"When my wife and I traveled to Ethiopia, we were so blessed to have Dereje as our driver and guide. Having him drive us around Addis and travel with us to Adama gave us such confidence as we traveled. He is the consummate professional, and has the unique ability to personally connect with whomever he works with. He is equally talented at weaving through traffic, negotiating with sellers, and providing stories of the rich history of Ethiopia along the way. Dereje truly cares about the people he works with, and we completely trust his judgment and advice. Because of our experience with Dereje, he has become much more than just a driver or guide...he's become a personal friend we can't wait to see and work with again when we return to Ethiopia!"

"Dereje Debebe is an incredible tour guide. His knowledge of the culture and history of Ethiopia and Addis Ababa is exemplary. As a teacher and student of history I found Dereje’s insights and interpretations into the sights, culture, and history of Addis Ababa and Ethiopia to be fascinating, astute, and illuminatingly interesting. His network of contacts and friends in the tourism industry give him and his clients access to some behind the scene sights that many people miss. I saw things that I know that I would have missed had I been with another tour guide. I would not hesitate to hire Dereje the next time I am in Addis Ababa."
"With the utmost care and precision, Dereje and Melaku led me through Ethiopia. Their heart for their country and their people is overwhelming and contagious. I continue to learn so much through their caring eyes that see with a depth of insight far beyond the norm. They have a unique understanding of both Ethiopia and the West. I trust them, and give them the highest recommendation for your travels."
