We had opted for this trip on our last day in Armenia (was on another package tour till then) so as to utilise our forenoon session as our flight back to Dubai was later in the evening. We had a great experience with Hyur service. Especially our guide, Ms Hamaspyur, took us through explaining in detail everything. She had good information on all the places and the facts about the area.
We were able to visit the Mother Cathedral Museum, where the spear that pierced crucified Jesus.
Ms Hamas and our driver, Mr Gagik, easily managed our limited time and dropped us back on time.
Thanks to both of them for giving us the most fantastic experience on our trip to Armenia

I really enjoyed this tour and seeing many of the important Christian sights of Armenia. I also really enjoyed the driver, Levon. He was punctual, friendly, informative, and made sure to go the extra mile when it came to making the tour comfortable for me. I highly recommend this tour.

Mrs Hamas was very informative, gracious, lovely and explained in detail. She also was very patient explaining things to us. Our driver Mr Gigik too was very helpful and seemed like a father figure . The vechicle too was clean and spacious. Hamas has great love towards her country's. Highly Recomend the team if you want to enjoy Armenia to the full.

Unbelievably Hyur Service allowed me to book this trip on a Monday even though Zvartnots Temple is closed every Monday. Also, be sure to click on and read the "see details and photos" section for each attraction as Echmiadzin Cathedral can only be viewed from the outside but this information isn't listed on the main page of the tour information.

I was initially offered a 50% refund but after firmly clarifying that my whole reason for booking the tour was to visit Zvartnots they agreed to a full refund. I was still unimpressed that due to their lack of professionalism I had wasted half a day as I now needed to reschedule another visit. Probably in the hope that I wouldn't write an honest review they then offered to take me back to the temple the next day without charge. Their resolution was fair, but an honest review is still helpful to other travellers.

Another point to note is that when I was given my refund in cash I was handed 15,000 AMD and told here is your full refund. I had paid 17,222 as quoted on Trip Advisor, so although Trip Advisor guarantees no booking fees it seems that Hyur Service does add a fee.

Thank you for the review! The matter is, that despite the fact that Zvartnots is officially closed on Monday, due to the reason of having large flows of tourists, we have made a special agreement with the management of Zvartnots that they always keep it open for our guests. We have had tours to Zvartnots every Monday and that is the reason why your reservation was accepted and we arranged your tour to Zvartnots. This Monday on January 27, it wasn't possible to have Zvartnots open due to an unexpected accident with the duty employee who was responsible to open the doors for us. We fully understand that it was not your fault at all, that is why we offered you to replace Zvartnots with other site or to refund you half price of the tour as the service wasn't fully provided. When you told us that your main reason of travelling was particularly Zvartnots, we considered fair to fully refund you the amount and to offer you to arrange the tour on the next day complimentary, as a compensation. According to our records the amount at 16.670 AMD was refunded to you which is equal to 35$ paid for this trip via Tripadvisor. Our most important mission is to make people happy with our services presenting our Motherland. Please once again accept our sincere apologies for that unpleasant situation.

I took this private tour from Hyur agency heading to Echmiadzin Holy Cathedral and other churches visits and temple Zvartnots. It was not a long tour (~ 3,5 hrs.), but included 4 most important places. I want to thank you for great experience I had, for outstanding history details and the whole comfort during the tour. I will use your services in future.

Today we had a tour of Echmiadzin Cathedral, and 3 more churches, we are not christians but Tamara (our tour guide) showed us everything. Our driver was Karen. Tamara was very kind, patient, she informed us about the history of those monument. The ride was very short and comfortable. I will totally recommend this tour.
