On our last night in Georgia we took a wonderful cooking class with Shorena making the tasty cuisine we experienced over the past 3 weeks: khinkali, khachapuri, mcadi, eggplant pkhali, etc. I love how our guides, Mariam and Beka, helped us pair the different foods together to make even more delicious combinations! We also just enjoyed the conversation and learning more about everyday life in Georgia. Shorena's home was a beautiful setting as we made khinkali surrounded by grape vines and plum trees. It was the best way to end our stay in Georgia and we even brought some leftover khachapuri to heat up the next morning.

A fantastic tour that lives up entirely to the description. It not only ticked all the boxes, but was such a lovely way to meet new people. I have gone to all of these sites before, but wanted to bring my mom along for a second time. Even so, I wasn’t bored and was glad to have a refresher because our guide brought such great insights. The lunch at the local home was a fantastic touch—don’t miss it!

It was easy to meet with the guide. He was easy going, had an excellent English and was super friendly. The trip was well organised, no bad surprises, you get what is said. The price was honest and fair. Even the lunch at the local family was great. It was a long day but totally worth it. Thank you Gio for this amazing day and sharing so much about Georgian people and Georgian history and culture!

The tour was very nice. Our guide was friendly and well prepared with historical information about Georgia and Armenia. We couldn't really ask a question as they where answered in advance. The car was comfortable and safe. Lunch was delicious and more than enough.

Our guide, Giorgi was awesome! He made sure every one is being taken care of. He provided all the information we need.
