Again, Thanks to Tatev Travel Agency...

Again, Thanks to Tatev Travel Agency for providing us with an Exceptional Tour guide! While touring the Geghard Monastery we were blessed to be able to take part in a small spiritual ceremony. A definite bonus! The landscape at the Garni Temple was breathtaking. And lastly, we were able to get a nice view of Mt. Ararat in between both places. This tous is a MUST!
