Armenia is truly an amazing country for tourists, if only more people are aware of it! When we planned our Caucasus vacation, I had to allocate 16 days to three countries, and somehow, we ended up with 7 days in Armenia, 6 days in Georgia and only 3 days in Azerbaijan where we focused on Baku. I cannot tell whether I missed much in Georgia and Azerbaijan, which I probably did, but I can definitely say that the 8 days in Armenia was worth it! The days were filled with eye-opening sights, and the hospitality we experienced were warm and genuine. Armenia is the smallest of the three countries, and yet the history, culture, the food and even the wines are bewitching. All of these were presented beautifully by our guide Vahe Kosakyan, and organized exquisitely by Lusine, who spent endless hours planning, explaining, booking, amending, and amending again to get us the exact specifications right. The trip was as perfect as can be possible, and what we missed (a national dance performance in Yerevan) was not within her control, as it was not in season. Armenia is also a bargain for a tour destination, and it is safe. Your wallet will thank you, your stomach will thank you, and your family will thank you for the wonderful trip that you booked with Arara Tours and its sister company MyGeo (in Georgia).

Guide: I was looking for a private tour while in Tbilisi and Araratour was simply the best choice. Luisine not only they had great recommendations but also from the moment I contacted her I felt special. Luisine addressed all my questions are needs to make my stay in Georgia and Armenia unforgettable experience. The communication was quick and easy, I was provided with all necessary information so that I didn’t need to worry about my tour arrangements making the whole trip seamless. From the moment I left the arrival hall I felt like everything has been taken care for me and I could enjoy my tour has started. Our guide Vasca was very knowledgeable, always helpful and ready to assist. He showed us great spots in Georgia and also recommended bars and restaurants for dinner, frankly he was more like a friend that a tour guide. I had an emergency situation looking for a dentist help and he step in immediately recommending best place to visit and get help. He adjusted our tour so I could get my dentist appointment without any disturbance to our scheduled itinerary. Many thanks for all your help and making my trip to Georgia an unforgettable experience.
Driver: Vasca was punctual, well mannered and helpful

We are already in The United Kingdom and would like to give our special greetings to Liana, our tour manager, who organized a wonderful Gastronomic tour to Armenia and Georgia. We can’t thank enough her for her patience, eagerness to help and quick responses. She was very wonderful and helpful. The tour was amazing, everything was organized in its best. All the wine tastings we had during the tour showed us how rich this two countries can be with their local wine production. Not to mention the dishes, everything was just perfect. We will definitely recommend Arara Tour Company to all our friends and relatives.

Hi Syuzanna,
Thank you for organizing this amazing trip for me and my husband. It’s been a week since we left Georgia, but the memories of our tour are so fresh and mesmerizing that it feels like we are still doing the trip. Thank you very much for making this trip for us, it was a great 10-day-tour and we enjoyed every minute of it. Please send our warm wishes to our Armenian guide, Haykuhi. She was very helpful and provided all the information for us to get acquainted with local people and lifestyle of Armenia. Special thanks to our Georgian guide as well, he was very good at his job. Both guides provided the best service we could imagine. Thank you again for your work and assistance. Hope to visit your lovely country again!

Our Guide Anna, deserves special compliments. She is an excellent guide. The best I've seen in my entire career as a tourist. Rss, rss. A perfect teacher of history, of a professional didactics. The explanations of the story very interesting, that we wanted to hear more and held our attention. In addition to experienced guidance, a teacher who knows what she is talking about with great security and understanding of the subject. I learned a lot with her. It was very cultural and productive and I came back knowing a lot about Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan after these "lessons".
As a bonus, she took us to a well-known candy store in Yerevan, where she used to go as a child, and bought us typical candies and coffee. The place is so old and traditional that it was frequented by his parents and grandparents. During the trips he offered us dates and peanuts with sesame. These pleasures that captivate us and make us want to return.
She took us to several places that were not in the script and we were very pleased. Leon (Levon) was a careful, friendly, helpful and patient driver, stopping for Marta to take pictures of the flowering trees along the road. This is what denotes a good guide. When we go through a beautiful and different building, we tourists, we want to know what is it for, what monument is that, who was this person of the monument, etc.
A good guide not only focuses on what is in the script. He explains what we see along the way, shows what has interesting, curious facts and legends of the place. That pleases us. All the guides helped us choose the dishes from the menu, describing what each one was and the preparation and ingredients they take. This is also very necessary and important for us.
All the drivers were cautious and did not talk on the phone while driving, which I found to be safe and correct. The Toyota Camry was new, confortable and clean.

Dear Syuzanna,
I am back safely in Kuwait. Sorry that we were not able to meet. I was so fascinated with your country that I really spent my time enjoying up to the last hour before I went to the airport for my flight back.
To tell you in details, I liked the following:
1) Your friendly service and accommodating approach. From the beginning that I sent you inquiry up to the last conversation. You were very responsive. Thanks a lot for making my trip excellent!
2) Kantar hostel. Clean and nice hostel just like the reviews from Trip Advisor. Though breakfast every morning was almost all the same. But I still liked it. Friendly and helpful staff as well.
3) Raffy, the driver. He was very welcoming and friendly. He drived safely and came on time for my airport drop.
4) Tours. Very interesting and amazing locations. I enjoyed everything especially in Tsagkhadzor ropeway! Though I have only noticed that all tours were monasteries and old churches. Nevertheless, I still had a great time. If only I can stay longer.
5) Affordable restaurants. I was surprised on how affordable the prices in restaurants. I did not tighten my budget for food as everything was so cheap!
6) Free day. I enjoyed my free days exploring the city by myself. Thanks to your suggestions Syuzanna! I watched the show during the opening of Christmas fair in North Avenue and I even got featured on Please see attached photos.
Meanwhile, I did not like the following:
1) FOOD ON THE TOURS. They should provide a better selection and variety of food. All four days of tour, I felt dismay about the food plus it is not even that delicious to be priced like that. Just being honest.
2) Smoking inside restaurants. I was totally irritated with the smoke in every restaurants.
However, in summary, I had a fantastic vacation. I would love to come back again next time and will be getting in touch with your agency when it happens. Definitely, I will refer you to my friends.

Thanks once again and all the best!
