What people are saying about Garni

This was quite simply a superb tour. Nvard , our guide, was knowledgeable, informative and an excellent communicator. She has a deep knowledge of Armenian culture & history and shares it in an understated yet appropriate way. She also has an extraordinary singing voice! I could not recommend this tour highly enough. It us the perfect length, brings you to fascinating places and gives you some insight into the history & culture of this amazing country.

The Garni and Geghard route is an excellent half day excursion if you want to see more of Armenia and it’s history outside of Yerevan. But the real gem of this tour is the guide. Nvard’s knowledge and passion in sharing her great country is unmatched, friendly and professional. Highly recommend!

Very good excursion with the visit of three sites very well commented by our guide two groups an English-speaking group and a Russian-speaking group the restaurant where we ate was great :) everything went well to recommend

Excellent trip. Friendly, informative and talented (she can also hold a note! )! The driver was also excellent, he drove very cautiously and I felt completely safe the whole time.

Very nice day with impressive clever woman guide, highlighted by day of the event (Armenian Independence day) and emotional little private performance during lunch. I was touched.
