What to expect

As the name of this group tour, the things you will enjoy are the exquisite antiques and the history of Armenia. So, if you are planning to have an exciting trip with your group, book this tour. However, if you have visited the country before, then it will refresh you. Travel Armenia and explore what you have not seen yet.

The itinerary of this tour package starts from the alluring Khor Virap monastery. It is the epitome of history, only an hour from Yerevan. It is a perfect example of views representing Armenia’s defining symbol, the majestic Ararat. Generally, the meaning of “Khor Virap” is “Deep Dungeon” built of the former Royal prison, a historical place on Artashat. This jail was famous because it kept Gregory the Illuminator for a total of 13 years. He was the first head of the Armenian Apostolic Church.

This trip continues, and you will visit the Areni-1 “Birds’ cave”, an archaeological site in Armenia. It is known for the evidence of several elaborative burial rituals and agricultural practices. This cave was discovered in 2008 by archaeologists. The most exciting things uncovered from this cave are the oldest pair of leather shoes, almost 5500 years old and the winery of about 6100 years of age. This place is claimed from the Early Bronze Age, which is many, many years ago.

Then we head to visit one more exciting location, the Noravank monastery. Noravank has stunning medieval Armenian architecture in the brick-red cliffs. An excellent thing you will notice is the depiction of the Father in Armenia that looks similar to Jesus Christ on the dome of the Church’s narthex. The Orbelian noblemen constructed the Noravank monastery, which is this noble family’s grave. Surprisingly, during the 14th century, burying people in the Church was forbidden.

Now, we take some rest from the trip and have a traditional lunch. After getting the energy from food, we will move forward to visit the “Old Areni” winery. This place has the classic taste of wine that will impact your tastebuds. You can have a tour of the entire winery, and then after completing the trip, we will take you to the monument to A. Tamanyan.

A vital thing is yet to be covered about this tour. Yerani Travel offers the best minibuses to make the trip comfortable for you. The other thing that includes the cost of the group tour in Armenia is entry tickets to visit sights, guide service, and lunches. So, pick this best deal and book a group tour for yourself.
