Tour map

Hospitable and romantic Georgia is waiting for you to treat with famous Caucasian kebabs and “Kindzmarauli” wine to poetic toasts and foot-tapping lezginka dance. The country of ancient culture, loaded with the southern sun, cherished by the sea and framed by the famous Caucasus Mountains, combines Western civilization and Georgian hospitality, love of historical heritage and a tribute to modern trends. Four days spent in both modern and old Georgian capitals and their surroundings is an exposure to the special world of Caucasian romance, culinary art and hospitality of local people.
