We had a fantastic day with Nurelegn. He is very knowledgable and gave a wonderful tour of the city's sites, but he also shared his own story and his own love for Ethiopia despite all the challenges it faces. We already recommended him to one of our friends!
Nurelegn has been the perfect guide to know Addis Ababa and its secrets. I had a tour of the city visiting both touristic and more "local" places. I strongly recommend him and suggest you to ask him as many question as you want: he will always have an answer for you!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Francesco to take your time to revive my tour! It was a great time with you hope you will be back to Ethiopia one day and see other parts of my country! I wish you many more happy travel!
Had a great day round Addis with Nurelegn. We covered all the major sites I wanted to see and Nurelegn was very knowledgeable on all sites. Nurelegn is a very personable young man and easy to talk to and I would recommend him as a guide to any friend I have coming to Ethiopia in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Anne! I would be very happy much happy to welcome your friends in Ethiopia !
Nurelegn is very knowledgeable and compassionate about his country. You can tell he read up on pretty much everything he takes you to. He is also very sensitive to your needs and makes suggestions accordingly.

The day tour was extremely well organized. The "Red Terror" museum tour was very moving. The National Museum tour to see Lucy is a must. The tour provided a great overview of Addis Ababa, and Nurelegn is very knowledgeable and provided many insights into the history and culture. He and the driver were accommodating to meet my needs, and paid close attention to my safety throughout the tour, especially walking through the public markets. Had a great lunch at "The Lucy Restaurant" adjacent to the museum.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very Much Mr. Jenson, It Is my Pleasure to be your Guide , Addis Ababa is one of the safest City in the world and Am glad you feel safe and Enjoy your trip with the atractions, the people and the food. I wish many more Africa Destination in Your Traveling Map!

I couldn't ask for a better tour, he showed us the real city, the markets, the people and made us feel safe. Explained to us a lot of things about the history, culture and brought us to try some typical food and drinks. After the tour I just wanted to spend more time in Ethiopia. Totally recommendable!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very Much Maria, It was My pleasure to meet a Traveler like you always make Jealous!
Simon GillhamMadison, WI, United States
First of all, my guide, Nure, was fantastic! Extremely knowledgeable and very willing to help me interact with other Ethiopians. Kudos to Ethiopia in general for coming to terms with its past, including the Red Terror Museum. The Holy Trinity church was worth visiting and Nure was very good interpreting the meaning of much of the items contained there. The National Museum could use a little work but interesting nonetheless. Nure and I walked through the Mercado (market) in Addis Ababa...very eye opening!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Very much Simon I so happy you Enjoyed the City tour.

Nurelegn made our short time in Ethiopia a memorable experience. A professional yet comfortable and laid back tour meant that we were able to see much of Addis and a knowledgable guide meant that we were able to learn a lot about the history of Ethiopia during our time there.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very Much Nick. I highly appreciate your time in My city. I wish you the best in life!
Quin MarshallUnited States
Addis Ababa is a vibrant, exciting city, and there is no one better to show it to you than Nurelegn! He is so knowledgeable, friendly, easygoing, and flexible, you could not ask to be in better hands. While he knows what most people want to see, if you have any particular interests, just tell him, and he'll make sure you get the experience you want. His English is great, and he is a genuine pleasure to be around. I felt very safe and happy in his care. Highly recommended!

This was a very varied and comprehensive tour . We did everything from visiting the Mercato to a tour to the hills to coffee roasting and tasting and more. Nurelegn took us to many places and did a great job in explaining the many aspects of history and culture of the area. I highly recommend taking a tour with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You very Much Mr. Browner . I wish the best time in Ethiopia for you and the Your Group.
Nurelegn is really a good guide and we have a lot of fun together. Unfortunately my remaining time slot was not big enough to cover all highlights but we can recommend the tour without any restrictions. Depending on this great experience we will probably come back and make a longer journey through this country.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Seibel , Thank You Very Much , I understand the time but I wish You had More time . I Would be Very Grateful to Guide you again more of Ethiopia . Please extend My greetings to your Wife.

Nurelegn is awesome! I can't say it enough! The city tour of addis is an explosion of so many fascinating people and smiles and welcoming faces but also the harsh realities of the poverty in addis. The people in merkato are very hard working people. I met some great people and Addis Ababa will always be a home to me. Nurelegn is a peoples person and he will make sure all your needs are met. This guy is the Michael Jordan of tours!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was Very Joyfull and your Kindness Visiting the Orphanage and the Feeding Center . Thank you so Much Brother !
The tour by Nurelegn was perfect. Friendly and very well-informed. As a solo female traveler I felt very safe and enjoyed the conversation and information. I would recommend this experience with Nurelegn to absolutely everyone. It was a pleasure to see that despite cultural differences good people are the same around the world. I look forward to coming back soon and continuing to explore more of this vibrant city and country. Thank you! Maria
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Very Much Maria! The best Part Of My Job is Meeting Disfferent People Like you from All Over the World. Thank you !
Tanya OetkenUnited States
Our city tour was excellent. Nurelegn is very kind and speaks English quite well. He was very knowledgeable about Ethiopian history. He was also good to our young children and made us feel comfortable. We drove around the city and looked at sites, walked through the Merkato, visited the National Museum, went up Entoto Mountain, and had a nice lunch. He was also able to help us negotiate prices on a few items we wanted to purchase.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs . Oetken. Thank you Very Much it has Been a Great Pleasure spending Time with such a Loving Family. Thank you so Much !
Nurelegn was great, our flight was 4 hours late but he was waiting for us. We had some great food and then saw the city as best we could in the time we had. He answered all our questions and will take you to get some fantastic coffee. It was a great way to spend my layover.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr. Hickey . I wish you to have a nice Holiday Vacations !

It was great, just a tour as expected ! Good program with reservation if needed , very good choices for restaurant and café's. It's was possible to change anything if we wanted, Nurelegn showed us so many things, even the mercato where we wouldn't go alone. The railway station is worthwhile to visit (if you speak french, the guide also he is great!), We did so much during our transit (10 ours), we will remember it !!!Thank You Nurelegn !!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am really greatfull to be chosen by the customers. It was great responsibility to take 2 parents and 2 children from the airport and back to the airport on time.

Although I have worked and travelled extensively, this was my first trip to Addis Ababa and I wanted to be sure to see the city. I can't say enough about Nure and our driver Birhan.
