This is the 2nd time I have booked a tour with Gamarjoba and again I had a wonderful time. Both our professional guide Zura and our driver Gia definitely made the experience unforgettable. The trip was not just about the historical and beautiful places we’ve visited but the warmth and hospitality they have shown. I most definitely enjoyed our lunch; dining with strangers is an enjoyable way to connect with people. I definitely felt like I was on a tour with friends during the trip. It was once again another trip to remember!
