Amazing site to behold in person
, Jul 2019
The guide was so literate, and articulate. She knew so much about Armenia, I was completely moved by the experience. I haven’t stopped thinking about the conversation we had. Mt A was breathtaking and the closed border is the most unique situation I’ve ever encountered.
