Just a short note to say that we enjoyed our time in the Caucasus very much and wished we had had a few more days. The hotels you selected in Hagpat and Gori were both very comfortable and the staff helpful. In Hagpat we appreciated that they allowed us to have breakfast at 8AM when it is not normally served until 9 which helped us to see some additional sights.
All 3 of our guides Ruslan, Avet and Vazha were terrific, flexible (as we changed our plans a little on some days) and very thoughtful. We spent the most time with Vazha and we appreciated the many small touches that he brought to that part of the trip.
As you know we had to cancel the night in Kazbegi due to the weather and road conditions but that turned out quite nicely as we still saw the mountains and gained an extra day in Tbilisi.
Finally, I had been concerned that coming over the holiday period things would be a bit quiet but in fact they were very lively and enjoyable in all locations with the lovely Christmas decorations everywhere.
I might mention also the experience on the train, if you are booking for others. The train itself was very comfortable but for us, not used to the hot temperatures that people like to heat their houses in Europe, the train was too hot for sleeping which meant we were more tired than expected when we arrived in Tbilisi.
Please pass on our thanks and good wishes to all 3 of our guides and to the 2 hotels and thanks again to you for making the arrangements in such a professional manner.

Apologies for not getting back to you for so long.
The 2-week trip you arranged for us to Armenia and Georgia, leaving end of July 2018, was excellent.
The accommodation was extremely good throughout. The drivers and guides were also excellent; Hasmik Evoyan was outstanding.
We had a lovely two weeks.

Me and my husband had a lovely time in Armenia & Georiga. Arthur was our guide in Armenia and Demetre traveled with us in Georgia, both spoke good English and answered our questions. Everything was perfectly organized. My highlight was (unfortunately) the delicious food. Thanks again and good luck to you!

We had an excellent hiking trip through Armenia. Our guide took great care of us. I am still touched by the hospitality of locals and their delicious home made food. Totally recommend it!

A fantastic tour with great insight. The extension to Azerbaijan is totally worth it once you're already in the region. My personal highlights were the breathtaking scenery in Armenia and Georgia.
Had a wonderful time traveling through the Caucasus. Personally I was surprised by the vast cultural differences in the three small countries. My personal highlight was the view from Mt. Kasbegi

Individual trekking tour 13.07.2018
Guide: Ashot was our guide during the entire tour. He told us about Armenia and Armenian people with heart and humor. We felt very well cared for.
Driver: Ashot was also our driver. His driving style was safe and confident, especially considering that not all the road in Armenia are easy for driving. During our trekking tours Vahe accompanied us as a jeep driver. He did a great job.
Car: The car and the jeep were technically in order and well maintained.
Hotels: The hotels were all well selected and the food was always delicious.
What did you like best? The journey was very varied and informative. It was an individual tour for 2 persons. All our wishes were taken into acount. The mountains of Armenia and the hospitality of the people impressed us a lot.
What were you not satisfied with? There were no problems or reasons for complaints.
Would you recommend us? Yes, sure. Everything was perfect. Many thanks
