    Our trip was simply superb and I enjoyed each and every second. The tour itinerary was very well planned in a way that we were not at all tired or bored at the end of the day. The guide was perfect and her knowledge about the tourist spots and the way she patiently explained those to us, really deserves a special mention. Kindly convey my regards to her as well and to the tour driver too.

    The company Hyur was great and this was one of our four day trips at it. The places themselves are landmarks of Armenia, so highly recommended!

    The trip and the places are really nice. the Tatev ropeway and monastery are amazing and the Khndzoresk bridge and caves are really impressing. the guide was really nice and gave us all the needed information about the places we visited and all the provinces we passed through during the trips. she even gave us explanations about the relation of Armenia with the surrounding countries.

    It was a nice experience. Khndzoresk was just magnificent, so Tatev monastery. The only problem with the organizers was that in the description they include restaurant and the impression is that it's included in the price but it is not. You have to pay for the restaurant.

    A long trip but completely worth it - stunning scenery, fascinating history and a very good guide the tour is run in English and Russian. The cable car to Tatev is a most scenic way to arrive! And the village carved into the Khndzoresk valley walls is unique. We went in early November... a longer day-length would have given us more time at the last stop but we still got to see a lot.

    This was definitely the best tour during all of our stay! Everything about it was amazing - our guide Khachatur, who was very friendly and passionate about his work, the stunning scenery on the way, the delicious food at the restaurant in Tatev Wings and of course, the crowning glory of the trip - the longest cable car in the world. I have traveled a fair bit, but I can absolutely honestly say that what you'll see during those 15 minutes in the cable car, will stay with you forever. Next time we are visiting Armenia, I would definitely go back to enjoy this experience for the second time. Khndzoresk Bridge is for people who like a bit of 'extreme' fun - you have to go up and down more than 450 steps which are attached on the side of a mountain and then make your way over a rope bridge that sways from each gust of wind. However, when seeing the locals come there, bringing the elderly and their kids, a sudden dose of bravery took over me as well. it was an exhilarating experience, especially because at that point it was already twilight and you could see bats flapping everywhere. It is a long excursion mostly because of the distance, but because of the lovely lot of people, informative guide and comfortable mini-bus, it didn't seem like such a long way. A must go to excursion when in Armenia, definitely!
