    Good fun

    The guide George was great. He had so much knowledge and was really friendly. The last vineyard was the best, most relaxed and took more time.

    We had an amazing experience with Keti, she is very friendly and we learnt a lot from her about local traditions and history, it was super interesting. We had to opportunity to visit Sighnaghi and several wineries, and to try many good wines too.

    Had a wonderful wine tasting tour with Gamarjoba tours. It was a beautiful experience and had a nice time with the group too.The tour guide Mr luca was very informative and was very kind. Ms Baya was continuously in touch with us in Whatsapp and very helpful.During the tour there was a small glitch with our minibus and it broke down and Mr luca & Ms Baya were fast enough to arrange a different vehicle and manage things quickly.And the icing on the cake was that once we reached back from the tour to the drop off point, full team of the gamarjoba tours including the owner Mr Sasha were there to say their apologies to all of us for the vehicle breakdown and as a sweet gesture they took everyone for a boat trip which was quite memorable.So i would definitely recommend them for tours in Georgia. The no 1 tour operators i must say. Thanks for all the memories. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Our guide, Keti, was wonderful. She spoke about history,agriculture, politics, St Nino, the Georgian way of life and of course wine growing history and winemaking techniques.
    It was a long day but well worth it.

    Each of the three wineries were different and we learned and tasted many wines and history of Georgian wine making. Walking around Sighnaghi was very special and we had lunch on a hotel balcony overlooking the plateau and the distant mountains.

    The visit to the monastery and the tomb of St Nino was a very spiritual experience.
    Keti was outstanding in her knowledge and very clear explanations. We could ask her anything about life in Georgia. We would highly recommend.

    I’ve been fortunate to have been on many tours in my life and I can honestly say that today’s tour was amazing and one of the best I’ve ever been on!
    Our day began meeting a representative of the tour company, a young woman named Baya at 8:45am, who was cheerful and bubbly and extremely knowledgeable.
    We then met our tour guide Beka who was nothing less than sensational!
    BEKA made the day amazing!
    He was not only friendly but exceptionally knowledgeable and well read. He was helpful, funny and extremely attentive to every individual on the trip. The places we visited today were very interesting but as everyone knows without a great guide to guide you and inform you without boring you is the key…..congratulations Beka you did a wonderful job of keeping us all interested and informed in the perfect way!
    During the afternoon, while we were on the tour, Baya took time out of her day to call us and to check up on us and make sure all was going perfectly! So nice!
    I would highly recommend this tour to anyone but you have to request Beka as your guide!

    We had George as our tour guide! He was brilliant with knowledge by answering our need-to-knows. We had a set itinerary. The main highlights were not only the wine tasting but the vast sceneries of the wonderful places the tour had offered! Overall for the price you pay it’s so worth it and fun!

    Ich habe diese Tour Mitte August gemacht und kann sie grundsätzlich nur empfehlen. Die Gruppengröße war sehr überschaubar. Vor allem unser Guide Beka konnte mit seinem Wissen über Georgien, vor allem geschichtlichen, ökonomischen sowie demographischen, überzeugen und uns etliche Frage auf den Busfahrten zwischen den Stopps beantworten. Man bekommt einen sehr guten Überblick über die Weinregion, vor allem die Anreise zu einzelnen Weinkeller kann ich mir öffentlich nur sehr schwer vorstellen, weil sie doch teilweise abseits gelegen sind.

    We participated in the full day wine tour with a guide named Beka. Beka is a treasure trove of information about his native Georgia. From a deep understanding of the history and modern day life we discovered Georgian life and feel so fortunate to have met him.
    The tour itself was great. The wineries visited gave us an appreciation of the fine wines from Georgia.
    I highly recommend taking this tour

    I thoroughly enjoyed this tour – particularly our guide George, who was an absolute professional. I usually don’t like tours with more than a dozen people but George managed the group perfectly and made sure we kept on schedule without ever feeling rushed. His knowledge of Georgian history and wine provided the perfect context for our visits to the three wineries and other stops. I only have one complaint – the restaurant we ate at for lunch in Signagi – Restaurant Natakhtari – was the only bad meal I had during my entire stay in Georgia. All of the meat was cooked until it was inedible. This, of course, isn’t the fault of George, so I’m keeping it at five stars, but I hope they consider other eating options in charming Signagi.

