A Private, Historical and Cultural Tour of Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan
‘The South Caucasus is among the most culturally genuine, historically rich and religiously diverse - not to mention under the radar - parts of the world. They share a timeless and deep-rooted tradition of hospitality, family and food’. Patricia Schultz, 1001 Places to Go Before You Die.
Ala Osmond, Travel Director of Exeter International, will be leading this small group tour to this untouched and unique region.
Armenia was the first country to adopt Christianity, in the 4th century AD. It is this heritage which gives Armenia its distinctive character. The country is a tapestry of churches and monasteries, with a kaleidoscope of frescoes and murals. You will enjoy local hospitality, delicious national cuisine and stunning scenery.
Tbilisi is not only the capital of Georgia, but the capital of food and wine in the entire region. With neoclassical and Art Nouveau architecture, stunning countryside and mountain ranges close by, this city is a revelation.
Baku is a city of huge contrasts, with minarets superseded by the iconic architectural landmark that is The Flame Towers. Flames, signifying the power of natural energy, have been a part of local history since Zoroastrian times. Incredible museums and a Mediterranean climate complete the picture.
Once you have been, you will wonder why Yerevan, Tbilisi and Baku were not on the must do map before.
