Full description
This city tour will take you through the highlights of Tbilisi. Begin by exploring the Old Town, where you can marvel at the architecture in the city's historic district, boasting a rich display of Georgian, Byzantine, Oriental, and Neoclassical European styles. Tbilisi is compact so you can easily explore the nearby synagogue, Armenian Church, the Mosque, and Georgian Orthodox churches, which are a staple of Georgian culture. The proximity and peaceful co-existence of these religious structures is a testament to Georgian tolerance.  Visit the Metekhi Church and the monument to Vakhtang Gorgasali, the king of Georgia (Iberia) during the second half of 5th century. Take a cable car to Narikala Fortress to enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the city. Walk down to the district of sulfur bath houses, passing by the only mosque in Tbilisi. Stroll through the Sharden area full of narrow streets with cozy cafés, wine tasting bars, souvenir shops and breathe in the living past. Visit Sioni Cathedral, Anchiskhati Basilica, and the clock tower of the famous Rezo Gabriadze Theatre. Finally, take the rail lift on the funicular for an unforgettable view of Tbilisi.

Good guide

Good guide. Enjoyable. A bit lacking in English

October 4, 2019

Our guide gave an informative tour of the city. The most interesting thing was actually hearing some of his experiences and perspectives of growing up in the city as a local. One point to clarify is the additional cost for a museum tour. When we got to the museum, we were informed that we needed to pay an additional 45 lari for a museum guide. Although I expected to pay for cable car and funicular, this museum guide was not mentioned in the trip details I found online. I found this to be a high additional cost considering the price we were already paying for one guide, so we declined this part of the tour. It may be helpful to include this information in your trip agenda or modify the tour to provide an alternative.
