TRIP REVIEWS (14)

Brad Mitchell

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.

Dear Tatev, as promised I am sending my feedback on the tour. Thank you for making my dream happen. At first I was cautious of traveling with unknown people, but later I really found it such a great experience to get along with people who now share the same memories as me.

We greatly enjoyed our hiking in Georgia. We had a lot of hikes around the lakes, which were really amazing.

The Arara tour agency arranged all my transfers both in Armenia and Georgia. And generally our guides were perfect, with professional knowledge which is so important in this tour.
