Khor Virap – Armenian monastery, built in 642, translated from Armenian means “deep hole”. Khor Virap is one of the shrines of the Armenian Apostolic Church, a place of pilgrimage. The most interesting fact of this monastery is the fact that it was built on the site of the royal prison, where Gregory the Illuminator was previously imprisoned – the patron saint and the first official head of the Armenian Apostolic Church by the Armenian king for 13 years. From the territory of the monastery there is an unusual view of the biblical mountain Ararat.

Areni is the birthplace of winemaking. Viticulture on the territory of Armenia originated many years before our era. In Armenia, grows a lot of wild vineyard, and a large number of local varieties of grapes. And here there is the oldest winery of Armenia, where you can taste the most delicious wine from the best varieties of grapes.

Noravank Monastery is among the wonderful steep red rocks on the ledge of a meandering gorge. It was founded in the 12th century on the site of ancient buildings. Complex Noravank, thanks to the magnificent creations of medieval architects and its location on the background of a beautiful landscape, leaves an indelible impression. It is one of the majestic monuments of the Armenian medieval architecture.

The Shaki Waterfall is situated in the Syunik region. It provides the most relaxing and wonderful ambiance for everyone. On the left side of the river Vorotan, basalt lava flows have solidified to form a ledge 18 meters high from which the waterfall cascades down.

Tatev Monastery is a 9th century historical monument. It is one of the oldest and most famous monastery complexes in Armenia. During medieval times Tatev Monastery was a vital scholastic, enlightenment and spiritual center and played a singular role in the country’s history. 

Wings of Tatev is the aerial tramway to the natural and historic treasures of Syunik.

Прекрасная страна и не менее прекрасная компания с отличным сервисом

Оставила частчку себя в Армении, в областе Сюник Я пришла с Казахстана, мое первое соло путешествие я организовала в Армению. Я была в Армении где-то 7 лет назад, а теперь все в этой прекрасной стране было иначе. Я решила взять тур в Татевский монастырь, а потом также пользоватся канаткой. Я выбрала эту компанию. потому что туры у них были разнообразные и очень интересные. Моим водителем был Ара, очень дружелюбный и професиональный, знал многое о своей стране. Машина был у нас очень комфортный Мерседес. Все было чисто и это большой плюс. Я пока в Армении и буду еще обратится к Вам.

Private tour in Armenia

I have left part of my heart in the mountains around Tatev. I loved that place so much that I will be back to Armenia once more to go there. Regarding the excursion, I would like to mention that I have found them via tripadvisor, then also saw some reviews in their website and decided to buy from JAN and it was a good decision. I am pleased with the service I got in their office. As the office was in the centre I decided to buy from there. The location of the office is very comfortable (Republic Square of Yerevan). Girls in the office organized the tour really fastly and I didn't have to spend a lot of time there dealing with the booking. We decided to start the tour early because the destination was quite far from Yerevan. We started at 7:30 Our driver Ara took us from our apartament and then we left. Had a stop in a food court and the continued our way due to the itinerary. I am very thankful for this trip and I would choose this company again and again. Thank you.
