Do not book with the tour company.
micki, Sept 2022
We did not get to go on this tour with this operator because they gave us the incorrect time to meet. We were at the location well before the time they gave us, but they never came. When I called they said the tour already left, we were supposed to meet 45 minutes before the time we were given. I explained this, but they refused to schedule another tour or give us a refund. Don't use this tour company for anything.

Dear customer, You have required pick up service from Hobby hotel. We have agreed with the guest to meet at 09:15 am at the hotel. Our driver was there exactly at 09:15 am and has been waiting for you till 09:45 am, after which he left the hotel as we didn’t succeed to contact you by the provided contact details, neither from Viator message box. At 10:05 am when the tour has already departed, you called us with the request to pick you up, however our operators informed you that the tour has already departed. There was no our fault in this issue.
History and local colour, worthwhile trip.

Comfortable journey through hot terrain
Danny_C, Jun 2022
The whole journey was very comfortable. The drive was great and the sights themselves were definitely worth it. Our driver Arman and guide Inga were excellent. Id recommend to any traveler visiting Armenia.

Great Tour Guide
Itri_A, May 2022
Karina, our Tour guide was excellent. The locations were fabolous. The only problem was the driver called Josef. He drove recklessly and we were about to have a serious accident.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you for the review! Kindly note that Joseph has a long year experience in driving and he is a very skilled driver. Probably the road condition in some parts of the rout arose your impression and fair complain! Hope to have another chance for hosting you in the future!

Perfect Tour for a Short Trip
Lauren_T, May 2021
Excellent walking tour - Shushan showed me the significant landmarks in Yerevan, providing historical context and giving me a great workout (the Cascade stairs are no joke). I had limited time in the city, and Shushan made sure I covered the highlights. Highly recommend.
Response from Host, May 2021
Thank you so much for the review and kind words! It will be pleasure to host you in Armenia also in future!
11/10! A must do tour!
sanventures, May 2021
I don't know where to start! Hyur is definitely a top-notch travel company! Very organised and informative! We had a great time with our group and Karine (tour leader). Hands down to Karine for doing the tour in multi language (EN and RU). Thank Hyur for the great experience!
Response from Host, May 2021

Easy and fun day tour
mtp0729, Jan 2019
This is our first day tour in Armenia and luckily there's no hiccups. The driver pick us up on time and drop us of to their office to join the group tour. It was mixed of Russian and English speaking tourist but the tour guide handled it well. We visited Garni and Geghard and able to try the traditional Lavash baking. A really must see places 😊

marguerite s, Aug 2017
The trip was really nice and the places visited are really worth it. the time given to every place is exactly the needed time and our guide was really nice and gave us good information about every place visited and even on all the activities that we can do in Armenia and the a brief history about the country. the only problem is that it's not a small group Trip and the guide was explaining everything in three languages Russian, English and Armenian but it was organized in a way that the English explanations are at the end so we have time to take pictures and explore the place first alone.

Zesheng_D, Jul 2017
1. The time for geghard is Too limited. Not enough to cover 2. It said small group when purchasing. However, it is not. Totally 39 people on the bus. Plus it's for 2 languages- English and Russia. The guide needs to speak twice : in English and Russian. This is not good at all 3. management is bad

Eleanor S, Jan 2017
We were a full coach for this trip so small group is a slight misnomer!, but it was still an incredible day. The temple is awesome, and the monastery too, and our guide was excellent in English and Russian and we found out so much history. The baking demo was fun but the big group made it a bit hard to see the process... and a bit of a scrum to get to sample the results as well! But a very enjoyable day.

I was a bit surprised when the small group was actually a big bus with 45 people in it, but the tour guide Lel was absolutely fabulous, and every thing went smooth. Highly Recommended.

Bonne organisation, dans un bus climatisé, bouteille d'eau fournies. Une fois sur les sites, on peux suivre le guide ou bien la faire solo. J'ai apprécié le transport, les explications et les sites proposés.
