Favorite site in the Caucasus
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.
Guide reviews

Thank you for the tour organization; it was a success. We are not perfectly experienced hikers, but this was an amazing experience to find the hidden gems of these 2 wonderful countries. However beautifu Tbilisi and Erevan are, we particularly enjoyed our walk in the nature. Our tour itinerary was very well-planned with just a few overnights in the capitals, and mainly in regions. We had knowledgeable guides who knew the trails very well, we really felt safe. We also enjoyed our walk with the mountain guide Irakli to the Abudeluri lake (I am still having hard times to spell or pronounce the sites names). Definitely going to return sometime later with other interested friends to hike in Svaneti as well.

Our trip to Armenia in July was wonderfully organised by Arara Tours. Tatev, our Tour Manager, always gave detailed responses to any queries that we had. Our tour guide-cum-driver, Vartan, was always on time and gave us insights on the places we visited. The places chosen for lodging and boarding were very good. PCR testing requirements in Yerevan were also perfectly organised. All in all, a memorable trip. We would look forward to using the services of Arara again in future, whenever we decide on a Central Asian holiday.

Dear Tatev, Hope you are fine. We have safely returned home last week. Thank you for such a good organization of our holidays despite the ongoing pandemic in the world. Armenia is a country of mysterious atmosphere, incredible nature and hospitality. We were met with kindness and smiles everywhere. Meeting the locals, spending time with them and listening to their stories was one of the highlights of our trip. Vardan is a great guide, very caring and attentive. We got to know his family as well, as he was so nice to invite us to dinner. He was a very safe driver as well. The roads can be tricky sometimes as we had off-road in our routes. Now I can say it was worth it, as the scenery and views were unbelievable.
I am going to recommend your company to all my acquaintances who are interested in such a trip.
