The church buildings were constructed from black tuff, which probably gave the monastery its name Sevanavank - “the Black Monastery”.

It was built between the 10th and 13th centuries and has three churches: one named for Gregory the Illuminator; another for the Virgin Mary (Surp Astvatsatsin); and the third for St Stephen (Stepanos). There are stunning khachkars, a sundial on the wall of St Gregory, a ruined gavit and a refectory with stunning arched ceiling.

Stop At: Goshavank Monastery, Gosh Armenia
Monastery Goshavank became one of the most famous religious and scholarly centers in medieval Armenia in the 12th-13th centuries, led by one of Armenia's most accomplished scholars, legal experts and scientists, Mkhitar Gosh (Mkhitar from Gosh, 1130–1213). The monastery was renamed Goshavank upon his death. The monastery was built between 1188 and the late 13th century.

A long, but fascinating day!
Our private guide as Arman, an energetic and thoroughly knowledgeable young man. We felt safe with Asen, our driver, as he navigated the mountain roads and occasional traffic. We had perfectly clear and sunny weather for the dramatic Wings of Tatev cable car ride - we have been on many before and this was one of the best. The Monastery was in a gorgeous setting and very historic. Arman, at our request, took us to a ocal kebab (BBQ) restaurant where we had the emost delicous lunch prepared by locals in a town close to the ropeway. The Khndzoresk cave town was fascinating and scenic and was accessible by a suspension bridge over a deep gorge - not at all scary- even though it is called the swinging bridge. Arman found a local 4x4l driver to take us up and down the hill to the bridge as my husband’s knee was not up to the 700 steps down and back. On the way back, we tasted a large variety of wines at the Areni Winery- a nice break in the long drive, If you wish to see tehe cave in Areni in which the oldest wine in the world was found, ask to see that in the morning to make sure that it will be open., A long but fun and interesting day! Highly recommended.

Wonderful and Amazing expereince/得難いアルメニアの経験が出来ます。
Had very nice experience to go through Armenia. I highly recommend choosing this tour, especially to see many aspects of Armenia in short days. The guide was really kind and helpful, his explanation is very nice to understand the background and history of the sites. As you may know, Armenia has long and holy history. I was able to touch such greatness of this country. セバン湖や、エチミアジン、カスケードといった定番の観光スポットは勿論、イギリスのストーンヘンジより更に古い正体不明の古代石群Zorats karerや5000年前の洞窟住居Areni cave等日本語媒体のガイドブックにはなかなか載っていない場所も案内してくれました。 南部のタテブ修道院や、ノラヴァンク修道院は絶景でした。 3日間のツアーではありますが、短期間でアルメニアを出来る限り回るには非常に素晴らしい内容だと思います。 ガイドもとても親切な方で非常に得難い経験ができます。 旅行中日本人を見かける機会が皆無でしたが、是非とも我々日本人にも接点が増えるといいなと思い、日本語でもレビューを書きました。 極めて古く、かつ苦難の歴史を持つアルメニアの様々な側面を見ることが出来ると思います。

Amazing Company
We did two back to back private day tours. Our driver Zaven was great and we felt super safe. Our guide Liana was fabulous and very informative. She was like a walking encyclopaedia. Land of Noah were great to deal with and always prompt with their responses. Would definitely recommend.

Outstanding custom private tour
I just returned from a trip to the Caucasus and worked with Land of Noah for the 3 day Armenia leg of my trip: 1) Edo and Arman met me at the Georgian border and we proceded to Haghpat, Sanahin, Sevanavank and then Yerevan; 2) Garni, Geghard and Khor Virap; 3) Echiamadzin, Svartnots and the Genocide Museum. They were terrific. Arman speaks excellent English, and Edo added several memorable additions to the trip such as a stop for fresh watermelon and another stop to pick up pieces of obsidian! The trip concluded with Edo doing a really-early morning airport transfer so I could get my departure flight. Just as with the Georgian company I worked with, Expert Guides Georgia, Land of Noah travel is a real Tripadvisor "find."

Best Customer Delight!
This Tour company and our driver/guide/interpreter Artur were one of the best we have encountered in our travels. Our family travels a lot and we have come across many good People and Tour operators but they really stand out from the crowd. Its very obvious that they are very passionate about their country and also about costomer Delight not just satisfaction. Its not about the money for them. Thats very rare. Their heart is at the right place. He helped us find so many hidden gems, anecdotes and interesting and best foods and snacks. He was extremely patient and flexible and we never heard the word No or not possible. I do not think we would have enjoyed our trip as much if we had not used their services. It was a good decision to go with them instead of the more well known and tour operators. We wish them all the best for their company. We will definitely return to Armenia and suggest Land of Noah to our friends who wish to travel there.

Round trip to Dilijan via Lake Sevan
We used Land of Noah on a number of occasions on our trip to Armenia recent (July 2019). Once specific trip was a lovely tour via Lake Sevan to Dilijan. Our driver was very professional. The car was very comfortable, air-conditioned and fit 4 adults plus the driver. Our driver always drove safely and offered to stop whenever we wanted to take photos. He We arrived in Dilijan safe and arranged to be picked up again in two days. Mais arrived ahead of time and we returned to Yerevan in comfort, and safely. WE used this same company on a number of of other accessions for many family outings including a whole day trip to Garni & Geghard with a very large group of our friends and family. Again, very professional service, really comfortable bus, and a safe journey. Highly recommended for your touring needs in Armenia.

Excellent service. Guide and Driver were great
I did 2 full days in Armenia, starting and finishing each day in Yerevan (as I requested). Everything was perfectly organizerd. Very good car and driver (Artur). The guide (liana) was really excellent. She explained everything in a very easy and dinamic way. She speaks English perfectly. We enjoy every place we visited. Armenia is a fantastic destination if you like history, architecture and beautiful landscapes. And Land of Noah helped me a lot in the organization of my trip. Thanks a lot !!!!!
