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.

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.
Pre season trip from Kutaisi
We booked a day trip from Kutaisi to the canyons and the Prometheus cave. It was early March so we were the only guests and the guide told us interesting historical background stories that made us more knowledgeable about Georgian history, trust me there is plenty of it. The lunch stop at the family restaurant was also delicious and of course we couldn't finish everything. Unfortunately the boats were not operating this time of the year, so plan ahead if you are keen to do that.
Great tour
Pleasant trip and guide!
We were with the 3 of us and the guide. The weather was wet so some things were closed. Still out guide offered us other options to go to. She drove us to the caves and canyons through areas that was so beautiful and different we hadn't seen before yet on our trip. Thank you for your guidance! :-)
