Full description
Start your tour at 9:00 AM from your hotel or holiday apartment. Head northwards and enjoy stunning views. Stop at the Jinvali water reservoir, a calm lake surrounded by green hills. From there, discover the impressive Ananuri Fort. Explore the remains, walk through the yard and the old tower while your guide tells you the story of this beautiful place. The Georgian Military Highway is full of scenic and interesting spots including a mineral spring, which is believed to have healing powers. Reach Gudauri and the Cross Pass. Take in the views at the Soviet Monument of Friendship, home to one of the most beautiful panorama platforms in Georgia, with stunning panoramas of the mountains and gorges. Next, stop at Kazbegi, the center of the region and home to the famous Gergeti church. Switch to a specially equipped SUV to take you up the rugged road to the church. After Gergeti, go off the beaten track and visit the Daryal Gorge, and the beautiful Archangels Monastery at the Georgian-Russian border. On the way back, stop at a legendary restaurant (on request) known for its khinkali dumplings, a dish that originated in this area or enjoy a khinkali cooking class and learn to make your own dumlplings.

George is the best tour guide I have ever had. He made the entire trip fun and was very accommodating. I highly recommend that you request him if you are going on this trip. George's vehicle is very comfortable as well. Horse back riding add on is a must and gave us some of the best views on this trip

I highly recommend getting this tour as its so helpful having someone explain everything you're seeing. Giorgi was a wonderful tour guide who went above and beyond into making our Kazbegi tour an unforgettable one. He was also someone that is passionate about his job and so its fun talking with him. Get this tour if you want to 1- see the naturistic side of Georgia 2 - be accompanied by a friendly tour guide who will make your day trip an unforgettable one.

Meri was great and very accommodating. She didn’t rush us at all and was willing to take our pictures. Unfortunately, we couldn’t go up to the church because of heavy rains but it was substituted by a drive to the Chronicles of Georgia. This tour is definitely worth it and the drive was absolutely gorgeous!
