What people are saying about Kakheti

Great experience. Alex, the tour guide, has an amazing knowledge about the history and Georgian culture and you can tell he is passionate about organizing those trips. The trip was very relaxing, Alex gave us a lot of space to make decisions about where we want to go and what we want to see. The David Gareja destination is one of the kind, off-the beat. If you're looking for a hidden gem in Georgia, this is it! Nobody knows about this place, but locals. Enormous landscape with colorful mountains, you take a hike there away from any civilization and you feel like on another planet. On our way back we stopped by an amazing winery with delicious food.

This is a great way to see parts of Armenia if you’re in Tbilisi. Very organized, punctual and knowledgeable tour. Our guide was Irakli. Very friendly, we had wonderful conversations. He showed us some nice hidden spots. He took us to an amazing Armenian restaurant. Irakli was very knowledgeable, understanding and just a great guide. It felt like a day spent with a friend. I do recommend this tour to see beautiful views, impressive churches and try great food. You’ll be lucky to have Irakli as your guide.
