This tour takes you close to the border with Azerbaijan to see the remarkable David Gareja Cave Monastery. You’ll be blown away by the hundreds of cave structures that have been carved out of the mountainside. This Georgian Orthodox center was founded in the 6th century by one of the 13 Assyrian monks.

After Gareja Monastery we will visit the desert village of Udabno which is home to many ecomigrants. There you will take part in a cooking class to learn how to prepare food from the Svaneti region. You’ll then sit down with a local family to feast on the food you have prepared as well as other local dishes before heading back to Tbilisi.

A great day
We had a great day. A perfect daytrip if you want to see an unique landscape and experience the real Georgia.
No tour to see as much as possible in one day. but a tour where you learn a lot about Georgia, it's people and food. Thank you!

I travelled in Signagi. This tour was Excellent, well organized. Informative and Fun. I have been there a few days ago, One of the most beautiful views in the world from Signagi city. Mari told me what's the difference between Georgian wines. Very friendly and with incredible local knowledge on just about anything we asked her.
Best tours in Georgia
Excellent service from extraordinary people...One of the best experience.
It was more of roaming around with friends in Georgia instead of a guide. We have made some very good friends in Georgia for life. Levan, Mary, Misha & our Beard hulk....thank you for such a beautiful time.
City of love
Mari was excellent she had plenty of knowledge about Georgia and it’s history and gave us an insight into the wine production principles. A special treat was the city of love with excellent organic wine and great views of the town and valley.
