Group Tour: Dream trip to South of Armenia in 2 days
Discover Armenia’s fascinating history and culture on a full-day tour from Yerevan to Areni, Tatev Monastery, and the cave settlements of Khndzoresk. You’ll learn about locally-made wines, ride the Wings of Tatev tramway, and see the fascinating cave architecture that honeycombs the rocky hills. This 14-hour tour from Yervan includes all transport from a central location, entrance fees, and activities, with an experienced guide to lead the way.
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.
We left Yereven at 9am and came back at 11:45pm. This is really a very long and tiring trip, but the energy and dedication of the tour guide and driver really deserve recognition. From morning until evening, the tour guide had so much histories to share. He was very organized and made sure that everything's in order.
Tatev-Ropeway is really too far, but the sceneries along the way were really awesome.
The tour was nice. We had a great tour guide in Haj (nickname) who provided us with some good knowledge of Armenia and Armenian history. There were no questions that were off limits with him and so it was definitely interesting to hear his opinions on various topics. The tour was good but also very long, so make sure you are prepared for a really long day (8am-1130pm). I would definitely recommend it and would go on another one in the future.
The trip and the places are really nice. the Tatev ropeway and monastery are amazing and the Khndzoresk bridge and caves are really impressing. the guide was really nice and gave us all the needed information about the places we visited and all the provinces we passed through during the trips. she even gave us explanations about the relation of Armenia with the surrounding countries.
It was a nice experience. Khndzoresk was just magnificent, so Tatev monastery. The only problem with the organizers was that in the description they include restaurant and the impression is that it's included in the price but it is not. You have to pay for the restaurant.
A long trip but completely worth it - stunning scenery, fascinating history and a very good guide the tour is run in English and Russian. The cable car to Tatev is a most scenic way to arrive! And the village carved into the Khndzoresk valley walls is unique. We went in early November... a longer day-length would have given us more time at the last stop but we still got to see a lot.
This was definitely the best tour during all of our stay! Everything about it was amazing - our guide Khachatur, who was very friendly and passionate about his work, the stunning scenery on the way, the delicious food at the restaurant in Tatev Wings and of course, the crowning glory of the trip - the longest cable car in the world. I have traveled a fair bit, but I can absolutely honestly say that what you'll see during those 15 minutes in the cable car, will stay with you forever. Next time we are visiting Armenia, I would definitely go back to enjoy this experience for the second time.
Khndzoresk Bridge is for people who like a bit of 'extreme' fun - you have to go up and down more than 450 steps which are attached on the side of a mountain and then make your way over a rope bridge that sways from each gust of wind. However, when seeing the locals come there, bringing the elderly and their kids, a sudden dose of bravery took over me as well. it was an exhilarating experience, especially because at that point it was already twilight and you could see bats flapping everywhere.
It is a long excursion mostly because of the distance, but because of the lovely lot of people, informative guide and comfortable mini-bus, it didn't seem like such a long way. A must go to excursion when in Armenia, definitely!
