TRIP REVIEWS (6)

Beth McMahon

We truly enjoyed our tour to Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan. Our tour agent Eduard was very helpful and responsive. The service we had was of the highest quality. All the hotels were very comfortable and centrally located and we had a chance to explore the cities by ourselves. Our guides: Ara in Armenia, Sandro in Georgia and Ina in Azerbaijan couldn’t have been better. All the drivers were on time and very professional. We felt very safe with them. The whole trip was brilliant, and Caucasus is a wonderful region to visit. I have been recommending this trip to all my friends from the first day we started the trip.

Hi tatev, we are back to Australia and wanted to write a feedback about the wonderful trip you have organized for our family. I have a few comments which I think might be helpful for you.
1. The guides were great. We can’t thank you enough for hiring Ani as our tour guide in Armenia. She is truly a jewel. Please pass our greetings to her. We also liked our Georgian guide Alex. The only comment I have here is with the guide in Azerbaijan. His English was poor, but we understand that locals can’t speak Native English. It was not a big deal for us.
2. The hotels you picked for us were wonderful. The best one was probably Doubletree in Yerevan. In Signaghi you have booked Holiday inn for us, which was nice too, however we had to wait a bit longer than usual for checking in. There was a big group which caused the issue, I think in this case it is better to have 2 people working in the front desk. I understand that you can’t manage this, however, they should improve their service.
3. The drivers were good too. We felt very safe in each country. Although in Azerbaijan the van was a bit smaller than in the other two countries. We packed a lot of stuff with us as we had more than 2 weeks in Caucasus and had to be in Russia next, but the cars in Armenia and Georgia had bigger luggage space.
Hope this comments will help you. Overall, the trip was remarkable. Thank you for all the arrangements. We have already started showing our photos to relatives and recommending your company. So wait for emails from our friends. Best of luck, Julia.

We have just returned to Stockholm from the 16 Day tour to Caucasus. Our well-organized program by the tour coordinator Rima was the best choice to discover this region. Perfect places to see and discover every day something new. Our hotels were clean and had excellent locations in all countries. Our guides from all countries are very knowledgeable, helpful and knew a lot about their countries. Our drivers were very professional and we felt very safe during the whole trip. Thank you very much and congratulations to all on the Arara team who have made it all happen!
