Rich and Ali's trip of perfection

Beautiful, stunning countryside, amazing monasteries, delicious vegetarian food. Very comfortable B & Bs, Excellent guide. Would love to go back. Very very good communications with Armine; she always replied quickly to respond to our queries. Excellent, all excellent.
Best parts:
Oh my gosh .... it was all wonderful. Musher, our driver guide was excellent as a guide, a caring person and a good driver. All the accommodations were clean. comfortable and quiet. We met great people. The schedule was a perfect balance between travelling and hiking, visiting the points of interest and having 'free time'. Delicious food.
Worst parts:
There was nothing that was 'worst'. Maybe the last day was, for us, just a little too long in the car but it was broken up with about 4 visits to points of interest. We had arranged to visit a cheese maker to have a 'master class' but when we got there he'd finished. Never mind, we had a wonderful lunch and he told us a lot about beee keeping and cheeses making. He had a beautiful garden.

Our group was three couples. We requested a 10 day trip where we would change hotels a max of three times. Also, we wanted our transportation to have AC and WiFi. The agent, Armine, delivered with an outstanding trip. It was fabulous.
Best parts:
Our travel agent, Armine, did an outstanding job in curating our vacation. The guide, Gayane, was absolutely superb.
Worst parts:
We did not care for one of the properties, but it was our request to have a hotel with a spa and that hotel was the only one in that town that offered a spa.

Thank you for your feed back! See you around the world!

We loved the destinations, and the uniqueness they provided us. We also really enjoyed the variety of activities, along with the personal touches the guides and drivers gave us. We loved feeling that we were being fully attended to by our guides and drivers. The lunches with families were one of our favorite activities.
Best parts:
Armine, the travel agent, was incredibly prompt in addressing any of our concerns and resolving issues that arose during the trip. The tour guides were knowledgeable, personable, and made the trip an absolute delight. The schedule was well organized, and transitions among activities were seamless and flawless. Gevansa, our guide in Georgia, was amazing - we can't say enough good things about her!
Worst parts:
We should have asked for estimated tour times for each day. We felt many of our days ended way too early, and we would have preferred to have added more to our itinerary. Additionally, we should have done more research as some of the places we visited sounded like we'd enjoy ourselves, but it turned out we didn't. For example, we totally could have skipped 2 nights in Dilijan, Armenia. And we signed up to visit way too many monasteries in both Armenia and Georgia for our tastes. After the first 2 or 3 they all blurred together.

Armenia is currently an excellent place to visit. It has diverse landscapes, beautiful flora, and interesting birdlife. The people are friendly, food delicious, and facilities are all good.
Best parts:
Visited a wide variety of landscapes and sites thus getting a great overview of the country. No excessively long road trips were involved. Really great guide who did her very best to ensure that we had an excellent tour. All of the accommodation and meals were fine, and of a high standard. Managed to see a reasonable selection of birdlife. Overall a really great trip, and your assistance in achieving this was much appreciated
Worst parts:
Our vehicle was designed in such a way that it was impossible to open the passenger doors from inside; the driver had to get out of the vehicle in order to open the doors (rather like a police car). Also, it was not possible to open any rear windows. This created a bit of a problem and was somewhat unsafe, and I strongly recommend that vehicles should have doors that can be opened from inside, also openable rear windows.

I enjoyed a lot the visits to the old Monasteries, The breakfast in the morning at the top terrace of the Hotel with a beautiful view of Mount Ararat, the walks in the streets of Yerevan at night,. the Khachaturian's Gayaneh Opera at the Opera House in Yerevan..
Best parts:
Armenia has a deeply rooted Christian Heritage from the 4th Century and on... Yerevan has a modern well designed town plan with all it's public gardens and streets and public buildings... The organizers of the trip did an excellent Job showing us what actually the country is with it's good and less developped parts...

Armenia is a beautiful country so rich in history and culture and with very friendly inhabitants. We had a lovely 10-day trip discovering the country of our ancestors and look forward to visiting again soon. We'd like to especially thank Mariana, Hasmik our excellent tour guide and Garen, our driver who all made this vacation memorable.
Best parts:
This trip was excellent mainly thanks to our tour guide who was very professional, knowledgeable, and always eager to show us her home country and answer all our questions. The visits were interesting and allowed us to explore both Yerevan and smaller towns in the countryside. We really enjoyed the beautiful landscapes, the ancient ruins, the unique monasteries, many churches, and the local cuisine. Finally, the hotel was also excellent: we stayed in a large room and a healthy breakfast was served every morning.
Worst parts:
We enjoyed all aspects of this trip and there was no negative part.

