By combining your Diredawa trip you can include Harar so that it will be good to make the tour up to 3 days

Thank you for reply. I have a route planned. I'm taking the train from Addis to Dire Dawa. I have a short time in Dire Dawa before moving on to Harar. I am specifically looking for a guide while in Dire Dawa, or suggestions on what to do in Dire Dawa

To be fair I don't think you really need a guide for Dire Dawa. The best things to do whilst there is to just wander around looking at the interesting markets and houses. Take in a couple of cafes too, if you have a guide book you'll be absolutely fine.
