*My 5-days Ararat trekking was a great trip with stunning views in the sunrise on the way to the summit. Most enjoyed - the spirit of the group (an interesting assortment of friendly people, including our enthusiastic guide Mehmet), meeting local semi-nomadic people along the trek and cultural visits (especially stunning Ishak Pasha Palace).
*I enjoyed every aspect of the trip. Appreciated the attention to detail displayed by Ararat Adventures. I especially enjoyed every moment on the mountain and all contact with the local culture. Although I knew in general what to expect, one of the unexpected bonuses of such a trip is meeting others within the group and sharing the experience.
This was an excellent mix of the culture and scenery of Turkey.
*When we were looking for a company to guide us on Mt. Ararat we carefully considered the options and chose Ararat trip. We were extremely pleased that we did as Saffet and Agnieszka looked after us and organised the trip perfectly! The accommodation, equipment and food were excellent and we had a brilliant time climbing the mountain with great company. We will arrange another trip with you soon and we shall look forward to meeting you both again.

On my Ararat climbing I was pleasantly surprised when at the camps we were offered such a plentiful meal. Lunches and dinners, which consisted of 3 dishes, not inferior to restaurant dishes in quality and taste. Breakfast with fruits, snacks, as well as morning rations until the next camp were also tasty and quite useful. To say the truth , I was preparing for canned goods and cracker. But everything was above my expectations. in addition to this, everything was also with a big human soul, and this is the most expensive thing, that I want to mention especially.

*I had an amazing experience with Saffet and Agnieszka during the vacations I spent in Turkey! My Ararat climbing was awesome and Saffet made everything to make me feel happy and comfortable! The food was very nice, also the tents, and I could enjoy my evenings playing "OKEY" with the staff! The experience of climbing is something unique, and the landscapes are really beautiful! I really recommend!
*My wife and I climbed Mt. Ararat in the summer of 2013. We initially found the Ararat adventures website through a random google search, but were very impressed with the clear and comprehensive information they provided. Through a couple of email exchanges Hazal answered all our questions, and was very upfront about all costs (which were extremely reasonable). From the moment we arrived in Van to the top of Mt. Ararat Hazal and Saffet were extremely kind and accommodating. All our requests were met with the same reply: "Of course!" Their experience and knowledge of the mountain made the whole trip safe and fun! We spent four unforgettable days together, and give them our highest recommendation!

*You will fall in love with beautiful guides Agnieszka and Saffet as we did. And it is not only because of the rewarding experience which we got with Ararat Trip itself. It is more about the attitude to the service they provide and the friendship you gain through the journey to the top. Lifetime trip thanks to those great people!

*Agnieszka and Saffet, I can't thank you enough for the hospitality you showed towards my friends and I when we did the Ararat Trek in 2012. From the moment we were collected at Van Airport we was looked after wonderfully and wanted for nothing. By no means these few sentences can cover the wealth of experience and impressions that we have brought back home and will carry in our memories forever. The little extra touches you added to the trip such as drinking cay with the families on the mountain on route to Base Camp made the whole experience magical. The beauty of the country and its people was unique & wonderful. The professionalism, kindness & friendship shown by you and the rest of your staff was remarkable and I would definitely recommend you to anyone thinking of planning an adventure. Finally much respect to our brilliant guide Saffet who not only expertly guided us to the summit of Ararat but taught us many things about the local culture and the history on the mountain. I don't think any future adventures I embark upon will ever come close to the time I had on Ararat. Thank you very much for the memories.

* I and my friends would just like to say BIG thanks for the arrangements on our trip. We really appreciated and we all had a great time. Our guide Mustafa did an excellent job and took great care of us. We would highly recommend your company. Thanks once more.
