Kate Hale

Hi Sati & Lusine
Thank you for both organising our Caucasus tour. We all had a great time & it all worked well. Anie, our Armenia guide was excellent & drivers were all good too. Sophie & Alex the guides for Georgia were also really good, especially Alex ! The van driver in Georgia was a bit scary & not wanting to slow down when we requested. Our Azerbaijan guide Farman took a bit to settle into our group, ( he had a cold & was up early to meet us at border )he improved after a sleep & a chat from us on what he wanted us to do & when he was wanting to tell us information about places. Drivers great in Azerbaijan.
We also don’t know how a Tbilisi city tour was taken off our itinerary?? Sophie kindly jiggled parts of itinerary to fit it in for us. No way did we ask for it to be removed. We would also have taken your advice on Kutaisi being too far away & a waste of a lot of time. The Stalin museum was a must & very interesting. We also think on future tours, you could suggest to groups the idea of a free day at the beautiful vineyard area in Georgia.
We loved Azerbaijan, such a shame you’re not able to visit there ! Baku was fabulous, a lovely combination of old & modern buildings.
Thank you for your input to making it such a memorable holiday.
Kind regards

Kate Hale

Brad and Emilie Huggins

Hi Satine, my sincere thanks to you for your professional support all your team and especially our guides, Haykuhi in Armenia, Tazo in Georgia and Karim in Azerbaijan for their great assistance. I am really surprised how nations living so close to each other can be so different, but charming their own way. Hotels where very good, everywhere, just in Tbilisi service was a bit weaker than other cities. Vehicles were comfortable and clean everywhere, again Georgian driving is fast , but we felt quite safe. Tatev Monastery in Armenia and the cable car with view was amazing, also I want to mention Tbilisi atmosphere, Prometheus Cave and mud volcanoes in Azerbaijan. The trip was very interesting, again big thanks. I definitely will recommend your agency to my friends and share the dry fruits and wine I brought.
Many regard Brad and Emilie Huggins
