Tour Overview

Our driver will meet you at your hotel and lead you to your car to begin the Kazbegi tour.

We begin the day by visiting Zhinvali water reservoir. Zhinvali dam was built in 1980’s because Tbilisi was growing rapidly and needed a new water supply. As a result we have a beautiful lake, where we stop to enjoy the stunning views of the water and surrounding colorful forests.

Afterwards, we’ll continue to explore the famous 17th century Ananuri Fortress, known for its haunting history. Attacked many times throughout the centuries, it still stands strong and attracts each and every guest. Then we’ll head up the breathtaking military highway of Georgia to Gudauri, where we’ll see the Friendship Monument. Here you’ll also have a chance to have an unforgettable experience of paragliding over the Caucasus mountains.

Finally we’ll head to Stepantsminda also known as Kazbegi, here you’ll switch to a 4WD off-road car to go up to the stunning Gergeti monastery under the 5047 meter mountain of Kazbegi. Which was Built in 14th century. Gergeti used to be a secluded monastery. Ever since, there have been monks living here throughout the year, even through the freezing temperatures of -35 Celsius!

Enjoy a home cooked dinner and try to make your own Khinkali during the cooking masterclass in the village of Gergeti.

Finally, we’ll return to Tbilisi and our driver will leave you at your hotel.

hey offered the perfect blend of emotions for travellers on their own as well as a family. Nika was an amazing guide who took us to exclusive locations apart from the ones offered. Not to mention, the driver was really friendly and we felt more like a family. We had opted for additional services like paragliding and airport transfers in which they proved themselves to be systematic (on time arrivals) as well as concerned (offered to stop by for food and other services). Kazbegi Adventure was the best option offered among the other competitors (food with a local family and paragliding). Loved it!! Thank you Irakhli :). A must go for all those who seek what its like to be truly Georgian 🙂

Two pieces of advice. Firstly, if you’re thinking of visiting Georgia – do. It’s a great place for an enjoyable hassle free holiday with good food and wine, great scenery, historic places and friendly people. Secondly when you do visit look up Irakli at Kartveli Tours for trips out of the capital. My nephew and I went with him on a day trip to Kazbegi and were impressed, not just with the mountain scenery and ancient buildings but with Irakli’s knowledge and enthusiasm which brought the small group (8) together and made the trip a success. The stop at a family home where we were able to sample a variety of traditional Georgian dishes we very much enjoyed. If I were to visit Georgia again I would certainly want to use Irakli’s services as a guide and would recommend him to friends.

Highly recommend this tour. An all-day experience (in our case, the Kazbegi region and others) that you won’t want to miss out on. Definitely must-see attractions, and won’t be nearly as insightful or enjoyable without a quality guide like we had from this company.

We had an enjoyable, memorable trip today to the Ananuri Fortress, the Gudauri Friendship Monument and more. We toured with Beka. He was kind, knowledgeable about the history and he was on time. We are foodies and lunch was magnificent, the wine was nice and the cha cha was authentic. We had an amazing day! I definitely recommend Kartveli Tours!

rakli is so knowledgeable and a genuine guide who made us feel like family members. He was a phenomenal tour guide for our group! Spoke very good English and were easy to understand. It was an unforgettable experience to an extraordinarily beautiful country. It was like being introduced to these fabulous places by an old friend/family. Many thanks for such a wonderful Georgia trip that has left us with amazing memories. Please pass on our thanks to the drivers who pick us up at the airport (forgot their names, sorry!) , To Hodor *wink* and Mat they are an absolute credit to your company. Thank you very much for everything and hope to travel with you again. I will strongly recommend your company to anyone planning a trip to Georgia and I hope that we can travel with you again in the near future ourselves, we left feeling that we had made a new friend in Georgia. We were extremely happy with the tour that you arranged for us, it was certainly one of the best holidays that we have had. My favorite part is when we had lunch at the local family aside from the food ofcourse haha! But the feeling of eating together is just so personal. Madloba, Irakli! Keep going.

1) We had 2 hour tour in old Tbilisi and Irakli made our day. Very explanatory tour with a very friendly and experienced guide. I can highly recommend it.

2) We had a full day tour to Kazbegi and despite the weather had a wonderful experienced thanks to Marta who is very friendly , knowledgeable and fun pretty young lady made our day a lot of fun. Especially we enjoyed local family late lunch which gave us unique experience which we will never forget. Highlight of the trip though Gergeti Trinity Church which has a bumpy road but view worth it all.

3) Another day we had Cradle of Wine tour which basically takes you to east to see ancient wineries and taste different wines with another local family lunch. Along the way there are different stops which you enjoy the view and learn more about culture and history thanks to Beka which answered all our questions about politics, history and basically anything and never complained!

Overall: Small, yet experienced company provides fine tuned professional tours with excellent value of money. I cannot recommend them enough!

Travelling with a friend


A friend and I traveled for our spring break. We signed up for one tour and ended up having such an amazing time on our day trip to Armenia that we decided to sign up for the Kazbegi tour as well two days later. Kartveli tours is super accommodating! We were a few minutes late with an extra person and they fluctuated the group into a bigger van only losing 10 minutes from the planned exit time. They plan the activities perfectly (i.e. not too long in the car, amazing local cuisine, beautiful scenery, knowledgable guides, etc.). I highly recommend Kartveli Tours!!!



Travelling with group


joined small group day tour to Kazbegi and loved it! Beka, our guide (now our friend!), was excellent; very friendly, relaxed and could answer all the questions we’d saved up from our travels. The car was new and comfortable and Beka’s father was the most relaxing driver we had in Georgia.

We stopped at several cool places along the way (Ananuri, a panarama in the mountains etc), had enough time in each place, got some great photos and had an amazing lunch (with lots of Cha Cha!).

Highly recommended!

Despite I’ve been to so many countries and have had many tours in different places. This one will of course be on the top of my list. The guide was very nice and knowledgeable of all the places and their history and more importantly, to me, speaks very FLUENT English.


Been to many spots with astonishing views of Georgia. Also had lunch with a local family who were very kind, lovely and more importantly cooked very delicious food haha (included in the tour price).

Moreover, the price is inexpensive, looking at all the fun you get !



Travelling solo


Really good tour.. Picked up at 9.30 at our request, we were tired as we got in late but Saba, our tour guide, and the driver didn’t hurry us at all which was ideal.

Stopped at so many wonderful locations and at every point where we thought we’d get a good selfie! They were so relaxed and this made the trip really enjoyable.

Eating with the Georgian family was an amazing experience, the house looked rough and ready but inside the food was so tasty and they even let u take part in the cooking!

I wont go into all the details because I don’t want to ruin any surprises but I’d definitely recommend these guys to anyone going to Georgia, having Saba was like bringing a friend of ours on tour who just happened to know a lot about Georgia!
