This was my favourite tour because it was just my friend and I, with a guide and driver. Our guide was exceptional, she spoke excellent English and knew so much about the places we visited. The lake and monastery were stunning, especially since everything was snow-covered... real picture-postcard scenery! The mountains are so beautiful and the cable car allows great views. The second monastery is also fascinating. I recommend this trip! Only downside... I was worried about our guide not wearing a seatbelt the whole journey... I should have said something but was too British about it. So much safer for everyone in the vehicle if everyone is strapped in!
The trip was wonderful it was the best trip I have been on. The tour guide Nvard and out driver Tigran were the best ever. They were both very knowledgeable and the tour was awesome. I reccommend this tour for everyone. This tour included the hotel, food and entrance fees. I was very impressed and I am planning on going back to Armenia again. Just make sure that you ask for Nvard as your tour guide, she is the best. I felt at home with them and we still keep in touch. I love Nvard and Tigran.
Another perfect tour guided by Nvard! Aside from volunteering as my photographer, she also paid for all the entrance fees. She even emailed me my photos, which is great!
First off, Lake Sevan is breath-taking even it was raining when we got there. Yip, the weather is crazy..it's changing like every 5 minutes! It rains, then it gets sunny then it will just pour..hailstorm even! So bring with you winter jacket with hoodies, and wear comfortable sneakers! It was Sunday when we went there, and we were lucky to have witness their mass in the chapel.
As for Tzakhkadzor ropeway, it was a great experience for me as a first timer. It is an open seat/ride. It's like riding in a theme park ride, only that it is slow so you can admire the sceneries around you. All the mountains with snow in the vicinity are soothing for the eyes and senses.
Kecharis Monastery is indeed one of Armenian treasure, one of their 101 monasteries! A monastery that is strong enough to still stand since year BC until now.
Nvard, the tour guide is such a nice lady. She speaks English well and is very knowledgeable about every place and it's history. She even volunteered to be my photographer because I am a solo traveller. I greatly enjoyed this tour!
Departure on time, very informative and pleasant guide. As usually happens when bus tour is organized, some tourists do not respect the timing so those who are with discipline must wait..
Pick up in Time, very informative and pleasant guide. Just one notice : the restaurant selected for lunch had beautiful view on the lake , but very poor cuisine.
