TRIP REVIEWS (1)

Zachery Biddles

My sincere thanks to you for organising my holiday to Armenia, Artsakh and Iran. I had the trip of a lifetime! I am very fortunate to have seen so many wonderful places and experienced the culture of all countries.
I very much enjoyed Narek’s company, he has a deep knowledge and appreciation of Armenia and Artsask’s history, culture and historical sights. I am very thankful for his service as a fantastic guide and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Thank you for your work in arranging my Iranian visa, I had no issues with crossing the border. It was great to see Iran again! I particularly loved Masouleh and Rudkhan Castle. I was pleased to see that Iran has improved since I was last there 3 years ago as the society seems more organised and relaxed, perhaps with the new president. I was extremely surprised to see the American Embassy is now open as a museum, last time it was closed and guarded. I highly recommend the American Embassy as a must see in Tehran!
Armenia and Artsakh are incredibly beautiful countries with interesting history, strong tradition and warm and kind people. I was particularly taken with the natural scenery of Lake Sevan, Areni/Norovank Monastery and Gandzasar Monastery.  I will return to Armenia, hopefully in the near future, to see Artsakh again and northern Armenia. In the meantime I will be promoting Armenia as a terrific and ‘must see’ holiday destination and will refer all interested to AraraTour.
Many thanks for making my holiday materialise, organising my requested additions to the itinerary and arranging transportation to and from the airport. It is hard returning back to work and reality after an incredible holiday! Nonetheless, it was truly the trip of a life time and I have many wonderful memories to think back on.

Cheers and all the very best,
