TRIP REVIEWS (6)

Leslie Peterson

Vardan was an eager guide/driver. He was always asking if the itinerary was meeting my expectations (as I had none, I couldn’t really steer the tour in another direction) . I realize now I’m more of an outdoors/nature traveller & should have requested a tour featuring more of those activities. Staying out of Yerevan for at least one night’s hotel would have been great exposure to other areas of Armenia as well. Overall, I enjoyed my tour. I have an understanding of Armenia that independent travel does not afford. My correspondence via email was answered promptly by Tatev.
If I’m fortunate enough to return to Armenia, I’d arrange a tour through Arara.

Hello Gohar!

The trip was awesome. Attractions were great, weather was nice and we enjoyed having lunches in traditional Armenia’s houses. This added more to our vacation. Definitely will recommend your company to my friends and colleagues, and I already did! Also special thanks to our awesome guider. She was very friendly and I enjoyed her stories and knowledge I got from her. Also our driver was great, patient and understanding as my mum kept talking with him in Arabic
