Great day trip to get a glimpse of Armenia. This trip involves a drive through the mountains to Lake Sevan. The scenery ranged from stark and dry, including on a short drive through Azerbaijan, to beautiful autumn colours. The lake was stunning and we visited beautiful old churches on a hill beside the lake. Our guide Serj was very friendly and knowledgeable and we learned a lot from him. Highly recommend

It was a wonderful experience. Our guide, Arthur, was one of the most awesome tour guides we ever met. Extremely knowledgeable about the history of the country and the places we visited, he went out of the way to make us feel comfortable and welcomed. Awesome places, made more awesome by one of the friendliest and most well informed persons we've met.
