Tour Plan

Day 1:Arrival in Kutaisi and meeting at the airport

Arrival in Kutaisi and meeting at the airport. Transfer to Tbilisi and overnight there.

Day 2:Tbilisi – Mtskheta sightseeing tour

• After breakfast, the day starts with an exploration of a fabulous city Tbilisi – a city of wonders. Our first destination will be Holy Trinity Cathedral of Tbilisi – the highest cathedral in Georgia, which is unique with its architecture. It is a synthesis of different church styles in Georgia. Next destination is Metekhi, situated on a hill, which is overlooking the river Mtkvari, Rike Park and the Bridge of Peace – the 13th most unusual bridges in the world and a modern architectural masterpiece. We will walk down from Metekhi to the bridge, passing through the Rike Park.
• On the bridge, you can take tons of photos with old Tbilisi views –with presidential palace, Narikala Fortress, the river Mtkvari and Metekhi in the background. It is a breathtaking view from below. Next, we will travel by a cable car to the Narikala Fortress, which represented an entrance gate into the city in the distant past and from there you can admire the entire city. After Narikala, we will move to bath district. As you are approaching Abanotubani (the bath district), the smell of sulfur is getting stronger and stronger, since the baths are built on naturally occurring hot sulfursprings.
• Legvtakhevi waterfall in the heart of the city comes next. It is the first Tbilisi from where you can take unforgettable memories with you by only a few clicking on your video camera. Enjoy strolling in Meidan square through a narrow Sharden street, full of cozy cafes, restaurants, wine tasting bars and souvenir shops. The way goes to the statue of Tamada - a replica of a small statue found near Kutaisi, dating back to the 7th century BC, which proves a Georgian wine tradition from the ancient time.
• From Tbilisi, you will visit old capital of Iberia – Mtskheta with its gorgeous and once the major cathedral of Georgia – Svetitskhoveli, designated as UNESCO world heritage site and go up to the Jvari Monastery, majestically towering Mtskheta with an impressive view over the confluence of two major rivers of Georgia – Mtkvari and Aragvi.

Day 3: Day in Tbilisi

On the day you have many options, like going shopping in Galleria or Tbilisi Mall or seeing museums such as Museum of Illusions, The Museum of Digital Art, Museum of Fine Arts or Georgian National Museum. Overnight in Tbilisi.

Day 4:Tbilisi –Gudauri – Kazbegi

• After breakfast and checking out from the hotel in Tbilisi, we will move to Gudauri ski resort. Our first destination will be Zhinvali water reservoir, which is an extremely amazing green lake with water branches around hills full of trees. Next destination is a spectacular Ananuri architectural complex, a former summer residence of Aragvi Dukes, unique with its towers, dating back to the 16-17th centuries.
• From the highest tower of the fortress opens a superb view of Zhinvali reservoir and the fortress itself. After Ananuri, we proceed our way on the Georgian Military Road leading to Vladikavkaz, Russia and stop near White and Black Aragvi river branches, which is a wonderful sight for everyone. Gudauri is the last destination – it is a ski resort in Georgia from where opens a magnificent panoramic view of mountains, which is truly astonishing. On the way, you can taste Georgian mineral spring water that flows on a mountain slope and leaves stalagmitic rock – travertine.
• Our next stop is Kazbegi, a small town near Russian border, where you will see a stunning Mkinvartsveri – the seventh highest peak in the Caucasus Mountains. Reaching Gergeti Trinity Church located at an altitude of 2170 m. by a 4WD vehicle (it will be extra 10$ per person) never leaves you insensitive. In case you are lucky in terms of weather conditions, you will have a perception of walking above clouds. Overnight in Tbilisi.

Day 5: Tbilisi –Bodbe – Sighnaghi – Tsinandali tour

• After breakfast in the morning, our tour guide and driver will lead you to the east part of Georgia – Kakheti, known as a wine region with its amazing vineyards causing never-ending memories especially in autumn when grapes are ripe and hanging from the wine trees.
• We will visit Bodbe to enjoy views over Alazani Valley, beautiful nature that keeps you speechless and move to Sighnaghi – ‘a city of love’ fortified by a defensive wall with towers facing the Greater Caucasus mountains. It is newly rebuilt city with fascinating streets and reddish brown tile roofs. We will walk along the wall and breathe the fresh air of Sighnaghi.
• Our next destination is Tsinandali – a house museum of AleksandreTchavtchavadze, who introduced European enlightenment ideals to Georgia and made first bottled wine. Around the house, there is a big garden full of greenery, birds and squirrels like in a fairy tale. Overnight in Tbilisi.

Dilijan is “the Switzerland of Armenia.” On the way to Dilijan pay a visit to Haghartsin Monastery, situated near the densely forested region of Dilijan. Then we will have a short walk along the azure Lake Sevan. Lake Sevan has a unique combination of great size, high mountain location, and comparatively “soft water”.