    It was an amazing tour to Khahetia wine region. Lovely Baya supported us via whatsapp throughout booking process and afterwards. George (Georgii) did a marvelous job translatining to my family in Russian, pretty much doing double work and still being positive, knowledgeable and professional all the way. We will be back and would recommend anyone interested in exploring Georgia to choose Gamatjoba Tours as a benchmark of local guided tours.

    This was the third tour we did with Gamarojoba. It was interesting one not the best one though.George our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and we learnt a lot about the art of Georgian traditional wine making in clay pots. Yet the tour itself could be improved a bit.

    We visited three wineries in total. The first stop was at the KTV winery. Not impressive. The wine tour at this factory was very rushed and red wines are served cold that you don’t even taste the bouquet of aromas that the wine has to offer. The number 35 semi sweet red wine that we tasted here was very expensive at this winery (70 lari) where you can buy the same bottle at the very last winery on the programme for 30 lari. Perhaps KTV could be swopped for something else.

    The last full day of our holiday in Georgia was well spent on a day trip to the Kakheti region, led by Beka. He, as others have written, has a wealth of knowledge about his country and made our journey between the wine stops interesting, informative and entertaining. A great asset to Gamarjoba!
    Information from the company prior to the trip was communicated quickly and efficiently, and they were equally effective when we needed to change our plans at the last minute.
    Had initially favoured a trip provided by a different tour company, but so glad we changed to Gamarjoba.

    This was long day but a really enjoyable one. If you’re going for a comprehensive wine experience I probably would recommend you stay in the area and do smaller trips.
    There’s a fair bit of travel and really only 2 wineries of real interest but George was an excellent and extremely knowledgeable guide and I learnt a great deal about Georgias history in addition to wine making.
    I’d particularly like to mention that our driver was excellent. I was put off another tour because of a negative comment about the driver. Ours was brilliant.

    We have booked the 1-day tour from Tiflis into the Kaukasus to visit Matsminda, Katzbek monastry and the Russian-Georgian friendship monument. Our guide was George and he did a fantastic job to explain everything to us. His English was very good, too. We really enjoyed the tour and we will book a Tripadvisor tour again when we are back in Georgia.

    A very enjoyable day with an excellent guide, Belarus,, who went well above and beyond his work to ensure I caught my overnight train to Yerevan, personally taking me to the train station, using his metro card to get me though the barrier, carrying some of my luggage, and getting me to the right platform. We made it!

    I have been on many tours in different countries. Beka was unique in getting each of us to introduce ourselves on the bus in the morning. That helped break the ice, and made us gel more easily as a group for the remainder of the day. Beka provided lots of useful information throughout the day, and was very open to questions. He was always concerned about our comfort.

    The tour itself was fascinating, with plenty of opportunities to sample various Georgian wines, and to learn about how wines in Georgia are produced.

    I would recommend this tour without hesitation, and Beka as an outstanding guide.

    Our guide, Beka, made the trip both funny and interesting as he shared both historical, cultural and political facts about Georgia and its neighbouring countries, as well as telling some funny jokes along the way.

    The first winery we visited was disappointing because the visit simply involved some quick tasting of wines in a strange order (dry red after sweet red, white after red, all served cold) and the wine was anyway not made in the traditional Georgian way. The two latter wineries were however very interesting, and as we were there during grape harvesting season we even got to see part of the production and taste fresh grapes from the vines.

    In Sighnaghi, you can go with the guide to climb the wall from which you can view the Caucasus mountains, or you can go on your own and explore more of the city. (Going to the wall takes all of the allotted time)

    Bringing cash is a must because none of the places (bakery for traditional bread, restaurant, wineries) accept card payments, and I recommend not missing out on any of these things.

    My husband and I enjoyed a wine tour in Georgia’s Kakheti wine region.

    The tour manager Baya was really friendly and helpful. She kept in contact with us during the tour and answered any questions we had.

    Our tour guide Katy was amazing! Such a fun, bubbly personality. She was so knowledgeable and we really gained insight into Georgian culture and past. In my opinion Katy made the tour really great.

    Our driver was also good and the vehicle was clean and comfortable.

    I would definitely recommend Gamarjorba Georgia Tours to anyone wanting to tour Georgia, especially if you are lucky enough to get Katy as your tour guide.

    We had a fantastic day with our guide Luca. The wines were all lovely – you pay extra for wine tastings after the first stop, but it’s very reasonable – we especially liked the stop at a local house in Sighnaghi to try homemade wine, chacha and brandy!

    Lunch was a set menu including wine for 30GEL and was delicious- you also stop at a bakery mid morning to see bread being made; there is nothing better than Georgian bread hot from the oven!

