Noravank is great. Khor virap without the view of the Ararat is nothing great. So travellers should make sure that they chose a day when clear sky is evident. Geghhard js possible the best monastry

Good way to see some sites but depends on the tour guide you get

Group Tour: Echmiadzin (Cathedral, Treasury and churches), Zvartnots temple | Dec 2019
This day trip was good for seeing the monuments included, but the tour wasn't facilitated very well. English speakers had to wait while Russian speakers were given information about the sites, but when the guide was speaking in English several of the Russian people on the tour spoke over her and had conversations in Russian so much of the information was missed. This could have been avoided if the English speakers (which were a smaller group) were allowed to walk away and explore while the information was being given in Russian, and vice versa. We did not manage to explore many of the monuments as we would have liked because so much time was wasted standing around waiting for the Russian group to get all of the information.

Group Tour: Garni pagan temple, Geghard monastery, Lake Sevan, Sevanavank | Aug 2019
This was a great day-trip to see and learn about some historical sites and attractions of Armenia. I totally enjoyed it and would certainly recommend it to others. The entire trip was made very pleasant by our excellent tour guide Vard (not sure if I got her spelling right). She single handedly managed a bus full of tourists in such a lovely and patient manner. And more important, was always there to answer questions and share with us so much about the history of Armenia. A word of thanks to the driver Narik as well for driving us safe.

Group Tour: Dream trip to South of Armenia in 2 days | Aug 2019
I saw a lot of good things on this tour but I felt cheated when, after a long bumpy ride, we were only given 40 minutes to explore Khndzoresk caves area, most of that time spent descending/ascending 400+ wooden stairs. I also felt sorry for a woman behind me who had trouble climbing the stairs to meet the unreasonable deadline. This tour could use better time management.

Group Tour: Khor Virap, Noravank, "Devil's" bridge, Tatev (wayback on Ropeway) | Aug 2019
This was a really good trip, a completely full day of great sightseeing. We started around 9:00 AM and drove to several sights. The tour guides were awesome. This was an action packed day, driving through the beautiful scenery of Armenia, straddling the border with Azerbaijan and Turkey. Some tour guides might try to spread this out over two days as the driving distance is far. You get alot of value on this trip. Great job. Highly recommend.

Private Half-Day Khor Virap Monastery & Mount Ararat view Tour from Yerevan | Jul 2019
The guide was so literate, and articulate. She knew so much about Armenia, I was completely moved by the experience. I haven’t stopped thinking about the conversation we had. Mt A was breathtaking and the closed border is the most unique situation I’ve ever encountered.
