TRIP REVIEWS (7)

David Jacob

I recently returned from a 20 day private tour arranged by Arara tours to Armenia & The Republic of Georgia .
It was a fantastic trip. My trip coordinator at Arara, was Tatev . She listened carefully to everything I requested in terms of things I wanted to see, activities and hotel accommodations. Everything was arranged perfectly despite the COVID situation.
The ancient Monasteries in Armenia are breathtaking. And the hiking in Dilijan National Park in Armenia was invigorating. Learning the history and culture from my excellent guides in both Armenia & Georgia was great. It’s hard to believe the diversity of landscapes in Georgia. Snow capped mountains and fast running rivers. Armenia & Georgia are also well known for their high class wines .
In summary, Arara tours & Tatev put together a very wonderful custom tour of 2 fascinating countries with beautiful landscapes and incredible history.
Thank you !

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!

Armenia part of Armenia & Georgia Hiking Tour.
I am separating the two countries because we had different guides/ drivers
The guide Hasmik was very enthusiastic and accommodating in Yerevan where we had already seen the places included in the day trip. No assistance with lunch though. Not a problem for us.
The ecstatic comments on the culture and nature of Armenia wore a little thin at the end of the five days when the number of monasteries and churches started to overwhelm us.
On day 4 she suggested a substitute walk which we believed was a swap with a visit to yet another monastery . The walk was enjoyable but it turned out it was a swap for day five’s walk which would see us missing out on the Lastiver Caves. In the end we did both day 4 and day 5 program on day 5., Because of the extra driving we were asked to pay 15000 Drahms(31$) . No idea if it was appropriate but we agreed to it.
We did tend to start out a little late in the mornings. 10 a.m. or later, but maybe that is usual in Armenia. It did result in a couple of very late finishes and very little food left at the guesthouse on day 2. The host was very helpful though and did open the nice pool for us early next morning.
The last day was also very late because we packed more in than originally planned However the hostess at the guesthouse was to be commended for the meal she unexpectantly prepared for us.
Day 4 guesthouse was pleasant with a lovely verandah and garden. However the room would have been fine for one person, but really too small for two. We could barely open our suit cases.
All together the accommodations were fine given we were out in the country.
The tour was good but a little too many churches and monasteries. Maybe the tour name should be changed to: Armenia & Georgia, Churches, Monasteries and aHiking Tour.
The guide was very knowledgeable but could be clearer in the explanation of options.
In summary the Armenian part was good and the Georgian part great. Thank you for organising it. I am happy to recommend the tour
