Enjoying a private choir performance in the atmospheric cave monastery of Geghard - an incredibly moving experience.


Armenia and Georgia have been forging their own identities following the era of the Soviet Union, making this a fascinating time to explore these countries as they transition. On this tour, you'll spend time with local families, cook traditional meals, journey into the Caucasus Mountains and hike up to hillside monasteries and fortresses. There's history to discover too: Armenia has some of the world's earliest churches, while Georgia was one of the first wine-producing countries, and still makes wine the traditional way today. Expert local guides are a must on Georgia and Armenia tours, and yours will be on hand throughout.

    Khor Virap Monastery was constructed over the dungeon that imprisoned patron saint Gregory the Illuminator. From here, you can admire Mount Ararat - its snow-capped peak is said to be the resting place of Noah’s Ark - and the closed Turkey-Armenia border, 20km away.

    Then in Echmiadzin we’ll see the cathedral. Reputed to be the first official Christian church in the world, it’s the spiritual centre of the Armenian people. It also includes the Cross of Armenian Unity and the chance to participate in carpet weaving or make Armenian dishes.

    UNESCO-listed Zvartnots Cathedral is our last stop. These fascinating ruins showcase a unique architectural style in their grand setting.

    In the Ararat valley grows a unique variety of grapes used to make much-loved Ararat brandy, a brand favoured by the court of His Imperial Majesty Nicholas II and Sir Winston Churchill. Before we taste this national spirit, we take a tour of the factory. Cellars here are full of barrels dating back to the 19th century, and the Peace Barrel, filled with the brandy spirit of 1994, the year when the ceasefire agreement was signed. We'll also visit Yeravan's History Museum today.

After many years, Hercules killed the bird and broke the chains to free Prometheus.
