Date: Mar 15/20

This was our second tour with Nurelegn and his driver Mohammed and we really enjoyed Adadi Mariam and Melka Kunture. Sadly Tiya was closed due to renovation works, but that was not the fault of our guides. We had a great day with them and we will surely book them again if we come back to Addis one day.

Our tour through Addis Abeba was perfectly organized and our guide Nurelegn really did anything possible to make it a memorable day. Especially the big market (Merkato) and the very detailed tour of the National Museum were impressive. In the end the tour took 10 hours instead of 8 hours as planned, but that was no problem for Nure and his driver Mohammed as long as we were happy. One of the best city tours we ever had!

Addis is a fascinating but chaotic city. For the time-short visitor a private guide/tour as provided by Nurelegn is, in my view, essential. Worth every penny. Do visit the Market - have lunch there - and the National Museum. He understood my interests and requirements and largely fulfilled them. Excellent English.

It was the best guide I have ever in my life. He came at time despite the traffic jams. Extremely caring, loves his job, which he does very professionally. Responded to all my travel wishes ( I have got just 8 free hours).Lift me to the airport at night. An unforgettable tour!!

Great experience with Nurelegn, he showed me the authentic Addis Ababa, from the hustle & bustle at the market, to the tranquil hillsides, he is truly a knowledgeable guide that can make you feel at home :)

Nurelegn was a fantastic guide, answering all my questions and providing excellent commentary. He also assisted in a lost luggage incident with Emirates which took a couple of hours during the tour to resolve, then gave me extra time to make sure I got to see everything I was interested in, which I was very grateful for! Thanks again Nurelegn!

Nuri was a superb guide. Flexible, knowlegeable and kind. He greatly improved our entire day (even after the tour had finished) with his suggestions and advice. He took us to all the places we asked and was happy to include all of our requests. He was also very open when speaking about Ethiopia and Addis Ababa, which provided a unique view to us of the city, the country and its history. We wish we could have had Nuri take us around the whole country! We highly recommend him to other travellers!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Robert it is my pleasure to have you in my city and show you arround have great travel adventure.

The tour was fantastic. My wife and I had a 9 hour layover in Addis Ababa, so we decided to take a tour outside of the terminal rather than hang out in a terrible airport. Our guide met us, and drove us all over Addis, making the most of the time we had. It was great. He was very willing to be flexible and made sure we saw what we wanted to see. We can't recommend the tour enough.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joseph! Thank you very much hope you you will more time again to travail in Ethiopia!

Nurelegn was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable and flexible. I picked Nurelegn as I was filming a small documentary report on Addis Addeba and Nurelegn responded with a proposition that suited me the most. He was flexible and took care of everything. Nurelegn helped me get the shots I needed and the tour was adapted to my specific needs and requests. I highly recommend Nurelegn as your tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Matias I have got a very good experiance working with you. It was great thank you very much for evryrhing I hope to see your documentary soon!

Wonderful guide, really wonderful, but he was more than an hour late picking me up at the airport. His calendar got crossed, so it probably will not happen to others, but it is a pretty rough airport.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Philip! & I appologise ! I know I provide you the best city tour in Addis Ababa! It was unfortunate I was very late to pick you up ! The day befor the tour I was exchanging message with another customer to be picked up from a hotel .I was considering your tour as hers . I was wainting for some who is not coming and the real person is at the airport! I can't say that I am perfect & I don't do mistakes but I do my best to meet my customers expecations at the best level I do!

OMG - Nurelegn (and our driver Demis) were amazing. I got to see so much of Addis Ababa and it was a fun adventure. I always felt my safe and secure even deep in the wild Marketo. Nurelegn is such a fountain of information and I learned so much and had such a great time. I was so impressed with he combination of chaos and cooperation while driving all over Addis Ababa. I would highly recommend your company and my guide. I was also impressed with the user experience while booking my tour. Top notch!

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 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

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 !

Super fantastic guide. Quite knowledgeable guide. Very accommodating as we had problems at the airport but we were able to communicate with him via sms and he fetched us later than originally planned. Our guide really went out of his way to give us the best experience and exposure to the local communities. A great driver negotiating all the pothole.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Nashreen! Enjoy your time in Ethiopia!

Nure quickly became a friendly and helpful companion, and continuous source of interesting information about the city, the country, the people and the areas that he thought we would enjoy visiting. He was very professional and spoke excellent English, made all the necessary arrangements in advance of our visit and prepared a comprehensive plan that included lunch near the Lucy Museum and ended with dinner in a suitable restaurant with local patrons and included ethnic music and dancing.Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karin, Thank you very much it was my pleasure to have you in my city.

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!

Highly recommend Nurelegn. Excellent driver; knows roads well; speaks English very well. Outstanding knowledge of sites, related history, culture. Tours of Adadi Mariam church, Melka Kuntare excavations , and Tiya Stelae monoliths were great. However, most memorable parts of the tour were interactions with Nurelegn and other locals. On way to Adadi Mariam we purchased some food. At lunchtime, we were invited to eat in the home of a local family. We shared our food with them and got to know them.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Very Much Mr. Ashton it is My Honor to meet you and learn a lot . I wish many many happy Moments! Thank you!
