During a visit of a friend in Addis, Gashaw guided us during two days. He tailored the tours to our interests and was very mindful of our needs and wellbeing. I can recommend him as a very knowledgeable and funny guide with a strong mastery of English and Western culture. He was very open in helping us understand Ethiopian culture and society and clearly knows the best authentic places to eat and drink at.

With him, we visited Piazza, Taitu hotel, Merkato, the sights along Churchill Avenue, La Gare, St George Cathedral, IES, Holy Trinity Cathedral and the Gebrekristos Desta Art museum.

I hope I can still engage his services for a future visit of the historic sites in the north of the country.

Having lived in Addis Ababa for a while now, Gashaw was still able to show me a different side of the city. Wading through the hustle and bustle of Merkato and Piazza, he shared his knowledge of the history and culture of Addis and its people. Gashaw listened to our wishes and completely personalised this tour for us. He is a knowledgeable guide and very pleasant company. Would recommend him to anyone. Thank you for the beautiful experience!

Hello Didi, Thank you for your nice words about our time exploring Merkato and Piazza. It was a pleasure for me to show you around the hidden gems of the market and indigenous part of Addis. I hope to take you to more vintage Coffee Shops in Addis when you have time. Thank you once again.

My guide Beki picked me up at my hotel on time (in fact, he was early and waited in the lobby till I was ready) and we hit the road for a wonderful walking tour.
He expertly guided me through the traffic and we even road local public transport such as the "blue donkeys" and "lada" taxis. Wonderfully knowledgeable and with a background in sociology and social entrepreneurship, he gave me little history lessons along the way and shared highlights on Ethiopian culture and politics.
We kept an easy pace and stopped for coffee and snack breaks along the way. It was my first day in the city and I wanted to get a local sim - he even took me to an Ethio Telecom office and got me connected.
Overall, these personal touches, an itinerary that gives you a snapshot of the city (especially for a new arrival) and a wonderfully hospitable and knowledgeable guide made this tour absolutely worth it!
I highly recommend it!!!
(I'm traveling as a solo female, and overall, everything felt safe!)

I was in Addis Ababa for a long flight transfer, called them last minute and was accepted for a tour right away.
My guide, Gasha, had an excellent sense of hospitality and understanding of what guests want to do and see.
He was able to explain history extremely well and in perfect English - incredibly interesting and entertaining.
Good choice for lunch and coffee break and in about 6 hours I got an ideal overview of the city.
100% recommended and will definitely ask Gasha again for another tour the next time I'm in town

This was a truly memorable tour of Addis. Moges, our guide, was very knowledgeable, interesting and kind. He took us on a combination of public transportation and taxis. He was flexible to do what we wanted. We spent hours in the fascinating market, visited museums and had the best authentic coffee in town. Highly recommended!
