TRIP REVIEWS (55)

Andrew Court

Ok, I thought that the tour was great. I really loved Baku, the monastaries of Georgia and Armenia. I think I enjoyed the feeling of Georgia and Armenia a lot. The tour covered a lot and I really enjoyed most of the places we went to. The only place I found difficult was the Manuscript museum in Yerevan. The guide spoke very quickly without giving us a chance to take a break and look at things. The contents were beautiful and the guide was very passionate about it, but it was a bit much to listen to.

I loved the walking tours of Baku and Tbilisi and the national Museum in Yerevan, the Cascades and the Genocide Museum. 

One thing that was different was that lunches were at 4:00. That didn't bother me, but it took time to have lunch. Anna often suggested that we buy lunch on the way or stop at food courts, which gave us more time for the tours and we were able to get back to the hotel earlier on some days.

The guides
Svetlana was very knowledgeable and was enthusiastic, but she tended to try and do too much. If one person wanted to stop for coffee, the rest of the tour group got a bit annoyed. She also went to change money and didn't come back for an hour. Her intentions were good, and it certainly didn't spoil the tour, but it meant that we had to rush through the afternoon part of the tour.

My main bit of feedback for Svetlana would be to learn everyone's name and to communicate to the group what is going on. E.g. We are stopping here for a toilet break.

Otherwise she was good.

Luca had a great sense of humour and communicated clearly. He was very passionate about Georgia and loved his food and wine. He did a great job. 

One bit of feedback would be asking the group when they wanted lunch so we could book somewhere beforehand. Or on busy days, suggest that we get something to snack on. 

He was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and really made our trip enjoyable.

Anna was excellent. She had excellent knowledge and communicated well. She looked after us well. She didn't have Luca's sense of humour, but she responded well and was a fantastic guide.

Overall it was a fantastic trip. The hotels were clean and serviceable, the content was just right and the guides were helpful.

When I was talking with the other members of the group, they mentioned they would like more free time to explore Yerevan or Tbilisi (we had some time in Baku).

Thank you once again. I had a wonderful time.

Marcel and Yvonne Schembri.

Overall our trip went very well. We enjoyed the places we visited in all three countries. A few points that could have been better organised. 1 Lunch breaks should be short so especially on a long day like Day 8 which has very interesting sites in a long day. 2 The Tours could have started at 9.00 instead of 10.00 especially when long distances are involved. 3. The Hotels Molokai Inn in Baku and Sheki were excellent.     The Hotel In Tiblisi was good.     Thank you for organising the Gluten Free breakfast in Yerevan but most of the receptionists at Hotel Metropol did not communicate well in English. Special mention for Raffi in Yerevan who went out of his way to help us and was very well organised. I would gladly recommend Arara Tours to my friends and look forward to using your services again in the future.

I had an amazing educational experience on the Caucasian Tour. Exploring the history of these three countries was eye-opening, revealing new information I wasn't aware of previously. This journey has broadened my perspective significantly. Altay, our Azerbaijan guide, was a walking Google, always equipped with answers and an iPad for reference. His dedication to teaching us about Azerbaijan's history and culture was remarkable, including well-timed "technical stops" for deeper insights. Ani, our Armenia guide, was equally impressive in sharing her extensive knowledge of Armenian history and religion, bolstered by her strong educational background. She even pleasantly surprised us with treats like candies and fruits along the way. Sophie was attentive and considerate to our needs throughout. All three guides were exceptional fountains of information, showcasing their countries with immense pride and passion. I'm truly thankful for the opportunity to expand my horizons!
