What people are saying about Stepantsminda

It was an amazing walk with incredible Sofia! There were three of us in a group + a guide, and I had the feeling that I was walking with friends. The Gveleti waterfall is very beautiful and majestic, and the views from the 5th Season Hotel are simply incredible! To dine, lie on poufs or hammocks overlooking the green mountains is priceless. There we saw cows and horses, and then a group of ducks came right to our table. You should definitely go on this tour in order to fall in love with the mountains not only with your eyes, but also with your feet.

It was the best trip during our vacations in Georgia. We had a nice, small group and a great guide. We have enjoyed beautiful views and trekking. We had enough time to enjoy nature. Our guide did not put any pressure on us. We had a really great time.
