          Use This Service!
          I have used the Guide to Addis service twice and both times were a great life experience. It was a wonderful experience for us. All your arrangements were up to the mark. All guides and transportation arrangements were excellent.

          Would totally recommend Guide to Addis tour
          Our tour was very well organized and our guide, Daniel, was excellent! He was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and provided us with a great first experience visiting the area. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Addis for the first time. We had plenty of time at each stop to see the sights.

          one of the hottest and most exotic environments on Earth
          The Danakil Depression, located in the northern segment of the Afar rift, is a world-class example of active rifting and the birth of a new ocean. The unique, yet only partially interpreted geothermal system of Dallol in northern Danakil is currently receiving renewed attention by researchers and visitors despite its extreme climate since the recent improvements of infrastructure.

          Fantastic.I highly recommend the addis tour
          The guide was very kind. The road to Entoto park was great. I tried the local dishes at the restaurant. It was amazing to walk inside the park, the fresh air and the good weather 🙂

          Customizable to your wishes.
          Delayed for more than an hour, probably as I booked a 9 am tour at 5 am same day. Seems operator did not notice the booking! They did not respond to my messages during this hour. I enjoyed most the views on mountain Entoto. The human history section in the national Ethiopian museum is worth visiting. Addis ababa is very culturally rich, but this operator can cater for this in half a day.

          Amazing location
          The travel agent with this tour company put together a well planned and wonderful trip. We had many stops with many tours, events, transfers and flights. Everything that the agent put together and reserved for us worked beautifully.
