Irina Shevchenko

Guide: Perfect! He knows Russian language excellent, tells understandable and interesting, has ability of listening tourists: in which level and which information is especially important. The guide George is ‘excellent’! Very erudite and competent. Clever man!
Driver: Super! Our guide was also driver.
Car: It was comfortable. No remarks!
Hotel: Cascade is definitely perfect! But Goris is still in the process of running. Its staff is good and there is potential to grow. It needs time to complete all constructed works.
What did you like most in your trip? Local people
What didn’t you like in your trip? There is nothing.
What would you add to your trip? Tour programme was full, varied and highly qualified. There is nothing to add – all time was used to the maximum. We just need to come for a longer period, then we can catch more.
Would you recommend our company to your friends? Definitely, yes!

Hello, Dear Liana!
I would like to thank you for an excellent organised tour. All was perfect: accommodation, meals and programme. Drivers Hovik and Spartak are not only masters of their work, but also very sincere and respectful people. The guide Armine is above all praise. Little mountainous Armenia left a great warmth of impression in our hearts. Wish you prosperity and welfare!

Many thanks!
