I have done three tours from Tbilisi with three different comapnies, and the one organised by Friendly Georgia was by far the best of them, and also one of the best I have ever done! Our small group of 8 persons was very skilfully managed by our lovely, smiling and extremely well informed guide Khatuna and also the boss of the company Alex for a part of it too. Both cared for us a lot and took care of every detail of the trip. We made stops at many interesting places (e.g. the Zhinvali reservoir, the Ananuri fortess, the peace monument in Gudauri etc.) before we reached Stepantsminda and Gergeti with the amazing Gergeti church with the backdrop of Kazbegi, very clear on that sunny day. We had ample time for a meal at a lovely garden restaurant, snacks and toilet, but with that we still managed to catch the cable car back to Gadauri (lasting for one hour, optional). Khatuna provided us with very detailed information about all the places we saw. In a word, it was just a perfect day!
Alex and Eric were the very BEST tour guide and driver, always making sure the entire group was comfortable. Alex was beyond accommodating so we could see all the sights and following the weather to ensure we were able to see everything and then some with the optimal conditions of the day. He is a wealth of knowledge and knows the answers to all of your questions. I had the best time and could not recommend this tour enough. Definitely the highlight of Tbilisi!
The tour offers some really magnificent views and gives further insight into Georgian history and mentality. It was well organized, from getting in touch on the night before with detailed info about the meeting point in the morning to bringing us back to Tbilisi safely after a long day. Khatuna, our guide was very positive, communicative and helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed the day!
I had a great time on this trip. Our guide, Alexi, was extremely knowledgeable, patient, friendly, and happy to answer any of our questions. In addition to the information regarding the stops on the tour, he had a lot of general knowledge about Georgia in general. I give this tour a very big recommendation. The time flew by very fast.
We had a wonderful day with Khatuna. it was beautiful weather and every stop was stunning. We were happy for the opportunity for our daughter to paraglide, but it did hold up our progress. I'm not sure what could be done differently, but it was a great experience for her.
