This is our review. You have our permission to post. Would you want us to add additional INFO? My brother and I are from the United States of America. The Caucasus was a final step in achieving our goal travelling countries associated with the Silk Road. Our research began searching for a company to achieve our goal and Arara stood out as an innovative company with high quality designed tours. From the moment of contact, their company and services are excellent. We would highly recommend Arara tours. They go beyond just giving clients a truly cultural experience. Our decision was the 17-day tour. During our stay, their guides, drivers, and services were remarkable. Socializing and talking with other people from other tours, we realized how fortunate we were to go with Arara. They did not do half of what we did and they were not satisfied with the way they had seen the Caucasus. We would show them our program and they were astonished and impressed with how professional Arara tours services were. They regretted not going with them. There is a reason why Arara tours surpassed other tour operators. Their services are outstanding and they designed their tours for a true cultural experience that cannot be matched by any other tour operator. Arara deserves kudos and bravo for their innovative tours. We also learned about the past, present, and future of the Caucasus, (i.e. dating back before, during the Soviet era, and present time). Our sincere thanks and appreciation for an unforgettable cultural experience and finishing the Silk Road.
Sincerely Keith and Kevin Pierce
Good Morning. First of all thank you for a wonderful holiday. The tour was fantastic and was very well put together. We loved the variety. The making of bread and local sweets was such fun. The meal with the local family was a lovely way to end our holiday.
Tour guide in Armenia.
Avet was an amazing guide, he is extremely proud of Armenia and this is shown in his guiding. He was so friendly and helpful with a great sense of humour. His explanations were excellent and we really enjoyed his company. The first night he joined us for dinner and was an excellent companion. The next night he was not included in the booking which was a huge disappointment to us as the staff in the restaurant did not speak much English and it would have been helpful to have had our guide there.
Avet is an asset to your tours and we will return to Armenia because of his excellent tour guiding, friendliness, and pride in his country. Well done Ahmed and I wish you every success in your future endeavours.
Hotel in Armenia
Great hotel, very centrally located. Rooms clean and staff friendly.
Hotels in Georgia
This hotel was delightful, ideally located. The rooms were clean and tidy and the staff friendly. Loved the family feel of this hotel and a lovely breakfast was prepared every morning.
This was a disaster. No one could seem to find an good option and said what about the one of the road Grand Palace. We were given rooms there but it was awful. This spoiled this part of the trip for us.
The rooms were immaculate and very tastefully decorated, with crisp white sheets and fluffy towels. The owner was so friendly and welcoming. I love the fact that this a family business, the owners father had created amazing pieces of woodwork which are placed strategically on the site, his mother has created a flower garden with herbs. The setting is tranquil and peaceful and a wonderful place to relax.
Thank you for choosing this wonderful place to stay. I would stay here again without hesitation.
Tour guide Georgia.
Tom was a very good tour guide and excellent driver. He was always there at the right time, very accommodating. He helped us find currency to go to Armenia with, advised where to change euros to lari, took us to local markets. The last day he waited at the market while we bought some last minute souvenirs, which was extremely kind of him. He went over and above his duties. He was informative and we enjoyed his company at meal times. He advised on local delicacies and what to eat. He too is very proud of Georgia and this shows in his tour guiding. I loved his honesty and his knowledge.
Tom is an asset to your tour company and I wish him every success.
