Мы действительно ничего не знали о Грузии, но этот тур нас просветил. Было здорово увидеть достопримечательности и услышать некоторые факты прямо от нашего местного гида, который был очень хорошо осведомлен об этом районе и был очень любезен. Он даже рекомендовал ресторан, где у нас был очень вкусный обед! Мы полностью рекомендуем!

Экскурсия замечательная ничего лишнего, побывали в монастыре Джвари,поднялись еще выше в горы к другому монастырю. Гид все рассказывает,воспитанный, ппиятеый в общении человек. Интересно и не скучно. Рекомендую!

The trip was wonderful, well-organized and professional. The place was amazing, relaxing and exciting! The market around the biggest church is worth walking in and see the variety of products sold there, as well as souvenirs and local snacks. This tour is a must, you experience many things in one day. But wouldn't be that great without a very friendly, helpful, polite and a professional tour guide we had!
