About me:

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! Read more

Breathtaking views
Since the weather forecast showed rain in the afternoon, I was worried that I won’t be able to see the great view of mountains, So I asked to skip Mutskheta. Mariam was very nice and flexible to accept it and even changed the order of the stops for me.

Thanks to her and the professional driver, David who had managed the bumpy dirt road up to the top of the mountain, I was able to see the spectacular view before it started to get cloudy. On the way back, the sun came out and I could see the beautiful color of water at the Jvari water reservoir, too.

I definitely recommend this tour full of picturesque places. You won’t regret even the weather may not be perfect, just meeting Mariam already is cheerful enough.
Wonderful personalized tour of Kazbegi region
went on this tour in April 2018.

Review of the tour operator:

I had a wonderful experience booking a tour with Marian. I decided to go to the Kazbegi Mountains about 24 hours before the tour; despite the short notice, Marian contacted me almost immediately to confirm the tour. She was friendly and very helpful in our correspondence - she wanted to make sure I got what I wanted out the trip. Because I booked the trip at short notice, she wasn’t to give the tour herself so she arranged for a colleague to handle the tour. Overall. Marian is lovely - friendly, knowledgeable, communicates well, passionate about her business and sharing her culture with visitors.

Review of the tour:

Overall, great experience.

I was picked up at my apartment on time. The tour consisted of a driver, a tour guide, and me. I needed to return to Tbilisi by 7pm, and we arrived on time back to my apartment. The total tour time was about 8 hours.

Car was clean and in good repair, and the driver very professional. Water was provided. The tour guide, Sofi, was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about all the various sites we visited. She was fluent in English.

The tour includes a variety of activities (paragliding, horseback riding) and sites to visit along the way to the mountain. Marian’s tour is designed to your preferences: for example, I didn’t want to do the outdoor activities, so the tour guide easily changed our itinerary to focus more on the historic sites. I also liked that we spent as much time (or as little) as I wanted at each site.

Marian checked in with the tour guide multiple times to make sure everything was going well. She also texted me after the tour to make sure I had enjoyed my day, which I really liked.

The only downside is that food is not included in the trip; we tried to go to a restaurant, but it was packed so we stopped at a gas station. I had to purchase my lunch, which was fine, but good to be aware of this.

Overall, this was a great day trip with a reputable tour operator. I’ve recommended Marian’s tours to my friends visiting the region, and they have had a wonderful with her.
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.
