Tigram was our guide for the Yetev cultural tour . He was very knowledgeable about the history of Armenia. He took us around the Republic Square and old inside alleys to show us an old library cum cafe in a centuries old building, to an old wine cellar , let us try some buckthorn juice and Armenian bread, an opera theatre and various statues of important people of Armenia, a carpet making unit and the like, which you normally don’t get to see. Three and a half hours went by quickly and interestingly. A great tour indeed.

It’s truly the best walking tour I have done. Tigran is so passionate, kind and wonderful person. We loved every aspect of his tour! I have done a lot of walking tours in different cities but Tigran went well above and beyond my expectations. He gave us restaurants/bars recommendations. We tried some great local food. This trip has everything to be the best! Thank you Tigran, keep up with the great work

Tigran was a superb host. Very knowledgeable, interesting and passionate. Loves his city and clearly enjoys showing it off. Also gives great insight into the Armenian people and their character. Please don't be put off by the length of the tour (asi almost was). Yes, it is 3 and a half hours which is longer than most tours I have been on, but there are a number of rest breaks to try some Armenian food and drink. Great introduction to Yerevan
