Tour description

*** 10th ANNIVERSARY ***

This is the original, first free walking tour in Yerevan. We started doing this tour around 10 years ago and it's constantly improved and updated.
Our Main Tour was created from scratch, based on the concept of free, tip-based tours around the world and offered a new understanding on walking tours in Yerevan.
The itinerary was changed a few times and was perfected during the years. It covers around 20 points of interest in the center of Yerevan, plus detailed info about history, art, cuisine, architecture, current affairs, the transport system, where to eat, drink and party, cultural and night life, etc. It takes you to the main sites as well as to back alleys and hidden places, telling you stories and fun facts about our 2805-years-young-city and its people.

We go to sites like:

  • Republic Square
  • The 2750 Park
  • The historic Hanrapetutyan and Abovyan Streets
  • The Northern Avenue
  • The New Old Town of Yerevan
  • The Opera and Freedom Square 
  • The Cascade 
  • 19th century backyards
  • Hidden alleys and buildings.
  • Vernissage Market
  • The Metro
  • A historic church
  • The Khachkar Park.
  • and much more!

We don't accept early reservations. Pls reserve within 2 weeks of the tour date.

We do the tour if we have at least 5 people. We will inform you if the tour is NOT happening.

The tour lasts around 3 hours, walking around 3.5 km.

At the meeting point look for the guide with our orange logo lanyard badge.
We DON'T use umbrellas, tshirts, flags, etc.

This tour is not suitable for the elderly and babies, toddlers with or without strollers and children under ten. As for older children; you decide, as you know if your child can walk 3 hours and listen to the guide. And pls remember that there are other people on the tour too.

See you soon :)

Excellent tour, both full of advice for where we may want to visit, eat, drink... and history of the town, of the country, of the Armenian people... . The tour over-ran because so much was being crammed into a little time, and Vako was answering our questions as well as feeding our curiosity. He certainly earns his keep! Well planned and executed tour. Well worth doing when you first get to Yerevan. Wish I had more time!
