Our Main Tour is the original first free walking tour of Yerevan. The concept and the itinerary were created by us 8 years ago. It 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, food’n’drinks, architecture, religion, language, cultural and night life, etc. It takes you to the main sites (Republic Square, Northern Avenue, Aznavour Square, Opera, Cascades, etc.) as well as to 19th Century typical backyards and alleys and hidden places of old Yerevan, telling you the secrets and interesting and fun stories about our 2804-year-young-city.
This is a 3-hour-walking-and-standing-tour, with a lot of talking and info. So, come prepared for that 😉
An optional ending of the tour is going to a local bar or restaurant.
