This was the tour I booked to kill time, not thinking much of it, and wow was I wrong. The cave town is impressive, and grants some beautiful views of the georgian countryside. The Stalin museum regardless on where you stand on your political views, is the perfect place to start a conversation about life in the former Soviet Union and what it has meant to gain independence. The Jvari monastery and Mtshketa were a surprise, visiting the tombs of kings and relics of an apostle and Jesus himself (his mantle is preserved here). BUT, the highlight if the trip, not just the tour but my entire trip, was having lunch with a local family, and seeing tradition folk dance. This tour quickly became my favorite day in Georgia. Book now. Nika was also the perfect guide, he explained everything both from historical facts and also his impressions as a local. Amazing. All of it.
As our first day trip to discover mountains was really nice, we’ve tried another one to discover cultural sites and it was a perfect trip too ! Lot of things to learn and a perfect way to discover a lot and to meet Georgia with inside point of view !
George Coldman is a guy with warm hospitality and I’m amazed with his Knowledge about George Histrory and legacy. A must tour with Coldman !
