AFC holidays are very good with organising holidays. I highly recommend Daniels name as he made sure that everything was in order and within our budget. The hotel we stayed in Armenia was very good too. Thank you.
Armenia trip.... more than expected and promised by AFC
We are a bunch of ladies, who wanted to travel on our own. We were recommended AFC by a friend and had initial reservations with going through a travel company. However, our worries were put to rest by David, who was the AFC Travel and Leisure consultant for us. He guided and took us through the entire process of registration and planning for our Armenia tour. Needless to say, it was very professional from the word Go and we would definitely recommend AFC to all our friends and especially, if you are a group venturing outside the country alone for the first time.
Once the bookings were done, we eagerly looked forward to the trip. We were received at the Yerevan airport by Sam, who was our tour guide for the trip. He took us to our hotel, which was a very good 4-star hotel in the City Centre. It was within walking distance to most of the shopping areas within the city. We had opted for 2 optional tours on 2 days and it was a wonderful and satisfying experience, travelling to the interior parts of the country, away from the city. We were able to see many of the popular sightseeing spots and Sam did a really efficient job of our tour guide, by taking us through the history and details of the various places we visited. Sam and our driver Levon, were accommodating of our groups’ request to include the ropeway in one of the day tours and we got to experience snow!! However, one suggestion that we would like to make, would be to reduce the number of monasteries on a single day, if it can mean, helping us see one more different type of monument or a local shopping market, which was not part of our initial itinerary. We really wished to see the famous Garni temple, which was not part of this tour. Having an extra day might perhaps have covered that. Sam also ensured we got to visit the local market to get hold onto some souvenirs.
The food provided was good throughout the tour, though the vegetarians would have liked more variety.
We can say that the planning was so well done by the entire team, that never at any point did we feel any kind of tension. We are definitely looking forward to doing more such trips with AFC!!
