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, 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.

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. That’s why we chose Yandex Maps here. So, if you chose our tour reserve* here on our site 😉 you can follow the walking directions on the map to find the exact meeting point.
