TRIP REVIEWS (60)

Terry and Dianne

Hello Sati
Thank you for the reminder about our wonderful South Caucasus trip with Arara. We are now continuing our journey through Europe and are in Norway.
South Caucasus Trip Summary

We thoroughly enjoyed the 13 days touring the three small South Caucasus countries, straddling Western Asia and Eastern Europe, (Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia), and highly recommend these countries for a bucket list. Sati, the office coordinator, of Arara Tours based in Yerevan, Armenia was a very good and prompt communicator. She organised the guided tour, separately contracted within each country. Everything went like clockwork, itinerary informative, all accommodation booked, daily tours on time, and the 18 to 21-seater Mercedes vans were comfortable. We did spend a lot of time in the vans to visit the sights.

Our guides Jay and Saddique in Azerbaijan were average. Our Georgian guide Sophie was fun, friendly and well-informed. But the best was Ani (Arni) our Armenia guide, a very well-educated lady in her 30s with impeccable English and a thorough knowledge of history, culture, religion, architecture and archaeology. Ani epitomised everything a guide should be and had translated for the Pope and other visiting dignitaries. Our group of 5 Americans, 2 Canadians and 3 Italians were fun to be with and we all got along very well.

Overall a wonderful experience and we highly recommend Arara Tours for planning and running a comfortable group tour for travellers over the age of 50 years. Thank you, Sati.

Hi Sati, Thank you for your assistance which has been both informative and professional. We
very much enjoyed the tour guides in Georgia and Armenia they are a credit to your
company. Days in Azerbaijan were a bit chaotic and  long  in parts.
Pleased it picked up for us after that.
Kind regards

Hello Ani, we are finally back home in Toronto after a long flight. We had an amazing trip to the Caucasus with my husband. You have been truly helpful and efficient and clearly provided us with the service we expected. I will definitely plan another trip with your company, maybe to the 5 Stans or Baltics. Thank you!
