Hello, I’m Maria, a private travel guide in Georgia. Tbilisi became my home 4 years ago and ever since then I’ve been exploring every corner of the country, taking the craziest routes and making unforgettable memories.

I became a guide not because I had to, but because I really wanted to share my passion for Georgia with visitors. It’s still my dream job! Travelling has taught me that we’re all different, and that’s why I create tailor-made tours for each of my guests.

I love showing visitors another side of Tbilisi, the one that you won’t find in the guidebooks. For example, I know the city’s socialist architecture well, from grand buildings and monuments to abandoned cable car stations, and am always finding beauty in decay.

I also love introducing people to the food scene beyond the fancy restaurants: typical diners where office workers eat, a small fast food spot that all local kids love, and an old restaurant that’s still popular today.

Description

This private tour is a perfect combination of Kakheti’s most scenic spots.

You’ll see the toy-like town of Signagi, with its red roofs, tiny streets, and marvellous view over the Alazani Valley. Here we will also have a small wine tasting of natural Georgian wines made by the ancient Qvevri technology.

You’ll also visit the ancient Bodbe Monastery, which is lovingly taken care of by the nuns and is a strong contrast with its rose bushes and white churches to the monks led Gareji monastery.

The final stop is the unique David Gareja cave monastery on the Georgian-Azerbaijani border. It has a special spiritual atmosphere and is surrounded by a beautiful deserted landscape.

Lovely day trip
I want to take Maria with me on all my travels! She is so knowledgeable, friendly, easy-going, smart and funny. This trip gives you a completely different side of the country away from the mountains and into the countryside. A must-see for sure.
Beautiful Scenery
I had a great day trip with Maria and it didn't feel like we were on a tour but more of exploring as I get local insights from her. Signagi is definitely beautiful and I'm glad to have gone to experience wine tasting here. I highly recommend booking a tour with her.
