I had an amazing educational experience on the Caucasian Tour. Exploring the history of these three countries was eye-opening, revealing new information I wasn't aware of previously. This journey has broadened my perspective significantly. Altay, our Azerbaijan guide, was a walking Google, always equipped with answers and an iPad for reference. His dedication to teaching us about Azerbaijan's history and culture was remarkable, including well-timed "technical stops" for deeper insights. Ani, our Armenia guide, was equally impressive in sharing her extensive knowledge of Armenian history and religion, bolstered by her strong educational background. She even pleasantly surprised us with treats like candies and fruits along the way. Sophie was attentive and considerate to our needs throughout. All three guides were exceptional fountains of information, showcasing their countries with immense pride and passion. I'm truly thankful for the opportunity to expand my horizons!

My family and I took this trip in May. The locals warmly welcomed us sharing stories and
challenges of living in such a remote land. The genuine hospitality of these people added an
extra charm to our journey. The guesthouse in Omalo was well chosen, nothing luxurious,
everything was very simple and local, but the breakfast was amazing!
We had 2 guides, Tazo and his brother who were so supportive and professional, and funny.
One of the highlights of the tour was visiting historical castles which have stood tall for
centuries. These architectural marvels not only provided us with a glimpse into Tusheti's history
but also offered panoramic views of the surrounding landscapes that left us humbled.
One potential challenge during the tour was the rugged terrain and unpredictable bad weather.
However, Tazo was well-prepared and provided us with raincoats and hot tea.
Our contact person Zara organized everything smoothly․ Overall, our tour was a great
experience and I highly recommend everyone to use Arara.

One of my best decisions this year was to trust Arara organizing my trip. I had the pleasure of
participating in an 8-day tour of the southwestern regions of Georgia.
Firstly I was very pleased with the way Mariam treated each member of our group individually
and greeted us with chocolates at the airport.
The tour was well organized ensuring that we made the most of the short time. One of our stops
was the picturesque town of Borjomi, and we loved the mineral springs. Another of my personal
highlights was Akhaltsikhe Castle with extraordinary architectural solutions.
The tour was a good choice for me as I don’t like capital cities which are always overcrowded,
not to mention Tbilisi heavy traffic, which I simply hated.
I must single out our guide Temo who made the tour even more enjoyable with his interesting
and funny stories about the area.
What I didn’t like was changing so many hotels from place to place. I appreciate this was the
only way of covering the area to the fullest. The whole trip was a truly beautiful experience.

Hi Sati Thanks for your email and for arranging the driver. Thank you for the wonderful trip. Everything was up to expectation except for one thing which was out of your control. I won't name it but it was a personality thing. Absolutely nothing to do with your company.

Thanks again,

Timothy Smith

We enjoyed the trip very much and the range and location of the hotels was great. The Callisto in Baku was particularly nice.
Guides were great and we had some memorable experiences.
Thank you so much for all the assistance you have provided.

My daughter and I took the Classical tour to Georgia in 8 days. Georgia was a discovery for us, where we met a combination of old and new cultures. The cities were full of interesting places and fascinating sites that made the trip just beautiful. I wish we had also taken some days to hike in the mountains, as the views and nature were simply amazing. The program ran smoothly, the daily tours and lunch stops were well-organized. One thing I would like to recommend is upgrading to 4* hotels before the trip. Our hotel location was good, but we needed more comfort and an upgrade would have been helpful. The breakfasts were nice but there was not enough variety. Sophie was very knowledgeable and interesting. We are not a fan of dates and numbers, instead prefer local stories, interesting facts on the history and past. She catched this immediately and made our time the most memorable. . Thanks Arara for a beautiful journey.

Me and my friend spent an amazing time in Georgia during our short but adventurous trip. It was fun to see Shatili and its unique architectural styles. In addition to enjoying the breathtaking scenes of the country, we were satisfied with the choice of hotels and guesthouses. Some of the guesthouses were family run, which was exactly what we wanted to experience. One thing I would note is choose wisely when to travel to this area. The weather might let you down. Our guide Tazo and driver Giorgi were friendly and helpful. Giorg helped us with our luggage every time and remained a professional during the heavy city traffic or comprehensive routes. I will recommend your company and using your services.

Dear Tatev, Thank you for your support. It is only a small problem in the scheme of things.
We are happy to move tomorrow into another room. The location of the hotel is great.
We have had the best experience travelling from Baku to Yerevan. I shared our wonderful day to day excursion on fb with all my friends and family in Australia and it is fair to say that they all enjoyed our trip. The tour guides have been excellent. All so knowledgeable and approachable. We have been so lucky indeed, so privileged to visit the Caucasus. Not to forget the amazing drivers, navigating their way up and down high mountain roads. Also navigating their way through heavy traffic in the capital cities. I don’t know how they do it......

We will indeed enjoy our last day tomorrow.

Talk soon.
Warm regards
Eva and Tony
