TRIP REVIEWS (9)

Martha Sanchez

Hello Tatev, the tour was astonishing. I can definitely say that Armenia is the most underrated country I have ever been to. I have traveled a lot in Western Europe and once when I was in Paris, I met an Armenian woman. It was my first encounter with an Armenian. She was proudly telling me how beautiful and special her country is. She inspired me to go and visit your ancient but yet magical country. Our tour went smoothly from start to finish. Quite strange but I have to say I’m mostly impressed by people, so friendly and hospitable. I enjoyed meeting the locals in the villages, cooking food with them, this made our tour experience more enjoyable.

Hope to be back soon.
