Favorite site in Armenia
Vardan believes that Khor Virap Monastery is one of the must-visit sights in Armenia. First of all, it has historical importance and its location with the best view of Mount Ararat is absolutely awe-inspiring.
Why guide?
For Vardan it is a great opportunity to communicate with different people and solve non-standard problems that happen along the way. The communication with each tourist helps him to learn traditions and customs of other nations.
Random Facts
If you want an extremely adventurous experience of Armenia, Vardan is the guide for you. He leads jeep, motorbike and, hiking tours, but his love for adventure is not an obstacle to him guiding cultural tours and showing Armenian heritage at its best.

Hi Tatev, we have successfully reached home. What an amazing time we spent in your region. We will truly remember our hiking to Armenia and Georgia. Thank you for arranging our trip. Also, thank our guide Vardan for taking care of us. He was very polite and always provided hand sanitizers and face masks, although you gave us a bunch as well! We really enjoyed our hiking in Georgia too, the lakes were very beautiful, as you mentioned, so thank you for suggesting us having that hike. Overall, we really enjoyed our trip and have already passed your contact details to our friends, so check your email for new bookings!

Hi. I'm now back in England, and just wanted to thank you for everything you did to allow us to become acquainted with Armenia and have such a fantastic holiday. It was wonderful, and impossible without the help of Arara and our guide, Vartin. Responsible Travel have asked for a review, which I've provided, and I've reviewed Hotel Apricot on Trip Advisor. Many thanks and good luck. Arara deserves to do well. Best wishes,

Vardan was an eager guide/driver. He was always asking if the itinerary was meeting my expectations (as I had none, I couldn’t really steer the tour in another direction) . I realize now I’m more of an outdoors/nature traveller & should have requested a tour featuring more of those activities. Staying out of Yerevan for at least one night’s hotel would have been great exposure to other areas of Armenia as well. Overall, I enjoyed my tour. I have an understanding of Armenia that independent travel does not afford. My correspondence via email was answered promptly by Tatev.
If I’m fortunate enough to return to Armenia, I’d arrange a tour through Arara.
