What a wonderful trip! I chose the Kazbegi and Truso Valley trip and I enjoyed it a lot even though I went last year but I learned a lot of information about each place we visited and Truso Valley was totally new to me which made the trip more interesting. Our lovely tour guide Khatuna was really kind, knowledge, and so much fun. I was lucky to be in a nice small group too.

A great tour indeed, excellent choice for young and active travelers. Beautiful places, Instagram locations, delicious food - all you can dream about! Also would like to say special thanks to the guides, they make the tour really fun! Ekaterina, you rock!
