This stunning cathedral in the heart of Arsukidze dates back to the early 11th century and serves as a visual reminder of the iconic Georgian architecture that has made this region famous. Travelers will find ornate stone carvings on Svetitskhoveli’s exterior and detailed frescos on the interior walls. The robes of Jesus Christ are said to be tucked underneath the church’s nave. For this reason, thousands of pilgrims find their way to this famous cathedral every year. Travelers can revel at the artistry of what’s widely considered the most beautiful church in the nation, and learn about the Georgian monarchs who are buried here as they explore the grounds.

There’s not enough space in this paragraph to describe how amazing this tour is. Everything about this tour is a hit. We take you to places older than most of the sites that you will see in most other countries in Europe - 6,000-year-old caves, 4th Century Monastery, 11th Century Church. You feel Georgian history in the beautiful countryside. The views from the all visited places are breathtaking. Maybe some places like the museum of Stalin aren’t your cup of tea, but this part is also optional and our guides try to tell you a lot of interesting stories about him. We show his birthplace and will be able to go on Stalin's train carriage. The best part of the tour is our wonderful, knowledgeable, and super-cool guides. Our guides are highly informative, but also hilarious and fun The lunch on this tour is definitely a highlight! A lovely local family welcome us into their home and serve us the most delicious food and wine, and they perform some traditional Georgian dances for us.
