We had a memorable tour in Armenia with Vrezh. We felt immediately at ease with him and to us, he is not our guide but a friend exploring with us who takes excellent photos as well. The custom made day tour Vrezh made for us was perfect. Armenia is such a beautiful country and looks mystical covered in snow. Vrezh speaks impeccable English and is very knowledgeable about the history of the places we've been to. See you when we go back to do the trekking and go camping. Shnorhakalutyun Vrezh!
