MIR Tour Honored as 2008 "Tour of a Lifetime" by National Geographic Traveler
National Geographic Traveler has designated MIR’s Georgia & Armenia: Mountains & Monasteries as a “Tour of a Lifetime” in its May-June 2008 issue. With a maximum of 12 travelers, the Explorer Series tour is a journey into the spiritual, natural, architectural and culinary heritage of the spectacular Trans-Caucasus countries of Georgia and Armenia.
On this active journey, MIR leads travelers deep into the mountainous countries of Georgia and Armenia, rich with fruitful slopes, saw-toothed peaks and unexpected treasures. Meet and interact with local people, staying overnight in village homes in spectacular, steep-sided valleys and taking day hikes past the ruins of ancient fortresses. Survey Yerevan and Tbilisi, sophisticated capital cities with excellent museums, and feel the faith of centuries at medieval churches and monasteries.
