Sefanit Mengiste

London Tour Guide

Sefanit Mengiste arrived in London from Ethiopia at age 14. She has been training with Women in Travel cic and Intrepid Travel to become a London based tour guide, providing a walking tour to explore Ethiopian food and culture. Shepherd’s Bush in West London is home to a thriving Ethiopian community, with many shops and cafés and even hair salons dedicated to Ethiopian culture. With the tour she hopes to help international and domestic visitors experience the Ethiopian culture and especially the ritual of making and drinking coffee, try the aromatic spices used in the cuisine and try a delicious juice known for its medicinal qualities.
Sefanit says that Ethiopia is a big part of her life. In Ethiopia, food is everything and she can think of nothing better than sharing her culture with visitors to London.
