Itinerary

This tour is planned mainly for transit passengers who have few hours to spare in Addis Ababa. During this tour, depending on how long visitors stay in Addis, visitors visit mainly the National Archaeological Museum of Addis Ababa which shelters the fossil remains of the oldest hominid - Lucy (3. 25 mil years old), and many other human and animal fossils. This museum is also a good place to introduce visitors with the history, nature, culture, religion and people of Ethiopia. Then, visitors will be taken to Merkato - the largest open air market in Africa. Here visitors will have a great experience of meeting people from the various parts of Ethiopia with their unique cultures. It is also a nice place to buy small souvenirs from different part of Ethiopia.
If there is more time to spend in Addis, visitors will visit the Holy Trinity Cathedral, and drive to Mt. Entoto (3, 200 meters above sea level) to have a panoramic view of Addis Ababa. Enjoy Addis Ababa with me!!

A Recent Review of this tour

Our guide Muluken was very prompt at arriving and very courteous and knowledgeable. As per our wish he condensed the tour to two hours but still managed to see Mt. Entoyo and museum. Great to have him as a guide and commend toursbylocals for connecting the locals.
