Program tour

Day 1.
Meeting at the airport of Kutaisi. We will start our fascinating journey through Georgia accompanied by a guide with an introduction to the historical center of Kutaisi, a city of extraordinary beauty in western Georgia, located on two banks of the Rioni River. Arriving in Kutaisi, you find yourself in a corner of the ancient history of this hospitable country. Kutaisi is one of the most ancient cities in the world. The first memos confirming its existence date back to the 6th century BC.

We will see the visiting card of the city - the Bagrat Temple, which is one of the best examples of late medieval architecture, built in the X-XI centuries, during the reign of the Georgian king Bagrat III - the founder of the great family of princes Bagrationi. This magnificent cathedral rises above Kutaisi, and it can be seen from anywhere in the city.

Next, we will visit the Gelati Monastery, which for a long time was the cultural and educational center of Georgia, with its own academy. Among the teachers and graduates of the academy there were many famous philosophers, theological scholars, speakers and translators.

We will visit the houses where such famous poets as Maxim Gorky and Nikolai Gumilev, as well as composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky stayed. We will also look into the house of the famous Tiflis architect Cornelius Tatishchev, made in the Moorish style and see many others, striking in its beauty-facades.

And of course, we will admire the most beautiful and famous ceremonial porches with its unique architecture and history. We will show you our city from the inside, with our own zest - these are amazingly beautiful wall paintings with biblical, historical, literary subjects and whole genre paintings; houses with carved decor and stained-glass windows.

We will visit the ancient temples of Metekhi and Anchiskhati, taste wine in the wine cellar, by the way in Georgian it is “Marani” , see the famous Tiflis baths, glorified by many famous writers and poets.

At the end of the walking part of our tour, we move to the ancient capital of the Georgian kingdom - to the city of Mtskheta. Today Mtskheta is the center of Christianity and the history of religion, where pilgrims come from all over the world. Almost 1 700 years ago Georgia adopted Christianity in Mtskheta! The oldest monasteries and temples of Svetitskhoveli and Jvari, dating from the VI-IX centuries AD, have been preserved, and skillful frescoes have been decorating the vaults of churches for more than 500 years.
The view from Jvari to the confluence of the Aragvi and Kura rivers, which rises above the ancient Mtskheta, is breathtaking.

Day 6.

 Breakfast. Free day in Batumi or optional excursion to Gomis Mta.

We invite you on an amazing journey into the kingdom of mountains and pristine nature called Gomis Mta.

This is an unexplored paradise in Georgia, where you can not only touch the clouds with your hands, but also literally swim in the clouds, collect stars, watch sunrises and sunsets as in the window of an airplane, only standing on a top of a mountain surrounded by alpine meadows. And this is only 90 kilometers from Batumi, on the mountain border of the regions of Adjara and Guria.

There is so healing air that locals generally do not get sick. Everything here is subject to the laws of nature, here people live with the sun, conduct subsistence farming and have simple soulful conversations at a common table. They still live here in wooden houses without electricity, gas, water and Internet. They make the most delicious homemade cheese and butter, as hundreds of years ago.

Along the way, we will visit a tea production in Ozurgeti, where they make Georgian tea that was so famous in the USSR, we will collect tea leaves on plantations with our own hands, see how they make one of the best fruit vodkas in Georgia, rise 2100 m above the level of the sea, we will cook a generous dinner of natural local products in a peasant's house with all the home-made wine and all this observing how the clouds float at our feet.

Let's say without false modesty - this will be the best day that you will spend in Georgia and you will remember it until your next trip, it is impossible not to return here, we checked!

(The cost of the tour is $ 50 / person.).
