Asmara, Maakel, Eritrea

Greetings, I am a photographer and tour guide living in the beautiful city Asmara, Eritrea.

I have been living in my city for more than 20 years. I love everything about my city. I have a very strong community and I love the atmosphere of the places I hangout in.

Though I studied computer engineering, I was mesmerized by the beauty of this country and its people. This might be the reason I decided to become a photographer and guide, and have tried to learn almost everything about my country and my city.

I am always in good mood, cheerful and happy no matter what happens around me. I have extreme desire to please people and to influence their life in a positive way. I have been trying to inspire people through my photography by showing them what I see and what I felt. However I decided to become a tour guide to let people experience this area through their own eyes instead of my point of view. I think it's important for you to have your own experience through visiting the places that have had a profound effect on my growth.

I look forward to planning a tour with you, and hope you will enjoy your stay in my country. Philimon.

A Recent Review of this guide

The tour was far more than we expected. We didn't realize that Asmara was famous for its art deco architecture and Philemon showed us both the outside and inside of many of the buildings. Philemon has a broad knowledge of Asmara and Eritrea. We left much more knowledgeable about Asmara and Eritrea. Would certainly recommend Philemon to anyone visiting Asmara.
