Full description
Start your tour with a convenient, pick-up service from your accommodation in Tbsili. After a short meet and greet with your guide, you will set off to the Old Town, where your tour will commence. Commence the adventure with a 3-hour stroll through this wonderful part of the city. Marvel at the architecture in the city’s historic district, a beautiful mixture of Georgian, Byzantine, Oriental and Neo-Classical European styles. Continue on to visit the Greek Orthodox Anchiskhati Basilica (VI century AD), 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 classical Freedom Square.

Travelers will visit one of Tbilisi’s newest attractions, the Bridge of Peace, which opened in 2010 over the River Mtkvari (also known as the Kura River). You will also have enough time to explore the nearby Synagogue, Armenian Church and Mosque, in addition to the Georgian Orthodox churches so fundamental to Georgian culture. End your Tbilisi walking tour by visiting the Oriental style sulfur baths quarter of Abanotubani to see the most famous bath, Chreli Abano. 

Continue in the afternoon to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Mtskheta, the capital of Georgia (formerly Iberia) from the 3rd-Century BC until the 5th-Century AD. Located about 12-miles (20-kilometres) northwest of Tbilisi at the confluence of the Rivers Mtkvari and Aragvi, Mtskheta remains the center of the Georgian Orthodox and Apostolic Church, a perfect place for sightseeing. Shortly after this, you will then be transferred back to Tbilisi for your hotel drop-off.
