Madi was the best guide you could think of. She has so much knowledge, is a very cute person and speaks perfect English. The first wine tasting was rather impersonal and went a bit too quickly. But that made you appreciate the second one even more. Very thorough and personal. We loved Sighnaghi! And Madis happiness on her hometown. Thanks for the great day.

Zesvà is the best guide we could get for the trip to Armenia. 🇦🇲 He has so much knowledge about Georgien and Armenian history, knows the beste places in Armenia and is a great guy all in all! The lunch at the families place was also more than great! Thanks for the wonderful day!

Our tour guide Chinka was incredible! We had the most wonderful day and tour. Highly recommend this experience and Chinka - such a lively, knowledgeable and fun tour guide! Never a dull moment!

Perfect tour to discover Kakheti in a day trip. The second winery (Nicolas) was amazing with great natural wine.
