Our Highlights of Azerbaijan & Georgia trips score an average of 4.57 out of 5 based on 7 reviews in the last year.
The first leader was very formal and not warm and friendly like all other intrepid leaders. Very disappointed in this. The 2nd leader was good, but clearly not dedicated and truly engaged in the group like ALL OTHER INTREPID TRIPS. What was the difference here. I'd like to know. Luckily, this was not my first trip. I am a legend and know what the standard is!!!
