  Amateur guides at the bus stop
by SirRichard

When you go to Tis Abay Falls, you will find many guides willing to help you as you go down the bus. Most are just local guys who want to earn some dollars. If you just wanna get there and be back you can bargain with them. Don't pay more than 20B, it's the normal fee.
But if you want "official guides", head to the Tickets Box office (at the end of the main road) and there you will see some guys with a green jacket that offer you their services for 30B (3 Usd). They are just a little bit more experienced than the other guys, but know a little about history and so and are good value.
