What did you like best in your trip? Liana at Arara did an amazing job to plan our trip.  We saw so much and had a great balance of ancient archaeological sites, medieval monasteries, days in the country and days to explore the city and do some shopping!  Our lunches were fabulous and plentiful!
What didn't you like in trip? Nothing-it was well planned and great!
What would you add to your trip? Possibly add to your information when booking hotels if a non-smoking room/floor is requested. Our first room in Yerevan wreaked of smoke and apparently a person in a neighboring room smoked several times during the night which somehow came into our room. We aren't used to that and it gave my roommate a bad headache and both of us had sore throats from the smoke. The hotel had no other rooms available for several days, but the cleaning staff tried to help us.
Guide: Ara was fabulous--so knowledgeable, and fun. He was a working archaeologist and a college professor so knew most of the workers and what was happening on the sites. She knew more about the artifacts in the museum than many of the guides! Ara always did a little extra to ensure we had a memorable time, including breaking into song inside old monasteries!! He was fluent in many languages. This trip (between our guide and driver) was like traveling with two friends or family.
Driver: He was the most considerate, kind gentleman who constantly was there to help us. He was always on time or early, was very safe, and helpful. Always went way beyond his job.
Car: The car was very comfortable,safe and reliable.
Hotels: Most were above expectations. Once when we were out in the country for one night only, we stayed in a place that wasn't as good. It was clean and comfortable but the owners were very abrupt and not helpful. We had to trudge our suitcases through rain and potholes to a different building, up stairs and breakfast was skimpy. ALL the other places were wonderful, good breakfasts, clean and working facilities.
Would you recommend our company to your friends? I would and have. Excellent job!  Thank you for making our trip so memorable and perfect.

Verna Valdez

Guide: She should be more informative, she seems to be not used to be in her work, she doesn't give us more time to see each places it was like she was rushing all the time. We are tourists so she should allow us to take more photos. We wish we could have other tour guide that time.
Driver: The driver was helpful though at times he drives so fast.
Car: The car was excellent!
Hotels: Our hotel though was not book at arara tours was very good. It was a small but clean hotel.
What did you like best in your trip? The places we've been, they were extra ordinary. The food as well are very good plus the wines.
What didn't you like in trip? The tour guide.
What would you add to your trip? We would have love to see wine making.
Would you recommend our company to your friends? Yes definitely.

"Arara" Company's response: Dear Verna, thank you for your feedback. We appreciate your opinion and won't work with this guide anymore.

Thank you for the nice days spent in divine Armenia. I met all my expectations and my old dream to visit Armenia came true. Everything was immaculate – I say it with all my responsibility as I am an experienced traveler. Experienced guide showed her love to the motherland and attention to the guests, the dinner in restaurants was delicious etc. Especially touching was the farewell dinner in the restaurant "Yerevan Tavern": a full table, the program, sweet face of Armine and dear faces of our group members.

Thank you for a good tour, special thanks to guide: an excellent guide! Smart, broad-minded, can answer to any question about history and other spheres, a professional in her field, tolerant, and just a nice person! All our team was satisfied and thanked me and you! And of course, we hope to visit Armenia in other season and see all that we haven't managed yet. We liked Armenia very much! It is a beautiful country with hospitable people. We were not able to visit Zvartnots as it was closed. So everything is still ahead. Thanks again.

Best regards,

Hotels: Cascade Hotel was in an excellent location in Yerevan, and their breakfast was good. The family at B&B in Goris was very friendly. The breakfast was simple.
What would you add to your trip? Nune was also very helpful and always responded to my e-mails the same day. Your feedback about your guide: I was afraid that we would not be able to see Tatev Monastary because of the weather, but Ara, our driver/guide was an amazing driver.  He made our trip very special.  He was very patient and accommodating. He taught us about Armenia culture and answered all of questions.  I really felt like we made a new friend. Your feedback about your driver: Ara had brand new tires which came in handy with the snow.  The car was clean and comfortable.
What did you like best in your trip? Arara travel company created the best itinerary for my husband and me.   We saw beautiful monasteries surrounded gorgeous landscapes. My favorite place was Tatev Monastery. I also love Geghard Monastery and Noravank Monastery.
What didn't you like in trip? I loved every thing about the trip, but my least favorite stop was at Jermuk. I liked it, but it cannot be compared to the other amazing sites.
Would you recommend our company to your friends? Absolutely!  We had a wonderful vacation and want to come back soon. 

Thank you!

My wife and I had booked our Armenian holiday through Arara Tour and we are glad that we got Arthur as our host and guide. There are so many things to talk about him as he made our holiday so pleasant and complete. Firstly he was very punctual, he always arrived at the right time and made sure we got to see and do everything according to our jammed packed itinerary. We did not have to bother about looking into our itinerary as Arthur made sure we did all the stuff as planned and even more. He was very trustworthy as we were quite skeptical and unsure of how the guide experience would be in Armenia. Overall, Arthur was very hospitable and he made us experience the true essence of Armenian culture.

If you are traveling to Armenia, make sure to book Arthur as your guide.
