Hello(Բարև), I was born and raised in Yerevan and I'd be happy to introduce you hidden gems of my beautiful city and guide you around Armenia. Thank you!(Շնորհակալություն) I am licensed tour guide since 2015 and I have extensive background and knowledge in the history of Armenia, which dates back to 3,500 B.C. I graduated from the Yerevan State University, majoring in economics and literature, and then pursued my interests in tourism. My education prepared me very well for this profession as a tour guide. 1.Intensive English Certificate - courses 1st and 2nd level; 15/01/2008 - 23/03/2008. 2.Tour Guide Certificate (provider UNHCR; 13/10/2014 - 01/06/2015) Joke - Are you Armenian test? You might be Armenian if. . . • You think that the Armenians invented everything in the world • You feed your grandchildren when they are not hungry • You think Fresno is the capital of California • At meetings, you MUST state your opinion, and it doesn't matter that it is just EXACTLY the same as someone else's who just spoke

About the Tour

We set out to explore and begin our walk from the beautiful Republic Square through the center of the city till the surprisingly modern waterfalls to enjoy the views of the biblical Mount Ararat. During our walk we discover the ancient culture of Yerevan, the city that, despite numerous invasions, has not lost its unique traditions. Walking along Pushkin Street we visit old backyards dating back to the 19th century and discover old wineries and dental clinics there. During our walk we also get acquainted with Armenian history; Architecture; Geopolitics; Economy; Geography; Traditions; History of religion; etc.). This activity includes: * We start our walk from the Republic Square * Vernissage open air market * Statue of Garegin Nzhdeh (key political and military leader of the First Republic of Armenia (1918-1921)) * Cultural Genocide Park ( Khachkars also known as Armenian stone cross) * Republic Square metro station (discovering the Armenian subway) * Andrei Sakharov Square (Russian nuclear physicist also activist for peace and human rights) * House of Egor Khanzadyan (built in 1895 ) * Abovyan Street (oldest street in Yerevan) * Opera House * Statue of Hovhannes Tumanyan (famous Armenian writer) * Northern Avenue * We finished our walk at Cascade Stairs

Great tour and Tigran is a wonderful guide. He provided a great experience and lots of information that helped me understand the history of Armenia and its people, as well as finding great gems around the Capital.

We enjoyed a lot the walking tour! Tigran, our guide, was very flexible (agreed to postpone the tour by one hour because of the rain and to make it a little shorter), knowledgeable and fun. This is a great way to learn a little about the history of Armenia and Yerevan, local traditions and not to miss cool hidden places known only to locals. Best to do the tour on the first day because Tigran would share his recommendations on several cool restaurants and bars, and can add couple of touristic attractions in your must-see list.

Response from Tigran
Thank you Yana for such a fantastic review! It was great to meet you and your parents and your parents were really friendly and nice people. I hope your mother found in Vernissage the presents which she was searching for and please pass my greetings to her. Thank you again for wonderful day and wish you lovely day there! Tigran
