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.

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