Wonderful excursion into the landscape, culture and history of Armenia

Our guide Nvard was extremely friendly and charming. Although she speaks English much better than we do, she had a feeling for bringing the history of Armenia so close that we felt well informed. Nvard supplemented historical and geographical facts with legends and stories that enabled us to gain a deeper insight into the culture and way of thinking of the Armenians. We don't want to miss Tigran, our driver, who politely and kindly contributed to the success of the tour. The trip to Garni and Geghard was definitely an enrichment for our stay in Armenia.
