Hello Sati!
We are now back in the US and truly enjoyed our tour! Following are some detailed thoughts about the trip: In Armenia: Our guide Haykuhi was fantastic! She was so organized and was always guiding us to our next location with excellent details about how much time we had, where we would meet, and what we could expect. Her knowledge of Armenia and her passion for sharing her knowledge were infectious, and I left with a strong love for this country thanks to her.

The Cascade Hotel was wonderful: the accommodations were very nice, the breakfast was delicious, and the staff was remarkable! They were very pleasant and helpful in so many respects. It was in a great location, too! Some excellent restaurants within walking distance.

Both of our drivers in Armenia and Georgia were outstanding: always punctual and very friendly. Our transport to and from the airports was also excellent as we had plenty of time and had no problems finding the driver upon arrival.

The sights we were taken to were fascinating. I truly loved the Matenadaran Museum...probably my favorite place of the entire trip! I would have liked a bit more time in the History Museum of Armenia. The Genocide Museum was very powerful. The wine-tasting was quite enjoyable, and the staff was excellent! One of the best things about this part of the tour was that Haykuhi arranged 2 of our lunches with restaurants where we all got to eat together as a group and were served a shared meal, like a buffet. This was a wonderful opportunity to get to know one another and not have the stress of ordering, paying the bill, and not knowing the language.

In Georgia: Alex was a very fun guide. He was not quite as specific about the details of our days as Haykuhi was but still made for an enjoyable tour. He had wonderful suggestions for places to eat. He was very personable and shared so much of his life in Georgia with our group. His personality made for a great adventure in Georgia.

Hotel Tiflis in Tbilisi was a bit of a disappointment. The lack of a lift made it difficult for some of our group to get their luggage to their rooms. The beds were not very comfortable (very stiff and noisy mattresses). The staff were nice and helpful when we asked. The breakfast was good but not nearly as good as the one at the Cascade Hotel.

The tours to Mtskheta and Old Town were very informative. The cable car ride up to the Fortress was wonderful. The lunch at Gudauri ski resort was some of the best food we had on our trip! Despite the rain, the view from Gergeti Trinity Church was fantastic! The last day in Georgia seemed a bit rushed as we saw the palace, fortress (with a museum), and the winery and breadmaking. That could easily be 2 days worth of sightseeing, I think. The Khareba Winery was my favorite of all the sights in Georgia! Our guide Lulu was so informative and friendly. We had a great time there and with the breadmaking. I just wish we could have had more time there!

Overall, it was a fantastic adventure, and I will be sure to leave a positive review on TripAdvisor! Your company did a great job organizing this tour and has excellent customer service. Thank you so much!

Sincerely,
Terri

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Armenia and Georgia. Both guides, Raffi and Sandro were excellent in their different ways. The driver, Karen, in Armenia was very safe, efficient and pleasant. In Georgia it was less easy to communicate with the non-Russian speaking driver. The hotel Cascade in Yerevan was very well placed and the room comfortable and clean, though quite small. An evening at a well-known restaurant was arranged but our taxi-driver was unable to find the place for a long time because the hotel had given the wrong address. We expected a show of traditional singing/dancing but the entertainment was a version of "Avatar" - very loud and of little interest. However the tours in the daytime were excellent.
In Tbilisi the hotel was also very central and we had a large room overlooking a lovely courtyard. Again the tours were very good indeed and our guide most accommodating. We particularly enjoyed the visits to Mt. Kazbek, the 4-wheel drive and to the winery. We had some very fine Armenian and Georgian meals and would very much like to return to both countries.
Thank you so much for your very efficient arrangements.
