Local

I’m Mariam, an energetic “Tbilisian” and certified guide. I arrange tours all around Georgia and offer lots of local fun to travellers. I have experience in tour operating for 2 amazing years.

My city has a very special atmosphere, and I know plenty of local places where you can best experience it.

I’m especially good when it comes the local nightlife. After dark, Tbilisi’s old, hospitable soul becomes young, wild and free. Its bohemian vibes and unique style of music and dance are, in my opinion, worth discovering from a local’s perspective.

I’ll be happy to host you in Georgia!

Highly Recommended
The trip to Kazbegi is definitely something you must do when visiting Georgia. The location is fantastic and the mini pit stops on the way are sites you shouldn't miss. Our guide was very friendly and knew all the best locations to stop, especially to take pictures.

Excellent tour!
Best Experience in Georgia
Thanks to Mariam who was very supportive and cooperative to complete the tour with ease. Visitors should be careful while planning for this trip as the caves are closed on Mondays. Even though, we had booked the trip on Sunday and Monday, Mariam helped us to plan our tour to visit maximum places and achieved our target to visit all cave locations on Sunday. Tour to Okatse Canyons was on separate 4X4 vehicle arranged by the guide and is an experience different from Desert Safari. Really appreciate our guide who was very friendly and helped us to have best variety of Georgian dishes on the way to Kutaisi in a private car while enjoying the nature's beauty of the landscapes, hills and greenery. Be ready ready to walk for at least 2-3 kms per day and have a good trainer shoes preferably hiking shoes covering upto ankle. Don't your go pro or professional camera. However, in the caves best shots could be taken with a smartphone with good camera in night mode.
