Top Local Tips for Addis Ababa
Airport Be prepared for a bit of confusion at the airport. We arrived early for our flight but found the Ethiopian airlines check in process to be a bit disorganized--some lines that didn't seem to be properly ordered. And you should be sure to convert your leftover Ethiopian money back to your local currency before you leave Ethiopia.
Careful of NTO (National Tourism) Office in Hilton Lobby I had mixed luck with the National Tourism Office. I had a great tour of Addis Ababa by car that I booked there, but comparing around I was overcharged ($75). Had a great guide -- if you go, ask for Fish. However, I paid the head of the shop an extra $25 to make ongoing hotel bookings for me in Axum, which he took and agreed to do, but I had to press him and his staff over the next 24 hours and it was clear they did not particularly want to help. One staff person, a woman who spoke very poor English, later called me from the shop and tried to get me to agree to a car and driver in Axum for $1,000 USD! I said no, you must mean 1,000 Birr, but she said no. I refused and when I got to Axum I booked my own car and driver tour for $150, which was still expensive for a half day but the service was good.
Get rental and driver through the hotel. We knew a couple there so we got a local rental car with a local driver. It was cheaper and the driver was nice enough. However, the local drivers usually do not have the best English and this can create some challenges. We happen to know some local people who were able to translate in tight corners over the mobile phone. Therefore, most people probably want to deal with the more expensive hotel car rental.
