Amazing Private Tour (5 stars for sure)!

The itinerary was well planned. The guide definitely knows his way around making sure that I got see the best spots. The lunch was a pleasant surprise traditional Georgian homemade food in a lovely restaurant. The wine tasting was awesome in a small cozy winery. The experience as a whole was amazing.

The driver and driver were thoughtful, competent, considerate, well structured. However, the ruins shown on the advertising image of Mtcheta were not shown. There was, however, a wine tasting included, which was superfluous for me because it did not fit and I do not drink wine in the afternoon.

Enjoyable half day tour

Well organised and well timed tour with a good English speaking guide. Only suggestion would be to spend 10 minutes longer at Mtskheta and 10 minutes less at the church with the nunnery.

Very nice tour informative you get to see the holy places and fast tour thank you

Was good experience. Short trip from Tbilisi. Nice transportation
