    From then on I worked at two of the best tour operating companies in Addis Ababa as a tour operator and tour guide to all parts of Ethiopia until August 2009.
    Since then, I have been enjoying organizing and leading interesting private small group and individual tours all over Ethiopia. I specialize in tailor made private tour in and around Addis Ababa focusing on food tours, cultural tours, local experiences, and day tours from Addis Ababa.
