A fantastic tour; that I highly recommend. We really enjoyed this tour thanks to Khatuna’s friendliness, kindness, flexibility and excellent knowledge of the city’s Soviet architecture, its associated history and culture. This is a great tour to get a glimpse into the past and present of Tbilisi, with access not only to the stunning architecture but also to the people living and working in them. The team has a real desire to show you everything there is to see and learn about Tbilisi and Georgia; great passion for what they do. Thanks for putting together this tour.

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.

My guide was really pleasant and I have enjoyed the tour so much. I recommend it to everyone who love. architechture, brutalism and social modernism.
