Check out Ethiopian Airlines. They provide amazing stopovers in Addis Abba which will wet your appetite to see more. It includes hotel accomadation and food in their hotel which has a great gym, and swimming pool. The staff are very proud and they are client orientated.

On our stopover, my husband and I used Muluken Girma from Merit Ethiopian Experience Tours. Using the online chat feature, Muluken was quick to respond and answer all our questions. We started our 1/2 day journey early in the morning visiting the Trinity Church, going to the markets and experiencing a great coffee journey. He loves his country and is very knowledgeable about the history. We asked a lot of questions - - poor Muluken. He went out of his way to help us buy the best coffee to bring home. Thanks Muluken for a wonderful experience. We will return.

A well thought out tour giving a good glimpse of Addis local life. The family visit especially seemed very genuine and was extremely interesting, showing living conditions and coffee, beer culture. Our guide Muluken was excellent with great local knowledge and information.

We spent an awesome day in Addis with Muluken! Me and my family think that it was the perfect way to visit Addis.
Muluken went to pick us up at the airport, and we immediately start our private tour
He’s very friendly and explained us a lot about the Ethiopian culture
We enjoyed a lot the coffee ceremony, and the market is so interesting!
Great experience that we’ll not forget :)
