Very beautiful & picturesque places on this tour. We went in August and the weather was quite pleasant! But, I must say, the experience is made better by the amazing tour guide Alex - he is very knowledgeable, kind & patient (he is an excellent photographer as well and must have taken over 50 pictures for us) Would definitely recommend this tour if you’re visiting Georgia!

Unfortunately, the rains prevented us from appreciating all the beauty of nature during the trip, but the organization was at the level, the guide immediately changed the plan and took us to see another monastery.

Aleksi is a super host. I never had such a great experience earlier. He has real knowledge & background of Georgian history. Super highly recommended You won't find better than Aleksi
