We’re a friendly, outgoing and positive couple with lots of awesome ideas on how to enjoy life fully in one of Europe’s best cities!

We were born and raised in Tbilisi, we studied here, we work here and we live here. We know its bright and dark sides, its pros and cons and its ups and downs throughout history. We consider ourselves to be true locals.

We have lots of friends from abroad and each time they visit we show them the real Georgia, from the Old City, historical sights and nightlife of the capital to the mountains and the seaside, along with our heavenly cuisine.

We’re also freelance travel bloggers and city guides. We offer unforgettable experiences and memories to our future friends.

We hope to see you soon in Tbilisi!

During the dinner you’ll learn more about Georgia, its culture, and its traditions. If you’re interested in participating in the preparation, we’ll teach you how to choose the best ingredients, how to cook them as our grandmothers did, and lots of secrets, tips, and tricks.

Here are some of the possibilities: khachapuri, khinkali, satsivi, pkhali, lobio, mchadi, tkemali, khashlama, gomi, mushrooms with cheese on ketsi, chakapuli, kuchmachi, eggplants with walnuts, gurian Christmas pie, wine, chacha, sweets…

Highly recommended!
We spend our last night in Georgia (our trip took two weeks) with Mariam and Levan and had a great time. Most Georgians are very hospitable, but because of the language barrier, having a more in depth conversation can be difficult. Mariam and Levan speak perfect English, so we really got the chance to discuss our observations and ask them about Georgian food, culture and history. We 'helped' with the cooking (meaning we mostly drank wine and cut some vegetables) so will hopefully be able to try some dishes at home.

Thanks again for a great night!
What a wonderful experience
Mariam and Levan invite you into their home, they cook up the most delicious food for you and even travel to other regions of Georgia to get wine and ChaCha, which the Georgians drink themselves and which you can not buy in the supermarket.
About 5 min after you meet your two hosts, you feel as if you have known them for your entire life.
It was a fantastic and unique experience in Tbilisi and when I come back, I'll book dinner with them again. Yes- it was that nice and it was that good!!!!
What an Amazing Experience
I had a wonderul opportunity to be invited by Marian and Levan for dinner.

We started at 4pm with dinner preparation to which I was able to learn how to make some of my favorite Georgian food - eggplant with walnuts, baje.

Had a delightful conversatiob with Mariam and Levan and I get a chance to drink from the horn.

What an amazing experience!!!
Amazing dinner!
I had some amazing foods prepared by the hosts at their place. They are both very friendly, great cooks, and good storytellers about Georgia and Tbilisi. It is such a unique experience to socialize with the locals and get a much better sense of their story and this great city of Tbilisi. I think it is well worth treating yourself to this tour. The food and wine were delicious!!!!
Interesting experience with locals
Mariam and Levan are a lovely example of a young Georgian generation: they are proud of their country, its history and love to present it to foreigners. Extra benefit is a fresh food prepared in front of you 👍
Thank you Levan and Mariam, kind regards from Slovakia 🙂
