Me and my husband made a two night stop in Addis going back from a longer trip in Kenya. Daily addis Tours made a two days tour for us, with an amazing guiding in Addis and also to Debre Libanos Monastery. We are impressed over the rich culture and history that Ethiopia has and the excellent guiding we got made us really want to get back and go on a longer tour in this amazing country. Thank you for making our short stay so memorabl

Solo Female Traveler: Day trip to Debre Libanos monastary
Nov 2019
I booked this tour at very short notice - Yonas dealt with my queries quickly and efficiently, and all was arranged! I did the tour about 6 hours after I landed (the following morning), so this was an excellent introduction to Ethiopia. I had requested a day trip to show me around with a particular emphasis on birds.

Yonas, my guide, picked me up at my hotel.We spent about 3 hours driving through the Abyssinian highlands - the Sululta plains. We saw lots of lovely birds, including several endemic Gelada baboons to the area. Once we arrived at Debre Libanos monastery, we spent some time at the church. There was a funeral on at the time, which was very moving.

Having just arrived the night before, I struggled to walk even short distances (altitude sickness) but Yonas adapted his pace to suit me. He was interesting, knowledgeable and engaging (regarding the birds and general information).

I certainly recommend this tour! his contact details for (whatsapp)+251913384298)email:
