Highly recommended! I did two tours with him in two days. Muluken did a great job. He was very responsive to my initial email queries, and was very prompt and flexible. He is a very pleasant young man with vast knowledge of the culture, history and politics of not only Ethiopia, but all of Africa. Hi driver is also great Highly recommended!

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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ryan, Thanks a lot for the review! I appreciate your interest to see Addis Ababa even in the late hours. I hope you are enjoying your time in Angola. Thanks again for all Ryan, With best wishes, Muluken G.

Muluken is a good guide and an asset to your organization. He was prompt, knowledgeable, flexible and informative. The tour was well worth the money spent Before even engaging with him and prior to leaving the US, he provided pertinent information regarding the possible options for tours (different amounts of time, different locations, different cities) which was most helpful in deciding how to spend my time in your lovely country. Highly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeff, Thank you very much for taking my tour service, and taking time to review it!! I really appreciate it. And, I hope to show you more of my country someday. Thanks again Jeff Best of all, Muluken G.

This was an excellent tour to take during a long layover at ADD. Muluken and his driver were very friendly and knowledgeable of the local history. I arrived with a leg injury and stayed mostly in the van as we drove around with the exception of the National Museum, pictures at the African Union Building, and coffee and dinner. Muluken was very accommodating and I still feel like my trip was complete despite my injury. I will definitely book with these two again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joseph, Thank you very much for booking the tour of Addis Ababa with me! It was a pleasure to have you here. I wish I show you more of Addis. I hope I see you some other day for more of Addis Ababa and around Wishing you recover soon, Muluken G.
Muluken was an excellent guide. He was knowledgable about any topic be it historical, cultural or economic, and engaged with our two young children to keep them interested. The tour was punctual and flexible to our needs as we were transiting through Addis. In addition Muluken helped arrange activities outside of the tour scope prior to our arrival which was a great help! Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot , Jason, for choosing me to show you around, rating and reviewing my service!! I wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR for you and your family!! Best of all, Muluken G .
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Muluken. We only had a time for a half day tour and Muluken was able to show us the highlights and inform and relay so much information, we really felt we received a wonderful in-depth experience of Addis Ababa. Muluken was extremely knowledgeable and very easy to understand. We highly recommend Muluken. Shelley and Uzi

Muluken met us promptly as agreed at Addis Ababa Airport with a large sign with our name so that he could not be missed. Our 4 hour tour with him was exceptional. He is extremely knowledgeable, pleasant and gave us a morning that was very worthwhile. We learned things about Addis and Ethiopia that we did not know and his enthusiasm has made us want to return to Ethiopia for another visit.

We had a long layover in Addis Ababa and found Muluken through the toursbylocal.com website. He gave us a great tour, taking us around the city to show us the major sites and the national museum. We went up a nearby mountain to view the city from the heights, and he took us to a local place for coffee. All in all it was a great tour and and a great way to spend a part of the day on a layover!

Muluken was a fantastic guide! Trustworthy, friendly, flexible and relaxed. He told good stories and highlighted things I would have missed had I tried to attempt the same itinerary on my own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot, Meghan, for choosing me to be your guide and for taking time for the review. Pleasure is mine too as you enjoyed your tour with me. Looking forward to showing you some other interesting places around Thanks again
Muluken was very patient waiting for me to finish with immigration at the airport for an hour. The tour took more than five hours after that. I found him very knowledgeable, friendly, and very flexible. The tour was very nice and has been customized as per my request. The most enjoyable places were the museum and the authentic Ethiopian restaurant
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Omer for taking time to leave your feedback. It was also my pleasure to show you around. Thanks again

Muluken's one-day tour of Addis Ababa really couldn't have been better. I had a 16-hr layover, and feel in that short time I was able to get a taste (literally) of the city, both the high and the low, and of the country. We went to several museums, several markets, and high above the city to Mt Entoto. Throughout the long day, Muluken was friendly not only with me but with the people we interacted with, and was also smart about security. Honestly I feel fortunate to have had Muluken as a guide. 5 stars!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ethan, It was really great to meet you and show you around. Thanks a lot for choosing me! Looking forward to meeting you again someday Wish you a great time for the rest of your trip With kind regards, Muluken G.

Muluken was a great tour guide, and his flexible, positive, informative approach made the tour memorable and a lot of fun. He and his driver allowed me to pick and choose where to stop and photograph, shoot pictures, take a walk, and this was exactly what I was looking for. I highly recommend going on a tour of the city with Muluken!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Amanda, I really thank you for your great feedback!!! I wonder what your feedback would be if your stay was longer and show you more interesting places in Addis. Ha ha. . . I thank you indeed! Hope you will have as great experience in Benin as well. Best regards, Muluken G.
