I'm out of country now and will be back in Georgia in October. I can provide you with services both, as a guide and as a driver for up to 4 guests with my own car (Honda CRV Touring 2017) and as a guide for more than 4 guests accompanied by a different capacity vehicle and another driver. I have tours ( individual/groups; historical; cultural; adventure; culinary/gastro; wine; hiking; trekking etc.) from few hours up to 18-20 days at any location throughout Georgia, long distance tours require additional transportation and fuel costs. In addition to being interesting, my tours are very different from each other, pleasant, impressive, fun, considering your interest and taste, you have the opportunity to change it based on your wishes at any time, because for me the most important thing is your desire and comfort. I promise you will not get bored in my tour and you will remember it forever!

- In case of 4 guests, I can be both, a guide and a driver by my comfortable 4WD Honda CRV Touring, If you are more than 4 persons, in addition to me there will be a driver with more capacity and also a comfortable vehicle.

- You will need comfortable shoes, sunscreen (in the summer) and a hat.

- Please note, that the weather in the mountains is very changeable and even on a hot day you may need a raincoat or a thin jacket.

- You can change, shorten or add anything to this tour based on my recommendations and your wishes, my tours are flexible and there are no restrictions with me. Also, if you wish, we can stay overnight in Stepantsminda, extend the tour for another day, where we will add a hike to Gveleti Waterfall and the beautiful Dariali Valley, which ends at the border with Russia (we can talk about extra costs and changes before or during the tour).
