Addis Ababa Guided Walking Tour

Walking tour in Addis Ababa

Tour Price : $45-65 Duration : 6 hours Languages: English, France


Ethiopia’s mysterious ancient cities contrast with lively Addis Ababa whose name means ‘New Flower’. Founded in 1887 by Emperor Menelik II, it is today a political and business capital home to the headquarters of the African Union and to one of the largest number of diplomatic missions in the world. Addis Ababa is the fourth largest city in Africa - a melting pot of cultures and a bizarre combination of past and present – the coexistence of old imperial statues alongside hammer and sickle placards of the former Marxist regime and the juxtaposition of wattle and daub huts with austere Italian Fascist buildings and luxurious hotels. Lift the city’s skin and the same contrasts apply: Tej bets still serve traditional honey wine and Azmaris sing centuries-old songs, while a few blocks, neon signs light up modern bars and discotheques beat with the latest global hits.

The best way to get up close and personal, and experience the best that our city has to offer! On foot is the best way to get a feel for a place, its past and its people. Be absorbed by the sights, sounds and smells of this busy, eclectic and vibrant city!

This comprehensive walking tour aims to introduce you to some of the most important historical and cultural sites in Addis Ababa. Led by an expert English-speaking guide, discover the monumental architecture, great churches, mosques, dazzling market, museums and see Addis through the eyes of a local. Addis Ababa, while cosmopolitan, is still a place where authentic Ethiopian culture is on full display. Whether you are drawn by its history, its arts, or its cuisine, there’s plenty to be surprised by here.
