Dear Khatuna, We are writing to thank you for your arrangement for our trip in Georgia. Though the weather was not too good that we needed to change our itinerary, we appreciated much the help of our driver Georgi who did a good job. He brought us to feel the beautiful snow that evening which was not his duty, and always took care of us by providing coffee, tea and very yummy snacks on the way. We feel especially impressed by Georgi who tried very hard using Geogle translation even though he couldn't speak English, and was very patient to have stopped the car for us to take nice photos. It's lot of fun and warm-feeling having Georgi to be our driver all along the route. Please relay our appreciation to Georgi !! Cheers. Read more

Sherin, United Arab Emirates

Dear Tinatin, I just wanted to review on the tour. We were soo happy with the way you organized the entire tour and our guide Nino. Our family was emotional at the time of departure to part such a lovely company. She was very informative and we also took notice how she cared about the environment by making sure to collect all the plastic bottles she saw on the locations of the attractions and later disposing them to where it belongs. She is well versed about the places we visited and she did share the history of each locations. Her passion to her job was evident each time she told the history of Georgia. Also, she made it a point to leave the hotel only after we have completed the check-in process and received the key. And Guram, was also a very helpful man. I guess it was his inefficiency with the language made it difficult for him to entertain us. But his smile once in a while did make us very happy. About the beauty of Georgia cannot be summarized in this mail. We would like to thank you once again for providing us with a memorable stay. Read more
