Despite only two people going on the tour, the guide was always enthusiastic. His English is excellent and the route was really well prepared.

Wonderful day! The tour stops were carefully chosen and we never would have found them on our own. We will be going back to revisit them before we leave Yerevan. Feel like we learned so much and would highly recommend.
