Tour Overview

Tour description

Explore the history of Hayastan (Armenia) and learn about the Armenian Heritage. Visit an ancient Pagan temple Garni as well as the Christian origins of the country – Geghard Monastery and the Holy Mother Cathedral – Echmiadzin.

We will start the day from your hotel, where you will be met by your guider/driver who will lead you to your car to start the one day trip from Yerevan.

The first stop of the day is going to be the Garni Temple – a wonder of ancient culture. This Pagan temple has stood here for more than 2000 years! We will explore the whole complex with the ancient fortress and amazing roman baths with stunning mosaics from the early days of the complex.

Once we’re done exploring Garni, we will proceed towards Geghard – a Monastery carved out in a cave. A true wonder of medieval architecture. No one knows when the monastery first started functioning, but it’s name – translated “Spear-head” is linked to Jesus Christ. It’s believed that the spear that pierced through the side of Jesus, was kept here in the early days.

We will walk through the mysterious inner rooms of the church as well as taste the holy water coming straight from the underground into one of the Gavits.

Next, we’ll head to a local Armenian family where we will enjoy a home-cooked lunch made especially for us. A great way to get to know Armenian Culture and cuisine.

Afterwards, we will proceed to the religious center of Armenia – Echmiadzin Mother Cathedral. This is where Armenia accepted Christianity as its official religion. Today, here you’ll find Armenia’s most valuable manuscripts and relics. Including a piece of Noah’s ark as well as the Spear mentioned above.

Once we’re done exploring Echmiadzin, we will return to Yerevan and your driver will drop you off at an address of your preference in Yerevan.
