Beautiful day out of the city. The best day of my entire stay. Guides are excellent. Professional and kind. Give you just the right amount of information. Leave enough time to take pictures and enjoy the scenery. Blindly recommend if you want to see a glimpse of what Ethiopian landscapes look like around Addis. Don't be discouraged by the time it take to get there (2hours30): it's a trip in itself! You'll see beautiful landscapes, people and animals on your way. Amazing Ethiopia.
Wishing the best for the country in the coming months....

Great day with an excellent guide and driver! I loved being able to explore outside of Addis and had a lovely time. The guide and driver were very professional and made the day easy and relaxing. Beautiful views, a nice hike, and spending time watching the baboons were some of the highlights.

Amazing trip! One of the best things to do in the Addis area. Amazing experience and amazing guides. They were very patient with us and all of our requests and was very friendly. Amazing guide at the monastery and beautiful scenery. Amazing restaurant at the Ethio German park hotel. Definitely recommend going during rainy season to see the waterfall Pass under the Portuguese bridge however any time of year would be great to visit!

Thank you once again for a fun day out. We chose the day before the great religious festival for the monastery so it was a bit crowded, but in this way I got a very good experience on how such festivals are celebrated on the country. Again I got a private tour into the church and to the prayer sites with a local monk. A special treatment and experience thanks to the good contacts and relationships the company has with the local people. I can recommend this tour but would check first if there will be celebrations or not, as the traffic on the rather narrow road does eat into your time for the days activities. I enjoyed once more getting so much information about the country and its people from my guide Joseph. Thank you also to our driver who managed to drive us safely through the traffic and the crowds. The view across the blue Nile Gorge was spectacular.

I had long wanted to visit Ethiopia and spend weeks exploring the entire country, but whilst traveling around Africa on a different trip, a last minute schedule change had me passing through Addis so I decided to at least get a taste of the country and extend my layover for a day. While trying to decide between just staying in the city or getting out in the countryside for my free day, I came across Aman Tours and I am so glad I did! They offered numerous tours around the country, but specifically this one as well as a city tour. I ultimately decided to get out of the city for the day and only spent the evenings getting a taste of the "city life". Shortly after booking, Aman, the owner, contacted me on WhatsApp to arrange all of the details of the tour. He also offered to schedule other tours for me, but unfortunately I was only there for the day. He was in constant contact with me to ensure I made it to Ethiopia safely all the way through the morning of the tour where Noah my driver and Neway my guide were waiting for me at my hotel promptly at the scheduled pickup time. From there, we got in a newer, very comfortable tourist van, with waters for me. Because I was not doing a city tour, I was happy that Neway was so friendly, passionate about his country and took the initiative to point out important city sites as we were driving by and informing me of a lot of the very interesting mix of cultures and history of the country, all while Noah professionally navigated the....hectic...traffic of Ethiopia. It took roughly 1.5 hrs to arrive to the region where the tour would take place, driving past smalls towns giving a great glimpse into the real Ethiopian life, as well as gorgeous green countrysides. I went during rainy season so there was plenty of green everywhere, and we actually got quite lucky that we had minimal rain that morning, and almost sun by afternoon!

Upon arrival, after a quick stop for a picture overlooking the valley, we may our way to the monastery. However, it happened to be the first day of a fasting so mass was still going on. It was really interesting to see all of the faithful gathering, but we were unable to do that portion of the tour until mass was over. The team quickly pivoted the schedule to head over to the waterfalls and Portuguese bridge. If you're a fan of nature, standing right over the gushing waterfalls was awe inspiring and somewhat relaxing, even if it isn't the largest waterfalls around. The bridge itself made for a good photo with the waterfalls flowing underneath it, but the history behind the bridge was more interesting.

Afterwards, we walked back up to the small lodge restaurant for lunch. Neway made great suggestions on what to eat and, if you're a fan of Ethiopian food, it was excellent, with great views over the valley. After eating, we went inside for a traditional coffee ceremony before making our way back to the church. Thankfully we beat the "rush" of tourists at the restaurant so I got some great pics and got to eat mostly in peace.

On our way back to the church, Neway, knowing tourists love catching a glimpse of the endemic Gelada baboons, made a few stops along the way to go searching for them. We found a few large groups of them! But they are little ninjas and tend to scatter before I was able to get close enough for great pictures (especially the males), but I still saw plenty with my naked eyes to be satisfied!

Lastly at the monastery, I was passed off to one of the tour guides there (possibly a monk?) who gave me great insight into the Ethiopian Orthodox religion and history as we walked around the beautifully ornate church and museum.

Finally it was time to head back to Addis. Neway, knowing I was interested in maybe picking up a unique and traditional souvenir from the country, had Noah route us towards a market outside of the city where most locals go, especially for their nice traditional clothing. However, on the way, we hit a major traffic jam that delayed our arrival to the city possibly by an hour. Noah was eventually able to get us to a detour route, but by the time we got to the market, it was getting late so I thanked them immensely for thinking of me, but said we could just return to the hotel.

Not long after the tour concluded, Aman followed up on how everything went. Everything went great and I only wish I had more days in the country to travel with this company - but would greatly recommend them again and will seek them out if/when I return to Ethiopia. If you are looking for a little more of a laid back way to spend your day outside of the hectic city, this is the perfect option without having to spend an unbearable amount of time in the car driving further away.

I booked the Half-Day City Tour of Addis Ababa with Aman tour because their itinerary suited me the most compared to other operators. Joseph was my guide and he was very knowledgeable. On the day, the church was closed due to the mass. However, Aman kindly exchanged it with a tour to Shiro Meda to buy some souvenirs. This shows how great they handled the customer service. Truly recommended.
