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

Muluken was really helpful with information about the layover process while helping me create a custom tour for an overnight layover in Addis Ababa. We had some good food, watched dancing/singing from local music, and drove around the city to see some highlights. My flight arrived more than 1hr late, and he was there patiently waiting with the driver. He never asked me to hurry up with my pictures or eater faster because it's late. He still ensured that I enjoyed my trip.
