I did my tour with Yihun and it was a really nice experience. I was on a private tour as it was booked quite late and i was alone there. I was taken from the airport and we drove through some iconic sights of Addis-Abeba. It was Epiphany holiday so there were a lot of people on the streets, marching and celebrating. A lot of roads were closed so we finished a bit late but a was safely brought back to the airport, there were no problems. If you are few hours in Addis-Abeba, on a layover with Ethiopian Airlines with a single entry visa - then this tour is highly recommended. I enjoyed a lot.
