В целом все хорошо, рассказывали интересно, не перегружали сухими фактами, очень приятный водитель. Но экскурсия длилась почему-то 4 часа и части заявленной программы не случилось.

The guide was very kind, I learned a lot from him and you could tell he loved his job. Would totally recommend it !

Cette excursion est sans doute l’une des plus intéressantes que nous avons fait. L’histoire du pays, sa relation à La religion, à l’agriculture et au vin vous est raconté en détail. La visite des cavernes avec son histoire avec l’invasion de Gengis Khan et par la suite des troupes soviétiques... Tout est à prendre avec des anecdotes très intéressantes. Le prix est-il dérisoire par rapport à la qualité de l’excursion. Je termine avec la visite du vignoble avec un vigneron d’une générosité incroyable ! Marie a été une guide fantastique ! Je vous souhaite de la rencontrer.
