Hi. I can't answer you to your question, as I was going with locals there. Its around 10 km to Gelati and closer to Motsameta (to one way taxi could cost approx. 5 lari). You can take a marshrutka in a city center to Gelati, then walk to Motsameta around 1 km or ask somebody to lift you there. Georgians are very nice and helpful. Enjoy the trip:-)
