Vacation information

Our top tip:
Weather is changeable - from hot Armenian summers to cooler mountain climes so pack for both!
Accomm:
16 nights hotel, 3 nights simple guest house
Solos:
Welcome; single supplement may apply for single rooms.
Included:
Accommodation, transfers, flights (if booked), tour guide, listed activities.
Meals:
18 breakfasts, 5 lunch and 6 dinners
Small group tour:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modelled on independent travel – but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. It’s easy to tick off the big sights independently – but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, traveling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. Those with a two-week vacation, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.

This trip was beyond my expectations . We had the most incredible tour leader, Alex, for Georgia and Azerbaijan. We could not have felt more comfortable and the knowledge of this young lady was immense.

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


The knowledge and passion for their countries of the tour guides in Armenia and Georgia, also the spectacular scenery, good food and excellent wine.

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


Explore the restaurants and choose local, not European, dishes. The local people are friendly and welcoming and always ready to give advice

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


Two of the accommodations were guest houses and various meals were taken in private homes. This gave an opportunity to sample local food, much of it grown in their own gardens, and to interface with the community. The standard was simple but more than adequate and the welcome was warm.

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


Excellent in Armenia and Georgia but some development of the Azerbaijan extension is required

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan are a cultural treasure trove, not only for their historic sites but for their traditions and heritage. We always want to show you as much of the real country as we can so we employ a local tour leader and variety of local guides who can really bring the culture to life for you in an authentic way.

In Georgia we are also working with the German government organisation ‘GIZ’ to help our partners train locals further down the supply train – from guides and drivers to hoteliers and restaurant owners. This helps to professionalise the industry in Georgia at a local level and benefits all businesses that we interact with.

In addition to the above, we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage. As well as this, we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of UK travel industry bodies Tourism Concern and AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.

As a company we support Cool Earth. Protecting rainforest is one of the most effective actions to tackle climate breakdown. CoolEarth work with indigenous communities empowering them to conserve their forest; keeping CO2 locked in.

People

Staying in small and relatively out of the way places and using local guesthouses really brings us closer to the local culture and gives us many opportunities for unique experiences.

Using local guides and crew is consistent with our policy to generate local employment and deliver direct economic benefits to the areas we are traveling in. We also do this by using locally owned hotels, spreading our business to a variety of local restaurants.

In this area which was relatively isolated until recently, the income we generate is really significant to these small businesses. It is important that the people who work for us are treated fairly and confident in their work. This is why we take care to train all our local tour leaders and give them all the support they need to do their job well
