I considered several different tour companies in Addis before choosing Liyu. I could not be more happy with my selection. Our flight into Addis was delayed, costing us a full day of touring. Yhun was completely flexible and rearranged our entire schedule on the fly. The tour itself was amazing. We started in Merkato, which is a place Westerners do not want to go on their own. Our guide, Jimmy, arranged for a Merkato expert to join us and guide us through the largest open air market on the continent of Africa. From there we went to the National Museum which contained treasures that rival the Smithsonian. After lunch at the oldest hotel in Addis we went up to Entoto. All along the way our guide allowed us to customize our tour to whatever we wanted to see. Great tour. Great company. Highly recommend.

So impressed with my guide Yhun Enugu and his Liyu Ethiopia tour of Addis Ababa. I didn’t have much time in the city and had a few specific things I wanted to see, and Yhun provided great flexibility, expertise, and creativity in designing the perfect tour. He also was highly adaptive while on tour and introduced some additional stops given my specific interests. Highly recommend an Addis Ababa tour with him

My friend and I started looking for a tour company months before our trip. Liyu was the only one that replied quickly. They answered our questions and their response time was great. They listed our itinerary and the cost.
Yhun arrived on time and we were on our way. He was engaging and answered our questions. We went to several places and had a great time. We never felt rushed or that Yhun was ready to move on to the next stop.
Our favorite stop was the Mercado. We wandered through the stalls and it seemed most of the vendors knew Yhun. They were willing to let us take pictures and all seemed very friendly.
After an afternoon break, we went to a cultural show / restaurant. We had a great table and more wonderful Ethiopian food. It was wonderful to see the variety of people at the restaurant. Everyone was having a great time.
What I really came away with was that Ethiopians have a great sense of National Pride. It is a wonderful peaceful country with an abundance of activities and sites.

I would definitely recommend Liyu Ethiopia Tours to my friends and anyone planning to visit this magnificent country. I can't imagine having a better tour for our short stay. Next time we'll leave the city and see some of the beautiful countryside.

Thank you!! :)

I probably looked at a dozen tour operators and settled on Liyu Tours. Their price was in line with other operators, but most important their communications via email were prompt and complete making me feel comfortable that the tour would be a success.

Our guide was on time at the hotel and we started off with the Mercado because it was going to rain. For more than an hour, we walked around the market not seeing another tourist. Our guide was able to explain spices, coffee and many other items available for sale. He was even able to arrange for us to climb up on a ladder to get a good overview. He seemed to know everyone here which allowed for great photo opportunities.

We then went to Mount Entodo. It was nothing special, because of the cloud cover and rain, but a good opportunity to see the city from above. Lunch and bottled water was provided at the first hotel in town. There were plenty of choices even if Ethiopian food is not to my liking. They had silverware if eating with your hands is not for you.

We then went to a local coffee house where again we were the only tourists. It was cool to hang out with the locals and there was plenty of coffee we could purchase to take home. Just over a pound (500 grams) was $6.00 and they took credit cards.

We had an excellent tour of a church and nearby cemetery. Our guide was able to give us a private tour of the National Museum.

We had a break in the late afternoon before going to a cultural show and dinner. I won’t be in a rush to go back, but it was authentic and 80% of the people in attendance were local.

I definitely would not have wanted to do this visit without a guide. He provided great access and knew how to get places including some more hidden places in the Mercado. If I had friends visiting, I would definitely recommend him again as we got a great overview.
