«Բարև ձեզ!» or Hello.
My name is Mger and let me extend you a warm welcome to your exciting Armenian adventure! I offer car trips and excursions all over Armenia for families, groups, and sole travelers. My approach is very individual and tailored to all your needs and interests.
I always try to offer the unparalleled experience to my tourists. My standard trips include me driving and showing you the best locations in Armenia. I drive through the most beautiful and historically significant places in my country and highlight the places that will show you how picturesque and charming Armenia really is. When we drive from one location to the other, I try to select a route with the most spectacular landscapes, including ancient settlements, centuries-old Churches, prehistoric caves, steep cliffs, and graceful snowy peaks. I also manage all of the hotel reservations to make sure that you enjoy your evenings and nights after long road trips. While traveling with me, you also do not have to worry about choosing a place to get food, as I always take my tourists to cafes and restaurants that offer the tastiest national cuisine at the cheapest price. And of course, In case you need some advice on local souvenirs, I will always be there for you!
You can choose one or more out of many scenic routes described on my website. If you do not want to limit yourself to the routes I carefully crafted for you and have your own idea of a perfect Armenian trip, no problem at all! We can discuss the sites you want to visit and create the best routes for you and your travel companions.
During my tours I try my best to entertain my tourists by telling them about the past of Armenia and about every location that we visit. However, my specialty is leading excursions and telling you many of my stories in Armenian, my mother tongue, or in Russian, the language I’m fully proficient in. If you do not speak any of these two languages, I may have to serve you as a driver that shows you the best of Armenia without telling you a lot about it. I have a knowledge about my country, but I may not be able to tell you a lot of my stories because English is not my area of expertise. I will not be able to professionally speak with you in English, but I can explain all of the standard things. We may have to use a translator from time to time, but this should not be a problem. If you want, we can arrange for a professional English speaking guide for extra price.
Advantages of travelling through Armenia by yourself with Russian and English speaking guide:
- Individual route of your travelling!
You can choose in what order you will see the tourist sights of Armenia (volcano Aragatz, lake Kari Lich, waterfall Shake, cave town Lastiver, «stone symphony» in Garni, beautiful sunsets on the Sevan lake, incredible Gorge Vorotan), or not following standard tourist routes.
- Choose time and way of sight seeing by yourself!
Renting a car with the driver-guide allows you to travel with the speed you prefer. Ancient monasteries Khor-Virap, Saghmosavank, Geghard, Sevanavank, Haghpat, Sanahin, Tatev monastery, Gndevank are waiting for you. Nobody will hurry you while you enjoy your travelling!
- Only good hotels and comfortable places for the rest.
Having chosen tours by taxi with the personal driver, you will stay only in the good hotels, private guest houses, and places for the rest.
- I value my reputation and never advise you unknown place for the rest.
Constant language support in communication with local people and authorities. Individual English speaking guide is the guarantee of our mutual understanding with the local people and police. There are a lot of the traffic policemen in Armenia, and they often stop travelers for non-compliance with the local rules.
- Opportunity to combine tour to Armenia with eco-tourism
You will have chance to visit both famous sights of Armenia (Dilijan, Jermuk, Tsaghkadzor, wonderful antiquities Zvarnots, portakar (“umbilical” stone), fortress Amberd, Noratus, Karavan-Sarai, cave town Khndzoresk) and not so well known, but very picturesque places, which is suitable for eco-tourism.
- Unforgettable comfort travelling at acceptable prices!
Renting a car in Armenia with the driver-guide is safe, convenient and cheaper, than the same service in many other big cities. You will be pleasantly surprised with the prices on the driving and guide service
My car fleet
My driving experience is almost 10 years, including driving taxi on highway spirals and slopes. I used to drive accurately, with maximum comfort for the passengers. I don’t like to risk.
I have a few cars for the small groups (Opel Zafira — 7 seats or Mazda MPV — 7 seats), and one spacious car for the big group (Mercedes Sprinter — 18 seats).
If you like luxury, I can suggest Lexus RX300.
All the cars are equipped with air-conditioning units and good media system. There is big monitor for the shared viewing in Mercedes Sprinter. You will not be bored while travelling through Armenia during our car tour. Visiting sights of Armenia with individual English-speaking guide is much more pleasant than with the regular bus guide and unknown tourist group.
It will be comfortable for the most little passengers to travel through Armenia in child safety seat.
