a valuable experience even if you're are just in transit through Ethiopia for the day like we were. We got lucky and we got to experience one of their holiday celebrations with bon fires!! We would love to visit Ethiopia again and use the same tour guide. Seid was great! And he went above and beyond our expectations!!
