The best thing we did in Georgia. We took a private tour on the first day, which was great and set us up nicely for the rest of the tour. The guide was great. Very knowlegeable and informative. Except for all the great places he showed us, he recommended other great attractions and restaurants for the rest of the tour. Also picked us up in the hotel and returned us back.

It was a great experience, Oki was an excellent, friendly guide, she took us through the all the landmarks and shared all the historical and cultural background.
