In May 2013 we conducted a 7 day jeep tour in Armenia with the group from Israel organized by our partner Medraft. The tour was planned and fine-tuned to meet their specific needs and wishes.
On our first day 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. 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. Also 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 of this tour 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 by our guides Artak and Hakob, the group learnt about the history and legends from this place.
During the tour we also visited lake Sevan and tasted fresh trout. We admired the snow on Ukhtasar mountain and took the natural mineral waters in Jermuk. We reached Sisian where we met friendly Hasmik who runs the lovely Basen hotel and had a nice talk with her.
The tour was plenty of activities and our guests were truly satisfied.
