Overview
Axum was the center of the marine trading power known as the Aksumite Kingdom, which predated the earliest mentions in Roman era writings. Around 356, its ruler was converted to Christianity by Frumentius. Later, under the reign of Kaleb, Axum was a quasi-ally of Byzantium against the Persian Empire. The historical record is unclear, with ancient church records the primary contemporary sources.

The experience I had while on my trip to Axum was nothing less then amazing. Gelila was very kind and professional offering the best services to accommodate my needs. They are not only very professional but they ensure you enjoy the full Ethiopian experience. Thanks to Gelila I was able to film a documentary on my experience in Axum, hopefully it makes the big screens!

I recommend Gelila Tours for a day trip around Addis Ababa. They were very responsive and detailed in showing us the city.

I went on the tour with Asgedom Tazeze and he was the most professional guide I have ever met . He showed me all the religious sites in Axum and taught me the customs and cultural norms of the people there and then we flew to Addis and toured the city and saw all the famous historical sites and museums and even went for fantastic meals that he recommended . I will tell you that Asgedom bent over backwards to do everything to assist . He went far above expectations . I had gotten a little but ill from drinking homemade beer and I think maybe my American stomach wasn’t ready for such adventures . I was flying out in the evening and Asgedom let me rest in his hotel room until I felt better and then he brought me to the airport . I am so happy that I made a true friend on this trip and you will too of you contact him when traveling to Ethiopia . He is a real gentleman and I look forward to meeting him again soon . https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g3667784-d16708890-Reviews-Gelila_Ethiopia_Tours-Axum_Tigray_Region.html
