I was born and grew up in a small Goba town which is located in the heart of the Bale Mountains. I studied tour guiding service at one of the Tourism training institutes in Ethiopia. My passion for travelling and the fascinating historical and Natural attractions of my country have lead me into this profession which I adore. I have been working as a tour guide and organizer for more than 10 years all around Ethiopia, I've led and managed groups of tourists in all corners of Ethiopia, I have also worked with film crews, research groups, and professional photographers. Such wide experience has helped me to gain various related skills and now allows me to handle clients in a flexible, friendly and professional way. I have experience in different kinds of tours such as trekking, bird watching, Historical tours, Cultural attractions and many others. I am very enthusiastic to meet new people from different parts of the world and help them witness the amazing natural and historical destinations of my country and also organize their holidays in every corner of Ethiopia. I am also very excited to get to know other nationalities, and explore with them our culture tourism attractions.
