Yerevan: Garni, Geghard & Lake Sevan Tour with Lavash Baking

1. Yerevan: Garni, Geghard & Lake Sevan Tour with Lavash Baking

Start the tour at 10 AM by arriving at the local operator's office in Yerevan. After checking in, set off towards the Eastern part of Armenia in a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle. First, make a short stop at Charent's Arch where you can soak up the wonderful views to the biblical Mount Ararat. Them, head over to the Garni pagan temple which towers over a triangular cape. Admire the temple's blend of Greco-Roman and Armenian styles and see the ruins of the former royal palace with its stunning mosaics. After this, continue on to a masterpiece of 13th-century Armenian architecture at Geghard Monastery. Learn about how this cave monastery was believed to have housed the relic of the lance that pierced the side of Jesus as he hung on the cross. Experience its incredible construction which boasts fascinating acoustics which has served as a good place to sing spiritual songs. Marvel at some of the churches in the complex which are masterfully hewed into a huge rock. Discover how the complex is rich in subtle sculptural embellishments and many striking khachkars (cross-stones). Next up, stop for lunch at a cozy family-style restaurant called Abelyan House. Here, also watch the process of baking the Armenian lavash bread. Observe how the dough is rolled out flat and slapped against the hot walls of a clay oven. Have a good opportunity to participate in a lavash baking procedure. Savor the opportunity to taste it afterward with local cheese and greens. Following this, pop over to the amazing Lake Sevan, which is one of the world's greatest high altitude fresh-water lakes. Learn about how the lake is of volcanic origin and is surrounded by mountains of 3000 m and higher. Immerse yourself in the beautiful landscape surrounded by crystal-clear water. Check out the medieval church complex of Sevanavank Monastery on the peninsular before you head off. Finally, hop back into the vehicle and take the return journey back to the meeting point in Yerevan where the tour concludes.

What people are saying about Sevan

It was an enjoyable tour although I could not understand why some people complained at the end. I am not the easiest person on the planet, and I enjoyed it! The tour guide was knowledgeable (I can't remember the name right now, a man with a name starting in S, maybe Samuel?), patient and friendly. The tour had a good pace although it was long - a good day out. The sightseeing was interesting. I went solo and met some interesting people too. Lunch was tasty and I could order a glass of good wine for a minimal fee. I suggest you go early as I arrived exactly on time and I did not have a good seat on the coach. Very good tour, recommended.

This is excellent value for money. The tour guide was really friendly and struck a good balance between giving information and not being annoyingly over-talkative. The itinerary is great and a lot is packed into one day. I would have liked to have spent more time in Dilijan is the only thing, we literally stopped for a photo and then continued. Lunch was also excellent (not included in the price but it was equivalent to about €10 for two courses + coffee).

The trip was organized in a great way and I was grateful to observe these beautiful landscapes. The group was international and the overall experience was very positive.

I had a great time, Anahit was very knowledgeable and Arayik was the best. I wish you all the success in the future. Thank you, Jasmine
