Reviews

Thank you Carl for the excellent arrangements. We packed a lot into a short time. Everything went very smoothly. All drivers and guides very good but top marks to your partner in Armenia, who provided us with the highlight of our trip by taking us to a colleague's for New Year's day lunch and to her family for a cooking lesson of traditional dishes on New Year's Eve and family meal. Excellent!

A splendid tour - our guide and driver were wonderful and the family hospitality was amazing. Truly relaxing, although we are both on strict diets now! Thank you.
