Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 3 reviews

We appreciated how the tour company messaged us before the day of the trip to welcome us and review the itinerary. The driver showed up right on time and was pleasant and professional. It's important to note that most drivers won't speak English so you may only smile and point to communicate. We were blown away with how magnificent each landmark was. We were given as much time to explore as we wanted. It's also important to note that the driving culture is a bit different than what you may be used to. There's a lot of passing in single lanes and the roads are a bit bumpy; however, you are in very safe hands! I only write that to suggest to anyone who is sensitive to motion to maybe take something before as you'll be driving for hours. I highly recommend this tour!!!

Very interesting tour

Tour organized for us by Yerani was very interesting. The guide had extensive knowledge and told us a lot of interesting facts about history of Armenia and places we had visited. Bus was very comfortable.

I really enjoyed the trip. Our guide Tigran was very knowledgeable and the driving was safe (unfortunately I forgot the diver's name!).

Very diligent and caring girl-guide Ward and driver Levon. They told and showed a lot, helped in everything

Professional guide Ward and attentive driver Leva worked with us. We really enjoyed.
