  • On day 6 we will cross the border into Georgia. Your Azerbaijani Tour Director will only accompany you through to the checkpoint. After completing formalities, you are required to walk across the neutral zone via a bridge, unaccompanied by a guide. The walk will take approximately 10 minutes and you will need to carry your own luggage. You will be greeted by your Georgian Tour Director once you arrive at the border and complete formalities at the Georgian checkpoint. Your luggage may be checked and scanned by authorities at checkpoints.
  • On day 16 we will cross the border into Armenia. Once we arrive at the border, you will need to exit the bus with your passport and walk through the checkpoint. We then board the same bus and cross the bridge through the neutral zone. Once we arrive at the Armenian checkpoint, we leave the bus and say goodbye to our Georgian Tour Director. You will need to carry your luggage through the indoor checkpoint. Our Armenian guide and bus will be ready to greet us at the exit. Your luggage may be checked and scanned by authorities at checkpoints.
