Vrezh was a perfect, very pleasant tour guide. He was discreet, young in his thinking and sporty. He was able to answer all our questions - and there were many questions - and responded to all our wishes and requirements. He made a great tour for us and we got great impression about Armenia s present and history. We will recommend him to our friends. Vrezh is a wonderful representative of Armenia. It was a pleasure to meet him and get to know his home country together with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for kind words and hope to see you again.

We had a fantastic tour led by Vrezh. Three of us went to the Yegheghis cemetery - which you would not be able to visit without private transport from the main city. Vrezh was helpful and answered our questions. He drives an excelled 4x4 which really helps on some of the less well-maintended roads of Armenia! So a very comfortable journey. Would recommend him as guide and driver. Thank you Vrezh for taking us!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind words.

Our tour with Vrezh was our favorite thing we did in Armenia! Georgia has the reputation as having beautiful monasteries/churches and scenery, but I found Armenia to be preferable. Vrezh spoke excellent English and his accent was not hard to understand. He told us all about the sights in ways that made it interesting. He answered all questions about Armenia inside and outside of the specific attractions. I would highly recommend a tour with Vrezh!

Vresh was an outstanding guide. Very knowledgeable about Armenia and Georgia and has good command of English. We covered all the important sites promised by the tour. Vresh was an excellent driver, and we always felt safe no matter how difficult the traffic and curvy the road. He was was a pleasure to spend time with as he is charming, and personable. The lunch and dinner choices he made while we were on the road were some of the best meals we had on the trip. He showed excellent judgment during the tour!

We are extremely happy with our choice as without his skills we could not see so much of this beautiful country, specially in winter time. Vrezh is very professional guide, reliable, punctual and really knows about the atractions around his country. We can easily recommend his services for a short or long trip in Armenia!

Vrezh was one of the best guides I ever had. I spent ten days with him driving all over Georgia and Armenia, plus two side trips into Turkey. He designed an action packed tour, and took me to every site and city that I requested plus added several more based on his deep knowledge of the area. I can honestly say he is the best TBL guide I have used (and I have used several). Friendly and easy to get to know. Excellent English and a safe driver in a region with many horrible drivers. Highly recommended.

This tour got more interesting when Vrezh went out of his way to make this adventure happen. The weather wasn't in our favour, so the Khor Virap was very foggy and couldn't see anything, but the rest of the tour was amazing and hats off to Vrezh when he decided we could stay for sunset as we had an amazing view of the Monastery and the mount Ararat in the background for the sunset. So cheers to Vrezh for an amazing trip.

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!

No worries, if you are a single traveller because he will capture and take best shots of your tour and make it memorable. Norvank was my favorite, and if you are seeking for adventure try the zipline in Yell Park and the ski resort in Tsakhadzor.

He knows Armenia inside out by car, bike and trekking. He gave us many great insights into the history, culture and society of Armenia. We also went to Georgia including a mind-blowing hiking trip up the slopes of mount Kazbeg (up to about 3000m). All B&B's booked by Vrezh were great.

We explored Armenia with our guide Vrezh N. Easiness to communicate in EN/RU as well as his not overdetailed but still interesting narrations about the landmarks we visited,made tour comfortable and relaxed.He was also flexible and eager to help when some additional arrangements had to be done. It wasn't included in a trip description, but we would have appreciated a bit more guidance (info what price is normal, help with bargaining,etc.)when we (along with him) visited the market to buy local delicacies

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks my dear friends for your positive response. It was very interesting to travel with you in these 2 days and I'm glad that you appreciate my help. Best Wishes, Vrezh

One of the most poignant and memorable travel journeys. I would never have known about this unless I saw Vrzeh's posting on this tour. He drove us 3 hours to get there and sensitively walked us throughout the area.

This was a well-planned tour, with stops that broke up the long drive to our hotel in Goris. We had plenty of time at each of the stops. Our guide provided us with good information about the sights and helped us to understand current conditions in Armenia. The accommodations for our overnight in Goris were very comfortable, and we had a good night's rest. We enjoyed the trip to Tatev monastery over the aerial tram with great views. The final stop at Noravank was a perfect ending. Recommend highly.

