Full description
The first stop of the day will be in Surami, where you will have the opportunity to taste a famous freshly-baked Nazuqi (sweet bread baked in an oven), which is a morning must-have for local Georgians. Continue on the tour to the Martvili district, one of the most gorgeous places in Georgia, combining different unique natural environments. You will be shocked with brilliant scenery, sensational waterfalls, and a boat trip in the river which possesses a deep-green color. You can board a boat with a boatman and he will take you on an unforgettable journey between the high rocks in the canyon. You will also have the chance to have lunch (by request) and try out traditional Georgian dishes. Get your camera ready for Kumistavi (Prometheus Cave), which is the biggest cave in Georgia. There are spectacular views of stalactites, stalagmites, petrified waterfalls, underground rivers, and lakes throughout this vast and impressive cave. Within the cave, there are colorful lights ranging from orange, red, pink, and blue. You have two options to enjoy your impressive cave tour. You may choose a walking tour along the 1,600-meter route, or can rather opt for a boat ride along the underground river. When the tour ends you will have the choice of being dropped in Kutaisi, the third-biggest city in Georgia, or Tbilisi.

Lots of road, which allows to observe different types of landscapes, houses, urban centers. The waterfall and the canoe ride are refreshing. Only regret, the visit of the cave is done at a run with a local guide who favors Russian to English. Special mention to our driver Gudja, ultra devoted.

This is the 2nd time I have booked a tour with Gamarjoba and again I had a wonderful time. Both our professional guide Zura and our driver Gia definitely made the experience unforgettable. The trip was not just about the historical and beautiful places we’ve visited but the warmth and hospitality they have shown. I most definitely enjoyed our lunch; dining with strangers is an enjoyable way to connect with people. I definitely felt like I was on a tour with friends during the trip. It was once again another trip to remember!

I liked the cave and the canyon. I hope that after the curfew will be lifted they'll have one more canyon or one more cave in this trip. Because the road is long and the time is short :) The guide was great, and also the driver. The restaurant was interesting. The boat we had at the canyon was super cool. The canyon itself was beautiful but very short walk. I felt like it needs to be longer, maybe the other canyon will be better.
