Lalibela Churches Day Tour

Discovor the 12th century UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, the ‘new Jerusalem’ and the holiest town in the whole of Ethiopia with our professional tour guide!

The still active rock-hewn churches of the 12th Century attracts so many visitors and it sometimes consider as the 8th wonder of the world which we are really passionate to help our customers discover about the hidden beauties of the country's historical destinations!

The churches are excavated from a sloping mass of red volcanic scoria under laid by dark grey basalt and interconnected by a maze of tunnels and passages with openings to hermit caves and catacombs the rock-hewn churches give the impression of an underground city. But not only have the rock-churches survived until today. Something far older has, too. 

With our full day Lalibela churches Tours, you will definitely visit all the churches including Bet Giyorgis (St George), constructed in honour of the patron Saint George.
