We had a really good time, the tour was organized very well and the driver was super professional, he took us to all the places we wanted to go and we could spend as much time as we wanted. It was a very good and comfortable and homely experience, I totally recommend.

Our guides were great, very knowledgeable of the area and history, and the wine was great for sure! Would recommend this for anyone looking to sample some different types of Georgian wine and get some history behind it.
