I had a wonderful tour of the opera and ballet theatre house including a walk about Old Tbilisi. I was fortunate to sit in a VIP seat to watch the dress rehearsal of “Tosca” What a treat! Thank you to my amazing guide Niniko for the company, information and overall hospitality! Highly recommend tour!