    It was a long day, so make sure you take some water, but we would not hesitate to recommend it – one of the best tours we had. Gaumarjos!

    Had this trip yesterday and enjoyed it a lot. The distances are not that long so there isn’t too much driving. All wineries were different, I liked the Kindzmarauli one (the last one) best but all wineries selected very good wines for us to try. First wine tasting is included in the trip, for the second and third you have to pay a little extra (10 + 8 lari). When given the choice between tasting wines in second or third winery or both I really suggest trying both because they are different but both very delicious. There is also beautiful scenery.
    Our guide Ekaterina was a well fit for this trip. She was very chill and calm but also in a very good mood and gave us enough but not too much information letting us enjoy our wine buzz.

    I must say that I’m not such a big fan of wine, but when you’re in Georgia, you have to try wine, right? This tour was amazing, we learnt so much about wine and the process of making it, specially about the traditional georgian way in qvevries. Amazing trip with a lot of wine tasting 🙂 Even before noon, hahaha. The guide was great, full of knowledge about everything, you gonna learn a lot. After this tour I must say I’m more into wine than before 😀

    Everything was my the schedule, had time for everything and saw a lot of the Kahketi region. A must do for every wine lover, and also for the ones who are more into beer (like me hahaha). Amazing time, would recommend Gamarjoba to everybody.

    We were in Georgia last week and had a fantastic experience thanks to Gamarjoba Travels. We chose this tour to learn about Wine tasting and the entire process of making it. Our tour guide George is a subject matter expert on anything thats Georgian.

    Right from the beginning , he made sure that we were well entertained. He briefed us on Georgian culture, history , wine tasting traditions etc during the commute.Really helped us understand how beautiful Georgia really is. Thank you so much for the amazing day George! Will be in our memories always.

    We also would like to thank Baya who from the beginning had helped us schedule and plan for the trip since we were in Georgia only for three days.

    Экскурсию забронировали накануне, очень вежливые менеджеры. Хорошая организация экскурсии, очень грамотно продуманный маршрут. Поездка получилась насыщенной, но не утомительной. Отличный гид Георгий, рассказывал интересно, весело, не давал скучать, не перегружал информацией. Распробовали грузинское вино, пообедали в городе любви, побывали в монастыре Святой Нино и это малая часть программы. С собой привезли много вина и хорошее настроение. Спасибо!

    This was a terrific tour. Our guide, George, was very knowledgeable, and we really got to see a lot. We saw two very different wineries, and tasted wine in both, and also saw how traditional Georgian wines are produced. We got to explore a beautiful old town, bake Georgian bread and we had a lovely lunch at a traditional Georgian restaurant. I highly recommend this tour. One caveat, though — this is a long day. Many “all-day” trips end by 4:00 or 5:00; we left at 9:00 AM and did not return to Tbilisi until 9:00 at night. It’s definitely worth it, but plan accordingly

    My husband and I were very pleased with our private tour, led by Katerina, and the tour driver. Katerina was very enthusiastic and friendly, and met us at our hotel right on time in the morning. Over the course of the day we participated in tours and wine tasting at three different wineries, learned how shoti bread is made (and got to try our hand at shaping and baking it), had lunch at a tasty cafe on a nice terrace in Signani, and stopped at Bodbe monastery.

    The stops and tours on the trip were great, but equally fun and interesting was the chance to get to know Katerina and our driver, Kia, and better understand Georgian life and culture by talking with them. This tour made our trip to Georgia all the more lively and meaningful, and I highly recommend it if you are looking to get outside the tourist part of Tbilisi.

    Even a traffic jam on the way back to Tbilisi at night was made pleasant thanks to Katerina sharing her knowledge of and enthusiasm for both Georgian and American music. Very cool trip!!

    We are a group of six travellers from Slovenia who visited Georgia in September 2019; all our tours were arranged with Gamarjoba team. We spent several days with our guides Katie and David. Katie did Tbilisi based tours with us and her positive attitude and great knowledge of local life and history made every one of them special. Wine tour with extraordinary food at a local farmhouse stands out. Seeing different wine production methods and tasting the best food in Georgia: a must-do! David was with us in Ushguli, extraordinary place with wild nature and tough life. His friendly smile and good mood made the trip extra special even though we were not lucky with the weather.
    We did not cross out Georgia from our travel list, we will be back there again some time

    Our guide Giorgi P and our driver Misha were truly lovely guys, and we had a great time exploring the Kazbegi region with them. I saw a book of Soviet bus stations that kinda thrilled me, so we even took a moment to stop at one of those as well. Giorgi knows his stuff, loves talking about Georgia and is a great person overall to spend time with. (He also made a great suggestion of doing the tour backwards so as to avoid the crowds who do the stops in the other order – by the time of the last stop at Ananuri, we had the place to ourselves.) On the way back, Misha drove through the soviet district and past Lake Tbilisi as a final bonus before dropping us at the hotel. We ate amazing food at Misha’s suggestion and spent much of the day laughing and even singing along to Bohemian Rhapsody in the car. So all in all it was a great time and if you can get these two guys as your guide team, definitely do it!

