Our time with Hayk was awesome. He's easy-going, dynamic, well-rounded and unbelievably knowledgeable in every single aspect of his country; he tuned in to our interests, shared thought provoking information and was always ready to do more. He showed us wonderful authentic food experiences, both traditional Armenian and local specialties in each area. We left with bellies full of food and minds full of wonderful memories of his country and its incredible people. He's a true ambassador of Armenia.
