Lalibela Rock Churches Guided Tour
USD 198.58
A UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the most popular destinations in Ethiopia, the Rock-Hewn Churches at Lalibela can be intimidating to visit on your own. Going as part of a guided tour not only eliminates transportation logistics to the ten churches scattered about this medieval town, but also includes the benefit of a narrated trip so you can better grasp the history and significance of these monolithic destinations.
What to Expect

Your tour to Lalibela churches can start straight away after your arrival and check in to your hotel.
The 11 rock cut churches in Lalibela own needs an at least one full day to visit them all.
Your guide will wait you at the airport arrival with a car. Drive 22 k/m to the town of Lalibela. After check-in drive to the first group of churches, which are 6. After your visit, we bring you for lunch to one of the best restaurant we have in town. You will have 2hrs to rest till the churches are reopened at 2pm.
2pm, drive to the 1nd group of churches, which are 4, and at the end the famous church of St' George (Bete Georgies).

After you are done with visit the churches, we take you to the town where you get invited for the famous Traditional coffee and see the way life of the locals, maybe take part in their daily activities, like baking Injera, making coffee or even cooking.

In the evening, if still not tiered we go to the best traditional bar, where you test our traditional Honey Wine, Music and dance.

On the next day, we bring you to the airport, or if you still have in Lalibela, we can organize a best trekking tour to the surrounding mountains, like: to Bilbala St. George rock hewn church, Monastery of Na’akuto La’ab and Asheton Maryam Monastery

Amazing guides
