The Eurasian country of Georgia is an absolute delight, with small villages nestled in the Caucasus Mountains, gorgeous beaches along the Black Sea and vibrant vineyards producing delicious wines. Georgia’s most popular attraction is Vardzia, an awe-inspiring cave monastery. Try a walking tour along the cobbled streets of Tbilisi, or head north to tour the cultural wonders of Mtskheta.
“I have difficulty trying to listen to the guide talking because either no microphone or speakers system poor and noisy inside van very noisy.I noticed ample time to complete each day’s journey but Azerbaijan guide started late and seemed to rush us during walking.There was an argument between Georgian guide and fellow tour member resulting the driver got angry and drove dangerously in sending us back to hotel.We got worry for our safety and got change of driver and guide second day.The Armenian lady guide is the best because she is very patient with us and can communicable well with us in English.Overall the hotels are very good especially the ones near the border.”