This was the perfect short tour for us, as we were traveling with a young child and appreciated being able to see the temple and the monastery in a reasonable amount of time. Our guide was well informed and helpful, even helping to entertain our grandson so we could get photos of the sites. The sites themselves are well worth visiting, and it would have been difficult to see them in one day on our own. There were few signs at the sites, so we appreciated the information provided. We highly recommend.

We were traveling with a child under 1 year old, and this was a pleasant way to make the trip from Tbilisi to Yerevan, as we were able to stop as needed. We visited several interesting sites that broke up the trip so it didn't seem like a long drive. The driver was very friendly and spoke English very well, so we were able to ask questions about Armenian culture and recent events. It was a great introduction to the country. The car was comfortable and we had a very safe driver. Highly recommended.

Tour: Cycling to Holly Town of Armenia, Yerevan, Armenia

We biked from Yerevan to Echmiadzin, stopping at different interesting sites in the city, then along country roads with views of Mount Ararat in the distance. We visited interesting historic sites and an intriguing cultural center/school/NGO promoting the arts and traditional crafts. We returned to Yerevan along a much busier road which may be uncomfortable for some riders. Vrezh considered this and will likely reroute this return. Tell him what you want in a ride and he will cater to you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lynne and Charles for your advices by the way the "Cycling to Holly Town of Armenia" tour is updated now with more rural route and less traffic. We miss you!

Vrezh was great. He made a well rounded custom tour that catered specifically to our interests, including historic sites, a canyon hike to caves, and preparing Armenian dishes with hospitable locals each night. His accommodation suggestions were awesome, in the city and smaller towns. He's easy going, warm, and really good at reading and understanding what we would enjoy. He gave us cool cultural details to help us understand true Armenian day-to-day life and historical dynamics of this amazing country.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lynne and Charles for your wonderful words! I will always remember what a lovely couple you are and hope to be able to see you again in my country (for petroglyphs and more arts and crafts).

Vrezh was a great guide and great company. He was very flexible and accommodating in arranging the tour and pick up time and locations. We got to customize our tour and even change things around while already in route. We spent most of the long drive just chatting which made it very pleasant. Vrezh was also a very considerate driver which is very important given the twisting and often not optimal state of the roads. Overall it was great and will definitely look for Vrezh for our next tour.

Vrezh was a great tour guide. Anything I wanted to know or needed he took care of--booking at an awesome Jazz club (not to be missed)in Yerevan, booking at the Yerevan Opera, where to eat etc. We spent 3 days together--city tour, country side and transfer to Tibilis, Georgia. Everything went perfectly. He knows his country well and due in large part to Vrezh I came to really appreciate Armenia's charms. I thought of Yerevan as the real city "that never sleeps"...a city of beautiful music and great food!

The trip was amazing.The tour was very well planned, I was able to experience a great deal of Armenia's history, culture, religion by walking and driving through beautiful landscape! The best way to discover the wonders of Armenia is to get into a tour, specially by local Armenian who will take the extra step to show you things beyond an ordinary tour. My tour guide was young, very energetic, communicative and most important of all had extensive knowledge that made it all worth saying I truly recommend it

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Roberto!!! Thank you for this fantastic review! I am glad you enjoyed your time with me while discovering this amazing country in a record time. Let me know when you and your family come back, I would be more than happy to see you again. :) Cheers! Vrezh

In the knowledge of my interests and objectives, Vrezh went out of his way to make the tour a great success. He arranged things that I could only have dreamed of. Vrezh was eager to give me the opportunity to experience to the full, whether planned or unplanned, such as when a winemaker at Areni motioned us to visit his winery and vineyard. I also appreciated the absence of pressure or even suggestion from Vrezh to tip - that can really take the edge off an otherwise great experience.

The "Best of Armenia" tour was certainly a memorable experience. Vrezh local knowledge and humble personality were truly appreciated. He was very flexible and willing to share what Armenia had to offer. This included a day trip in a Russian jeep to visit a farm village which was truly amazing!! He was also able to coordinate a later visit to Georgia!! Thanks to Vrezh for his superb service and hospitality...!!

Vrezh is a particularly good guide if you are looking for a bespoke tour. He will endeavour to find whatever you are looking for even if it is exceedingly unusual as was the case for us. We wanted to visit a school in Gyumrie which was twinned with our local school. We had no idea where it was. He found it for us and then went in and asked if we could look round, we were welcomed and given coffee and took lots of photos! He always has ideas of good places to see and is very helpful.
