Right guide make perfect trip
, May 2022
For any private tour the most important part is to have the right guide. We were travelling with David - very passionate and knowledgeable young man, who made this day a wonderful experience. We appreciated his communicativeness, good spirit and knowledge. He helped us understand a lot about Georgia, far beyond the program of this trip. In this trip he perfectly navigated the itinerary helping us get to the right place at the right time.
Georgian adventure

The tour was memorable - our tour guide Iraqli (sorry if I misspelled his name) was wonderful; he took us to beautiful places in the Kakheti region & he was also knowledgable about the history of Georgia. He even bought us some bread, oranges & churchelli from family farm stores. Thank you Iraqli for your fantastic service & I wish you the best in life!!!
Gorgeous Georgia

Irakli our guide - an encyclopedia of Georgian history gave us a comprehensive idea of the country’s interesting social political and cultural history Very safe and thoughtful driver and guide The monastery Goreji hike up to the tower gave us many photo ops and Irakli showed us the best spots. The city walls of Signagi and the Nino church were other highlights Amazing wine tasting at Khaketi Vineyards. Great Georgian food with a mix of spices and fresh produce is a delight to the palate. Lovely views
Awesome and fun trip!

Best of Kakheti tour was really the best of Kakheti! It was a wonderful trip organized by a great guide, Irakli! The monastery was beautiful and with Irakli we were able to learn more about it's history and religious customs. In Signagi, we got to walk the walls of the city and Irakli took us to a very tasty restaurant where we could try the local wine. We learned more about the wine making process from him and got the chance to stop at a local shop for some real Georgian sheep/goat cheese. We highly recommend this trip and Iraklli as the guide. He was really knowledgeable and friendly and willing to teach us more about the Georgian culture, customs, and history. He even went as far as to let us know after the trip what type of grasshopper we had found in Gareji and to give us food and local things to try for the rest of our trip.
Beautiful Georgian countryside
, Oct 2019
A perfect and knowledgeable guide - and a very good driver. Difficult roads. Lovely food and lovely people - as everywhere here. All questions answered to the full, and in brilliant English. We had a great day and felt so good taken care of! The only difficulties were with the bumpy road - which was handled as well as possible . A very comfortable car.

Absolutely wonderful experience
, Sep 2019
This was an incredible trip that could not have been more wonderful. Our guide Levan and driver Mamouka were warm, funny and knowledgeable about everywhere we went. Levan has a deep understanding of the history of Georgia and provided great insight to the places we visited. Even though Mamouka didn't speak English, he understood it and would add jokes or stories to our conversation; my dad and I were laughing the entire trip. We stopped along the way to Signaghi for roadside sheshuli and homemade bread and cheese. Levan and Mamouka knew the merchants and we were given private tastings of the homemade sauces, wine, cognac and cha cha. This made the tour so much more personal, as we really got to experience Georgian hospitality. We felt like we spent the whole day with lifelong friends. I can not recommend this tour enough.
Great trip. Fantastic guide
, Sep 2019
We had never been on a private tour before and this was our first full day in Georgia so we were a little bit apprehensive. Our guide Niniko, and her driver picked us up at the hotel and immediately put us at our ease. By the time we left Tbilisi we were chatting like old friends. Niniko talked knowledgeably about the various amazing sites we visited and interlaced the chat with insights into Georgian culture, history, and society. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know both Niniko and Kakheti.
Great way to get to know Georgia
, Aug 2019
We had a great experience with this private tour. Renting a car and driving yourself is really not worth the trouble. The roads are non-existent for nearly half of the drive so you better have a local with you. Our guide was a great driver and we found it so great to get to know a local on the way, he was friendly, talkative and genuine. We recommend this trip.
Amazing private day tour to Kakheti region:-)
, May 2019
Thanks for an unforgettable private day trip! The experience of the region, sights and nature was beyond expectations. A special thank you to our private driver and guide George, his knowledge, kindness and flexibility made him the perfect guide for us on this trip. We greatly appreciated that Viator provides drivers & guides with good cars and a good safety attitude. Sincerely, Liv and May
A Fantastic Visit into Georgian History
, Mar 2019
We have just completed the tour to David Garedji, organised by Real Georgia Tours. We would highly recommend this tour to a fascinating location. Our guide Irakly was knowledgeable and very friendly and added to the experience. His car was comfortable and he took the time to drive off road to show us some interesting geological features. Hiking to the monks caves is a must for anyone of reasonable fitness. We are in our sixties and managed it though it is tiring. FIVE STARS

Breathtaking experience! the coutryside is wonderful, so is the site. We stopped on the way in a little village, copy of 60's commune without the drugs. An old lady showed us how she makes her bread. Just wonderful. We finished with a very interesting wine tasting session with little nibbles. Excellent

This tour was amazing. Not only the car was comfortable and the tour was personalized, we really got to know the real Georgia. The tour guide was a lot of knowledge in regards to current and historical issues of the region. In addition, we were informed about symbolism and legends.

This was the best tour I did while spending a week in Georgia and Armenia. I had had the same tour guide two days prior for the Tbilisi walking tour, so it was great to see him again. We were able to continue our discussions about Georgian history and politics. For me the highlight was the David Gareji caves and the trip to them. This area of Georgia has beautiful rolling green hills with no one there except a few sheep herders. At the site you travel up behind the ridge where the monastery is, get to see into Azerbaijan, and look around in the rooms carved into the hillside. If we had only done this part of the tour I would have been very satisfied. The rest of the trip, with visiting Bodbe and sampling local foods, was decent.

Even though I did this tour in November, certainly not high season, it was a great experience. My guide Levan was great and provided fantastic insights into Georgian culture and way of life. The stop in Signagi was nice, although in off season there really isn't much there. The visit to the David Gareji caves was great though - especially being able to climb up to the Azerbaijanian border with the most amazing view over the two countries. Its a steep hike - but very much worth it!

Highly recommended! Our tour guide George, from Georgia, gave us an awesome tour. He shared a lot of facts and interesting stories of his country and the places we visited. The tour’s timing was excellent, it felt like every place was solely booked just for us. Comfortable car and very good driver!
