Amazing day with a great tourist guide!
Oct 2021
Had an amazing experience visiting Addis with Beki who showed my group of friends and I around the city of Addis. He's very knowledgeable of the cultural and social context. He can answer any question and always shares some curiosities or fun facts about the places. He's not only professional but also very kind and friendly. He helped us out even when he didn't have to. Highly recommend his service to anyone who wants to discover Ethiopia and its gems!

Great company for super day
Mar 2020 • Solo
I booked Beki for a one day tour on a recommendation from a friend. He was punctual and provided all necessary information in advance so nothing was missed.
Beki is friendly and warm, knowledgeable and a provided a great days activities. As I was on a solo trip he knew exactly the right pictures and view points.
The scenery outside Addis is beautiful, even just driving through villages you get a sense of life there. Portuguese bridge was dry this time of year but still spectacular. The monastery at Debre Lebanos has the most amazing stained glass windows, I found the setting to be very serene, enhanced by the chanting in the background.
Beki took me to visit local family village, and it was fantastic to visualise their traditional way of life and how they make use of land and resources.
I definitely recommend Beki tours be it solo or group travellers. His upbeat personality makes for easy company.
