If you happen to be in Addis Ababa for a long layover, do consider taking this tour. Our guide and driver were fantastic. The highlights include going to a traditional coffee shop and sampling the local flavors, and seeing the 3.2 million year old bones of Lucy one of humanities oldest skeletons. The walk through the market was an experience, but our guide was always close by to make sure we didn't lose our way in the narrow alleys or crowds. The sign at the airport says that Addis is The World's Best Tourist Destination yet I'm not sure visiting this city is worth making a special trip to Ethiopia, but if you are here for some other reason, this tour is a great way to see and experience the sites, sounds, smell, and tastes of the city.

I had a 16 hour lay-over in Addis Ababa on my way to South Africa, so I booked a day tour. It was the best way to spend this lay-over! The guide met me at the airport. He then took me to the hotel that the airline gave me for the lay-over to help me check in. Then we began on our day tour. I was able to decide where we went, and he was extremely informative. I could not recommend this tour or company enough! Absolutely loved it!
