    Nice Place to Spend Quality Time
    Good Trip , about 20 mins straight up into the mountains, giving a good view of the old and new City, the mountains surrounding, the Black Sea at it's grand. Our trip was hampered due to rains, but we enjoyed the rain and the Cable car. The photography was not the best, as they shld take more than one snap and allow the customer to choose the best

    Best way to taking in the views of Batumi
    No doubt, it’s the only way to enjoy the very best views of Batumi city. Prepare your camera or simply take in the beautiful sight of this city from above. Once you reach to the observation deck, there are more to experience including food, drink and shisha from the restaurant. Stay for as much as you can as every second around is just amazing 😍

    Great view
    Each car seats 8 on a ride to the top of a hill for great views of Batumi. It’s probably not for you if you are afraid of heights. The cables are long and stretch between hills and over valleys on the way to the top. 30Lari per person ($12 US). It’s not worth it in poor visibility but would be spectacular (and crowded) for sunset and in the evening. There’s a cafe at the top (tourist prices) but it’s also slightly cooler and with a nice breeze. A pleasant way to spend an hour.

    Comfortable escape from the heat
    The cable car was a nice escape from the beach up onto the mountain on a hot day. We sat comfortably with a cool breeze at the cafe for a long time. Nice to see Batumi from above.

Argo Cable Car is a really nice way to view the city from above and make some nice memorable pictures.
It's rather cheap and takes you right to the restaurant on the mountain.

View is mid, you'll see a lot of ghettos and malls and some nature. But this is it. Probably would regret the money if I wasn't short in time. Staff are amazing and make everything up though.

Fabulous views of the city. Easy access to the cable car and nice walk at the top. You can also visit the castle, you need to walk down the steps from cable car quite a bit before climbing again to the castle but worth it for the views.

Good activity to do in Batumi, cable car was clean and view from the Mountain was awesome. There is a cafe and gift shop on the top. Long queues during our time on the way back.
