TRIP REVIEWS (26)

Paul and Janet Brown

We had a 17 day tour to the Caucasus last month and really felt regret heading back to our country. The
tour gave us many unforgettable memories, and even the broken conditioner in the hotel in Tbilisi
couldn’t spoil the highly positive impression we had as the hotel staff quickly managed the issue. Earnest
thanks to Arara tours for such a great experience!

David Johnson

Had an amazing journey to three Caucasian countries with Arara tours. The tour was planned thoroughly,
the itinerary was quite smooth and covered many breathtaking and interesting sights. The only problem
was periodically heavy traffic in Yerevan and Tbilisi, especially in peak hours, but it’s not a really big
deal as the hotels were centrally located. We enjoyed the evening walks around the capitals.
Special highlights of the trip were the guides, Inna, Luka and Raffi.

Phoebe Abelson

I am delighted to write this review because I can not keep my emotions to myself. I have never traveled outside of North America and I am so happy I did. It was quite an experience. My family was a bit concerned about my tour to a region that far, but with Arara tours I had a peace of mind the whole time. I must say, as someone who loves to take photos, I have taken so many of them during my trip. The hotels were really good and in the city centers, I especially enjoyed the view from Brim hotel. The tour guides were really knowledgeable and good at their work, especially in Georgia and Armenia, and they kindly answered all my questions. They were proud to show their countries and were very enthusiastic while telling the history. Thank you Hasmik for the great recommendations for restaurants and for joining me for dinner. 

Sincerely,
