Looking for some information on guides for Armenia for a friend. Turkey is the closest country, so I thought some of you may know where to find some local guides.
Start with googling the major cities. All have some form of a web site and visitor information centers. They will have reference to local guides. Obviously, Armenia is not covered by Rick but other guidebooks will. Your library is your friend.
Here is one I checked out a few years ago. Seemed "okay" but do your homework. I "interview" guides for weeks if not months in advance. Interview = lots of emails cumulating in video conference. https://armeniantourguide.com/ I delayed that trip until after the 2020 war with Azerbaijan, but then didn't book it quick enough before the current war began.
Here is another source to begin looking. I have found guides on here in the past, but only if I can contact them off the platform. Many that are listed have real businesses with web pages and a legitimate business. Some are just doing it part time. https://www.toursbylocals.com/find_guide&area=740
And you can always just google Armenia private tour guide. You will get hits. Check out TripAdvisor too.
