Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Entoto Hill, Addis Ababa Ethiopia

We offer the city walking or car with driver/guide where you’ll meet the local and visit all the best sightseeing with coffee and lunch breaks on your way, which will lead by a tour guide, as an escort.

Start the day looking down on Addis Ababa from Entoto Mountain, the capital of Ethiopia before Addis Ababa. Here you will have panoramic views of the city with fresh air from the eucalyptus forests. Here you will visit the Entoto Maryam church and museum.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Addis Ababa Museum, Meskel Square, Addis Ababa Ethiopia

After the Entoto Hill visit, proceed down to Addis Ababa via Shiro Meda, the city’s largest market for traditional clothes and campus of Addis Ababa University to the ethnographic museum, with great displays of the many cultures of Ethiopia, housed in the former palace of Haile-Selassie.

You will then continue with a visit to the National Museum, where Ethiopia’s oldest resident, Lucy, is housed.

Before you head to Mercato, you will visit the Red Terror Museum and receive a tour in English from a survivor of the Red Terror. It was a very informative and heart-breaking account of the recent history of Ethiopia.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Addis Mercato, Kenya St Addis Ketema, Addis Ababa Ethiopia

Finish the day with shopping in Mercato, the local marketplace which is said to be Africa’s largest open-air market.

All the guides are experienced and great storytellers and, more importantly, are fully qualified and experienced in the history of art and the history of Addis Ababa. Highly recommended!
