Hello Florena! Thanks for checking in. Our Georgian excursion was a perfect fusion of ancient marvels and natural wonders. Mtskheta’s treasures and Vardzia’s mystical caves left everyone spellbound. This dual experience is a must for anyone seeking the essence of Georgia’s rich history and breathtaking landscapes!

It is really hard to describe the emotions that I have experienced in Georgia. It was unforgettable. Bodbe’s atmosphere and stunning views were inspiring, while Telavi’s charming streets and exceptional wines made for a perfect mix of relaxation and adventure.

I am more than sure I will come back to Georgia with the Arara tour and maybe add Armenia next time!
