Full description
Departing from the center of Tbilisi, embark on a full-day tour to visit the sunniest regions of Georgia. The eastern region of Kakheti is Georgia’s premier wine-producing area, where almost everywhere you go you’ll be invited to drink a glass of traditional amber wine. Along the way, make a stop at the village of Badiauri where you can learn how to bake traditional Georgian bread and can even try to do it by yourself. For those that love cheese, there are many cheeses in Georgia which you can try accompanied by hot, fresh, crusty bread. Next up, visit the Bodbe Monastery, one of the most important religious sites in Georgia. Today there is a nunnery where the monastery used to be, and the St. George Cathedral, part of the monastery, which holds the remains of St. Nino. There is also a new cathedral built, using much of the same construction methods used to make the most famous cathedrals in Georgia centuries ago. You'll then arrive to Sighnaghi, known as the town of love. There your guide will tell the legend that happened in this city many centuries ago as you walk along the cobbled streets of the city, climb the fortress wall, and visit one of the towers. There is also a local market where you can try and buy Georgian spices, sweets, sauces and much more. Finally, it's time to go to a winery to taste Georgian wine. There are so many different wines, and you are bound to find something that you like. Your local guide will also tell you the secrets of making wine and how to drink it.

Aleksi was a great guide - kind, funny and super informative. Definitely worth going for the wine upgrade to see the traditional method - we loved Levan at the Cradle of Wine - and the tour was structured perfectly...out via a bakery, convent, then lunch in the city of love and wine on the way back in the afternoon (with time for a snooze!). Great way to spend a day and thoroughly recommend.

Although it was a rainy day, we enjoyed our tour with Aleksi...we had some great food, great conversation and a very smooth drive...he provided us with plenty of historic details and stories of all the places we visited and even told us about the Cathedral near our hotel which we had missed to visit earlier...totally recommend the tour!!
