"I've been working as a Tour Operators and Tourist guide for years that offered me great opportunity to see the entire Ethiopia. For better and different tourism service rendering experiences, my employer company had sent me to South Africa (twice) and to Tanzania for 6 months on the scheme of tourism exchange program and experience sharing. I thank to the company for such great opportunity. I had been working as a Senior Tour Operation and Tourist Guide and seen an opportunity to offer the real travel experience to traveler of Ethiopia and decided to combine my exposure, experience and my professional competence together to provide the right service and real experience to our own clients. For that, I found the right name to my new venture and named my company ‘Authentic Ethiopia Tours, established in 2011."

What our clients say
Sileshi was enthusiastic, trustworthy, reliable, flexible and responsive to our needs and requirements and a good communicator and organizer. He was prepared to go the extra mile to make our trip truly memorable.
Robin & Veronica Cross
Sileshi is excellent in his talent to bring real authentic life into every day. It was a pleasure for us with his help to meet people, to talk with them and to learn about the way of living.We are frequent travelers and have been in many countries. It would be a pleasure for us if we could find such a guide as Mr. Tesfaye in other countries.
Walter and Maria Stösser
Dear Sileshi. Margit and I do thank you for the wonderful trip we had in Ethiopia in October 2017.The magic colours on Erta Ale and in the Dallol region were unbelievably great! The second week of our tour in Lalibela and in the Semien NP were amazing as well.
Margit and TobiasSwitzerland
Sileshi is very knowledgeable in all aspects of Ethiopian society and was very keen to share with us the history, the culture and customs of the various ethnic groups we visited (Konso, Hammer, Mursi, Karo and more), the food, and the music of his country. We can only praise his kindness towards us and his patience as a guide. We are also very grateful to our resourceful driver Tensaye.... Read this review
