    The trip was fantastic and extremely very well planned by the agency. We had the opportunity to see all the sights listed on the tour as well as culturally immerse ourselves in dolma making. The guide was very knowledgable about the places we went to, and could answer nay and every question we asked. Would highly recommend this tour to others.
