I booked Armenia Georgia tour for October 2023. I traveled in a small group of only 4 travelers and it was super comfortable. We became good friends and intend to travel together next year. The hotels were good but I wish I had a chance to know that an upgrade is available sooner I would upgrade to 4*. Anyways even 3* hotels had great central locations. I recommend Cascade Travel as Armenia. Georgia trip organizer

Real surprise 

We traveled to Armenia and Georgia with my husband in October 2023. We heard a lot about Georgian wines in The Netherlands but no single word about Armenia wines and what a surprise, Armenia has excellent wines and lovely wineries to visit. We were lucky enough to participate in the grape harvest in Areni village. Since we booked a group tour but traveling only 2 of us Nune literally did her best to customize the tour and include special activities to make our tour interesting. Both Georgia and Armenia are good points to be dotted on the winemaking map.

Our amazing tour with Cascade Travel!
I recently traveled to Armenia and Georgia with my friends, and the tour was exceptional. Dilijan is must-visit destination and Lake Sevan was just amazing. Our guides were knowledgeable and helpful. We moved to Georgia safely. Both countries are welcoming and people are nice and friendly. In a word, we enjoyed the whole tour and every minute of it. Thanks a lot!

Everything was well organized. I joined a group of 9 people from different countries and we had fun together. Every day we explored new places. Shaqi waterfall was a great addition to the tour and Georgia amazed me with its breathtaking Prometheus Cave. Thank you Shushanik for such an incredible tour through Armenia and thank you Tina for helping us to explore Georgia from different corners.

This tour was one of the most amazing trips I’ve ever had. It was my second trip to Armenia (first one was for my business) and this time I came with my family and we had a great time in both Armenia and Georgia. Riding the Tatev cable car was especially thrilling, and the view of Mount Kazbek was breathtaking. However, the highlight of this tour was the impressive Prometheus. I highly recommend this tour! Thank You!
