During our walking tour I can show you in detail fascinating places in Yerevan and have some great stories to tell. I want our tour to be fun and informative and I will gladly assist in any help you may need after your trip. ***Remember that happiness is a way of travel, not a destination!*** 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

He’s well informed and historically inclined but not really fun. Good choice if u want detailed information but the tour felt a bit like a college lecture

Tigran gave us an excellent and fun introduction to Yerevan. He was genuinely interested in what we wanted to know more of and covered those topics and more. He gave us tips and advice too on what to do on the rest of our trip. We had a brilliant tour.

Even though I had already been in Yerevan for a few days the tour showed me places that I hadn't seen or even knew about. Very informative without getting to bogged down with facts and figures.

The tour led by Tigran was really great. I felt that he tried to share many things as much as possible also considering our needs for the tour. I recommend that you join the tour with him. You cannot miss any important things in Yerevan.
