Dear Gardman tour and Hayk Jan! Thanks a lot for a unforgettable impressions during this wonderful journey. It was a great time with good friends. Now I know how we can organize some of our next weekends. I think also that it could be a super gift for the people we love.
With jeep tour with Gardman Tour I saw Armenia not in usual way… It was mach more beautiful, I am astonished, that before I had no idea, that my country can be so beautiful when you look at it from about 2500 meters above sea, and when you go by roads, which are roads only for our guide Haik and his team members… Thanks to all the Gardman Tour team, and Haik, for the moments with adrenaline. They proudly do their job, with love and with high professionalism. P.S. I'll come back with my friends for the next trip :)
Thank you Haik and Hakob for the great tour on 27th of January. We enjoyed a lot our transport from Tsaghkadzor back to Yerevan via mountain roads. Landscapes were great and history knowledge of Hakob stunning! Next time I need to take small not book to somehow remember at least part of the information. I will recommend you also for my friends who will come to Armenia for longer business trips and ask for something to do for week-end!
I am 86 years old and the tour to Armania was my 4th Jeep tour with Medraft, and with gods help , not the last. The combination of the lovely country, the logistic combination MEDRAFT-Gardman and the excelent group leaders GILAD and JAKOB was the best choice that could be done. Thanks , m\\Mike
Haik put together a trip for us starting from Garni canyon to Geghard village and from there up to the mountains. The scenery was excellent. The restaurant he chose for lunch was excellent as well. It was also very enjoyable to get a chance to drive the SUV off road. Haik came through with an excellent trip for us at a very reasonable cost. I will definitely use his company for next tourism trip in Armenia.
If You are like me and want to see a beautiful country, reach untouched nature, meet kind and friendly locals, eat delicious authentic food but still enjoy the comfort of a decent clean hotel with hot water and use excellent cars that are strong and safe enough to reach the remotest mountain tops, I would like to recommend Gardman Tour - www.dreamlandarmenia.com. My husband and I have just returned from a 7 day jeep tour in Armenia in May 2013. We came as a group organized by Medraft, who chose Gardman Tour as their local operator. Our local guides were Artak and Hakob who were both fantastic. They deeply love their country and openly share their unfanthomable mine of knowledge. The tour was impeccably planned and fine-tuned to meet our specific needs and wishes. I would like to share two of the great experiences with you: On our first day of touring we had lunch at Artur's house in a small village. The table was set on their veranda with a view of the village and the luscious green mountains in the distance. Of course the touring and fresh air had built up a healthy appetite ( or should I just say that we were ravenous?). A delicious lunch of beans, rice , ommlette, salads and local fresh bread was served by Laura, Artur's daughter, who studies literature and philosophy at university in Yerevan. After eating too much food Artur brought out the home made apple vodka and accordion and we spent a friendly afternoon singing and toasting each other. Of course all the food is locally grown - you can see the vegetable patch in the yard and watch the hens pecking nearby. Another spectacular day was spent at Tatev. After riding in the world's longest cable car, an incredible experience in itself, we reached Tatev monastery which came to life and thanks to excellent guiding, we learnt about the history and legends from this place. I could go on and on: how can I omit the delicious picnics in beautiful nature? The fresh trout from Sevan lake? The snow on Camel mountain? Taking the natural minearl waters in Jermuk? Talking to Hasmik who runs the lovely Basen hotel in Sisian? Armenia is a beautiful country, still unspoiled by too many tourists. The people are warm, polite and friendly and the talented staff at Gardman Tour helped us see and feel all of this and at the same time took care of our individual and specific needs and requests. Haik, Artak and Hakob: thank you all for a wonderful trip. Jane Mualem
I absolutely enjoyed the King Smbat off-road tour. Haik started the tour by providing us with historical facts about Armenia which were useful and always had connections with the tour's chosen sites. On this tour, we stopped at three different places: Khor virap, Noravank and the King Smbat Fortress. Each of these site is located in the mountains and I must say they all exceeded my expectations in terms of beauty. For lunch, we went to Haik friends' house which consisted of delicious veggies picked from their garden, sweet local wine and grilled chicken. Then, the off-toad tour started. Haik showed great expertise in driving us to the top of the mountains using extremely narrow and steep roads. The scenery at the top is absolutely breath-taking. I would recommend this tour to anyone who loves nature and beautiful landscapes as well as Armenia's history.
