The food was great and our guide, George, was fantastic. I would recommend this tour very highly. No one could finish this tour and still be hungry; there were loads of wonderful dishes to try.

Luka was our tour guide. He was very professional and friendly. We learned lots about Georgia and it’s wonderful food. It was nice to try the Cha Cha instead of wine. I would suggest you go hungry as we had so much food to take home with us! We would even like to tour again on our next visit to Tblisi.

Tbilisi Old Town Walking Tour including Cable Car, Wine Tasting and Old Bakery
We had the best experience on this walking tour: the route was amazing and gave a great overview of Tbilisi and George (our tour guide) was beyond exceptional. We saw all of the main attractions such as Mother of Georgia monument, sulfur baths, cute streets of Old Tbilisi and so much more. Wine tasting was great! And we enjoyed bread as well. George made sure we had time to rest if we needed a break, but he was also managing our time on the tour very well. One thing I would suggest while taking this walking tour around Tbilisi is to make sure you’re wearing an appropriate attire for the churches (skirts and headscarves for women, long pants for men). We saw several old churches on this walking tour, so better be prepared for that. Overall, it was by far my favorite walking tour and it made our time in Tbilisi much more meaningful. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

If you a person interested in historical heritage, culture and customs this excursion program definitely for you! During this sightseeing tour I was ovserving not only numerous historical buildings and monuments but also breathtaking panoramic view of Tbilisi. In addition, you can visit the ethnografic museum, the churches and various local shops with handicraft products, vine, honey and even rugs. So, you are welcome !

Tbilisi city Full day Private tour
This was one amazing drive plus walk through of the breathtakingly beautiful Tbilisi city. Our charming, energetic and knowledgeable guide Meri made it a memorable day for us. She regaled us with stories about Tbilisi and went beyond her brief to ensure a truly wonderful experience. The super punctual car driver would be waiting for us at the precise pickup points so we didn't waste even a moment.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Tbilisi’s Old Town can be tricky for wheelchair users, though accessible tours are increasingly available.

  • Tours normally include entrance to paid attractions; otherwise, you can book admission to some sights in advance.

  • You’ll usually need to cover your shoulders when visiting religious sites—pop a shawl in your bag before heading out to sightsee.

How to Get There

Tbilisi’s Old Town straddles the Kura River before climbing up toward the Narikala Fortress and Kartlis Deda monument. As the district is compact enough to navigate on foot, most city tours depart from a central meeting point. If you’re getting there from farther away, drive or take advantage of Georgia’s comprehensive—if a little slow in places—public transit system.

Show all


When to Get There

For fewer crowds and milder temperatures, go in early autumn or late spring, when the weather is ideal for walking. On Georgian Independence Day (May 26), you’ll find a great deal to see and do across Tbilisi’s old and new districts. Easter is a lively time of year within Orthodox communities.

A City on the Crossroads

As you stroll through Tbilisi, you’ll notice all sorts of architectural and cultural influences and styles, from Islamic to Stalinist, medieval to modern. The city’s location on the geographical crossroads between Asia and Europe means it’s been a site of trade and invasion for centuries. Learn more about Tbilisi’s unique past at the Tbilisi History Museum, or widen your perspective of Georgian culture at the Open Air Museum of Ethnography.
