About
Many people assume Axum is all about history and nothing more. A city that was the capital of one of the world's mightiest civilizations will surely have ancient culture and some hidden adventure trails. This tour takes you on a historical journey that touches on the famous Queen of Sheba to a king who built the first church in Sub-Saharan African. If you have seen Ethiopian women in an exotic white traditional dress, you bet it came from Axum. We take you to the skilled craftspeople behind Ethiopias amusing traditional wear. And more.
