Feedback_George Roos

What did you like best in your trip?
We had a great time in Yerevan and we left with great memories. Tour guides were great. Execursions were great.

What didn’t you like in trip?
The hotel in Georgia. We were promised that the hotels will be walking distance from restaurants and shops. In Georgia the hotel was located in a dodgy area far from everything. It was dark at night and we could not leave the hotel. We were told everything is 10 minutes walking distance. When we confronted the tour guide she said they actually meant 10 minutes by car. I’m highly disappointed and will definitely NOT recommend Arara tours due to this.

What would you add to your trip?
Get a better partner in Georgia and select your hotels based on what tourists need and not the cheapest so you can make more profit. in the long run this will damage your reputation as guests will warn other potential guests about this

Your feedback about your guide : Guides were excellent, no complaints regarding them.

Your feedback about your driver: Drivers were good as well

Your feedback about the car: Excellent

Your feedback about hotels: as stated before – hotel in Georgia were highly disappointed. Location is terrible – far away from restaurants, shops. located in a dark dodgy suburb.

Would you recommend our company to your friends?
Defenitely NOT – based on the misleading information about the hotel in Georgia.

AraraTour’s response: Thank you, dear George, for your feedback! We highly appreciate your opinion and won’t cooperate with this hotel anymore.
