    Pretty much the whole group thought the Yerevan Genocide Museum should have been scheduled with an opt out clause. It’s so massively important to the history, culture and current politics. It would have been awful to miss it in favour of a flea market.

    This was (I think) our 21st trip with Explore - so I think that speaks for itself.

    I would add another morning or afternoon of country walking - only two country walks/hikes - need more for a better balance

    The tours of Armenia and Georgia were excellent; the Azerbaijan extension needs some development as it was not easy to engage with a new leader who was less communicative than the previous leaders, especially when the Georgian leader was still with us... Show more

    In Armenia there were limited alternatives available for lunches which got very samey - salads plus soup plus mezzes. Planning itinerary to avoid such limited choices could be tried.

    Additional time in Tbilisi is needed to do the city justice.

    Had a really enjoyable time exploring Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan with Armine & Alexandra. The pacing was good (although I would have preferred more active options) but we saw a lot, ate a lot and drank a lot!
