This is a very comprehensive trip to an interesting and under explored part of the world. Overall it is good value for money, although it does feel a bit drawn out at times and can probably be covered in 15 - 16 days. Armenia was interesting although it can feel a bit tedious after a while due to the large number of monasteries and churches that are visited. Georgia is much more varied, although 2 nights in Kutaisi is too much unless it is possible to include a visit to the Black Sea. Baku is a wonderful city and the icing on the cake at the end of the trip - it would be better to allow 2 full days (3 nights) to look around the city, which could be achieved by staying only 1 night in Sheki, which doesn't have a great deal to offer. All the tour leaders and drivers were fine, but I need to make special mention of Leven who was an excellent, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable tour guide in Georgia and Azerbaijan, and also the excellent Georgian driver.

Parbold, Lancs.
A very interesting part of the world where East and West meet and it would be very difficult to better the scenery, history, food and drink of the area. Certainly the tour was good value whilst local prices put Aldi to shame. A lot of ground was covered but the pace was easy going.

In general good, some of the accomodations could be in town rather than ourside, 1/2 day in Sheki is enough, could be countinued to Baku in afternoon to give more time in Baku.

Meeting the people. The mountains. Some of the ancient sites.

Travel a month earlier to avoid the changing weather.

We've gone on several trips with Explore and all have been worthwhile with personable, knowledgeable guides from the regions visited.

Well organised, good value for money. All logistics taken care of, no need to think, just get up on time!

Lots of churches does get a bit samey. Laura excellent guide 10/10. Leven could be more interactive and needs to involve himself with the group. Tends to rush for no reason. Maybe stay near the cave towns, the drive is quite far with accommodation nearby

Would recommend more time in Armenia, 1-2 days walking in the countryside.
