Fantastic tour and guide. The check-in was well organized, Borjomi park was stunning and 30 minutes was enough to enjoy it. Then, we stopped for lunch and I couldn't have asked for a better break. Stunning restaurant with views and delicious food. Then we went to Vardzia and it was fun and interesting. Our guide Metro knew pretty much everything about Georgia's history and culture. Highly highly recommended
