REVIEWS

Madhur Rao 26.05.2017

The trip went very well thanks to Lusine and Narek.  The best thing was the surprise cake at Tavern Yerevan which really surprised both of us. So thank you for that.  Narek is a very good guide and gives a lot of suggestions.  He is a great asset to your team.  The Land Rover was also great.  So overall, our trip went well and our friends are impressed with the photos which we have shown them.  Some friends have asked us about your contact details and they will be contacting you when they decide on Armenia.

Thanks for your help and special thanks to Narek for taking care of us during out stay in Armenia
