Full description

Start your tour at Jvari Monastery, a 6th-century orthodox monastery near Mtskheta. Listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the monastery stands on a rocky mountain above the confluence of the Mtkvari and Aragvi rivers, overlooking Mtskheta, the old capital of Georgia. Continue to Zhinvali Water Reservoir, located on the Georgian Military Highway. Learn the history of this Soviet dam, constructed in the 1980s. Then, arrive at the Ananuri Fortress, the seat of the Eristavis (Dukes) of Aragvi.

Discover the intriguing plots of this feudal dynasty that ruled the area from the 13th century. Explore the site of numerous historic battles and take in the magnificent scenery — ideal for landscape photography. After Ananuri Fortress, have lunch in Pasanauri, the homeland of the most famous traditional Georgian food, Khinkali. Admire the Friendship Monument of Georgian and Russian people in Gudauri.

Located on the Georgian Military Highway between Gudauri ski resort and the Jvari Pass, the memorial consists of a large round stone arch and concrete structure overlooking the Devil's Valley in the Caucasus Mountains. Then, arrive at Kazbegi, and explore one of the most beautiful places in Georgia: Gergeti Trinity Church. The church is located under Kazbegi Mountain, 2170 meters above sea level, and offers spectacular panoramic views of the entire valley. Enjoy the serene natural beauty of this isolated marvel. Finish your tour at the Rooms Hotel Kazbegi. Relax with a cup of coffee in their stylish restaurant and soak up the stunning views of Kazbegi.

The mountain view, monastery, monument ... everything was great. I'm glad that I tried the extended version of the tour. Both of the guides (Oki and Lika) were really nice. The people at the office were also really polite. I will definetely check the tours of this company (Gamarjoba Georgia Tours) if I visit Georgia again.

Tour to Jvari was with Nini (Ungo) while the remaining tour was with Buta. Both guides were friendly, polite and professional. Communication prior to, during and after the tour was excellent. A well paced tour with sufficient time to visit each beautiful site. Overall, a very organized and wonderful trip with Gamarjoba.

Brilliant tour - can't recommend it highly enough. The locations were absolutely stunning, and timed well so it didn't feel like too long sat in the car in one go. Sat outside at the Rooms Hotel Kazbegi, is probably the best view i've ever had a drink from in my life! There were only 5 of us on the tour, so felt like a semi-private tour. Plus the car was super comfortable and spacious, with all the seats able to recline.
