This excursion is without doubt one of the most interesting that we have done. The history of the country, its relation to religion, agriculture and wine is told to you in detail. The visit of the caves with its history with the invasion of Genghis Khan and subsequently the Soviet troops ... Everything is to be taken with very interesting anecdotes. The price is it derisory compared to the quality of the excursion. I end with a visit to the vineyard with a winemaker of incredible generosity! Marie was a fantastic guide! I wish you to meet her.

We had a really great day with Alexiv. The sights were very interesting, especially in the early morning sunlight of sunrise and Alexiv did a wonderful job of explaining them to us. He was a safe driver, very friendly and patient and a pleasure to be with. The cave sight was cool to visit but you have to be in good shape, have great balance and be a good climber to do it.
