It was built by the greatest Georgian King David The Builder. Then we move to Motsameta monastery that is related to the story of tortured brother lords David and Constantine Mkheidze.

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.

Super adventure
Giga, Maria and David are super nice. Giga had a wedding party whole weekend, and he arranged a friend (Maria) to guide us. David is a very relaxed driver, felt very safe.

All of them are a lot of fun, and the surrounding and tour are very nice, I expect that a lot of tours do about the same stops.
Also really nice people to talk to and get to knoe Georgia better.

We were with a group of 4 guys. Tbilisi and this tour highly recommended!
Confusion turned into Awesomeness!
Since the day i booked for this tour, i wasn't really sure how good it will be. I was confused. The day finally arrived!

Got picked up in the morning and it was pure bliss from that moment! These guys took care of us! Pampered us! Was there when we needed them. This trip was so good and i booked another tour with them.

Giga, my man! Your team is the one and only reason that convinced me to visit Georgia again in the future and i will.

And also hope to meet you next time atleast! ;)
Great, worth it
for Giga’s tour (Canyons & Cave Tour from Kutaisi)
For the concerns, the guide is an organizer. The driver will look after you but it will be enough for touring the sites. You can have your own driver for your tour (even with the harsh driving/Gergian style). You need to pay enterance fee about 100 GEL per person in CASH. (4~5 sites at total) BUT STILL IT TOTALLY WORTH TO PAY IT. GREAT and BEAUTIFUL NATURE WAITS YOU. Thanks for the great tour.
Mountains called me and I'm happy I was there
Wonderful tour with a wonderful guide. Kazbegi is a must see in Georgia. Giga was very friendly and always told great stories and the history of the places we've been to. I would totally reccommend this trip and especially Giga as a guide. Want to note separately the driver who gifted us with his homemade wine. Looking forward to being back to Georgia and continuing exploring it with Giga and Dato.
