Know More about this tour

  • Borjomi is a small town in the mountains. There are many beautiful places to visit there, but the most famous is the town because of mineral water Borjomi with unique healing qualities and taste. Its been known for centuries, that this water was unique, but it really becomes famous during Russian reign in Georgia. Russian built here resort, palaces, and found out about mineral water itself. Borjomi water won its first gold medal in 1907 in Belgium. The water has been bottled since 1896.
  • We continue our way to Vardzia cave town (12th century). Then we visit Khertvisi Fortress (10th century) before moving to the magnificent Vardzia. Vardzia is one of the highlights of the trip and stretches over half a kilometer along the river Mtkvari, with 19 tiers. There used to be about 3000 caves here, but now there are just over 500. It has a church hewn out of rock with amazing 12th-century frescoes. The Complex also includes living quarters, small hall-type churches, and refectories, wine cellar, etc.
  • Continue towards the town of Akhaltsikhe (New Fortress) that always has had strategic importance. Thats why the fortress Rabat has been built here in IX century, so its been called the fortress inside the fortress. It was guarding Georgia for centuries, but there were periods when enemies took over. The fortress keeps traces of both times, giving us an unforgettable impression. The fortress has been renovated several years ago. Here you can see the Georgian church, mosque and Madrasa Islamic school, citadel, and unique museum. The Rabati fortress is one of the highlights of this region.

    Russian and English speaking tourists were combined in one tour ! the tour guide had to keep translating. The bus was so uncomfy, the driver was driving so fast and like crazy, the tour guide had a looooww voice that I had to ask him many times to raise his voice because I couldn't hear him. The tour operator is not that good, but the views and places you're going is worth it.

    The tour was good, it was a 14 hour round trip. We especially enjoyed seeing the Vardzia caves which was a highlight of the tour. It was interesting to see Borjomi but we felt we were there too long just to taste water.
