Full description

Start your tour at the Akhtala Monastery, a church from the 12th century which contains beautiful frescoes and is surrounded by copper smelting caves as well as a copper smelting factory. The second destination of the tour is the Haghpat Monastery, located in Haghpat Village and is a UNESCO-listed site. It is one of the most beautiful medieval masterpieces in Armenia. Then you can have lunch and try some traditional Armenian food. Following lunch, you'll make 3 stops on your way to visit the second UNESCO Heritage Site, Sanahin. 

The first will be a 13th-century bridge, the second for a Debed canyon with astonishing views, and the third for the Mikoyan Brothers' museum, where an original aircraft (MiG 21) will surprise you. Finally, travel back through the border to Tbilisi.

My mom and I went on this tour on 30th of January 2023 and we loved this tour! It deserves 5 stars. Our guide Lika is very knowledgeable and super nice. She answers all our questions thoroughly and is very informative. Our driver Gocha is also really friendly. Plus, the homemade lunch at the Armenian family's home was so good. It was the highlight of the trip for me. The 10th century monasteries are also very interesting! You learn a lot from visiting these Unesco heritage sites. Last but not least, the tour company's contact person Tamuna is also very responsive and helpful in giving solutions in arranging our trip, etc. For anyone who needs a visa to enter Armenia, I would just recommend that you apply the online visa at least 3-5 days before the trip to avoid any bureaucratic delays.

Joined a day tour from Tbilisi to Armenia. It was such a fun day having a glimpse of Armenia even for a short period of time. Our tour guide Lika was very helpful and informative. Trying Armenian food for lunch was awesome too. Would definitely recommend this to my friends.

Beautiful views, well planned, fantastic tour guide Catherine and great homemade dinner. Definitely worth recommending if you wish to see a bit of Armenia and don't have much time to spare. The monasteries, mountains and industrial post-Soviet towns are super interesting especially when combined with a great narrative from the tour guide.
