Our Alternative Yerevan Walking Tour covers areas which are not regularly visited by tourists, on the west side of the center of Yerevan; the Kond pedestrian tunnel, Children’s Railway Station, Kond historic neighborhood, Dzoragyugh ethnographic area (with breathtaking views of the Victory bridge, the brandy factories and Mount Ararat), St. Sargis Church, the Blue Mosque, the covered market, etc.
It includes some good (and bad 😉 ) graffiti, the oldest surviving private houses in Yerevan and general info about history, architecture, art and culture…
We finish the tour on Mashtots Avenue and give you a free copy of Backpackers’ Map of Yerevan.
What time do we meet?
Any day, but by reservation only*.
Where do we meet?
By the entrance to the History Museum on Republic Square. Not by the pond, not by the fountains. The address of the museum is 4 Republic Square, and we meet by it’s main entrance (on the Republic Square side not on Aram Street). Pls note that when you Google our tour it leads you to another tour on Google Maps as our tour listing was merged into the other tour by mistake. So, if you chose our tour reserve* on our site 😉
How do we find the guide?
Look for the guide with Yerevan Free Walking Tour (orange logo) badge. We don’t use umbrellas or flags.
For the time being the tour is available only in English.
How long does it take?
Around 2 hours.
How many kilometers does it run?
Around 4 km.
Is it an easy walk?
It is, but it includes a few hundred meters of uphill-downhill roads in the gorge and the Kond neighborhood.
Do we do the tours if it rains or snows?
How much is it?
Free (tip-based). Free walking tours are done almost everywhere in the world. Guides don’t get paid a fixed salary. Travelers don’t pay anything up ahead, but tip the guide at the end. It’s up to the traveler to appreciate the tour and decide how much to give.
