Although it was a rainy day, we enjoyed our tour with Aleksi...we had some great food, great conversation and a very smooth drive...he provided us with plenty of historic details and stories of all the places we visited and even told us about the Cathedral near our hotel which we had missed to visit earlier...totally recommend the tour!!

A great tour! Kakheti is a picturesque region with splendid nature and authentic wines. I must also mention the tour organizers’ proper management, accurate timing and individual approach. Highly recommended!

Aleksi was an excellent guide who gave us a lot of information on this tour.
