Argo Cable Car - Review
Essentially an entertainment center, the Argo Cable Car in Batumi is nestled on the city’s Anuria Mountain, at an altitude of 250 meters above sea level. Apart from great entertainment this entertainment also offers some stellar views of the city. Go just before sunset and you are bound to have one of the most magical experiences Batumi has to offer. Picture this – the Black Sea, surrounding rugged mountains and the entire city view from an ascending elevation with the warmth and light of a crimson subsiding sun; simply perfect for beguiling evening in Batumi.
Atop the mountain at the entertainment center are many shops, restaurants and cafes, just enough to keep you entertained. This attraction also accommodates some open-air podiums and halls along with stunning roof terraces. Deriving its name from the several Argo symbols that include a ship that mythical Jason and Argonauts cruised in to Kolchida.
You can stay back till as late as post-midnight during the summers, so you can enjoy every restaurant, café and of course, some retail therapy. All in all, a great place to spend a gorgeous evening in Batumi.

Argo Cable Car, Batumi Reviews
Was a lovely experience - long queues however so be prepared for the wait, but the views along the way up to the top and from up are fantastic and worth the price wait. The ride to the top was also I believe 15 mins or so. There is a wine outlet there with good large collection of Georgian wines / Brandy’s and Vodka and also allow wine tasting. There is a cafe and some retail shops which are fairly priced. Overall we liked the experience.
Good view of old and new batumi... only 15 gel per person. Worth for money.. around 30 minutes travel. There is a coffee shop at the top and a very good view point..
It's a nice cable car ride (10 minutes, one way) that gives you a good and beautiful overview of the city. At the time of visit (June 2018) it cost 15 GEL for a return trip. At the downtown station, there is a small bar to buy drinks. I didn't see any toilets, but maybe they are somewhere. At the top station, there is a restaurant and small souvenir shop. The view from the top is really amazing. What you could do, is to walk back to the downtown station (according to maps it's a 1,5 hour walk).
Nothing special. The view is just ok. The price is high for what you get. There is some kind of animation once you are up there that is absolutely horrible and can ruin the time you spend there, loud and crappy. In my humble opinion, it's not worth it. You can have better views from the city just walking.
Very smooth and not too fast New cable (2012). It took us less then 30 minutes to buy a ticket and to go through the queue Nice view on top (see photo)
