TRIP REVIEWS (9)

Douglas Fenton

From the time of our arrival in Armenia we were treated generously by all: transfer driver, hotel staff, guides and certainly Arthur. He is such a warm, kind, transparent fellow who is both knowledgeable about his country’s history, culture, religion and the many challenges it has endured. Throughout his comments were balanced and fair. Arthur is an exceedingly honourable man.

All hotels were good except the hotel by the lake in Sevan was perhaps a little too rustic. The view was great but the accommodation and food were not what we had come to expect. I’m sure it’s perfect for a summer holiday.

Upon crossing the border to Armenia we were met by the remarkable Tazo. He transferred us to Tbilisi and over the next several days showed us the history, culture, and religious life of the country. We had a great pleasure in meeting a 7th generation family of vintners and have a meal and an afternoon learning about wine making. It was a five-star experience.

Our best hotel was in Tevali at the Holiday Inn—it was a superb property. I would not recommend Tiflis in Tbilisi. The staff are charming, the rooms clean, but the walls very thin and the guests loud and obnoxious at all hours of the night. It was our own real disappointment and left us without rest for the next day.

I cannot leave without commending Tatev on facilitating our great trip even with the long wait through Covid.

The tour went well. The guides were able to adjust to our unusual requirements (give us the info about the sites before we arrive) and they were fun, friendly and flexible.Sophie had no knowledge of the request to bring small denomination Georgian lari, but it wasn't a huge problem. The vehicles were clean, modern and were driven well, after we requested the drivers not to take phone calls while driving. (In our countries, it is illegal to use the phone while driving).

Accommodations were mostly nice.

Thanks for making the tour happen. We would recommend ARARA to our friends.

Best regards,
