The team assisted me very well since I booked with them, they were very friendly, informative and knowledgeable about history and details about every single place we visited and Georgia ofcourse, they were patient with us, supportive, kind to us, and caring for our safety.. I would love to go with "Gamarjoba" team for tours again and again and would suggest to everyone visits Georgia as well. Thanks to Lika, Meriam, to the drivers, and every single member in the team, they are super amazing.

The tour and the guide named Koba were amazing. We didn’t see any other tourists until after noon probably due to the bad conditions of the roads. However, we always felt save and learned a lot from Koba. Only the wine tasting missed expectations. The lady from the winery was not that enthusiastic, but apparently that always differs depending on the person there. Still highly recommended.

This was a really lovely day getting out of the city and seeing the mountains up close and personal. Irakli was a great guide, very friendly and fun to spend time with. The 4WD ride up the bumpy road to the church was especially memorable! Bring a snack with you if needed because lunch is pretty late in the day. Would highly recommend this to everyone!

Very nice and relaxed tour with a delicious treat from the bakery. Our guide Marina was very kind and helpful and she madr sure everyone was having a good time and she shared with us so much information about the history. Highly recommended.

Beautiful walking trip in rainbow mountains, monks monasteries. Guide and driver were professionals and well educated. Georgian nature is amazing
