We were guided by Lenny and Zaza the driver. What a fantastic team and such a great day! Although it's a long tour they helped make the most of the time with a when developed itinerary, some fantastic history of Georgia and some incredible locations. Would happily book another tour with the team.

A long but amazing day that's definitely worth it. Nini was a fantastic guide who made the time in the car pass quickly, and Giorgi a great and safe driver. Thank you both! Vardzia and Rabati are both absolutely amazing, so glad we went! Borjomi water didn't taste as bad as I thought it would :) The countryside also deserves a mention, the scenery is just beautiful in that region.
