This tour had a great variety of activities done at a perfect pace. We were lucky to have such a compatible group of like-minded travellers to spend the day with. It was a great value for the money and we highly recommend this tour to get a feel for Georgian history.

Sophia was a fantastic guide. She was very knowledgeable and engaging. She managed our small group of five very well. We got a good feel for the history of Tbilisi and Georgia. It was a great way to see such a magnificent city laden with a rich history.

I wish I could give more stars, Tamuna was more a friend than a guide. I learned so much about Armenia and had an unforgettable time. There was one other person on the tour and we both decided to book a subsequent tour (Kakheti) in the following days.

It was absolutely breath taking. The tour guide 'Guina' was fun and knowledgeable. The tour was give you a combination of guidance and free time. The tour was not overdrawn out but well organized.
