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, Kond historic neighborhood, Dzoragyugh ethnographic area (with breathtaking views of the Victory bridge, the brandy factories and Mount Ararat), St. Hovhannes 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.
