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.

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!
Great tour of Tbilisi
Highly recommend anyone going to Georgia to do the tour with Maria. It's super fun, thorough and informative. Maria goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and a tour with her gets you set to tackle Tbilisi by yourself. She's a great guide and knows the best spots.
Fantastic and knowledgeable guide
Did this tour with 5 friends during our 1 week trip to Georgia. Maria was incredibly knowledgeable about her city. She was very friendly (and also very patient as we were late to meet her) and was the ideal guide for our superb 4 hour tour. Some of my friends were reluctant to do a lengthy walking tour but without exception all agreed this was fantastic and was carried out at an easy pace. Maria took us to a few locations we would not have found and the tour ended with a terrific wine tasting visit to an underground wine cellar. Very highly recommend this tour. Even if this tour were more expensive it would be great value. Thanks Maria!
Old town tour
Thanks to the very helpful and informative Maria. We learned a lot about Georgia’s history, how to properly drink wine and all other additional information. Everything was discussed clearly. Shes good at taking pictures too😊. We highly recommend people to book for Maria. She can answer every question about Georgia.
Exceptional local knowledge
Maria was a great guiding us through a Tbilisi streets. She's very simple down to earth, professional, smart, confident, knowledgeable and responsible true who loves to share and show beauty of Tbilisi. We learnt a lot not only in history of the city, but also how locals lives nowadays in Georgia. Her advice on restaurants and other spots was top notch too. Highly recommended!

BLADE RUNNER MEETS SOVIET UTOPIA - WITH EXTRAS
What an extraordinary window into the mid 20th century, and a (then) futuristic industrial- residential complex that must confirmed in many Soviet citizens the inevitable victory of socialism was just around the corner. The extraordinary 3 dimensional public transport system, linking disconnected suburbs with mine sites, industrial plants, mine sites and the civic centre, in a setting of near-total dilapidation - yet somehow still clinging to some kind of “normal” life, has weirdly science-fictional feeling to it. Standing on one of the ruined hilltop “suburbs”, where even now a few shattered Soviet era flats are still occupied, one can see see the remaining operational cable cars, industrial and public transport, Criss crossing the valley and imagine how advanced the whole setup must have looked back in the early 1950s.
I approached the cable car ride with some trepidation, but it all worked fine. I would not have missed this for anything. Added extras included a very worthwhile visit to what would have been the cultural centre for the city, a performing arts theatre in a rather sophisticated style that linked bauhaus with art moderne. Although it is also worn down to the bone, the theatre continues to host intermittent musical & theatrical performances.
Bookends to the tour, the remarkable cave monastery and the Katskhi pillar, round out a very full, and fulfilling day.
All this is hosted by lively, whip-smart and very knowledgeable Maria, whose energy and passion for Georgia, and perhaps especially this aspect of its past, present and future, make this unusual tour one out of the box.
Don’t miss it,

Memorable tour for a very awesome first trip to Georgia
I had an awesome time on my tour. It was my first time visiting Georgia, and my first time traveling alone so I was not sure what to expect. My tour guide offered really great historical knowledge, local insights, and personalized experience throughout the day. On th drive to David Gareji I was able to experience multiple different terrains in southern Georgia and stop at any point to take photos. When we arrived to the Monastery, I was able to learn a lot about the history and cultural context about Georgia. Afterwards we went to Signagi (and a few other stop) and tasted unique organic wines. George is a beautiful country with great people. Highly recommend this tour!
