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.

Thoroughly informative. Delightful tour. Five stars
Lovely day trip
I want to take Maria with me on all my travels! She is so knowledgeable, friendly, easy-going, smart and funny. This trip gives you a completely different side of the country away from the mountains and into the countryside. A must-see for sure.
Excellent trip and hike
A glorious daytrip into the Kazbegi mountain region with Maria and her excellent driver. The day is long but doesn't feel exhausting as the scenery is exquisite. Lunch at Rooms hotel is followed by an easy hike to a waterfall, with Maria sharing her vast knowledge of the region. A must-do!
Fantastic tour
This is a great way to introduce yourself to the city and Maria is hands down the best tour guide you could ever ask for. So incredibly knowledgeable about everything from cheese to trees, smart, funny, perfect English and very focused on making the tour suit you. She opens up the Old Town in a way you will never be able to do yourself. Excellent value for money as well.
Very kind tour guide
We had a very pleasant tour, guided by Maria. She spoke proper English and knew a lot about the city. She took us to a small stall where we could buy spices. She showed us the city in a way we couldn't do it ourselves. We ate some local bread and drank local made wine. It was a nice day. Thanks a lot Maria!
