An Ethiopian food experience not to be missed! The food tour with our guide, Dessie was exceptional! From beginning to end, we enjoyed the incredible food we ate, Dessie's enthusiasm and knowledge and the introduction to Ethiopian culture. Highly recommended!

Enjoyed a great day-tour and wine tasting with Go Addis while visiting Addis Ababa in August. Their guides are very knowledgeable and friendly! They will also customize the tour depending on your interests. I would highly recommend Go Addis for anyone visiting Ethiopia.
