Reviews for Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia vacation


review 13 Aug 2017

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

We started walking through the fortified town of Sighnaghi in Georgia and were sidetracked by the sound of music coming from the main square. It turned out that it was a national vacation, and a series of youth groups in splendid costumes were doing traditional dances on a stage in the square, cheered on by friends waving the national flag from the balcony of the city hall and about 1000 relatives with cell phone cameras. We didn't see much else of Sighnaghi, but we didn't mind!

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

It's an action-packed 2 weeks, but you'll see everything from grim Soviet-era relics to incredibly beautiful ancient monasteries on remote mountaintops. Be flexible, wear good walking shoes, and come prepared for all sorts of weather.

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

All of the above, but especially the first: We patronized local guesthouses, restaurants, and other businesses, and I found it far more authentic than going from one lookalike hotel to another. One environmental impact I wish we could have reduced was the use of bottled water, but in that part of the world it's an unfortunate necessity.

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

I felt that the vacation was well organized, our trip leader (Dario) was a kind person as well as an expert, and all in all I had a great time. This was my second trip with our vacation provider, and I just booked a third for next year!
