Janny Olsen

Ah! What a trip! We swept luxurious hotels with small guesthouses to spend some time with the locals. Luckily our tour manager could organize it. She took into account all my wishes and I do appreciate it.

The Tavush region is the one that impressed me of all. I mostly liked the Crystal lake, even though in the beginning it was really difficult for me to pronounce this word. There are also some attractions, which we were happy to experience such as the zipline over the lake.

Thank you for the experience, Arara! .

We did the 14 - day exploration tour in Armenia last month and we can only say appreciative words towards Arara tour company. Guys, you did a great job.

The tour manager structured the tour the way that we could cover the most beautiful places of the country. I was really amazed with the mysterious history of the Zvartnots cathedral.

The wine tasting in Areni was fascinating. I have always thought that I am not a wine lover, but it turned out to be the opposite.

Actually we liked all the tour days, but my wife separately mentions Gyumri city. As she is an art lover, we visited and enjoyed a lot of museums.

We recommend this tour to every history and culture lover, believe me, it is really difficult to amaze us, but Arara company managed to do it.
