The first stop of the day will be in Surami, where you will have the opportunity to taste a famous freshly-baked Nazuqi (sweet bread baked in an oven), which is a morning must-have for local Georgians. Continue on the tour to the Martvili district, one of the most gorgeous places in Georgia, combining different unique natural environments. You will be shocked with brilliant scenery, sensational waterfalls, and a boat trip in the river which possesses a deep-green color. You can board a boat with a boatman and he will take you on an unforgettable journey between the high rocks in the canyon. You will also have the chance to have lunch (by request) and try out traditional Georgian dishes. Get your camera ready for Kumistavi (Prometheus Cave), which is the biggest cave in Georgia. There are spectacular views of stalactites, stalagmites, petrified waterfalls, underground rivers, and lakes throughout this vast and impressive cave. Within the cave, there are colorful lights ranging from orange, red, pink, and blue. You have two options to enjoy your impressive cave tour. You may choose a walking tour along the 1,600-meter route, or can rather opt for a boat ride along the underground river.

There were two guides - Russian speaking and English speaking, Alexander is a wonderful storyteller and historian who told us many historical events that do not even relate to the excursion itself. We visited two very beautiful places, it was worth it to go long enough there and back. Of the minuses: Due to the long road, the guides always urged and asked to speed up, which did not give a special opportunity to enjoy all the places in full. Also, at stops along the way, they gave very little time, almost choosing between a smoke and a toilet. Boating was under threat due to weather conditions. And until the last moment, the guides said that there would be no rafting, but in the end the rain stopped and we were still able to see these beauties. But despite the minuses, we really enjoyed the places we visited!

One of the most naturally beautiful places I've ever visited. Martvili Canyon housed a ravine gorge that spread as far as the eye can see. Gorgeous views via the boat of the canyon. It should not be missed. The prometheus cave with its mystical vibes fascinated me beyond my imagination. The light show In the cave was exceptional. Our guide, Kat, have the most historical recollection of events that occurred in Georgia and I strongly recommend to request her as your guide if you are as interested in history as me!

It was an absolute pleasure to see this place . Thanks to our guide Gary who was equally amazing. His approach and knowledge has been the main asset for the tour . Do not miss this place for sure in your Georgia itenary.

Long drive but definitely worth the experience. Also thank you for a great staff!

Fantastic trip. The caves were amazingly long and with large rooms.
