We did a one day tour from Axum to Wukro, stopping at the abuna yemata church.Haile was a great guide.he kept us informed about the region and the church.i must admit, scaling the rock wall with no safety equipment is not for everyone so make sure to get the full information before attempting this trip.we were supposed to do 3 churches but time simply ran out.so I recommend talking with Haile regarding time line for this excursion.i highly recommend taking this trip with sycamore Ethiopia tours. Haile was one.of the best guides we had in ethiopia.he was friendly and very informative.

Review of: Axum City Tour
Fantastic tour guide! Spent a day with Haile - he picked us up at the airport with his driver and vehicle - and we toured Aksum’s main sites. He is personable, knowledgeable, and speaks English very well. We learned so much about the history and religion and archeology in the area, and he was patient and accommodating to all of our needs. We had the unique opportunity to speak to the priests at the churches and Haile translated for us! We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable and friendly guide and/or tour agency - whether in Aksum or anywhere else in Ethiopia. He’s very responsive via WhatsApp which I found was not so much the case with other guides we’ve been in contact with. Wish I would have known that he arranges tours in other areas, as we probably would have booked more with him.

Z was a great guide who took us to visit a couple of churches in the Tigray area. we arrived there without a guide and arranged on site with Z to take us up to the churches. His knowledge of the area is great and we had the best time there! would definitely recommend him!! WhatsApp number (+251919074400) & email: zeslassemerha@gmail.com

We did a one day trip to some of the rock-hewn churches (Abune Yemanta, Maryam Korkor & Daniel Korkor) in the Tigray area and we just loved it. The area is incredibly beautiful and the hikes to get to the churches are really cool (you even have to literally climb for a little while). Zeslasse (or Zee, as he goes by) was our guide. A guy that we met in Lalibela recommended him to us and we were lucky he did. He was a really nice guy with tons of knowledge of his area and the churches. We really enjoyed his company and he felt more like a friend than a guide. The only little letdown was the price to visit the churches. Apparently you have to pay an entrance fee (around 10€ per person) to a guy that comes out of nowhere. I still don't understand why you have to pay just to hike, because even if you don't wanna go in the churches you have to pay the same money. And plus, if you go in the churches the priest will expect a tip from you. We didn't tip them because our guide told us that the money that we had already paid is also partially for the priests. They are very insistent about the tips, though. Just bear that in mind and do whatever you think is more ethical. Other than that, it was one of the best days of our Ethiopian trip and I really recommend Zelasse as a guide. He was the best guide that we had on our 3-week trip around Ethiopia. You can contact him here: e-mail: zeslassemerha@gmail.com whatsapp: +251919074400
