A most interesting, thought-provoking, and above all enjoyable tour of the historic Georgian city of Kutaisi. Monstaries, caves, ruins, parks, museums...a lot to take in. Best of all, you are guided by a very friendly and knowledgeable Kutaisi native who will make sure this will be a day to remember.

We saw so many interesting things on this day! Monasteries, caves, abandoned sanatoriums, and enjoyed the amazing views over the hills around Kutaisi. Our guide Giorgi was very polite and we learned a lot about Georgian history and culture along the tour. Thank you!

Giorgi is an excellent tour guide with impeccable English. He changed the itinerary according to our wishes and added some extra highlights. I would definitely book himmagsin for the next tour.

Georgi è stato un’ottimo autista e una buona guida. Sempre prodigo di spiegazioni e sempre con il sorriso.

The guide Giorgi is great! so many interesting things learned, not boring and informative. Recommend
