Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    The tour starts in the Addis Ababa's Atlas neighborhood with a welcome drink or coffee. From there we set off on foot to a family owned restaurant serving our favorite vegetarian dishes in the country. As we walk through the neighborhoods, our guides will share lots of information about Addis Ababa and the history and culture of the country. Next we visit Addis Ababa's most famous meat house followed by a fish restaurant. We'll refuel with some coffee and have a fresh juice for dessert! At every stop we'll try beers from different parts of the country. The tour ends around 8pm.

    This was one of the most amazing tours I've been on. The food is some of the best I could have in the city, but also they are from spots that I probably would never be able to find or go to without a guide. The whole experience lets you experience food and Addis like the locals
