    The Kasbegi trip was the highlight of our Georgian tour with our base at Tbilisi.The Guide and tour were friendly and mindful not to converse in Georgian too often and apologised on one or two occasions.They made it a point to highlight all the landmarks and panoramic sights and a brief history of each.They prioritized the customers comfort and always sought permission before hand including when stopping for lunch.Recommended strongly that wine for which Georgia is famous is purchased from these fair priced shops rather than the wine shops as very often we got far better competitive prices in these supermarkets than in the wineries ( where they often hike prices according to the customers appearance) Strongly recommended is the Paragliding arranged on the way back, it is secure and well conducted by international licensed pilots who familiarize you with all the rules Paragliding. The tour of the Gergeti Trinity church at the top of Mt Kazbegi is a lifetime unforgettable experience.
