BAREV(Hello!)and a warm welcome to Armenia!

I have been a professional licensed tour guide since 2003 and I love it! I studied English philology at Yerevan State University and speak fluent English, Russian and Spanish.Being a guide in an ancient country like Armenia, such an off-the-map destination, has been allowing me to meet the most wonderful people in the world. My tourist are mostly from the USA, Europe and Australia looking for exotic adventures and unique experiences.If you are my guest, make sure you are pampered; you visit the most unique places where a regular tourist doesn't have access, you eat the most delicious food at the most exotic places, you learn everything about Armenia and you have unlimited photo stops and are never rushed. I'm an amateur photographer and I know where to take you so you take the best pictures of your trip!Being the world's first Christian country the landscape of Armenia is dotted by fairy-tale monasteries and churches, ancient castles tucked away in remote secret places. Together we will explore the hidden treasure of Armenia and you will learn more about this country than you could have imagined. During our tours you will meet the locals and socialize with them, and don't be surprised if they invite you into their homes and share their food with you! "A guest is the messenger of God", an Armenian proverb… In Armenia you feel as if you are God because everywhere you are pampered if you are a guest.With me you will feel the authentic spirit and colors of Armenia.I'm very passionate about what I do. I'm full of energy, enthusiasm and have a good sense of humor. There will be a lot of fun, jokes, adventures… simply a trip you will never forget! The most important thing for me is to see your happy faces and your smile.As for transportation I have a Hyundai sedan and a new Hyundai H1 deluxe minivan (8seats), year 2013. Both vehicles are very comfortable to travel long distances.I am one of the few Armenian tourist guides that can provide you with tailor-made tours off the beaten track.Come with me and explore the best Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh Republic have to offer!I'll be looking forward to meeting you in my fascinating country!

Mariam is a charming and very professional lady. I spent 2 days with her visiting 5 wineries. At each winery, Mariam was greeted like a long lost friend or relative. I am planning the next trip.

Mariam was great. She has an incredible amount of information on early Christian history and the history of Armenia. I took an all-day, private tour going to Lake Savan, Garni and Gerhard. Each were stunning in their own way. Mariam handled all the logistics including a demonstration of lavash baking and a lovely lunch. The driver was very competent, which... More
