From the moment you make a booking and get a message from the owner of the company, you get the sense that you are in the hands of professionals. And once you actually go on the tour, you realize how true this is.
We had the pleasure of having Shalva as our tour guide. He was 15 minutes earlier than our pick-time which was great. His car was spacious, clean, and very comfortable to ride in. His knows the city well and knows the roads even better. Though driving in Georgia can be quite hectic for those that are not used to it, Shalva is a calm, safe, and professional driver so you always feel that you are in good hands.
Furthermore, his English skills are superb. We had such a good time conversing with him all throughout the tour. He was quick to point out historic landmarks along the way and he really knows his country quite well. Being a knowledgeable and intelligent person is just one part of what made this tour experience so fantastic for us.
The experience of going into a private families home to drink their locally made wine and have lunch served by them is truly one of a kind. Everyone we met along the way was so welcoming and hospitable. We got to see the beautiful scenery Georgia is known for and were able to sample a number of different delicious wines. The experience felt like it was personalized to us which is exactly what you would expect from a private tour.
My final verdict is that this is a must-do tour in Georgia. It is absolutely worth the money and time and you will walk away totally enriched by the culture and history of this beautiful country.
