A Recent Review of this tour

Nurelegn is an exceptional guide, very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. We spent a day in Addis and organized a tailor made tour, taking in restaurant, bars and landmark suggestions from him. We chatted extensively on social, religious, political matters in the country. He's also a good negotiator and managed to get us a spot last minute in a restaurant that was booked out. Highly recommend booking a tour with him.
