We had a wonderful time on our hike with Vahagn. Our day with him was a highlight of our trip to Armenia! Vahagn was flexible, accommodating, very responsive, and helpful in getting us ready for our trip. He was very knowledgeable of the area and kept us entertained the whole time. Plus he took some amazing pictures of our voyage. We would definitely recommend and hire him again.

Several times I had the opportunity to hike with Vahagn. Very caring and attentive to group members. His love for the environment was also felt, which is highly valued in the case of a guide, as it is passed on to the members of the expedition.

One of the best guides I’ve ever met👏 If you want to discover Armenia you should do it with Vahagn. He is the most attentive, caring and responsible person. Besides, he can fix any kind of problem easily and quickly👍

Vahagn is the ideal guide. He has great knowledge of local fruit and berries as well as local trails and their historical significance. He has the Explorer's spirit, willing to go off track to check something new on request. The conversation was always engaging, keeping us busy mentally and physically throughout our hike. He went over and beyond helping us, even days later. 5 stars to the guy.

Where do I begin? Thank you for an incredible day! Vahagn has a magic to give knowledge combined with lots of emotions, laughter and worthwhile details. 🧗🏻‍♀️ My great pleasure was to go hiking to the “Hidden Waterfall” with the person who has found it and with his hard work gave lots of people chance to see it too. 🌊 Even my native language vocabulary is too poor to describe how beautiful the place was and what atmosphere gave Vahagn to that trail. I highly recommend him as a guide and promise that you will have safe hiking, eat on time and be full, see things in nature that you would have never paid attention to alone, photos if you like them😁 and what is important be satisfied and full of energy after the tiring trip. Thank you Vahagn for being so professional and dedicated to your work. ❤️🇦🇲

In October 2021, my friend and I had the honour to hike with Vahagn. Previously, I’d had experience with hiring guides for various tours. However, the experience with Vahagn was far different from getting a standard tour guide. Once we met with Vahagn, he immediately started helping with getting the best snacks for the trip. He also arranged the most convenient way to get to the mountains. Throughout the journey, we chatted about several topics and had the opportunity to educate ourselves about the local history, conflicts and traditions. The outcome of the trip was a total blast, making my trip to Armenia the memorable one. Vahagn’s strength is how kind and open he is and how he can communicate with others. The entire experience felt more like hiking with a friend that I hadn't seen for a while. I couldn't recommend him more.

Хайкинг с Ваагном - это мое лучшее решение за все время путешествия по Армении. У нас была очень красивая тропа, по которой было интересно идти. Ваанг очень много знает, с ним интересно говорить. Всем рекомендую!

Nowadays its very difficult to find a both good specialist and a person who has a nice and friendly personality. Its like a finding a gold in a mud. )) Recently, I experienced my first hiking tour with Vahagn Vardumyan and would like to express my emotions here. In the beginning i had a fear how it would go, because it was my first attempt to take part in hiking. He is really talented, and experienced specialist besides it he is real nature lover, patriot, versatile․ Feel free to ask any kind of questions in various fields he will definitely tell you something interesting.)) Here are top priorities why should one choose especially tour with Vahagn; - skillful - good sense of humour - colorful photo shooting - Secure traveling - patient -Good listener - easy going, friendly manners I can't help for my next trip with Vahagn ))
