From Tbilisi: Small Group Tour to Armenia with Lunch

1. From Tbilisi: Small Group Tour to Armenia with Lunch

Visit two of Armenia’s ancient monasteries and the town of Alaverdi on this small group tour from Tbilisi. Cross over the border with your experienced guide who will take you through the highlights of Northern Armenia in just 1 day.   Depart at 9:00 AM sharp for a 1.5-hour trip across the Georgian-Armenian boarder. Almost immediately you’ll start to notice changes in the landscape—the fields will become rocky mountains and the scenery takes on a certain apocalyptic touch, due to the many abandoned Soviet mines and factories. Your first stop is the fortified monastery of Akhtala, where you can marvel at the beautifully preserved frescoes and learn about the thrilling history of this Georgian-Armenian creation.   Then, you’ll reach the UNESCO-listed monastery complex of Haghpat, where you’ll learn about the Armenian stone crosses and the mystical poet Sayat-Nova. The next stop is a small authentic restaurant by the river, where you can try authentic Armenian cuisine. Travel another 30 minutes to the center of the town of Alaverdi, famous for being the hometown of MIG fighter jet engineer Mikoyan, and the 10th century monastery of Sanahin. Arrive back in Tbilisi by around 6:00 PM after a full and fascinating day.

I did enjoy this tour a lot!! We had great guide (sorry but forgot the name!!) who took us on slightly off the beaten path visits ( apart of what was in the itinerary). Was really different tour to what I expected - much more entertaining!! We had amazing lunch (there were vegetarian options for me). Luckily the border crossing was very quick. I would definitely recommend going for this trip to anyone who would like to see a bit of Armenia but doesn't have much time. Great value for money and guaranteed great time!!

Very interesting and complete tour. You will visit beautiful and very surprising spots in the north of Armenia where you can take great pictures. Lunch with the group was great and a really nice experience. And Irakli was the perfect guide, very professional, with great conversation and knows every single detail of the places you visit. If you are looking for an immersion to Armenia, this is the right tour for you. Totally recommended.

it was really a great experience, enjoyed all of the stops we had and beautiful sightseeing. Local cuisine is also great, so overall great impression

Great tour guide. Very knowledgeable and fun. The ride itself goes through Armenian mountains and it’s gorgeous

amazing day with great views, interesting topics, information and delicious food!
