Reviews for Armenia vacation, Ancient Armenia


review 7 Sep 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Lots of ancient history, culture and impressive monasteries. The Matenadaran Library in Yerevan is fascinating with a wealth of exhibits and information. Tatev is worth a visit, great views from the cable car. The Genocide Memorial in Yerevan is very imposing and dignified.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Try the local home made produce you can get from vendors outside the monasteries. The bread filled with herbs we bought at Tatev was delicious and the walnuts wrapped in fruit was also very good. Fruit brought from roadside sellers also recommended. The other tip is not to expect good service or even smiles at some hotels - many places very much stuck in Soviet Union mentality.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes but would have liked to have done more homestays.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very good.
