Amazing Tour Guide

"I loved having Yonas as our guide in Ethiopia. Although I had been there many times before, he suggested places to visit that were awesome. He knows Ethiopian history and culture and presents it in a way you can understand. If you hire Yonas you will have an amazing tour guide and gain a wonderful friend."
