          The monastery Khor Virap stands before the snowcapped flanks of Mount Ararat offering a spectacular view of the mountain, the national symbol of Armenia. It is where Grigor Luisavorich (St. Gregory the Illuminator) was imprisoned for 13 years before curing King Trdat III of a disease. This caused the adoption of Christianity in Armenia in the year 301. In fact, the name Khor Virap means “deep pit”, named after the prison where St. Gregory the Illuminator was held. You can still open climb down the pit using a narrow ladder in order to experience its atmosphere.

          Great driver made a difference.
          Our driver (chose that option) was a lovely man and did give us plenty information about the sites and has happy to comply to our needs. He knew enough English and made our day and experience a lovely one. The sights were all great!

          Saturday around Armenia
          It was a short trip to Yerevan, so we had just one day to stay away from the capital exploring Armenia. The day was costumised according to what we wanted to see. Khor Virap, Noravank and Lake Sevan were the highlights. Robert, the driver was very nice. Punctual and skilled driver in the mountains. I recommend Jan Armenia Tours and Travel services to help you to make the most of your time while visiting Armenia.

          Efficient and safe transfer from Tbilisi to Yerevan
          Was wonderful and safe. Iwas picked up.on time from the hotel, the driver took me though the border crossing easily and waited for me. He took me to a great roadside restaurant for a meal and we had another stop for a coffee break. He waited while I visited 2 sites which were amazing. Also he pointed out Dilijan and lake Sevan as we drove past. He got me safely to the hotel in Yerevan.

          Incredible 1000% Recommend
          This was an incredible trip by Arman and his driver. I could not have asked for more - his knowledge, kindness and attention to detail were outstanding. I did this as a solo traveller not in a group. Both made me feel safe and looked after. I would 1000% recommend Arman and his driver for any trips you have. I absolutely loved my trip and got some amazing pictures

          Land of Noah is professional and great to work with
          Land of Noah is so great to work with. I booked two tours through WhatsApp. Drivers arrived early. Arhur was a stand out driver. Both drivers were safe and helped us when we needed it. Thanks Land of Noah - you have made our adventures easy and safe.

          A fab 1/2 day out!
          Loved our tour with Arhur. He was so friendly and obliging. We wanted to see and play in the snow, so he took us up and we played and loved it! The snow was deep, and was so great for desert kids like us, to feel the cold on our bones 🤣 We were so fortunate to be involved in Easter Sunday services at the monasteries, which is something we will never forget. Our driver was safe, considerate, helpful and was knowledgeable and happy to share what he knew about the area. Thank you Arhur,

          A wonderful trip, our driver/guide was fantastic, never rushed us. Took us to all the locations on the trip. Even an extra viewpoint. If you come to armenia, definitely book this specific trip. You'll see everything. A great day and totally worth it.

          We had an amazing time on our tour! Our driver, Artur, was exceptional—friendly, knowledgeable, and always ensuring our comfort. The sights were breathtaking, even though we visited in the off-season. Highly recommend this tour for anyone seeking a memorable adventure with top-notch service!

          Dear Arevik, I wanted to take a moment to express my utmost satisfaction with the service I received during my recent trip to Armenia. The planning and execution were impeccable by yourself, making our experience truly memorable. Your willingness to accommodate any last-minute changes made our trip even more enjoyable, you demonstrated a level of flexibility and professionalism that truly impressed us. However, what truly stood out was the exceptional service provided by Arthur (driver). From the moment we met, he greeted us with a warm smile and went above and beyond to ensure our comfort throughout the journey. His helpfulness knew no bounds, always ready to assist us with anything we needed. He never hesitated to accommodate our requests, making us feel valued as customers. I must emphasize that his positive attitude made all the difference in our experience. Thank you once again!!!!

          Amazing guide - Arman
          This tour was amazing. A must try when in Armenia. But what made it more amazing and an experience of a lifetime was the tour guide Arman. He was knowledgable and well spoken. Our trip to Armenia was good simply because of this.

          Interesting and unique
          Our trip did not include a visit to Areni winery (we went as part of one of the other tours we took on a different day). This was one of our favorite tours while in Armenia. Arev was our tour guide and Artur was our driver. We were amazed to see Khor Virap and learn about the shocking history of this place. We were able to climb down into the prison cave (it was a bit scary to use the latter but very interesting to see the cave). We also really loved seeing Noravank, located in such a breathtaking location. It is surrounded by red rock cliffs and is such a unique landscape. We highly recommend this tour!

        I highly recommend this tour - our guide, Arman and driver arrived promptly at our hotel to escort us to Khor Virap which is a short drive from Yerevan. Arman was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English, and provided us with the history behind the monastery as well as some general background to Armenia and the evolution of Yerevan as the country’s capital. Thank you to Land of Noah travel and we look forward to joining you on another tour when we are back in Armenia!

        Visiting Khor Virap was an unforgettable journey into Armenia's rich history and breathtaking landscapes. The tour expertly combined cultural immersion with stunning views of Mount Ararat. The awe-inspiring silhouette of the ancient monastery against the backdrop of the majestic mountain was truly a sight to behold. Exploring the underground chambers where Saint Gregory was imprisoned added a deep spiritual dimension to the experience. The driver's passion and knowledge brought the site to life, providing captivating stories and historical context. This tour is an absolute must.
