I went in Lake Wenchi and Menagesha Suba Forest Park with Meki. She speaks english very well and I enjoy her passion for the culture and the history of this fantastic country. She is also very organized and flexible. I would 100% recommend her to anyone and everyone who wants to go take a trip to Ethiopia