Well balanced and organised trip by the local agent in Armenia + flexibility of the guide and driver to adapt the program in function of the weather conditions or religious celebration. As the trip in Armenia went so well, we had high expectations when we arrived in Georgia but we were disappointed by the organisation of the trip.
Best parts:
Landscapes, visits, food (in particular lunch with locals in Armenia), our guide and driver, the people (especially in Armenia)
Worst parts:
Georgia: we realised once arrived that it was Easter (orthodox) and that some sites were close and that we had to cancel some visits. We are disappointed in the organisation as we feel that it could have been avoided (we planned this trip months ago and the local agent should have checked and told us what was possible/not possible to visit during Easter) Accommodation: lack of information about the type of room booked (ie no window in Tbilissi)

My husband and I have traveled to 69 countries now and I have always had to find a private tour and guide on my own. Then I discovered Evaneos. All of the trips on this site look to be amazing so we chose to travel to Georgia and Armenia. What an excellent choice that was. Highlights included: seeing the glacier and the Black Sea In Georgia, visiting Tbilisi (a favorite city), seeing the many, many unique Monasteries, driving through the Caucasus Mts, learning the history of both countries and meeting so many warm and interesting people. It was a unique and amazing journey.
Best parts:
I loved the fact that though we were visiting two countries, Georgia & Armenia, the trip was seamless. We started in Georgia, then traveled to Armenia being passed off at the border with the next guide waiting for us. It was easy, quick, and so successful. There were so many highlights it would be difficult to list them all. Nothing negative as it all flowed according to plan from the pick up to the drop off 16 days later.
Worst parts:
Nothing to note. Astghik did everything she could to make this trip amazing. We had amazing guides, drivers and weather. Rain just one day. Loved our Armenian guide/driver, Armen. He was the best of the best. He is funny, steady, a true tour guide. Do yourself a favor and have a guide besides a driver who speaks English. You will learn so much more with a personal guide. In Georgia we had a guide and driver and in Armenia, Armen was both wrapped up in one.

7 days in Armenia and 7 in Georgia. Self driving tour around both countries
Best parts:
My trip was a self driven tour including Armenia and Georgia. Mariana, the local travel agent, provided me with an extraordinary service, even beyond the expected. Just as an example, I have a small accident with my rented car, she help me with the car agency to have a quick response and a replacement car almost immediately. I would happily recommend Mariana to organize your trip

I wish i went earlier in year because weather was good on some days and not so good on others. Definitely going back.
Worst parts:
The weather was hazy so couldn’t see mountains clearly.

Armenia & Georgia provide a most interesting destination. History, current affairs, political interest in addition to religious sites, modern developments, spectacular geography. Roads are poor in some areas, but still worth the effort. Food and drink are different, interesting and good quality.
Best parts:
Guides / Drivers were high quality / well educated. Experiences were well varied, we were given good exposure to local food and drink, a good mix of quality hotels + smaller places. Lunches were of excellent quality on most days.
Worst parts:
On some days the travel was disproportionately long. Lunch venues were prebooked, so on occasions we arrived around 3pm...whereas if guides had had discretion on where to stop timings could have been improved. Original vehicle was good quality, but this was replaced after 3 days with an older vehicle which was older and less comfortable . (Drivers were excellent)

The best moment of my trip was the day of tracking around MESTIA . Thanks to the Georgian Agency's flexibility, we could exchange the program of one day ( with bad wether) with the following one with sunshine
Best parts:
Everthing . The assistance by the local agency (I.e. In Armenia with Astghik),the drivers the hotels in Yerevan and TBILISI and the guest houses WITH PRIVATE BATHROOMS.
Worst parts:
Maybe... the difficult communication with the drivers. The trip to Kaspegi (only one day with bad whether). Better to stay one or days more in only one maintain place ( Kasbegi or MESTIA)
