Brenda Paynting

My daughter and I took the Classical tour to Georgia in 8 days. Georgia was a discovery for us, where we met a combination of old and new cultures. The cities were full of interesting places and fascinating sites that made the trip just beautiful. I wish we had also taken some days to hike in the mountains, as the views and nature were simply amazing. The program ran smoothly, the daily tours and lunch stops were well-organized. One thing I would like to recommend is upgrading to 4* hotels before the trip. Our hotel location was good, but we needed more comfort and an upgrade would have been helpful. The breakfasts were nice but there was not enough variety. Sophie was very knowledgeable and interesting. We are not a fan of dates and numbers, instead prefer local stories, interesting facts on the history and past. She catched this immediately and made our time the most memorable. . Thanks Arara for a beautiful journey.

We recently visited Georgia which was an amazing experience provided by Araratour. The itinerary was well-planned and we got to visit all the major cultural and historical sites in Georgia. We visited ancient churches and monasteries, explored the stunningly beautiful Kazbegi region, and tried delicious Georgian cuisine. Especially we want to highlight our visit to the ancient cave city of Uplistsikhe and the stunningly beautiful Gergeti Trinity Church. The guide was very kind, friendly and informative about Georgian culture and history. Our recommendation is high for this tour to anyone who wants to see the best of Georgia.
