Ewa James 06.08.2018

Hello,
We are really pleased with the trip. I do include here the service you provided organising everything for us as well as a very knowledgeable and professional guide/driver. Avet was really great and knew how to show us the sites in their best, avoiding crowds and getting the best light of the day.
Your communication to me was very responsive and accommodating. I’d rate it as high as any good service I’d expect to receive in the U.K. We were taken by surprise with generosity and quality of food (and wine:). I’d definitely use your service again if I am lucky to return to Armenia in the future.

Kind regards
