Axum Things to Do: 35 reviews and 95 photos

Hello. Please let me introduce my local guide and friend, Firdi Mekonen. In addition to being the most knowledgeable and friendly Guide and Historian in Axum, he is also very reasonable with his rates. Firdi is the Cousin of a friend from Addis Ababa. He is not only knowledgeable about the history of the Auxmite Empire; he is also really a lot of fun too. Many of Axum’s historical treasures are actually walking distance from every hotel in town. Local transport can be arranged for any other historical sites outside of town by Firdi. As he is male, he can also take Men into the shrine forbidden to women (Ladies, hand over your digital cameras).

You can contact Firdi by telephone or email. He can arrange:

• Airport Transfers
• Hotels
• Tours of all sites
• Entrance fees
• A fascinating tour and full explanation of the historical museum
• Direct you to banks, restaurants and shops

His details are:
