What people are saying about Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti

We had a great day, beyond expectations. The canyon and the cave are a must tour. "Ungo" our guide has a great personality, a young enthusiastic person that engages in very interesting conversations, and give the core of the culture. She elevated the trip to another level of fun, and awesome talks. For more than 12 hours we were completely entertained. "Razi" the driver is a very nice person. The office was very professional, friendly and on time with everything. Highly recommended!

I commend our guide Shoti from Gamarjoba Travel and Tours. He exceeded our expectations by sharing a lot of information about georgia while on our way to Martvili region. He also went extra mile by going with us inside the cave and guided us through the martvili canyon. He suggested us the best try foods in the region which makes the whole experience complete! Amazing services! It’s worth the penny paid for. I highly recommend this travel and tours to everyone.

Well-organized tour! The tourist spots are highly recommended for those who want to explore more of Georgia's natural wonders. Our tour guide, Givi, was knowledgeable of the details of the locations and he kept the 8-hour travel (back and forth) fun and interesting. He had lots of amazing facts about the tour, Georgia's history and culture, and of course, the destinations. Happy to recommend this tour and Givi as tour guide to all visiting Georgia!

The scenery in both the cave and the canyon are breathtaking. The boat rides in both locations are definitely the highlights. The ride is long and could be tiring but definitely worth it. A better planning for my trip would make it better as you have the option to stay at Kutaisi which will bring you closer to Batumi. Highly recommended!

Due to weather, boating trips were cancelled for the safety of everyone which i highly appreciate. We enjoyed the places under the rain, amazed with how Georgians protected the caves and the trees. This trip is ideal for travellers who want to enjoy the beauty of the nature! We recommend David to be your guide, one of the best!