    So I always knew when planning the trip to Georgia that I wanted to do a winery tour given the history and quality of Georgian wine making. The difficulty was always picking the right tour because, unsurprisingly, there are loads of options. Thankfully, having done a full day tour to Kazbegi and various other places a few days earlier with this tour company, the choice became very clear.

    As with the previous tour we did with them the experience from start to finish was flawless. The product manager, George, was in frequent contact, keeping me informed of any minor changes. The check-in staff at the office on the day of the tour were both helpful and super friendly – the perfect start to the day.

    Our tour guide, George (a different George I assume), was born and raised in the Kakheti region and has both an in depth knowledge and passion for wine making and the history of this, not only within Georgia but globally. He constantly invited questions but because his explanations were so detailed inevitably there weren’t any.

    During the tour three wineries are visited in addition to a bakery, a monastery and the lunch stop at Sighnaghi, the city of love. All three wineries are excellent. My only regret was that I was flying out the day after the tour with hand baggage only and therefore couldn’t buy numerous bottles to take with me.

    The bakery stop is a fun way for people to try their hand at baking the traditional Georgian bread. The monastery has a fascinating history and fantastic views across the valley. Finally the restaurant in Sighnaghi served up some of the best food I have ever tasted, and at great prices. Pretty much the whole mini-bus was in a food coma after lunch but that’s not exactly a bad thing when on holidays.

    Ultimately it’s a long day, between 12 – 13 hours typically, so you have to be prepared for that but the rewards are well worth it. Thoroughly recommended.

    This is actually my second proper review that I ever write about anything or anyone. We took the private program to Mtskheta (again) as it’s one of my favourite place, got to visit the wine factory and tasted the wine in Kakheti Wine Region and late lunch at one of the most beautiful little place, Sighnaghi. Love the architecture of all the places we have been and once again we were with one of the most energetic young man, Mr. Giorgi Khutsishivili who was still doing his job at very best. My 2 Thai friends as very happy with the program and everything that the tour company provided us. Definitely will see you again in December 2019 with more of our friends coming for ski. Keep it up

    We booked this trip to Kakheti, the Georgian wine region, the night before. We received a message on WhatsApp shortly afterwards confirming all of the details for the next day. It was easy to find the Gamarjoba tours office, and check-in was easy and pleasant, with an indoor space to escape from the cold as well as facilities. We departed for our tour on time, in a large bus to accommodate the many would-be wine tasters. Giorgi and Jacob, our managers, were extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and kept us entertained on the way to our first stop.

    Our first stop was KTW, a large winery making many different styles of wine and other spirits. The pours were generous and the winery representative very informative. We tried four different wines, brandy, and chacha, then got to see traditional bread making. Prices were very reasonable and we were very impressed by the quality of the products. We then went to see St Nino’s Monastery before lunch and a short walking tour of Sighnaghi, the Georgian city of love. After a leisurely and very delicious lunch we traveled to a second winery, where we learned more about the traditional Georgian wine making process and tried two types of Qvevri wine. Finally it was time to make the long trip back to Tbilisi.

    We were extremely satisfied with our tour. Giorgi was a very good tour guide, very knowledgeable, friendly, and approachable. We found that the wineries chosen gave us a wide view of the many types of wine and spirit making in Georgia. I would definitely recommend the trip to anyone looking for a hassle-free, educational, and very tasty tour of Kakheti.

    Tour exceeded expectations, with all items on itinerary covered during the day. Baya did a great job coordinating and communicating ahead of the tour so everything went smoothly. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Had a great lunch at restaurant with great view. Arrived back at Avlabari metro station a little after 9pm. What a great value tour that I highly recommend for wine enthusiasts.

    This was not just a tour, it was like an amazing experience with friends! Be prepared to have a lot of fun and get drunk if you want. Giorgi was a great guide who showed and explained us everything perfectly and at the same time created a very relaxed and funny atmosphere. I would take another tour with him anytime (or marry him in Sighnaghi). The organisation itself was very professional and kind!

