Genet was amazing and very knowledgeable. Our large group consisted of 7 kids including my own 2. We loved the tour and the food was delicious!! Absolutely will( and already have) recommended this to other traveling families!
We joined the Food Tour during our recent visit to Addis Ababa/Ethiopia. It was a really interesting and enjoyable experience involving 5 separate dining 'experiences' at local restaurants (we were the only tourists at all of them which was nice) all of which were quite different and great fun. The highlights were raw meat cubes at a local beef restaurant which was excellent and a really wonderful coffee ceremony to round off the tour at a little, local restaurant with the usual delicious home roasted Ethiopian coffee. All in all, highly recommended with a really helpful and knowledgeable guide.
Our guide, Gennet, gave us invaluable insight into the everyday life of Addis Ababa. Prior to meeting with her, we had been overwhelmed by the poverty and begging we saw in much of the city. Gennet showed us how the middle class lives and eats. In particular, she spent extra time with us at a local jebena buna bet, where we photographed the coffee ceremony for our book on worldwide coffee experiences.
Our guide was great, and it was a great variety of food.
Both informative and delightful
Fun and nformative -- a special introductory tour to experience Ethiopian cuisine, coffee, and culture. We loved it! It's perfect on arrival in Addis Ababa.
Was a great tour for someone who didn't know Ethiopia (my friend). My only advice/feedback is it would be nice to incorporate some tej tasting. Oh and the tilapia was not so tasty. :)
I'm very happy to see that food tours finally happening in this country with such a special world-class cuisine. Go Addis has a knack for picking good offbeat local spots. We were led by a very sweet schoolteacher-turned-guide named Genet. She gave full answers to my many questions about teff, injera, berbere, and the very real etiquette of communal eating Ethiopia-style. We sampled wines, fasting fare, giant fish, fresh fruit juice, and somehow made room for my favorite dish -- chequena tibs -- to top it all off. Come hungry!
Hi Go Addis Team! I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for the most wonderful inside into Ethiopian culture we could possibly imagine! We had a brilliant time on every single one of your tours and simply can’t stop raving about it to all our friends and family. It was wonderful and exceeded all our expectations. Go Addis got the balance between fun, discovery and local culture just right and your guides Genet, Birhanu and Desalegn are simply a joy to be around ( and a great team!). The food tour is design to perfection and Genet is a master of it! She is simply incredible and the way she introduces the food, the beer, talks about local culture, the country, the customs and how is it like to live in Addis is so interesting that I could just listen to her for hours and never get bored. She was extremely helpful with arranging our evening jazz outing and really put a lot of effort in ensuring that we got there and back safely. Thank you Genet! Birhanu was fabulous. Flexible, funny, full of interesting stories and always smiling! A pleasure to be around. We had an incredible half a day tour and were lucky to go to Mt Entoto without any rain on the way! Loved the lunch in the hot springs place ( what lovely surprise!). Thanks a million Birhanu for making it so special. Desalegn was a proper action man and the right person to take us around the markets. He navigated with skill and humour through the maze of the markets. Everyone seemed to love him there! And the coffee in Tomoca was to die for! And the breakfast in Kategna was simply perfection! Thanks to Desalegn! I work for a large Tour Operator and I know how hard it is to put a perfect tour together and how hard it is to train a perfect guides but let me tell you, you guys have done it just right. I’m so glad you have showed us around Addis and I can only assure you that all our friends and family will follow in our steps as seeing Addis with “ Go Addis” is a MUST! THANK YOU
Really professional, well organised and informative tour. Great opportunity to try local cuisine, meet some wonderful people and indulge in a glass or two of 'Turbo'. We would highly recommend this particular food tour and Go Addis.
