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!

Georgian cuisine has more than a few delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes. Do you have an allergy to a certain ingredient? Let us know in advance and we’ll sort it out. Want to take part in the preparation? You're more than welcome!

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…

Like going to a friend's place
This experience is probably the most since and authentic experience we had in Georgia. Great food, but mostly its really about the warm welcome that Mari and Levan gave to us. Highly recommended to those seeking for everyday experience in Tbilisi, and those who seek for great conversations.
Highly recommended!
Levan and Mariam are such a lovely couple! We joined them for cooking and they taught us the secrets to perfect Georgian dishes. The food was exceptional and the company was even better. We had a great evening, learning about life and tradition in Georgia and just enjoying ourselves. A true authentic local experience. Don't miss out!
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!
