TRIP REVIEWS (2)

Yulia and Irina Kremneva

Guide: Armine Mirijanyan was our guide. She is knowledgeable, indifferent, helpful and patient guide. Armine is a real patriot in her hometown. We’ve known much more about past and present times of Armenia. She answered to our meticulous questions, even if we asked what was already heard. To listen to the guide was great pleasure. She is very sociable and professional. We understood Armine perfectly – knowledge of language is in good level.
Driver: We have several drivers. All drivers are distinguished by professionalism, intelligence and politeness. Cars were always reached at the hotel at time without forcing us to wait, drivers always responded to our requests.
Car: Cars that we went by to the excursion were comfortable. The cabin was clean.
Hotel: We liked the hotel, where we lived more than one week. Personnel were very affable, clear rooms, change of clothes on time, good cuisine (we had breakfast at the hotel). Taxi call, route description, any requests – all were done clearly, quickly and with a smile.
What did you like most in your trip? Every day I explored something new. I liked all tours to the churches, monasteries, Sevan Lake, Tsakhkadzor, meetings with interesting people (family of Harry Qeosayan, dolma master class), excursion around the city. I liked Armenian cuisine very much, lunches were unforgettable, and serving personnel was perfect – all was clear, accurate and professional. Sergey Parajanov Museum, pantheon, gallery… We charmed with Yerevan.
What didn’t you like in your trip? There is no disadvantage to write. All was in high level.
What would you add to your trip? I would add in the tour definite visit to the Parajanov Museum. Also, I would like to be in Tatev Monastery – maybe, one day I will come to Armenia again to see it.
Would you recommend our company to your friends? Yes, we’ve already told our friends about our holiday, shared emotions and gave your coordinates.
