What people are saying about Yerevan

City Tour and Brandy Factory.

A very interesting tour around Yerevan. Visiting the city and its most interesting places brought me closer to history and today. It was interesting to visit the carpet factory and the ARARAT factory with its interesting history. We watched with interest the museum depicting the old times and the present day of Yerevan. However, a visit to a museum depicting the Armenian tragedy should be a separate topic of the trip. This problem must be treated with greater respect!
