TRIP REVIEWS (7)

Charles Louis

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
How can I begin as every day was wonderful. Probably he best walk was on our 3rd day when we walked up to the castle and then down and up again to the monastery and then on the way down walked with a herd of cows who seemed to enjoy our company.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
Bring gaiters if you are to hike Mt Aragat, I found my walking poles invaluable, make sure you have good waterproof hiking boots - we had no rain so I can't speak to rainwear needs though I brought them with me.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
Not really though we always took our food wrappers and other trash with us. Driving by van was essential but it's not environmentally positive!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
For me 10 out of 10! Ara was a great guide who was very knowledgeable and always made sure I was safe.

Araratour was outstanding (five stars) in every aspect. They were responsive, helpful and flexible in making arrangements via internet prior to our arrival in Yerevan, and the tour itself couldn't have been better. We enjoyed every moment of it. Thanks again, Tatev!
