Full description

Explore southern Georgia and see the most important monument, Vardzia Cave Complex. Visit the world-renowned Borjomi Resort.

Start your tour at Borjomi Resort, a hydro-thermal health spa resort in the southern region of Samtskhe-Javakheti. Walk in the Borjomi Central Park and taste Borjomi mineral water with unique healing qualities.

After visiting Borjomi Central Park, you head toward Akhaltsikhe, stopping at a local restaurant and having lunch with traditional Georgian dishes.

In the south of the country, not far from the famous cave town of Vardzia, there is a popular attraction, the fortress of Khertvisi. The ancient fortress perfectly matches nature: Surrounded by mighty mountains, the muscular walls look even more powerful.

Follow along the upper Mtkvari River, traversing narrow canyons at Aspindza along a stunning valley with rocky hillsides. Arrive at Vardzia, famed for its paintings and unique architecture. Tour the bell tower, main church, cave dwellings, rooms, chapels, pharmacy, and wine cellars.

Fantastic tour and guide. The check-in was well organized, Borjomi park was stunning and 30 minutes was enough to enjoy it. Then, we stopped for lunch and I couldn't have asked for a better break. Stunning restaurant with views and delicious food. Then we went to Vardzia and it was fun and interesting. Our guide Metro knew pretty much everything about Georgia's history and culture. Highly highly recommended

I have to say the tour was awesome from beginning to end. My friend and i enjoyed it a lot. The tour guide Metro (Gamarjoba Georgia Tours) was really informative and full of energy. This was the first time we are traveling to Georgia and our first time booking with this tour agency and I have no regrets choosing them. Every single one of them which we had contact with from the tour agency was friendly. The places we visited was historical and beautiful. There was a lot of walking but no complains since we were on a holiday and really wanted to see places and learn the history of those places. The group we went with was also really a fun group and additional credit needs to be given to Metro who ensured each of us had fun and made sure the group had interaction with each other. Highly recommend Gamarjoba Georgia Tours if you are visiting Georgia
