David Gareja Monastery and Sighnaghi Tour

1. David Gareja Monastery and Sighnaghi Tour

In the morning, the guide and driver will pick you up from your accommodation in Tbilisi (if you choose the private option), or alternatively meet the tour group at Europe Square. Then, head to David Gareja complex via Sagarejo village. Turning from the Eastern main road, drive on a dirt road to the semi-desert. The complex was established in the 6th century AD by one of the 13 Assyrian monks and expanded through the centuries. Here, have a tour of the caves and monasteries, and enjoy 2-3 hours easy trekking in the semi-desert. On your way to Signagi, you’ll visit the Bodbe monastery. The monastery is one of the major pilgrimage sites in Georgia, due to its association with St. Nino, the 4th-century female evangelist in Georgia. In Sighnaghi, a small town surrounded by 18th-century defensive wall and remnants of fortifications, take a relaxing walk in the town, explore the defensive wall and fortifications, and enjoy the views of Alazani Valley. In the evening, drive back to your place of stay or Europe Square in Tbilisi.

What people are saying about Sighnaghi

Great trip

Alex and our driver Giorgi are very knowledgable and made the trip very comfortable. Although the part of the monastery with the frescoes was closed due to politic situation we visited other cave monasteries in the area which are not so popular but really magnificent. The restaurant in Sighnahi was really great, the offered also home-made wine tasting and it was really aweasome.

An interesting trip. Unfortunately, knocks do not set boundaries, you can not go to the caves. Only David Gareja monastery, landscapes, "rainbow mountains" remain. Alazani Valley, Bodbe Monastery, Signaghi with its walls and valley perspective - very worth seeing. Additionally, tasting delicious wines and local cuisine complete the experience.

I really enjoyed and had fun on this tour. Alexi was very knowledgeable and really make sure you are comfortable, getting the experience you want and more of the tour. I know more about Georgia, past and present. I highly recommend Friendly Tours and you will not regret it! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
