What people are saying about Tbilisi

The experience was unforgettable and our tour guide Alex was great. He was knowledgeable and kind. Plus, the drive was long, and he didn't let us feel that not for a second. In addition, this tour is unlike others. First of all, the hike was very nice, you don't feel stuck in a car all the time. Second, some of the stops we made were magical as the places were very old, authentic and not very popular to tourists. We also had lunch in a humble restaurant owned by a family, which was actually nice as it makes you experience the kindness and generosity of the people and their tradition. I highly recommend this tour.

This was a great experience with many breathtaking and picturesque views of Georgia to enjoy as you learn more about the country. We really enjoyed it thanks to the kindness, friendliness and flexibility of our guide Aleksi; his excellent knowledge of Georgian history, culture, cuisine as well as funny local stories. He was also very patient with us, taking time to ensure we get the best experience all along the tour, even helping us with his great photography skills. Thanks to Aleksi and his team for making this a fantastic experience.

It was a wonderful day, I was lucky enough to join the group trip that only has two people, so it feels like a private tour. The weather was beautiful that makes a fun day. Though the lunch was not included in the fee, I really like the restaurant arranged on the way, it’s one of the best I’ve visited in Georgia.

The whole trip went great. Excellent guide, gorgeous views of the mountains, excellent organization of the trip. I advise everyone!

excellent adventure tour combined with Georgian culture and nature
