Wow what a great time with Vazgen. Experienced, funny and reliable. He is the perfect match for a hike around Armenia. He helped me a lot finding solutions to go from a city to another, giving advices about hiking spots, taking care of bringing materials and share his experience and a lot of stories about Armenia. I can't say anything else than spend time with him, go hike with him you will on good hands :) Thank you Vazgen !

Vazgen is a very nice guy and you can immediately tell that he has a lot of experience. He is fun & interesting to talk to and has a great sense of hospitality. He made us feel very welcome on our first day in Armenian mountains. So I truly hope we'll meet again some day on the TCT or other trails.
