Azerbaijan and Georgia Group Tour Reviews

Author: Paola and Max   |   Rating: 525 August 2019
We decided to embark on a new journey with the travel agency Advantour after the previous good experience in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, this time choosing the Caucasus destination. The organization of the trip was perfect thanks to Ana, always ready to respond to our many requests. Furthermore, the trip was beautiful and culturally interesting thanks to the presence of the guides Zaur and Anna who allowed us to know their traditions and customs. We look forward to finishing our Silk Road with Advantour! Ciao!
