Lalibela (Amharic: ላሊበላ) is located 640 km north of Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. Since 1978, its 11 rock-hewn churches are part of the UNESCO World Heritage site.

Taye was a fantastic tour guide over a two day period in Lalibela and in the hills outside. He is very knowledgeable and speaks excellent English - I would fully recommend him!
