Olga Scheglova

Thank you for a great tour, also special thanks to Armine – perfect guide! She is professional, literate and broad-minded who can answer to any question about history and other related fields. Also, she is tolerated, very pleasant and nice person. All were satisfied and thanked to me and you. Of course, we hope to meet in another season in Armenia for seeing those what couldn’t been seen this time, and which was seen, to see again in other colours. We liked Armenia very much! It is very beautiful country and has good hospitable nation. By the way, we didn’t visit Zvartnots because our guide Armine told it didn’t work. So, everything is still ahead. Many thanks.

Best regards,

Olga
