Full description

Meet your guide either at your hotel or a central location that is convenient for you and embark on your walking tour. Head to the Ministry of Roads Building, which is a unique monument of Brutalist architecture.

Then visit Georgian Stonehenge, a monumental building on the shores of the Tbilisi Sea. The Tbilisi twin towers were built in the last century. What is their uniqueness? They are connected by bridges to each other so of course, take a walk along with them at a height of 70 meters above the ground. Then visit the so-called suicide bridge. The bridge is located above the river Vera and City Hall tries to decorate it but the story does not change. Next, explore the Museum of Archeology, which is now an abandoned building.

The tour was about five hours long and was half driving, half walking. We were driven from one sight to the next and got out each time, got an explanation and had enough time to take pictures and explore. Our favorite sight was the “stonehenge” on top of a hill. It is an incredibly photogenic sight, and hardly any people are there. Super cool! The tour really gives you a good look at the real life in Tbilisi, away from the tourist hot spots. Very educational and interesting for people who are interested in soviet architecture and getting off the besten path. Our guides were Alex and Alexiv, both very nice guys who were polite, patient and spoke english very well.

Die Tour ist absolut empfehlenswert. Es ging mit einem klimatisierten Auto zu einer sehr guten Auswahl an brutalistischen (Sowjet-)bauten in Tbilisi. Interaktiv haben wir die Orte erkundet und wirklich interessante Infos erhalten. Sowohl unser Guide als auch der Fahrer waren kompetent und freundlich. Es gab stets Zeit, um individuelle Fragen zu beantworten und aufregende Fotos zu knipsen. TOP TOUR!

Alex and Alexo picked us up from our hotel and took us to many fascinating 'off the beaten track' places. They were very knowledgeable and we learned plenty during the tour.