    We gout the tour at 4th of November. Our tour guide Giorgi (who looks like young Stalin ) was wonderful. Honestly , I never prefer to join to a tour while traveling since I prefer to discover cities by my self and I don’t like to hear a lot of stories while walking . But our tour guide Giorgi was really friendly and his stories was not boring at all ☺️ and the tour it self was lovely we ended with a memorable day. Thank you to Gamarjobatours and wonder team ❤️ PS: we are impressed the driver didn’t drink even one glass of one since we had million glasses from beginning of the tour and he just had tea

    And my tour in kakheti made my tour really amazing.
    Many thanks to Giorgi he is our tour guide. he is friendly, amazing and nice guy. He always checks up on you if your okay and you enjoy the tour. Simply Amazing, It was not just a tour..its a bonding of people who just met and became friends. So far this is the best tour I ever had.
    I recommend Gamarjoba tours if you would like to travel to georgia and also Giorgi as the best tour guide.
    You will discover georgia in a different way. Two thumbs up

    When you come to Georgia, a country with such a famous wine-making tradition, this tour is a must. Our Georgian experience would not have been the same without it. The tour is well designed – we saw a lot of the country’s fascinating landscapes, took guided visits at three wine factories and tasted different marvelous wines. We had a splendid, relaxing afternoon and lunch in Sighnaghi, with a breath-taking wiew over the planes and mountains. Our guide Katie was absolutely lovely and delighted us with stories about the history, culture and the modern life of the Georgian people. We had a lot of fun and took some great memories from this tour.

    Done several tours in Georgia and Gamarjoba Tours is the best. This is my 2nd tour with the company and the guide’s name is also Giorgi. He’s informative, easy to talk to, and very funny. Someone made a comment that looks like someone and pulled a picture of young Stalin lol. Anyway the tour starts off with several wine and a brandy tasting at 10am (it’s noon somewhere in the world), then watch a women bake fresh bread and also get to taste it (yum!), walk around the monastery in Sighnaghi, and then lunch with an amazing view of the mountains. Unfortunately I didn’t stay on the tour for the last two wine tastings, because I’m staying in Sighnaghi for a couple of nights.

    This was a great tour! A long, full day that never got boring (except maybe the two hour drive back to Tbilisi..sleep). The guide, George, was absolutely first rate with intelligent and relevant dialog throughout the day. I rarely get attached to guides, but he was one I wish were my ongoing friend. There were three tasting stops. One early at a building full of steel storage/aging tanks. We tasted many varieties directly out of the tanks. Different. Shortly after we stopped at a roadside bakery to watch a lady bake traditional bread in a round oven where she slapped to dough on the side to cook. Then on to the resting place of St. Nino. I was not expecting her, but George provided good background, and the convent was beautiful and moving. Then on to nearby town of Sighnagi for lunch. We went first to the restaurant to order, and then toured around for an hour while lunch was prepared, and then back to eat. Nice little town to wander around, but if we could have eaten a little faster and moved on I would have preferred it. Then down a very winding road toward Kvareli. The tasting in the cave was a little weak…I think we had only 2 tastes. But then on to the Duruji Valley facility where we had a great tasting and tour, including the traditional in-ground clay vessels they still use. Fascinating. Contrary to another review, I never felt like it was a drunken bar crawl. Just the right mix of wine, culture, and history. Again, George made a great day!

    My husband and I recently took the wine tour with Georgi (young Stalin) as our guide. With the low cost of the tour, our expectations weren’t too high, but wow what a fun day. We had the opportunity to sample different varieties of Georgian wines and even some brandy at one of our stops. A highlight of the day was watching the traditional method of making bread in the Tone oven and eating it while still warm. Unlike many tourist lunch spots, the place we stopped to eat served up very delicious food and very inexpensive too. Special thank you to Georgi who was one of the most informative (and charismatic!) guides we have had this year.

