Description

Sighnaghi – City of Love. It is the prettiest town in Kaheti. Sighnagi orginally was developed in the 18th century by King Erekle II. The defensive walles and 28 towers were built by him against Lezgian invasion. The city has wonderful views over the Alazani valley to the Caucasus beyond. You can taste traditional candy, with grape juice – Churchkhela and Pelamushi.

The Monastery of St. Nino in Bodbe - Originally was built in the 9th Century. It is one of the major pilgrimage sites in Georgia. Monastery holds the tomb of ST. Nino, the Cappadocian maiden who converted Georgian people to Christianity as early as 337 AD. It has a breathtaking view of the Alazani valley and snowcapped Caucasus mountains.

Wine Tasting - Georgia is sometimes referred to as “the cradle of winemaking.” And it is not a coincidence: this delightful radiant country is the oldest cultural center of viticulture, and this is evidenced by various archaeological discoveries. The history of winemaking in Georgia, according to some archaeologists, is about 8000 years old.

Amazing trip, amazing guide!
We spent 4 days in a row with Beka (me and my girlfriend). He showed us around the most famous places in Georgia. All within a few hours by car from Tbilisi. Beka is a passionate guide, very devoted to his work. He is polite, funny and full of energy. In every place, he fed us with historical curiosities and led us to good restaurants. He made a lot of extra stops only because we ask him to do so. He was very curious about our life and we quickly got to like him. Travelling with him is pure pleasure. I don't know how he could stand such distances of driving day after day. But he did it for us. He always picked us up from the place where we stayed. At the end of our journey, he also offered to take us to the airport. We had a flight in the middle of the night so he saved us back then. He didn't even want payment for it. I recommend Beka to anyone who wants to travel in Georgia and experience something more native. I encourage you even to spend a few days in a row with Beka and discover as many fantastic places in a nice company as you can.
Great Georgian Wine Tour
Beka (our guide from Tbilisi) contacted us before the tour commenced and agreed to collect us from our hotel. He arrived right on time which was a pleasant surprise. We drove in his car from Tbilisi to Kakheti, and stopped at KTW wine factory for a tour of the factory ad wine tasting. It was very interesting and the tastings were excellent and at no extra cost. We then drove to Bodbe Monastery for a look around. Beka explained all to us and was very knowledgeable. We then had lunch I a local restaurant (of our choice) where Beka did the order suggestions and placed the order for us. Really excellent lunch at reasonable prices. I asked Beka if we could drive back through Telavi - another famous wine tow, and although this was about 100km longer, Beka was happy to do it. We then gave him some additional cash for his generosity. Our tour was to take 7 hours but ended up at more than 9.5 hours. Really a fun day and worthwhile. Highly recommended.

Beka was very friendly, fun and shared a lot of stories around the places we visited. He's very flexible on time we spend in places, it makes it a nice day out without pressure trying to get to the different locations.
He's very easy going and passionate about what he does.
I really recommend his services!

A-MA-ZING
for Beka’s tour (Night Tbilisi Walking Tour)
Beka is the best tour guide in Georgia. Period. I spent 3 days with him exploring the entire country and it was an unforgettable experience to say the least. He has become a great friend now and I hope to see him in the Netherlands one day to return him the favor. If you come to Georgia and you're looking for a great guide to show you around, don't look further. You'll have a blast.
