review 11 Oct 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Stunning scenery in the Svaneti Region especially Ushguli

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

If you are arriving early morning as we did, be prepared that you will not be able to go to your hotel until later in the day e.g. to get changed and freshen up. It's off the plane and straight into the city tour.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We used lots of local guides so that must have benefited the local economy.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Fantastic experience, we loved it all.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Svaneti - walking to the Shkhara glacier, enjoying the beautiful views, pathside gentians and butterflies. Spending time getting to know Tbilisi. Visiting the Stalin Museum. Hearing the beautiful singing in the churches we visited.Sampling Georgian cuisine.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Vegetarians and vegans will have no problems finding acceptable, delicious food. Be prepared for some very bumpy roads!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We hope so, we spent money in restaurants and on locally produced souvenirs. We did a bit of litter picking (plastic bottles) in Ushguli (this may become an increasing problem if tourist numbers continue to rise).

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very good indeed. We had an excellent guide who was most helpful, and a good safe driver well able to cope with the eccentricities of Georgian traffic! Altogether good value for money.

review 9 Jun 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Everything we saw and did was memorable, although visiting the Svaneti region was a highlight. We have come home with a real insight into the fascinating culture and history of the country.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Avoid the summer months; it can be uncomfortably hot. Embrace everything Georgia has to offer, and try to learn a few words and phrases before you go. You need to be reasonably physically fit to get the most out of the trip.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We felt that local people benefitted greatly in the Svaneti region in particular.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Probably the most enjoyable and interesting holiday we have ever had. We advise everyone to visit Georgia.

Dear Phil, Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback and we are delighted you had such an enjoyable time in Georgia. We are so glad that the nature of your trip and the style of guesthouses you chose trip meant benefits to the local people. Not every trip can have a big impact on environmental impacts and supporting conservation, although your few days spent at Vashlovani National Park, which is a protected area you helped support the continued protection of that area. Many thanks again for your feedback and we hope to welcome you on another trip soon!
