Full description
Even if you only have a short time in Tbilisi, you have to spend at least a half-day exploring the Old Town. The architecture in the city’s historic district is a mixture of Georgian, Byzantine, Oriental, and Neo-Classical European styles. Among the sites you will visit are the Orthodox Anchiskhati Basilica, the city’s oldest church. You will also see the 13th-century churches of Sioni and Metekhi, the magnificent Narikala Fortress, perched on a hill with superb views of the city below, and the classic Freedom Square. You will then continue to one of Tbilisi’s newest attractions, the Bridge of Peace, which opened in 2010 over the River Mtkvari (also known as the Kura River). Tbilisi’s compact size means you can easily explore the nearby Synagogue, Armenian Church and Mosque, in addition to the Georgian Orthodox churches so fundamental to Georgian culture. This peaceful co-existence of the various religions helps emphasize modern Georgian tolerance.

Alexei led four colleagues of mine and me on a walk through the streets and of Tbilisi. His tour was education at its best - seeing, hearing and experiencing a small portion of Tbilisi’s storied history. All of us thoroughly enjoyed Alexei and found him also sensitive to our needs and adapting the tour to meet those. At the end of the tour he helped us find a restaurant that had Georgian traditional singing with some dancing - and that was a treat.

Alexei was my guide and he was probably one of the warmest guides I have met. He adapts the walking tour to what your interests are and gives a lot of great recommendations for things beyond the tour. I would love to see him put together an awesome hiking tour one day!

This was a fun tour and really great for getting to know Georgia and Tbilisi. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We highly recommend this tour and guide (Alex). In just a few hours you get a fantastic tour and lesson on Georgian history and culture. It is well worth the time and money. Also, our guide Alex went way beyond the call, and helped us find a great place to get our COVID test done (needed to meet the requirements). Don't let COVID slow you down, Georgia was a great place to visit, even now, and Georgians like Alex made the visit a great success!
