Full description
You will be picked up from your hotel where the tour will start at 10:00 am and last approximately 4 to 5-hours. The first stop is Garni, a Pagan Temple referred to as the well-known symbol of pre-Christian Armenia that was converted into a royal summer house. After exploring the grand structure, you will then stop at Ararat ARC where you'll have a fantastic view to mount Ararat, a snow capped dormant volcano situated in Turkey. From here, you will visit the UNESCO listed Geghard Monastery Complex. Some of the churches are situated in caves, whilst others are dug out of the surrounding rock surface. You will then be transferred back to Yerevan.

The Garni and Geghard route is an excellent half day excursion if you want to see more of Armenia and it’s history outside of Yerevan. But the real gem of this tour is the guide. Nvard’s knowledge and passion in sharing her great country is unmatched, friendly and professional. Highly recommend!
