What people are saying about Stepantsminda

We can absolutely recommend this tour to anyone coming to Tbilisi! Georgi was a great guide and host. The communication upfront was easy and the pickup from our location went super smooth and fast. In Georgi's comfortable car, we drove to the north with many beautiful stops along the way. Georgi's English is perfect and during the ride he told us many interesting facts about Georgia and its history. The stops on the tour are all breathtaking and after you take pictures you might think the background is photoshopped - that's how beautiful it is. We had the Khinkhali lunch option included and didn't regret it as the food at the restaurant that Georgi took us to was delicious. All in all, we would recommend to take this tour on your first days in Tbilisi, as Georgi will also then be able to share his recommendations for places to eat/see in the city as well, which have served us very well for the rest of our trip. Thank you very much Georgi!

Wonderful tour! Great ride out to the Caucasus Mtns in a comfortable SUV. Great panoramic views from ‘Friendship’ monument and Gergeti church. The tour offers additional add-ons like a horseback ride or hike to a waterfall. Great choices, but keep in mind to keep the tour length as advertised, other stops may be omitted. We took the horseback ride - adventurous - but did not do the Archangels monastery. We also selected a khinkali lunch but was not available at Rooms hotel on our visit, but alternate lunch (with wine) was delicious. 1 of our riders opted out of the horseback ride last minute and refund was provided accordingly.

Our driver and tour guide george is highly recommended. Our trip wouldnt be the same if not for george. He was a considerate driver to his passengers knowing that one of us usually uses the restroom so often. He loves his work so much that he knows the history of georgia by heart. This was indeed a memorable trip to us!

I had a phenomenal tour with Irakli. He was an excellent driver, knowledgeable, and funny. He also takes great photos, my favorite was a close-up of khinkali and I’m in the blurry background, slurping it up. Thanks for an unforgettable day!
