What people are saying about Akhtala

Amazing experience! The locations covered during this trip and the info provided by Beka (our guide) enriched our knowledge and perspective. He is definitely one of the best guides I had in Georgia. The driver was also very experienced on the Armenian roads. The lunch experience with a local Armenian family was one of the highlights with their hospitality, delish food and warm smile. This tour was simply beautiful, culturally rich and eye opening. I highly recommend it!

A fantastic way to get a flavour of Armenia in a single day - the combination of churches, monasteries and the home-cooked lunch provides an excellent introduction to Armenia. The guide was really friendly and knowledgeable. The tour group was also really social making it the ideal opportunity to discuss travel plans and tips with other likeminded travellers

Very knowledgeable guide Beka who shared a lot of history about Armenia and the former Soviet Union, and added a personal touch with nuggets of his personal stories. Enjoyed this intimate and interactive experience thoroughly, very well curated tour with a good mix of history, natural sights, culture and food! Highly recommended!

Bake was an amazing tour guide and very accommodating. He was very passionate about the tour and full of knowledge. The Armenian lunch was also very tasty and I felt like I had a great day and left me wanting to explore more of Armenia. Definitely recommend!!

A very eventful and relaxed trip with many highlights and a first feeling for Armenia. Completely successful.
