TRIP REVIEWS (2)

Steven Boyd

Me and my friend spent an amazing time in Georgia during our short but adventurous trip. It was fun to see Shatili and its unique architectural styles. In addition to enjoying the breathtaking scenes of the country, we were satisfied with the choice of hotels and guesthouses. Some of the guesthouses were family run, which was exactly what we wanted to experience. One thing I would note is choose wisely when to travel to this area. The weather might let you down. Our guide Tazo and driver Giorgi were friendly and helpful. Giorg helped us with our luggage every time and remained a professional during the heavy city traffic or comprehensive routes. I will recommend your company and using your services.

James and Susan

I travelled with my partner Susan and chose to visit Georgia, which is a great way to get off the beaten path and see a side of Georgia that most tourists never get to experience. During our tour we visited very nice and stunning ancient monasteries; traditional villages were amazing with their landscapes. The hotels were nice and comfortable. We learned so much about Georgian history and culture, and had a lot of fun along the way that next time we decide to explore Georgia with Armenia and Azerbaijan.
