Sensational tour to get to know Georgia very well. Nature is seen throughout the route from 09:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Borjomi is National Park where country life is, Rabati Castle in 1 hour is union of mosques and historical churches. Fabulous! Then we stopped to eat in a very nice restaurant where the guide took the orders of each traveler (Food not included. Logical) We continue to Vardzia, which is a set of caves carved into the mountain where you can go up to see them for 90 minutes. Cows can be seen all along the route, which is very beautiful. We also stopped to see a castle carved into the mountain for 15 minutes. The guide will tell you at all times the phases and history where we are going. It helps you feel comfortable and gives you time to go to the bathroom at the different stops. The driver is very responsible and gives us total safety behind the wheel. At night, we end up seeing the bridge of the Borjomi spa, until we start the return to Tbilisi. They are responsible, frie
