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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Maria and Michael are a lovely Couple to spend time with! May God bless you with a great life! Nure

Great Tour Guide! Very informative. We had limited time in Addis Ababa but he made a compact tour of important sites of his home city. Met us early morning at the airport, took us to our hotel to rest for a few hours then later picked us up to start the afternoon tour.
A group of 5 of us had the most amazing 18 hour stopover in Addis Ababa, and this was all due to Nuri and his amazing knowledge of the city and fantastic tour. Everything went very smoothly, from picking us up at the transit hotel and going via there to pick up our stuff before dropping us at the airport. Excellent insight into local sites, amazing driver amongst all the craziness, and very friendly and helpful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Connie, thank you very much! Choosing tours by locals for your tour in Addis Ababa and book my tour! Wish you more fun traveling arround the world!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very Much Anand!

I have been on countless tours throughout the world and Nurelegn was the best tour guide I have met 1. He worked around our schedule trying to fit everything in 2. He did not rush us and let us take our time by the places we had more interest in 3. Once we met and he got more of an idea of what our interest where he modified the tour accordingly 4. With his vast knowledge of the area he was able to give us a feel of a local not an outsider experience 5. Most important he made us feel safe
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Eli it was a school day . I saw a world that I will not see by myself in my own city . it was My Pleasure to meeting you and your wife you!

Great guide and tour! Thanks, Nurelegn, for making my stay in Ethiopia so worthwhile and interesting.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Very Much Barry! I highly appreciate You take Your time to Explore something new and Different. Thank you !
Absolutely recommend this! It was great, thank you so much Nurelegn! We enjoyed to have this way to get to know Addis Ababa. The market was impressive and we wouldn't have go there with out guide. It was a good decision to use the time like this during the stay over.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Vielen Dank, Franziska , Dominique and title Noha for taking the advantages of layover to see my City. I highly appreciate It. please don't forget to be my Guide if I ever be in Germany . Thank you very much !
Nurelegn was a fantastic and extremely knowledgable and flexible guide. I had a 16hrs layover at ADD Airport. We was patiently waiting for me at ADD (the Immigration procedure took much longer than expected). I had a great time in Addis, enjoying Ethiopian coffee and traditional Food. Addis has a lot to offer, I found the Mercato, Entoto Hill, the Red Terror Martyrs Museum and the Holy Trinity Cathedral extremely interesting. I had a wonderful time with Nurelegn - fully recommended! Paul, Germany
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very Much Paul ! I Enjoyed my time with you I wish you many many Happy Travels in the world!

