    We spent 12 days with Fruitt Fsaha(fish), a federal guide based Addis Ababa. Fruitt is a very pleasant person, with excellentservicesand an excellent knowledge about the history ofEthiopia. He is also a sociable. During the 12 days we spent a spectacular time with him, He organize for us a visit in a rare attraction , a visit to a natural destinations, and meetings with rural people on several location with coffee ceremony. All was organized on the professional way. I recommend him for every one that is looking for a guide in Ethiopia.

    My brother and I had a wonderful tour of Ethiopia, led by our guide, Fruitt Lij, in February 2016. We have been fortunate to have traveled to many different countries, and had a lot of guides. I would say, with out a doubt, Lij was the best guide we had in Ethiopia.He is open, and honest. He encourages you to ask about anything that you might wonder about, and he will answer truthfully. His knowledge and enthusiasm for his country is boundless. He managed our bigg group of 19 thrugh out the north and south of Ethiopia flawlessly. I must say that Ethiopia is a phenomenal destination, but Lij had made it, for my Brother and I, a trip that one might describe as ‘life-changing”…I recommended Lij as your travel guide, with out reservations, and with enthusiasm.
