Highlights
  • Addis Ababa food tour is a fun way to try traditional cuisine
  • Learn about Ethiopian food from market to plate
  • Traveling through crowded streets and markets is made easy with a guide
  • All transportation included with hotel pickup and drop-off
What to Expect
After pickup from your hotel in Addis Ababa, drive to Atkilt Tera, the largest produce market in the city. Your guide points out the freshest produce in the city and keeps you from getting overwhelmed by the crowds. Continue to the equally impressive Merkato spice market to learn about one of Ethiopia’s most well-known exports. Then, meet up with a group of bakers and learn how to make injera, a traditional Ethiopian bread. Afterward, eat lunch at the Taitu Hotel, the oldest hotel in Ethiopia. Learn to recognize traditional Ethiopian foods so that you know what order when you go out on your own. Follow up lunch with some sightseeing in the historic Piassa neighborhood. Next, head to the mountain city of Sululta. A traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony and chance to taste classic honey wine end your tour on a sweet note. Get dropped off at your hotel when the ceremony ends.

My injera skills were lacking but the day was a great introduction to Addis Abeba. Getting off the beaten tourist track by visiting the markets was a highlight and my guide, Seya, and driver, Tomerask?, were great. I am a woman traveling alone but felt safe both in the crazy

I would highly recommend this culinary tour - I felt I got to the heart of Addis through the food and drink experiences I had. It ended up being a private tour as i was the only one that day. My guide Zerefa ("Z") and driver Tamrat were both very genial and adaptable. We did all
