Chris Keane

My wife and I traveled to Armenia with Arara tours last month. We spent 2 weeks in the country exploring its capital and regions with so many beautiful mountains, lakes and forests. Our trip was organized by Sati, our local travel agent. She was very punctual, attentive and caring during the whole communication, as well as when we actually got there. Our guide Haikuhi was such a nice young woman with good English and communication skills. She could really deliver the whole information to us in an engaging way. The hotels were mostly nice and comfy. We prefer smaller hotels with calming and comfortable atmosphere. Most hotels in our tour where of this standard and had a great service.
If you wish to cover the whole country without rushing, explore every corner and get to know its history, this trip is just perfect for you.
We are going to recommend Arara tours to anyone interested in visiting the Caucasus. And hope to travel to Georgia and Uzbekistan with you once we have time. Thank you for everything once again!

The trip was just fabulous! So much to mention, I don’t even know where to start. Our guide Haikui and driver Robert were very caring and attentive. Haikui is very energetic, knowledgeable and full of love towards her country. Her engaging way of transferring the information was so interesting and pleasant. And Robert was a safe and professional driver, we really appreciated that.
We liked almost all the hotels included in the tour. Actually we prefer small and cozy hotels more like Armenia guesthouse in Dilijan, that is why some big chain hotels were of less preference. Though they had professional staff and all the facilities inside, this was quite convenient.
Armenia turned out to be an astonishing country with so much to offer! During our trip we were happy to visit many regions which let us catch the unique atmosphere of the country. Ah, and we met so many hospitable locals. They were always so friendly and kind. These experiences were always the best during every trip we had.
We are back to the UK with warmest memories about Armenia and hope to be back to this beautiful part of the world one day. Will recommend Arara to our friends, relatives and anyone interested in visiting Armenia!

I did the 14-day tour to Armenia with Arara. The sightseeing spots included in the tour were amazing and so captivating. The program was very well structured to cover most of Armenia. The team did a great job from beginning till the end. The email correspondence with Tatev went smoothly, she was quick in responding and very flexible during the communication process. I had this professional and experienced guide Arthur, who was amazing in every aspect. I am rather an experienced traveler and have met many tour guides throughout my trips. And I can confidently say that Arthur in Armenia is one of the best. I highly recommend Arara tours and once again want to thank Tatev and the team for making this happen!
