Hello, I’m Maria, a private travel guide in Georgia. Tbilisi became my home 6 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.

Amazing Day!
It’s certainly a long and tiring trip, but very memorable and we highly recommend that you take this tour with Maria.
We have been on many tours, but with Maria as our guide, this was the best of them. We only wish we had taken all our tours with her as her knowledge is unparalleled.
She is an awesome guide. Warm, kind, patient and friendly. Above all, she is extremely knowledgeable and you will finish your day feeling like you know so much about Georgia and it’s history.
A tour with Maria is an absolute must!
Great day spent in Old Town!
Maria is very knowledgeable about the history and sights of Old Town! Also very patient. Our large group of thirteen with six adults and seven children all had a wonderful time. Her recommendations for food and extra activities were spot on! Thanks!
A Great day with great company
I want to thank our wonderful guide Levan and safe driver Datho, they made our day memorable and outsandingly fun. We wanted to make some changes on the program itenary due to bad weather, and it was not a problem to Maria who organized the day. Thank you Maria 🙏
I’m half Georgian and had been there before, but Levan and Datho showed us new places I had never stopped at on the way. This here, is the reason to invest to good local guides and skilled drives, you get to see places and know things about places you would have not seen without them.
Thank you all, we had a great day, I recommed this trip to everyone strongly 🙏😊
