Hi there Tatev, I am sad to be back home. It goes without saying that the tour to Armenia and Georgia was unforgettable. Arara tours was very professional, they were accommodating and responsive to my requests. The hotels were centrally located and had good service. I absolutely loved the food in both countries. I can not wait to go back and visit other parts of both Armenia and Georgia. If you are interested in ancient history and unique cultures, I would definitely recommend booking this tour.
We returned home safe and sound. The trip was wonderful. The old churches and monasteries were mesmerizing. My wife and I traveled a lot throughout our life but I can assure you that this trip was one of the best trips that we ever had. The hospitality of the locals, the delicious food and the beautiful nature are some of the things that we will not forget for a long time. Highly recommend your company.
Hello Tatev, the tour was astonishing. I can definitely say that Armenia is the most underrated country I have ever been to. I have traveled a lot in Western Europe and once when I was in Paris, I met an Armenian woman. It was my first encounter with an Armenian. She was proudly telling me how beautiful and special her country is. She inspired me to go and visit your ancient but yet magical country. Our tour went smoothly from start to finish. Quite strange but I have to say I’m mostly impressed by people, so friendly and hospitable. I enjoyed meeting the locals in the villages, cooking food with them, this made our tour experience more enjoyable.
Hope to be back soon.
I am delighted to write this review because I can not keep my emotions to myself. I have never traveled outside of North America and I am so happy I did. It was quite an experience. My family was a bit concerned about my tour to a region that far, but with Arara tours I had a peace of mind the whole time. I must say, as someone who loves to take photos, I have taken so many of them during my trip. The hotels were really good and in the city centers, I especially enjoyed the view from Brim hotel. The tour guides were really knowledgeable and good at their work, especially in Georgia and Armenia, and they kindly answered all my questions. They were proud to show their countries and were very enthusiastic while telling the history. Thank you Hasmik for the great recommendations for restaurants and for joining me for dinner.
Hello Emma, Our flights went very well and we returned very tired. The trip was quite special. We have traveled a lot, but I don’t think I have ever taken so many photos. So many interesting things we saw and places we visited: Ancient monasteries and relics and manuscripts!
The days were long but worth every minute.
The Hotel Sandali was very nice, especially the roof terrace.And our guide in Armenia was terrific. Altogether a great trip.
I am wishing for peace for Armenia now,
Hello Sati, I loved the tour of Azerbaijan Georgia and Armenia. My favourite country is Armenia. I loved the mountains and countryside. Guide Raffi was full of fun and very knowledgeable. The Armenian people are kind, honest and gentle souls. I bought some beautiful silver jewelry for presents for my family.
So really no big criticism at all. But I will say that I did not like the 3 star hotel in Tel Avi. It was too far away from town, restaurants etc.
A picnic lunch in the countryside would be nice. I would have liked a stop at one of the small town World War 2 memorials to pay tribute to our allies in WW2.
Once again Sati, thank you so much for organizing a wonderful holiday for me.

Good morning Emma, Just to say I had a wonderful time, thank you for all your work, you are a credit to Araratours, Regards
Hi Ruslan, I am finally home and I have to say even though it was a tiring tour, it was a very comprehensive one. Within just 30 days, we saw so much and I was impressed by the beauty of all three countries. Special thanks to our tour guide in Armenia who arranged an extra visit for us to the Symphony of Stones in Garni Gorge even though it was not included in the tour.
Hi Sati, it was such a pleasure to go to the 5Stans and Caucasus with my grandpa and we both had a fantastic time. I have to admit we knew almost nothing about your region, but we both got amazingly surprised that each country has so much to offer with its unique culture, sites, architecture. The tour was organized very well. The itinerary included everything that we were looking for and the guides were very knowledgeable. I also want to thank you for going above and beyond to satisfy all our needs. I know we were picky with our special requests, you did everything to accommodate us. Thank you for the flexibility and hard work. We will certainly share our impressions about the tour experience with friends and recommend your company.

Overall our trip went very well. We enjoyed the places we visited in all three countries. A few points that could have been better organised. 1 Lunch breaks should be short so especially on a long day like Day 8 which has very interesting sites in a long day. 2 The Tours could have started at 9.00 instead of 10.00 especially when long distances are involved. 3. The Hotels Molokai Inn in Baku and Sheki were excellent. The Hotel In Tiblisi was good. Thank you for organising the Gluten Free breakfast in Yerevan but most of the receptionists at Hotel Metropol did not communicate well in English. Special mention for Raffi in Yerevan who went out of his way to help us and was very well organised. I would gladly recommend Arara Tours to my friends and look forward to using your services again in the future.

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!
