What to Expect
Your tour begins with morning pickup from your Addis Ababa hotel. Head into the Entoto Mountains and admire views as your driver navigates the twisting mountain road. When you reach the Entoto summit, snap some photos and enjoy free time at a vista point. Then, continue to Debre Libanos monastery; tour the historic churches and visit the attached museum. When you’re done looking around, eat lunch at a restaurant with views of the Jemma River Gorge (included). After eating, walk to Ras Darge’s Bridge, also known as the Portuguese Bridge—a historical bridge popular for its views of the surrounding valley. Time permitting, you might visit the Blue Nile Gorge, climb the St. Teklehaimanot cave, and visit with Oromo people to learn more about everyday life in the mountains. Tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Did a day trip from Addis Ababa. Pick up was on time and guide spoke fairly good English. The tour was well paced and managed to be back in the city in time. While the monastery was just average, the views of the gorge was beautiful. Recommended if time permits whole in Addis

Tour was as advertised. The driver Tamira was safe (as one can be—other drivers, not so much) and both he and guide Zarefa* were proud and joyful to share their love of Ethiopia. The Gelada baboons did not disappoint, but the unexpected surprise was the spectacular and dramatic

Zerefa is a five star tour guide with empathie. We learnt so much about life in the country. Tamirat was the driver, you feel safe. Both are highly recommended.

An excellent way to spend a day away from Addis. On time and very pleasant, I would certainly recommend my guide Alex and driver Tamrat. Alex was a wealth of information and Tamrat an excellent driver.
