About
Traveling completely privately makes it even more unique as we will drive away to the off the beaten path to see the Symphony of Stones. Being in that Area and not driving down to Garni Valley to see this Natural anomaly is unacceptable. this May turn into the highlight of the day.

We had a tremendous time with Hayk. First we went on the Northern Armenia tour and then on the Garni, Geghard, Symphony of Stones tour. Hayk is knowledgeable, polite, fun, responsible and simply just good company. And as an extra bonus - he actually sing beautifully, which adds another dimension when you visit the great church rooms with him :-) This must be the best guide in Armenia - we simply cannot recommend him enough!

Οn our trip to Armenia we had Hayk as our guide. Our choice could not be better. First of all, Hayk is an amazing person, kind, friendly and funny with so much knowledge on various topics. She talks about Armenia and its history with so much passion that it made us love her a little more.
During the trip we had particularly emotional moments but also so much fun. Hayk added to his program and places we wanted to see without feeling any pressure. We are sure that this trip, without exaggeration, would not be the same without Hayk.
In conclusion, we would say that you need at least three days to see these amazing places outside of Yerevan and surely Hayk is the right person to guide you.
Thank you very much Hayk for this special trip to our beloved Armenia!

Hyke is definitely a rockstar in Armenia. He is very passionate and knowledgeable about his country's history and culture and also an extremely friendly and kind person. He helped me to check on my visa status (it hadn't been approved a day before my arrival) and arrange a private tour for me on the shortest of notice. Although his prices might be a bit higher than other tours in Armenia, the way he works makes it definitely worth it.

This was our first trip to Armenia and we were informed about Hayk by a friend. We thought this man would be just another guide, but we were wrong. He turned out to be a man full of energy, a man full of positivity, a man full of patriotism for his country and a Man with a mission to Prove that his country is the BEST !!

He came to receive us at the airport and from that point itself, Hayk became the most important part of our trip to Armenia. We stayed in Yerevan, Jermuk and Dilijan over a period of 8 days and Hayk made sure we make the most of those 8 days.

Packed with information about the country, about the culture, the traditions, historical events, Hayk was not only a guide but a complete Encyclopedia of Armenia. Be it about a Monastery, or the people, or even about the 3500 years old culture, Hayek knew about it.

We met a few local families in Dilijan and Jermuk and enjoyed the local cuisine, invaded a few sunflower fields, vineyards and fruit farms, all thanks to this ever smiling man with the right intention to give his tourists a unique experience of this amazingly beautiful country.

Hadn't it been him, this would have been our trip to just another country. Now Armenia stands out and Hayk has set a benchmark for all our future trips.

All respect for Hayk who does an exceptional job there; a true sample of an excellent tour guide!

Had the most amazing trip to Armenia, and Hayk was the best guide ever! Hayk and his sister Anahit guided our group of 10 for 2 1/2 days. Hayk is so knowledgeable, patient, engaging and related so may personal stories that helped us to connect to the sights and people we were seeing and meeting. I can't imagine seeeing Armenia without Hayk and Anahit to guide us. Hayk even managed to get the haze to lift so we had a clear view of Mt. Ararat! You won't regret a minute with Hayk.

Hayk is a guide who knows rediculously lot about everything. We saw lots of beautiful places in only 5 days. Driving around in his listening to his and our music. He tells us about the landscape, culture, architecture, history and what not. Can sometimes be overwelming but he feels when it is to much or when we are tired. We would never have been able to see all the beautiful sites and consume all the knowledge alone. Surely recommend him!

Hayk was an amazing guide who had every littile information on each places we visited. He could even say the dates and minute details of each historic event and with the passion to let others know about Armenia and the wonderful People there.

Took us to the best places around and arranged a feast with the authentic Armenian food. We could just come back to Armenia only to be with Hayk and listen to him again and again on the knowledge he has about the place. Such a great human being with high energy levels and positivity.

After traveling to 109 countries across the world and meeting many different tour guides, I must say the experience with Hayk stands apart from all the rest. We are very fast-paced travelers, and Hayk adapted the entire itinerary to fit our needs and ensure that we got more than most people would on a short holiday. The experience overall was very engaging and more fun than we expected!

Conversations with Hayk are not just one-sided about Armenia and its history, but they are actually a delightful multi-dimensional exchange as Hayk himself is a very experienced world traveler who has experienced many different countries and understands the mindset of travelers. Hayk is super adaptable and quickly understands the individual travel-style and needs of different travelers.

In terms of actual logistics and comfort, Hayk was there with us right from the airport until the end. He recommended very unique and quirky boutique hotels (we strongly recommend that you follow his advice) and ensured we got rooms with the best views. He also provided a comfortable large air-conditioned SUV (Toyota Sequoia) and ensured that our specific vegan dietary needs were taken care of. We were really touched that for 6 days with us Hayk actually was vegan as well. He is sensitive to all his guests and treated us as family not as customers.

More importantly, Hayk makes it a lot of fun by including many hidden gems and surprises which only locals know (and few tourists have ever heard of). He is passionate about his country and its history, a testament of his ability is that today I can say I know more about Armenian history than I know of any other country (except my home country). Finally, we are delighted that Hayk is not just a tour knowledgeable and capable guide, at the end of the trip we are delighted to make a new friend for life.
