Full description
Meet your guide in front of Avlabari metro station at 8:30 AM and head off for Bakuriani ski resort, one of the best resorts in Georgia. The first stop is Bakuriani, where you will hop aboard the Kukushka, a special, mini train which navigates this lovely place. There are two trains and each of them includes two wagons, each with a carrying capacity of up to 23 people. Today, Borjomi-Bakuriani railway and the legendary "Kukushka" are on Georgia's cultural heritage list. The whole train journey is fantastic and peaceful. Bakuriani ski resort is situated 1,700 meters above sea level on the northern slope of Trialeti Range, at the foot of the breathtaking Caucasus Mountains. For skiers and snowboarders, there are 29 kilometers of slopes available and 15 lifts. The winter sports area is situated between the elevations of 1,740 and 2,702 meter. Due to the long winters of 4-5 months, the resort is a paradise for skiers and snowboarders. It is also a superb venue for children to engage in winter sports and activities. The modern developed ski area, Didveli (1,861 meters), and the oldest ski area, Kokhta (2,155 meters), are the beauties of Bakuriani. Different ski routes cater to all levels of skiers and ensures maximum pleasure. Also, there are lots of hotels, hostels, family guest houses, restaurants, and cafes serving up healthy, local food. Bakuriani is the perfect place to have an unforgettable time with family and friends. The resort is an ideal destination not only for recreational purposes but also for sport and nature lovers. Depart Bakuriani at 4:30 PM for the last stop at Borjomi Park, internationally known for its spring mineral water. Take a walk in Borjomi Central Park, taste Borjomi mineral water, and enjoy the beautiful natural scenery. Return to Tbilisi at 9:00 PM.

Excellent tour guides. Very professional, they got in touch with me immediately after the booking was confirmed, we were welcomed properly by the team at the meeting point. We felt accommodated and taken cared properly especially during our first and second day in Tiblisi. There were no room for any anxiety.

Beautiful views and beautiful people! This is my 2nd tour with Garmajoba and they've out done themselves again. My guide Giuna was knowledgeable, friendly and great company (with great taste in music). Given that the Kushka train is closed due to covid, I was a bit worried at first about if I would still enjoy the tour - but I still booked anyway and boy, am I glad I did! The tour itself was very unique with one of the many highlights being a brandy snowcone made with fresh snow by Rani (after a short off road adventure in a UTV mini-jeep). I joined the tour alone and left feeling like I made good friends. I've consistently had great experiences with this company - and this particular tour? I highly recommend it.

We were lucky to get the private tour as we were the only ones to book it for that day. The tour was long, but very interesting. The Borjomi place was beautiful as well as the road to it. Kukushka train ride was nice, there were lots of beautiful views and trees covered with snow. Baturiani ski resort was good for beginners, but it was not enough time to enjoy ski activities. We tried snowmobile (we had around 1h-1h 30 min for any ski activities). The cable car was not working because of weather so we didn’t try it. Overall it is was a great day and I can recommend this tour.
