    Escape the crowds and visit the oldest city of Georgia, Mtskheta, which used to be the capital in the early Georgian Kingdom of Iberia from the 3rd-century BC to the 5th-century BC. Enjoy panoramic aerial views of the mountains around the Jvari Monastery, which was Georgian Orthodox in the 6th-century. The name translates as the Monastery of the Cross. It represents the peak of architectural typology as a true masterpiece of the early Medi period. It overlooks the confluence of the Aragvi and Mtkvari rivers from the top of the hill.  Journey back to the early centuries at the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral and Samtavro Church. Svetitskhoveli Cathedral was built in the 11th-century but the site itself is even older, dating back to the early 4th-century.

incredable emoution,impressions,mountains, thank you,Georgia!

I want to thank you so much for such a tour, incredible impressions, such beauty of nature, incredible mountains, air. First of all, a first-class guide, a true professional, like no one who loves his country, told us about the history of Georgia since the beginning of the centuries, showed the most beautiful places. the whole day passed unnoticed, leaving only warm memories and an incredible love for the mountains. I will definitely come back again, because I was invited in the fall to harvest the grapes, and I will definitely take the tour again to the mountains, I am sure it will be unforgettable!

Great program, very skilled guide!

The guide and setup were top notch, but the driver was a bit harsh on the accelerator. This was especially true on the way home from the trip, when he lay behind a bus and tried to squeeze past. We experienced this as risky. The car was not one of the fastest either. On such a wonderful and expensive trip, one should not have to worry about whether a serious accident will happen.
