Pilgrimage tours to Anatolia or historic Armenia have been for a longtime forbidden territory for travelers of Armenian descent. Due to political and geographical obstacles, as well as a lack of infrastructure to welcome large numbers of tourists, escorted tours to these lands, rich of cultural, religious and architectural treasures have been very rare in the past.
Recently there has been a great deal of effort in making eastern Anatolia an attractive destination for tourists. New hotels have been built and old ones renovated and the government in Turkey has taken extra steps to make the area safe and the roads comfortable for travelers.
As an experienced leisure tour operator we have taken every measure to make this historical trips enjoyable and memorable for our clients. One such example is the use of AC coach buses for our tours. The latter will be offered three times a year , spring, summer and fall for small groups of interested individuals or organizations. We also have used the best available hotels in each city or village where the group will overnight.
Finally, we hope you will join us in visiting the ancestral home of your parents and grandparents and witness in person the marvels offered by Armenian kings, religious leaders , architects and the people who lived on these lands for centuries.
