          I had the most amazing guide you can ever have down to earth and very knowledgeable! This is a must do when you come to Ethiopia if you want to experience the nightlife safely! Nothing but the most friendliest opening and welcoming environments and gives you a glimpse in an average nightlife of the Ethiopian people! The cultural dancing is amazing and gives you a glimpse of the different tribes and styles That makes Ethiopia a beautiful melting pot of culture! I can’t wait to come back to Ethiopia and do this Specific tour again. I will book this trip every time and you will wish you booked it for every night! I had one of the best guides and Ethiopia!! I wish I met him the first day!! Ethiopia is full of great people!!

          Above the call of duty
          Had an amazing time with Luel and Nebiyou. They provided amazing context to understanding the history and culture of Ethiopia. They went above the call of duty giving tips and advice for the rest of my time in Ethiopia.

          Excellent Guide & Experience Overall
          Fantastic half day tour with Luel. He really knew his history and shared information freely. He has excellent English and is really enjoyable company. My husband and our 3 kids had an amazing time on all aspects of the tour and learnt a lot. Thank you Luel!

          Best tour of Addis
          Perfect tour of Addis Ababa covering a number of different highlights in the city. The history contained in the museums and church is fascinating and well summarized by the guide Luel, and it was a unique experience walking through Merkato, the largest market in Africa. There are also excellent views and photo opps on Mount Entoto overlooking the city. I had lunch at the oldest restaurant in Addis. Luel is an exceptional guide and really went above and beyond to make the experience special. He even drove me over 40 min away to a friend’s house after the tour. I would highly recommend Addis Ethiopia tours for the best tour of Addis!

          A must use Tour Guide!!!!!!
          Luel and team was amazing !!!! We got to explore Addis Ababa and learn so much about the rich history of Ethiopia and King Selassie and the major contributions he made to the betterment of the Ethiopian people. He’s very knowledgeable, funny, professional and a great Advocate. I Will definitely utilize him for my future trips to Ethiopia 🇪🇹

          Awesome one day tour of Addis Ababa!
          Excellent time with History professor (he has a Masters) Fitsum driving the frenetic streets of Addis Ababa, seeing the sites, getting a great history and political present story of Ethiopia. Had amazing coffee and a fabulous lunch at what used to be the princess' honeymoon suite. Great day! Highly recommend.

          Incredible one day tour in Addis Ababa
          Had a private tour with Luel. Incredible guide and person. Very patient and helpful, explains everything and you can see he is genuinely worried about rendering a good service and experience. He even helped me bargain with the vendors. Best guide ever

          Amazing tour!
          Lupe was an amazing host! He was very informative. The tour is much needed especially if you’re hear for a short few days. I absolutely loved it

          Great way to spend the day and experience Addis
          My wife and I had an amazing time on our tour! Our tour guide Luel was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. We saw so many sights but didn’t feel rushed. Yonas was a fantastic driver navigating the busy streets of Addis. I HIGHLY recommend these 2 for tour.

          Excellent guide
          Fitsum was an attentive and knowledgeable guide. He has a seemingly encyclopedic knowledge of Ethiopian history and culture that he is happy to share. His passion for the country is contagious: his tour was the highlight of my trip.

          Great tour company. Very organized. Professional staff.
          I spent a week on a solo trip to Ethiopia. I picked the full day tour of Addis and went with Luel. He was a great guide. I learned a lot about the city and he kept the tour interesting and fun. I also felt safe a female, solo traveler. Luel was so good that on his recommendation, I did follow up 3 day tour of the Omo River Valley, which was also amazing. Great tours, well organized, professional staff.

          Great overview of a very big city
          So much packed into this full day tour: ethnography, churches, Mercato, entoto, coffee! Desale was a great guide and kept us on schedule, he was always ready to answer questions which was great for me as a someone who had previously lived in Ethiopia 15 years prior.
