We very much enjoyed our trip and has a great time with our Guide Mana. He nailed the balance of letting us do our thing whilst also being helpful and informative. He had excellent English and we were easily able to enjoy his company and have interesting conversations. Key things to know: Lunch is not a thing. If you’d like to eat during the 9-11 hour tour, bring a pack up! Currently there is a need to use a 4x4 at your cost to get up the last bit - we were aware, so didn’t mind. But it was an extra 100GEL so may need to be factored in. Ladies seem to need skirts/wraps when entering monasteries and donations and toilet costs are common - so take some small change…Still well worth the money though :0)

The tour is incredibly beautiful and includes the main must-see spots in the area. In addition, we made a stop at the highest point of the path with nice monks. The time is set quite appropriately. We had only picked up something to eat once and were on our way briskly. For this we took more time in one place or another. The Trinity Church and the area in particular are amazing. If you have more time in Georgia, definitely stay longer there! It is always worth taking a look out of the window while driving. I was alone with my guide Georgi. His English was good, he explained a lot to me, took great pictures and we had a wide variety of topics to talk about. I wouldn’t do the tour alone because it’s very expensive. It's worth it in a small group. Unfortunately not everything is included in the price - way to the Trinity Church.
