Please review your overall experience and what your highlights were

I greatly enjoyed my first holiday with Explore visiting two fascinating countries, Armenia and Georgia with their stunning scenery, fascinating built heritage (cathedrals, churches, castles, etc), friendly people and fine wine, brandy and food. The scenery as we crossed the Caucasus watershed in the north of Georgia, the views of Mount Ararat surprisingly high in the sky, the great religious centres of Echmiadzin and Mtskheta, the sight of Lammergeyer and red squirrels, Georgian wine and Armenian brandy, coupled with warm welcomes wherever we went made for a most enjoyable holiday that I happily recommend.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

The visit to and the exploration of the Cave Town of Vardzia was the main highlight. This experience and the walking in the High Caucusus were two personal noteworthy events. However, the knowledge and understanding of others in the group plus the historical knowledge of the guides in Armenia and Georgia certainly added to the whole trip.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

For me the best day of the trip was the visit to the cave city of Vardzia. It was a good daytrip combining interesting scenery and a fascinating site. The drive up to the Kazbegi region and the walk up to the Holy Trinity Church is also a good part of the trip.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

The high Caucasus mountains in the autumn sunshine. Wonderful walk up to the Church of the Holy Trinity. It is a hike but worth the effort. Enjoyed the optional tour to Bakumi.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

I don't think there was a particular highlight, I just enjoyed the whole experience. I was surprised and interested to see what remained of the old Soviet system, particularly in Armenia.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

The beautiful mountain scenery in the Caucasus is breath-taking, and not just because of the mountain roads we travelled on. The stone carvings in the Armenia churches are amazing to see.
