Summary

After pickup from your hotel in Addis Ababa, drive to Atkilt Tera, the largest produce market in the city. Your guide points out the freshest produce in the city and keeps you from getting overwhelmed by the crowds. Continue to the equally impressive Merkato spice market to learn about one of Ethiopia’s most well-known exports. Then, meet up with a group of bakers and learn how to make injera, a traditional Ethiopian bread. Afterward, eat lunch at the Taitu Hotel, the oldest hotel in Ethiopia. Learn to recognize traditional Ethiopian foods so that you know what order when you go out on your own. Follow up lunch with some sightseeing in the historic Piassa neighborhood. Next, head to the mountain city of Sululta. A traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony and chance to taste classic honey wine end your tour on a sweet note. Get dropped off at your hotel when the ceremony ends.
