If you write this experience in great detail, it will probably be like spying a new movie. It would be much better to expect and experience. So ... Nika Kharazza, who came to the hotel on the start of Spor, greeted me lightly and got into the car. There was a friend who drove, and the guide focused on explanation and consideration. In fact, the SIM card I bought the day before was not registered, so I was quite worried about it, and Nika worked very hard to solve it. (I think it's a good idea to solve your SIM card at the airport and start your trip.) Boots from the lakeside stand helped all day. The scenery along the way to the Gethetti Church was just the beginning of admiration. It does not capture the scenery of the most famous place, the Gethetti Church. It is a very beautiful landscape that can only be seen with your eyes. I paraglided at the Gaunari ski resort and I highly recommend it. But it was too cold to prepare. Writing down the feeling of looking down from the sky is

We very much enjoyed our trip and has a great time with our Guide Mana. He nailed the balance of letting us do our thing whilst also being helpful and informative. He had excellent English and we were easily able to enjoy his company and have interesting conversations. Key things to know: Lunch is not a thing. If you’d like to eat during the 9-11 hour tour, bring a pack up! Currently there is a need to use a 4x4 at your cost to get up the last bit - we were aware, so didn’t mind. But it was an extra 100GEL so may need to be factored in. Ladies seem to need skirts/wraps when entering monasteries and donations and toilet costs are common - so take some small change…Still well worth the money though :0)

Awesome and chic journey. Everything was great. Our driver Rezo and guide Maya were very nice and sociable people. Thanks to them, our day was great and we got a lot of positive emotions. The places were impressive and very scenic, this organized chain of places must be done. We were shown Georgia as a very majestic and beautiful country with an interesting history. We were taken to a good restaurant where we enjoyed the atmosphere and cuisine of local life. Everything was really great, we were more than satisfied and highly recommend this Journey !!!
