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. Snap photos of the mountains meeting the sea, featuring modern buildings and quaint neighborhoods in between. You can also grab a drink at the center before heading down.

  • It was a nice experience.You really go up high and see the beautiful Batumi . When you reach the end you can go down and enjoy some drinks in the cafe or eat ice cream.

  • Do recommended to try it the perfect weather and take your drinks by yourself. You are allowed to take on four passengers together, drink and eat is allowed during climbing. The speed is so slow so you could have a good vision of the city, I suggest take your warm clothes by yourself it might be colder than sea level and windy also.
  • If you've never been on a cable car then it's a must. If you have, then you know what's just as important as the cable car ride is what's on the other end of it. (don't get me wrong, still a very gorgeous ride up that takes about 10 minutes.) This place is succhhhh a disappointment though. Once you get to the top there is absolutely nothing but a cafe. And In someones bright idea when building this cafe is in a way the blocks the entire view of the city and black sea. It was crazy for us to see considering you pay 30gel each person to go up just to have a blocked view if you want to relax at the cafe. THE ONLY WAY TO DO IT RIGHT. Go at 8pm or a littler after, when the sun is lower. Bring a blanket and some food, drinks, music and good company. And hang out downstairs from the cafe in the lawn (which doesn't have an blocked view) and have your own picnic and watch the sun set. This place closes at 11pm so you'll have a lot of time.
