Handcrafted, Private Tours to Armenia


You want to do things your way. We get it. MIR has been planning custom, private tours from scratch for over three decades, and we understand just how important flexibility is in travel.

Traveling privately on a custom private tour affords a great deal of flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, to go at your own pace, and to travel when it’s right for you.

How does it work? We’ll connect you with one of our Private Tour Designers so that you can share your vision and expectations with us.

We’ll ask you questions to better learn about your interests: Want to visit an herbal tea factory and try your hand at mixing your own blend? How about dinning at a local’s home and trying his home-distilled flavored vodkas and Armenian cheese?

We’ll share our extensive experience in the region – and our suggestions. And then we’ll dig into it and custom-craft a private tour itinerary for your review. Give us a call at 800-424-7289 to get started, or click here to be on your way.
