All about the trip
One Day Trip to Armenia is the best possibility of visiting a new country just one day and seeing how different two neighboring countries might be. You explore 2 UNESCO heritage sites, try delicious local food, see how local people live, and feel the influence of the Soviet Union. Visiting such historical places makes you think that time is changing with centuries in just a few minutes. You think you are traveling with a time machine, but it is just our car driven through these beautiful places.
Our guide picks you up from the hotel at 09:00 and takes you to our company for the check-in procedure, then an unforgettable trip begins.
It takes an hour to get to the border and around 40 minutes to cross it. You’ll be able to exchange money after entering Armenia in Armenian currency. However, it is a bit complicated at restaurants and souvenir shops to pay by card. Because of this, it is better to have local currency.
After crossing the border, we stop at a local shop to exchange money and buy the local product.
The first sight of the tour which we visit is Akhtala Monastery. A church from the 13th-century with beautiful frescoes, surrounded by copper smelting caves, a copper smelting factory, and the central defensive fortification of the southern part of Georgia.
Armenia is famous for its cuisine. With delicious food, you can taste many different traditional Armenian dishes at the lunch place.
The second destination of the tour is Haghpat monastery, located in Haghpat village, and is a UNESCO heritage site. One of Armenia's most beautiful medieval masterpieces takes your breath away.
After lunch, we visit the second UNESCO heritage site called the Sanahin Monastery, one of the most beautiful monasteries from the 10th-century. On the way to Sanahin Monastery, three extra stops are available: one for the bridge, which is originally from the 12th-century and from the bridge you see a copper smelting factory which makes you feel the time of the Soviet Union; the second place is Debed canyon with an astonishing view; the third sight Mikoyan Brothers’ Museum which will amaze you with original aircraft MiG 21.
From the last stop to the border, it takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes. The average time for crossing the border is 45 minutes in the evening.What Wikipedia says about Haghpat Monastery
