Above the sprawling city, Argo Cable Car offers wide-open views of rooftops, sea, and lush hills that surround the area. At 250 m (820 ft) above sea level, this sightseeing center provides visitors with some unmatched views. Hop into a blue enclosed gondola with panoramic glass walls and head for a dramatic 2,586 m (8,484 ft) downhill ride. The cars have space for eight passengers, making it possible to transport up to 186 visitors from the hill to the city each hour.

  • The price of the trip is 15 read, during the ascent, the cabin sleeps 6 but during the descent 3 only. Got to the top, we discover a gift shop and a café, drinks are a little expensive. Here we have a very nice view of Batumi and during the trip also.

  • Great view at the top of the Hill you can eat or drink something if you have a moment, city centre restaurants music you are bored to watch the panoramic views of the city can be a different experience as.

  • I was driving in rainy weather on the mountain. Initially, it was foggy and the view of almost zero. Fortunately the clouds lifted after 15 minutes suddenly and beautiful photo opportunities offered themselves. On the mountain, also professional photographers running around that for manufacture souvenir photos and print out directly on-site. I have not used this service. Had it been raining even longer, the ride with the cable car would have been literally in the water. Without a clear view of the trip up the mountain makes no sense. The cable car itself: the cabins are modern and it's not raining in. The trip takes you over a relatively long distance, so that you can make many photos. Except when it rains, then the Windows fogged up.

  • 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).
  • Adjust your time 1hr before sunset, very nice view and nice georgian show.
  • It was wonderfull. we (me and my family) use it in a rainy day. we enjoy it. in the end of line in top of hill, there are some handycraft shop. and a good place to drink coffe. good view of city with camera. the opening time may change over seasons. so befor going there , plese check Argo working time. when we arrive there, it was close but becouse of good place, we go around shoping center, eat tea and use sea view chairs till it opend. the ticket was not expensive.
  • Good vew. But nathin else to do on top)))
