Tour in general was good
We enjoyed the tour very much, the only thing was that we felt towards the end specially that we are running against time and that the tour needs to end as soinas possibel. Of course we understand that there is a time limit, but this is our time here - it would have been nice to enjoy it without the time pressure. It was never actaully said we meed to hurry but we felt that we should.

for Giga’s tour (Canyons & Cave Tour from Kutaisi)
It was very beautiful and nice tour. Unfortunatelly Okatsa Canyon was closed, so they changed it to Martvili monastery. Our driver was Ika, he was very kind and told us stories about Georgia.
Highly recommended to have this tour if you come to Kutaisi.

for Giga’s tour (Canyons & Cave Tour from Kutaisi)
We really enjoyed the canyons & cave tour! If you stay longer in Kutaisi it's really worthwhile. Our driver was really nice and drove safely, and we also had an english guide, who answered all our questions. We also liked the fact that we didn't stop to eat at a touristy place, but that they took us to a local fastfood, where the food was great.
Excellent tour- excellent guides
for Giga’s tour (Canyons & Cave Tour from Kutaisi)
Wonderful tour that was jam-packed with activities and brilliantly organised by Giga and Irakli.

You get to see 2 Canyons and 2 Caves which are all worthwhile in their own right. The guides are relaxed and give you options and freedom of choice to spend as much time as you want in each venue

Brilliant
