Main Tour

Pls read all the details here, ask you friends coming with you to read too. This is a 3 hour-walking-talking-and-standing-tour. So, please be sure that you can do it and then reserve.

Our Main Tour is the original first free walking tour of Yerevan. The concept and the itinerary were created by us almost 9 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 2805-year-young-city. We show you the houses of the descendants of royalty and aristocracy and the big merchants of the South Caucasus. We go to a hip artsy neighborhood. We give you directions on where to eat, drink and party in the center of the city…
