It was really a great experience and I enjoyed the trip to the maximum. The tour guid Metro and David was super kind, experienced and had great knowledge about the region and history. It was really a memorable day and I would definitely recommend this trip again  

Due to strong fires in Borjomi the host replaced the tour with travel to Kazbegi. the travel was comfortable, the guide was wonderful, well-educated, friendly. the travel was very well organized. the guide was helping and directing everywhere.

amazing tour, the guide (his name is Metro) gave us a lot of info and answered all our questions. I only have a limited amount of time in Georgia and with a tour like that you can get the best out of it! highly recommended!

Borjomi was okay nothing to sensational but Vardzia on the other hand was amazing! Worth it 100% Our guide was Nino or Oki and she was great! Very friendly and well prepared

Excellent tour to Vardzia. Shuti our guide was very knowledge and full of enthusiasm for Georgia. It's a long trip, but the stops on route break up the journey
