    Great experience if you are new to Georgia. Georgi is very nice and knowledgeable. We have seen many things around Kutaisi in one day, but the pace was just right. So we had a very relaxing, insightful and fun day with Georgi.

Amazing cave Prometeus

The Cathedral and the monasteries were interesting, especially the surrounding view is magnificent. The Prometheus Cave is very beautiful and well maintained and the group is spoken in both English and Russian. The other cave is much smaller and not too spectacular but the surrounding park is beautiful. The guide Giorgi a connoisseur of places gave us all the information possible and made the journey enjoyable. I recommend the excursions and thanks to the organizers and the guide in particular.

Well organized tour through Georgia's historical places

Wir enjoyed this tour. Our very friendly, accommodating and dedicated guide: Giorgi Nikoladze told us many wonderful facts and legends about the history of Georgia. The Prometheus cave is also worth the trip. The tour was well organized and thought through. We could take as much time as we needed at any point.

Great experience if you are new to Georgia. Georgi is very nice and knowledgeable. We have seen many things around Kutaisi in one day, but the pace was just right. So we had a very relaxing, insightful and fun day with Georgi.

Very nice guide, good tour. Unfortunately the weather wasnt good, but I still enjoyed it. The Prometheus cave was a bit hard to handle for someone older and not so good at climbing stairs. But overall I recommend this tour!

Amazing experience

Giorgi was a fantastic guide, calm, respectful. He showed us many places full of histories and legends, both in nature than indoor. The drive was careful and the trip very confortable. I really recommend it.