    It’s never easy being a solo female traveller….not once did I feel uncomfortable. Our guides Guga and Ekaterina really made sure that we were well taken care of and were able to read our moods very well. The driver had the patience of a Saint too! I was lucky enough to be in a group of people who were all seasoned travellers and of a similar outlook so it was fab! Our guides understood when we needed more time at a particular place (in our case a leisurely lunch) and tailored the experience accordingly which is awesome. When I arrived at the office it was reassuring to see other travellers who also were independent types. It makes a huge difference to your experience. This is not another “commercial tour” our guides were extremely knowledgeable and really loved their jobs and their country which makes a huge difference. Just book it and go 🙂

    I’m glad I chose to explore the wine region with your company. It was my first day and I didn’t know what to expect and the tour guide Giorgi (young Stalin) had so many stories to narrate and made the tour even more entertaining. He has a jovial personality and made sure he answered all our questions.
    As we were headed towards our first stop Kakheti wine region , there was a light snowfall and it just elevated my mood.
    All three wineries,the Bodbe Monastery and the shop where we saw how the bread is made, I loved it all.
    We had a cozy lunch break where we indulged in authentic Georgian food and got to know more about the culture.
    I would definitely recommend others who are visiting this beautiful country.

    Great tour with a great guide – many thanks, Giorgi – young Stalin!
    The tour was well-organized – we had a lot of time for ourselves and didn’t feel rushed, which is a nice contrast to my previous experiences. As expected, the wines, chacha and food were very tasty. However, what I appreciated most about the tour is that it wasn’t only about wine – we visited some beautiful Kakheti areas like Bodbe and Sighnaghi (too bad it was so foggy!), and Giorgi made sure to captivate us with local history, traditions and fun facts about the contemporary reality in Georgia. Even in between the winery stops he kept us entertained with jokes about Armenian coffee and Kim Kardashian. It is visible that being a guide is not only a job for him – his fondness and passion for the culture and history of his country were visible at all times, which was more than enough to create a welcoming atmosphere for the visitors.
    Within 7 days spent in Georgia I tried tours with 2 other companies and the ones organized by Gamarjoba Georgia Tours were by far the best – I can definitely recommend them!

    This was one of the best wine tours we’ve done to date. From the booking process, the welcoming at their office and then the tour.
    As soon as we got on the bus Giorgi also known as the “Young Stalin” made sure there was not one dull moment. We were continuously fed information and interesting facts with the occasional joke here and there to keep us on our feet. We had a great group and everyone instantly connected after the first sip of wine. The wine farms were welcoming and even the lady baking the bread had a laugh with us….or maybe it was at us‍♂️
    The church stop was truly breathtaking and had amazing views where anyone’s inner photographer begged to climb out and take a few snaps.
    We had good wine and great food at the restaurant while taking in some beautiful scenery of the mountains topped with snow and all of this before 2PM, let’s just say the tour continued and we were brought safely back to Avlabari metro station round about 9pm… I think.
    Let’s just say take the tour and make memories.
    The tour company Checked in with us twice throughout the day to make sure the standards were kept which it obviously was.
    Thank you for a great trip Young Stalin and the WINEEEEEEE GROUP of the YEAR!!

    The best tours me and my family ever had. From the moment we met David(our guide from Gamarjoba), we had no reasons to “whine” about anything..but just “wine..wine and more wine…”. David was just amazing in the way he conducted the tour.. it started on-time..every stop was so meticulously planned..he ensured all had ample time for everything and yet no delays nowhere..The mood in our mini-wan was so upbeat and yes..he did showcase his dancing skills as well .. :)..It was very entertaining, very professional. All respect for David who is very passionate about Georgia, about his job and someone whom you would love to be with in such tours…David took us to a Georgian family for our lunch and to say “best food we ever had” is an understatement. Their hospitality, food, everything was so memorable..

    A word about Gamarjoba – the tour company…Hats off guys..from check-in till end of tour..you were with us with constant checks on our well being. Special mention to Ms.Sophie for following up with us for any inconveniences faced to ensure that we enjoy our time in Georgia..

    We would love to be back soon to Georgia…Just to be part of this tour again..

    After a lot of research we chose Gamarjoba Georgia Tours and I must say it is the safest, affordable and a best tour company in Georgia.

    I was with my wife and the experience was awesome.

    Mr. George A.K.A the young stallion was our guide who could speak very good English and I must say he is full of energy and has great knowledge.

    Mr. George took us to the places and explained us in detail the history of each place we visited – KTW, BADIAURI, BODBE MONASTERY, SIGHNAGHI & KVARELI as planned in the package without any rush, he gave us enough time to take pictures and also helped us to take some pictures.

    I would like to thank Gamarjoba Georgia Tours and especially the young stallion Mr. George for giving us the best experience of our life.

    If you need a One stop, affordable, reliable, safest & best tour solution Gamarjoba Georgia Tours is your place to call and I’d suggest choose Mr. George the young stallion who would make ur tour a memorable one.
