What people are saying about Stepantsminda

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

What a great tour! We had George as our driver and guide and really enjoyed the day with him. He is a very good driver, knows a ton of stuff and has a very calm personality. He was very patient and pleasant to talk to. Kazbegi itself was stunning and well worth the long drive. The highlight of our trip. .
