Our Main Tour covers around 20 points of interest in the small center of Yerevan (Pokr Kentron; the circle on the map), plus detailed info about history, art, cuisine, architecture, cultural and night life, etc. It takes you to the main sites (Republic Square, Northern Avenue, Opera, Cascades, etc.) as well as to back alleys and hidden places, telling you interesting historic and contemporary stories about our 2802 years old city. An optional ending of the tour is in a hip bar or a family run local restaurant, where we give you free maps of Yerevan and answer your further questions about Armenia.
What time do we meet?
4 pm (16:00)
In the winter time (meaning nowadays) we still do the tours 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. Please note that the address of the museum is 4 Republic Square, but Google Maps doesn’t configure it yet. So, follow the drop pin on the map here. You can check the photo above for the exact meeting point.

Is it an easy walk?
Yes. But this is a 2.5-3 hours walking and standing tour. So, please be sure that you can do it and come prepared for that; good shoes, sun tan lotion, a bottle of water, etc. in the summer, an umbrella in Spring and Autumn and a good jacket and boots in the winter.
