Benjamin and Rose Jobs

Hi Ruslan, we are overall very satisfied with the tour. The locals in both countries were warm and welcoming. We felt like we were part of their communities, and we made some wonderful memories. The traditional food was a real delight, and we tried some unique dishes that we'll always remember. I also want to mention that there was a big accident on our way to Tatev but our driver was able to skillfully bypass the traffic. Our drivers and guides were great in both countries.

Hello Tatev,we are finally back home after the long flights.  Armenia and Georgia are beautiful countries, and we got to see stunning landscapes, historic churches, and charming villages. The tour guides were knowledgeable and made history come alive for us. But, if there's one thing that bothered us a bit, it was the traffic in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. It can get quite busy, especially during rush hours, and that made some parts of our city tours a bit slow. However, this is a minor issue compared to the overall experience. The highlight of our trip was the wine tasting. Both Armenia and Georgia have a long history of winemaking, and we got to taste some exceptional wines.

Thank you Arara for organizing this amazing tour for me! Both countries offer delicious cuisine, warm hospitality, breathtaking landscapes, and rich culture! So if you are thinking of traveling to Armenia and Georgia, I absolutely recommend it. Our guide Sophie in Georgia and Raffi in Armenia were just amazing, both very organized and nice. Also, thanks to my tour manager Sati who kindly joined me for dinner on my last free day in Yerevan. We had a nice time there and talked for a few hours. It’s always nice to meet locals when you travel. Thanks for amazing memories!
