You will reach a significant altitude on this trip (2,200 metres) at the highest point so a good level of fitness is required for hiking. That said, alternative activities can often be arranged for those who would prefer not to hike.
This trip uses a mix of public and private transportation. While the latter is convenient, taking public transport in Georgia is a great way to experience daily life as the locals do.
Photography of sensitive sites such as military bases and power installations is prohibited. You maybe charged a photo fee at some tourist site. Be aware of cultural sensitivities when photographing churches and other religious sites.
As we don't want you to miss anything, the itinerary is densely packed, so you'll be busy. There will, however, be plenty of free time and opportunity for independent exploration.
On some days, there is a lot of walking between sights and around towns and cities. While it can be tiring to be on your feet, this is the best way to see a destination. Make sure you bring comfortable walking shoes with good support.
This itinerary is valid for departures from 01 January 2018 to 31 December 2018. View the itinerary for departures between 01 January 2019 - 31 December 2019

The Georgia Adventure tour allows you to visit most part of the country and balance the "cultural" parts with more physical activities, e.g. hiking. The scenery of Georgia is just breathtaking and varied: from the highest mountains in Caucasus to the Black Sea to the city of Tbilisi e and the many monasteries. It was a great experience for me and will keep many memories of it for a long time.
