Our day tour to Bakuriani was definitely the highlight of our weekend to Georgia! The breathtaking winter scenery was made doubly fun with a day of snowfall. We picked an exceedingly snowy day to do this tour! This tour experience was made possible by our guide, Nika, who was just wonderful throughout the entire trip. There were some unexpected hiccups (through no fault of the tour company) but it just made our day more memorable. It was fun learning little history trivia about Georgia while we were on the road with a competent driver on the helm. This is definitely a recommended tour...and probably even worth repeating in the future!

We were lucky to get the private tour as we were the only ones to book it for that day. The tour was long, but very interesting. The Borjomi place was beautiful as well as the road to it. Kukushka train ride was nice, there were lots of beautiful views and trees covered with snow. Baturiani ski resort was good for beginners, but it was not enough time to enjoy ski activities. We tried snowmobile (we had around 1h-1h 30 min for any ski activities). The cable car was not working because of weather so we didn’t try it. Overall it is was a great day and I can recommend this tour.

The morning started out so special with everyone in the tour office singing happy birthday to me and the day just continued to be awesome with our wonderful guide George who went above and beyond to make it a perfect day!!! And the train ride and scenery and lunch and water tasting was really amazing!! I can highly recommend the tour and especially this company! Thank you George for an unforgettable birthday!
