Full description

If you’d like to dive deeper into the local life, rather than rapidly visiting monuments, this experience will please you! This four hours tour is dedicated to visit Merkato - the largest open air market in Africa. As you can imagine, the market has many sections and there is more than fruits and vegetables to be seen there. I will show you the places that only locals know of and go to. For instance, we will visit the Spice Market, the Basket Market, the Secondhand Market and the recycling section.Be prepared for an immersive experience and interactions with locals! You will cross paths with people belonging to various tribes of Ethiopia. By the way, did you know there were about 87 linguistic groups with 200 dialects in Ethiopia?
