Tbilisi to Yereven

I plan to travel on my own to Georgia and Amrenia in late March but only have 7-9 days. My plan was to spend 3/4 days based Tbilisi and then travelling down to Yerevan for a similar amount of time.

I understand the overnight sleeper train is unreliable. Can anyone recommend a better way to travel between the two cities, maybe a driver or tour operator?

Any additional information on hostels that offer good excursions would also be useful.

I can recomend this way:Tbilisi>Mtskheta>Gori(Uplistsikhe)>Borjomi with Vardzia>Akhaltsikhe>Yerevan

(From Akhaltsikhe to Yerevan the buses(mini-buses) are going out every day.

Hi there I did this route last year. You have two options The first is to go to the Tbilisi train station where there are set time departures by Minibuses to Yerevan. -the last one is at 5pm and the whole trip takes 6 hours. I was unlucky and the day I left the 1pm only left at 3pm but this is unusual and its usually straightforward. . You can get a visa for armenia at the border. You have the same option from the Tbiliis bus station. In this instance the buses leave when full. If you want a great hostel option in Yerevan then stay at Envoy. The hostel is great and they do trips to different parts of Yerevan on a daily basis including lunch in a private home which was brillialnt. I did three trips and they were all fantastic, especailly if you get Marina as your guide. The hostel is also excellent and the facilities are very good. They have dorms and privates and the rates are good. Highly recommend.

have a great trip. In Tbilisi recommend ska daveli guest house. The guy that runs speaks fluent english and is fantastic.

have a great trip
