Dawit Tesfay, owner and operator of Covenant Tours, we have a passion for showing others the Ethiopia we know and love. When I was a young boy, I earned money by making small wooden crosses in Axum. As I grew older, I realized I wanted to be the one leading tours, not just making crosses along the way. I led local tours of Axum for three years after I completed high school. Then an opportunity arose for me to receive further training as a tour guide. Realizing that this was the next step in accomplishing my dream of “being the premier tour guide” in Ethiopia, I quickly agreed. Through the Lion Ethiopia Tourism and Hotel Management school I received a two-year degree. I am both a certified tour operator and tour guide. I have studied the history, architecture, flora and fauna of sites all across Ethiopia. And obviously I know the culture very well. I seek to create tours that will allow visitors to see not only the most historical sites, but also some of the most beautiful places in the country. I also continue to take classes to ensure that my information is accurate and interesting. As a smaller tour company, I take pride on being able to offer completely customized packages and specialized attention to everyone who comes to take a tour with us. We look forward to showing you around Ethiopia soon!
we have a lot to offer!
