    This tour will introduce you to the mysterious pagan history of Armenia and explain the spread and influence of Christianity in the country's history. Visit the Temple of Garni, the only standing Greco-Roman temple in the whole post-Soviet area. Standing on a high plateau overlooking the Azat River gorge, the temple is home to a Roman bathhouse which houses a mosaic, made out of 30,000 pieces of natural stones. It also hosts the ruins of the royal palace, dating back to the 3rd-century. Head to the monastic complex of Geghard. The complex is from medieval times, which was considered to be the Golden Age of the country’s architecture. Check out the impressive church cut right out of solid rock.  Drive to the beautiful Lake Sevan surrounded by a vast chain of mountains.

    We appreciated how the tour company messaged us before the day of the trip to welcome us and review the itinerary. The driver showed up right on time and was pleasant and professional. It's important to note that most drivers won't speak English so you may only smile and point to communicate. We were blown away with how magnificent each landmark was. We were given as much time to explore as we wanted. It's also important to note that the driving culture is a bit different than what you may be used to. There's a lot of passing in single lanes and the roads are a bit bumpy; however, you are in very safe hands! I only write that to suggest to anyone who is sensitive to motion to maybe take something before as you'll be driving for hours. I highly recommend this tour!!!

Very interesting tour

Tour organized for us by Yerani was very interesting. The guide had extensive knowledge and told us a lot of interesting facts about history of Armenia and places we had visited. Bus was very comfortable.

Very historical trip to some monasteries in the north of armenia. If you like that kind of a tour it's definitely a very good one. Otherwise it can be a little boring in my opinion.
