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.

Response from Tigran
Hi Joaquim! Thank you for your feedback. Why negative I thought all is okay during our tour and you are enjoying your time during the tour😊 In cas your main reason was for low rating my speech please note I usually ask and check during my tour if my speech and my English is clearly understandable for everyone😊 and usually past customers confirmed that all is okay with my English and my speech they understood me very clear way it could be great if you mentioned during our tour about my speechb as I could adjust my speech however you were expecting😊 I try to speak slow usually during my tour and check time after time if walkers can understand me easily😊 Have a nice day and wish you positive vibes!
