Head north from Tbilisi along the Georgian Military Highway, the only road connecting Georgia to Russia through the high Caucasus Mountains. First you'll visit Zhinvali Dam, a hydroelectric dam on the Aragvi River.

Inside the monument is a large tile mural that spans the whole circumference of the structure and depicts scenes from Georgian history. Finally, you'll visit Gergeti Trinity Church. The church is located under Mount Kazbek, and served as a popular waypoint for travellers on the road connecting Russia and Georgia. At the end of the day, return to Tbilisi.

The tour included incredible natural beauty sights. Kazbeghi is really breathtaking and totally worth-visiting but the minibus used for the tour was not comfortable at all. 20 tourists were crammed in and if you are taller than 1.70 cm, you'd better know how to fold yourself. Also, I didn't see any need of constantly repeating everything in English and Russian. The tour was supposed to be in English, if someone does not speak it, well, there are tours in Russian, right?

Guide was amazing attentive to everyone, funny and providing good information! The bus is too small and not confortable at all to stay hours inside, could have more space for the legs. The trip is nice and you can know a lot if places in 1 day. The food at the restaurant was great also! The trip on the road is an adventure by itself with cattle and trucks on the road..

An excellent trip with a super guide Omar and a professional driver: knowledgeable and helpful people with whom the beauty of Georgia is even more beautiful and interesting❤️ Thank you very much for the tour, the whole family is delighted)) We will definitely try other tours
