This was a pretty average tour. The guide and driver were decent but I had different interests than what the guide's expertise was in. In my experience most of the monasteries look extremely similar, so tours are more about experiencing the countryside around them and getting to talk for an extended period with the guide about their country. The Wings of Tatev gondola ride was fun. At Noravank I really wanted to poke around in some of the many caves surrounding the site, but due to the long drives involved we only had time to visit the main monastery site itself.
