    The tour was very well organized by City Sightseeing World Sightseeing tour. Apparently it was the first day on the job for the tour operator a young lady Nutza, but she was very professional and friendly with the guests. We had a small mishap on the way wherein the bus struck a startled cow, which damaged the bus. The tour guide arranged for a replacement vehicle while we visited the Gergeti Trinity Church.

    All the stops along the way were wonderful, the bus was comfortable and ample time given to each stop. Highly recommend this day tour while visiting Georgia

    Very scenic drive from Tblisi via the military road to Kazbegi mountains. The guide was very informative and knowledgeable of of the history and sites that we went to. The ride was nicely broken up both on the way to the mountain and on the way back.

    World Sightseeing Tour operator is very helpful and professional. I will recommend their company to my fellow travellers. I can't forget Arcena and Isabello not sure with the spelling of their names. Both of them are very passionate in their job. I am beyond impressed. I look forward to my future visit in Georgia. I have an unforgettable trip in this diverse country.

    This trip was not the same as what Viator advertised.
    This tour is not going to Treaty of Georgievsk Monument and not close to Gergeti Trinity Church. The last stop is at Gudauri- ski resort which is almost half way of the advertised tour and return back. For this tour City SightSeeing Company is charging only 65 GEL approximately USD 26 equivalent. Viator charged me USD 34.5.
    However the tour guide Mr. Zezva is an awesome dude who speaks very good English and very professional guide. The driver was also good and safe.

    It was a very well organised tour, Our Guide Nina was very joyful, energetic and friendly. The Bus was very comfortable and drive was hassle free. Me and my family had nice time. Paragliding was expensive but that was optional so nothing much to complaint about :-