Nurelegn's tour is absolutely fantastic and I recommend it to anyone who would like to vist Addis Ababa. He waited patiently for me at the airport even though my flight was delayed for two hours and from the start he explained all the history, cultural and political aspects of Ehtiopia in great detail. He made sure I got to see everything I am interested in and even went shopping with me for a traditional dress. I loved this tour so much that I will do it again! Thanks Nure, you are a fantastic guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My self Had a great time with Mariné. Very intelligent lady loved the people and she know how to support and benefit the local people from Tourism. Thank you Very Much Mariné ! you are always welcome !
A very interesting full-day tour of famous sites in / around Addis, including the Ethiopian National Museum and Africa's largest outdoor market. The guide was very knowledgeable and later also helpful in locating an ATM and pharmacy in addition to driving me around to all the sights. I highly recommend this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mr. Graf , it was a very interesting day and the longest time in the National Museum I ever spent in the Museum! I really appreciate your Interest in In Ethiopia and Somalia . Please let me Know when you Decide to come here for your Road Trip I am more than Happy to help and share info . Thank you very Much !!!
Nurelegn is AWESOME! I really enjoyed my time with him; highly recommended even for an "individualist traveler" like myself. Besides simply being a kind, fun, and intelligent person, he is extremely knowledgeable in historical, economic, political, social/cultural, and anthropological matters, not just relating to Ethiopia, but to Africa overall and beyond. I'm well educated myself, and well traveled, but I gained so many new insights and learned so much. Also: Nure's English is perfect. It was fantastic.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am Very thankful the opportunity to Meet you. you are very kind , open and relaxed towards every one . Even with the kids . I hope to meet you again. Thank you very much!!
Nurelegn was a great guide! He had a lot of knowledge and was willing to share it. He tailored the time to my wishes, and took me for great local food and coffee. With only 14hours in Addis, I am definitely glad I had Nuri's help! The Mercato was particularly great, and Nuri was friendly with all the locals and went at my pace wonderfully. Loved it!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Rebecca. I hope you are having a nice Holly day !
John ZaiserUnited States
Nurelegn was a fantastic tour guide! We saw so much in our layover that we could never see by ourselves. Addis is a great city to explore, but it was Nurelegn's obvious knowledge and love for his country and history that made all the difference. From the market, to museums, to his patience with our shopping, he made it a very enjoyable trip. He took us out for some real Ethiopian food - not in a tourist trap. He helped me buy some of the best roasted coffee beans to bring home. Best value for the money!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Very Much ! Mr Zaiser ; please Extend My Gratitude to you wife too.
Scott CorenUnited States
Nurelegn was an exceptional guide. I travelled with my wife who has never been to Africa before and was apprehensive about going to so many new surroundings. Nurelegn made her feel very comfortable and secure and looked after her very well. He was very accommodating and explained each activity, bringing us to the ones we wanted to see and skipping the sites that we were less enthused about to make sure the tour was catered to our interests. He also brought us to a great dinner and show. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Very Much Mr. Coren ! I Wish you the Best for the Rest of Your Trip. Enjoy !
Nurelegn was an excellent guide - knowledgable and fun and open to shaping the tour to make it the best experience possible. I was amazed at how much I got to see and do in one day. It made a 15 hour layover an absolute pleasure. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Very Much Ms. Oke , I Hope to see You again in Ethiopia !
Nurelegan was a fantastic guide for our layover in Addis Ababa. We had a great time exploring the highlights of the city, and Nurelegn was well educated and informed about the sites we visited. We were particularly pleased at how accommodating he was to our dietary needs (strict vegetarians) and general interests and preferences for the day. As it was our first trip to Africa we felt safe and cared for. Some highlights included visiting the Red Terror Museum, the marketo and trying local coffee.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mrs Lafreniere; I really appreciate you Enjoy Your day In Addis and feel safe. I am Proud Addis Is one of the safest cities In the world and Growing so Fast. As You have Traveled a Lot I learn a lot from you and it will Improve me a lot. Hope to see You again! Extend My Gratitude for your Husband!
Nicola JamesUnited States
Enjoyed my tour w/ Nurelegn SO MUCH. He was early picking me up, did everything on the tour that we had agreed to and spent more than the allotted time taking me around. He even offered suggestions for the hours that remained after I was dropped off but I was too tired to do anything more! High recommendation for Nurelegn as a guide- so knowledgeable & friendly and speaks English very well. This man knows his history and all the facts to help you understand Ethiopia and its place in the world.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mrs James! Every day Is different For me and A New school day. I Learn A lot From My Customers. Thank you Very Much For your Time Wish You the Best with your Family !
Nurelegn is a very good tour guide. First, when I arrived at the airport, my luggage didn't come with me and I dealed with the Problem with Ethiopian Airlines for three hours. I couldn't contact Nurelegn and tell him to wait, but he still waited for me for a long time. Next, he took me to see many attractions in Addis Ababa and enjoyed the traditional Ethiopian food. And he explained to me many things about Ethiopia clearly. We finished the tour by watching Ethiopian dance in a very astonishing place.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a nice Day to spend with Pohan , who has a lot of interests and Hobie's. of-course Airlines ! specially During Holidays and Bad weather are Tribally so bad and Expected.
Kelly SitesUnited States
Nurelegn was a wonderful tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and accommodating. I would recommend his tour to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I thank you Ms. Sites it was a nice day having you Here in Addis. I wish you the best.
Nurelegn has been the best guide we have never had. He is a serious and helpful guy who introduced us in the real ethiopian life, walking with us around Addis Ababa. We joined a special day with him and we found ToursbyLocal a serious and very organized association. We reccomend it for your day in Addis Ababa because they are so kind during our stop flight in 1 day there.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ms. Paoletti, you Have been the best Guest Here also , I am sure you Enjoyed the Rest of your Trip too. Extend My best to all!!!
Not knowing what to expect on a 17 hour layover in Addis Ababa, I was totally amazed at how Nurelegn became so close (as friends) to my wife and I. He went above and beyond to attentively take care of us from 8 in the morning till 10 at night...WE ended the day at a popular night club with traditional meals and entertainment.. leaving Ethiopia with the WOW factor I hadn't expected. Truly a fine gentlemen ,great knowledge and accommodating. I would recommend totally for a few hours or a few days ... Doug

John-Erik EmmetsbergerUnited States
Nurelegen is a great guide. I had some changes with my flight as well as a delay in getting my transit visa; even with those delays considered, Nurelegn was very happy in greeting me and put together a great tour that took me from the airport that morning back to the airport at night. We saw some great sights in Addis and the trip was very comfortable and indeed memorable -- I will now forever dream of Ethiopian coffee! The service was incredibly friendly and customized to my needs - a perfect stopover!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John-Erik Thank you for your very kind words. I am really happy you had the perfect day as you want it to be. I really enjoyed the day my self and you were very open and relaxed. thank you so much!
