Even though I was the only person on the tour, Getachew and his friend came with a car because it was raining. That was very nice. We got to see a lot of places in the city. And for all this, their expectations from me were not that high. I gave them extra tip to make up for the use of the car. If you are in Addis, do look for Getachew. He is wonderful.

The city tour with Getachew was great! He picked us up at the hotel, and first discussed what we were hoping to see on the tour. The tour was then completely tailored to our preferences. He knew all the best coffee places and the spots to have a good overview of the big market. Generally, he was very knowledgeable on Addis and Ethiopia as a whole, and we had a wonderful afternoon with him.

Amazing day with Getachew. He picked me in the hotel on time and we decided our visit as I had already been in the museums of the city. So we went to the Holy Cathedral, helped me with some shopping and phone card and we visited the bustling ‘mercato’, the biggest open air market in Africa. It was a great and knowledgeable guide and I felt very good by his side. All time he was explaining and being very nice. Thanks Getachew for today!
