Tour itinerary:

Day 1: Tbilisi – Kutaisi – Gelati – Prometheus Cave – Tbilisi
At 08:00, our driver and guide will pick you up from your hotel in Tbilisi. Start your journey to Western Georgia once called “Aia” (230 km, 4 hours). The road to Kutaisi, the second biggest city in Georgia, will take you over Rikoti pass and through the longest tunnel in Georgia (1,722 m). The tunnel is also considered as a border between Western and Eastern parts of Georgia. Arrive in Kutaisi, the legendary city that was an ultimate destination of the Jason and Argonauts searching for the Golden Fleece. Visit Bagrati Cathedral (11th century), one of the best samples of medieval architecture towering over Kutaisi and visible from almost any point in the city.
Next stop is Gelati Academy built by King David the Builder in 12th century. Gelati was the center of spiritual and scientific life of the Middle Ages, the tomb of Georgian kings, and the cult place for pilgrims. It is under UNESCO protection as an object of cultural and historical legacy. Continue to Prometheus cave where you will walk in 1.5 km long tunnel to enjoy breathtaking views of stalactites, stalagmites, petrified waterfalls, underground rivers, and lakes along the cave. Underground light system filled with LED lights of all rainbow colours marvellously highlights natural beauty of Prometheus cave. Drive back to Tbilisi drop-off at your hotel.
