Despite the slightly wet and windy weather we had a fantastic day with our guide (Khatuna). She was extremely friendly and attentive and totally knowledgeable on all aspects of our trip, we were made to feel very comfortable and we would happily recommend this trip for anyone who aims to learn a little more about Georgian history and religion. Thank you very much!

Absolutely loved this tour! Such an amazing way to learn about Georgia's history and culture on a short span of time. Thank you to our tour guide Alex and driver Meisha who were the best guides ever! Alex recommended a bunch of good things to do and they even called restaurants to make our reservations for us. So helpful!
