Hello,
My friend and I will visit Georgia mid October for a week - we will spend half based in Kutaisi and the other half in Tbilisi.
We would like to arrange to visit some of the sights outside the Kutaisi such as Katchi pillar and Gelati Monastry. We would also like to visit Vardzia and then travel onto Tbilisi from Vardzia.
Is it easy to use public transport? Or better to hire a car and drive ourselves? Or easier to take a tour - if a tour what are the estimated costs for 2 of us - we are happy to join a group. Should we pre-book or is it easy to find a company to organise this when we arrive?
Thanks, Sophie

Hello, Sophie!

You are arriving to Kutaisi airport?

Unfortunately, I am not that familiar with the sights outside of Kutaisi, but overall it is usually easiest to hire a taxi with a driver to drive you around Kutaisi and nearby... From Tbilisi to Kutaisi it is easiest to travel with a marshrutka though- ticket should be around 10 lari per person and buses depart quite often :)

We are starting a tea plantation near to Kutaisi though, if you are interested in that, I can show your around our plantation and factory... This would be a few-hour tour only though :)

If there is anything else I can help you with, let me know!
