Full description
Explore 3 well-known Georgian towns on a private day trip from Tbilisi. Learn the history behind these places while traveling in the comfort of an air-conditioned vehicle. A break for lunch or dinner provides the perfect opportunity to try a typical Georgian meal. The day starts with hotel pickup in Tbilisi. From here, set off for Mtskheta, one of Georgia's oldest cities and former capital. Here, admire the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral, Samtavro Monastery, and old cobbled streets filled with souvenir shops and cafés. A tour of this city would not be complete without a visit to the Jvari Monastery, perched above the city and rivers below. Explore this UNESCO World Heritage site and admire the rural countryside surrounding it. The next stop of the day is in Gori, the birthplace of Joseph Stalin. Wander through a museum dedicated to this former Soviet leader and take time to admire the city streets and monuments named in his honor. At some point during the tour, the guide will provide a break for lunch. Ask your guide to recommend some Georgian favorites and savor them with a glass of local wine. The last stop of the tour will be in Uplistsikhe, an abandoned rock-hewn town a few kilometers away from Gori. One of the oldest urban settlements in Georgia, you'll enjoy exploring the labyrinth of caves and imagining life in the Early Iron Age. The local partner does its best to ensure socially responsible and sustainable tourism. This includes providing an insurance policy for guests and implementing the highest standards possible for its tours, ensuring that your trip to Georgia will be one to be remembered!
