Went for a spectacular tour with Yervani Travel, all the way down to Khndzoresk and Tatev Monastery. Booking was seamless with perfect assistance, and the tour itself has been brilliant, a dream experience. Armina & Arman took awesome care of us and helped us to reach the places we wanted to go despite the snow and the issues of the season. Armenia has a lot to offer to tourism, and definitely this is the kind of service and professionalism needed to bring the country forward.

Tatev, Armenia is home to the beautiful 9th century Monastery of Tatev, which also served as a university in the 14th and 15th centuries. All around you can find breathtaking views. Our guide Arevik from Yerani Travel gave a good explanation re the historical background of Tatev monastery.
