Despite the fact that Armenia is a small country it has a surprisingly rich diversity of flora and fauna. About 345 bird species are recorded here! By choosing our exclusive Birding Tour in Armenia you will have a great opportunity to take part in a 10-day journey and observe many kinds of semi-desert, forest, high-mountain and water birds. At Lake Sevan, you will visit the Gull Island and observe endemic Armenian Gulls (Larus armenicus) and various migrant waders. Moreover, you will visit various ancient attractions and get in touch with ancient times!
I would like to thank Arara tour for organizing our bird watching tour to Armenia. We were a small group of 6 friends, who wished to travel to Armenia to see the beautiful birds of the region. Arara travel agency helped us with the arrangements of the trip. I would like to thank Ms. Tatev for her professional work and organizational skills. She has put an amazing tour itinerary which helped us to see my favorite bird Yellow Wagtail. We have seen many birds during the tour which was our main goal.
The hotels were nice 3 stars hotels. Cascade hotel was in the very center of the capital which was very nice. The regional hotels were ok.
Our driver was a very nice and humble man, he helped us with our luggage. The guide was exceptional, he knew everything about the birds and answered all our questions.
All in all, we were very happy with everything and we will surely recommend Arara to our friends.
Dear Sati, Due to circumstances Lars is not in the office yet. I’ve taken a closer
look at the reviews and I made a small selection. I will let Lars know about the feedback as well so you can both have a
look at it for next year

Also some feedback from our guide: All restaurants were good! Great food was served.
Program: An extra jeep excursion to see the red tailed wheatear and perhaps
add a morning excursion to see the Syrian Brown bear.
Visited areas: A hotel is built in the area we’ve visited to see the
Bimaculated Lark, which is a shame. Perhaps, it’s good to look for another
Guide/driver: Good driver, with a relaxing way of driving. Guide was good,
but sometimes difficult to understand. His English was not that good. Our
guide knew a few nice spots, where he had seen a lot before. However, the
initiative to stop at those places was low. Our guide knew of a Bubo Bubo
location, luckily they made a stop there.
Hotels: He recommends to pick another hotel instead of Nov Land, as their
is no atmosphere and the area around the hotel was not safe due to working
