Very informative and full of history. ALexi my guide is very very knowledgeable of the history of Khakheti. He is very patient and spontaneous in his explanations. The experience from the start to the end was never boring. the programme of the tour ended beautifully in Khareba. From there I learned not only about Georgian wine but also their sweets and traditional bread. I suppose now i understand wine better in the Georgian way. I will never forget this trip. Was all worth it. How the guide showcased the historical sights of Khakheti made the trip so much fun plus yhe comfort accorded to me during the entire journey. what else can i say but big thanks to the friendly.ge team.

The trip was very interesting and educative. Our guide and driver Guram was great, he shows as many interesting sites and also explain a lot about Georgian history. It was a nice trip and I recommend it.
