Jvari Monastery- VI century church and monastery, located in the east of Mtskheta, at the mouth of the river Mtkvari and Aragvi, on the rocky mountain peak. Jvari Monastery is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Here there is kept the Robe of Jesus Christ which had been brought from Jerusalem in I c. A true architectural masterpiece of the Early Middle Ages. Built on a hilltop, the views it affords of Mtskheta and the Aragvi and Mtkvari Rivers are breathtaking and great for selfies! You will drive north towards the Northern Caucasus along the well-known Georgian Military Road The first stop will be at the Ananuri complex, a former residence of Argveti Dukes.

Continue our incredible tour and now visit the Gudauri Friendship monument, also known as Gudauri Panorama- located 120 KM from Tbilisi, on the Georgian Military Highway connecting to Russia. The monument is very vivid and colorful, however, most of its beauty is thanks to the location.

Our last stop and the main attraction of the tour is Kazbegi (Stepantsminda) and its amazing Mount Kazbegi, where the Gergeti Trinity Church is built - located at an altitude of 2170 m.

This was my one of the excellent tour in life. This was my second tour and I loved it. Entire trip Was amazing and tour guide Emilia was very good. She was very friendly, knowledgeable and cool. This was really a good experience of this trip with her and I got good knowledge of places visited. No doubt this company has good and well trained staff who knows how to provide a good tour to people and ensure they like country.

We took a day trip to Kazbegi and a winery tour the next day. I asked a Japanese-speaking person to be a tour guide, and I was given a detailed explanation of some of the churches I visited, which deepened my understanding of Georgia. And the wonderful scenery at Kazbegi is still vivid in my mind as something I will never forget. I would like to stay here again.

Kaoru and I went on two tours with Acha the driver and Gala the guide, in a Toyota Prius. Wow we had a wonderful time, from start to finish Gala was giving us all sorts of information about the tour and Georgia in general. Ache's driving was great, we live in Tokyo where we go everywhere by train, but we could relax with Acha at the wheel. We went to a well know restaurant, but the music was too loud, so Gel and Acha suggested a more Georgian alternative where we could enjoy real Georgian cuisine and more Georgian history. We have been on a lot of tours in many different countries, our tours with Gala and Acha were by far the best. We are already planning our next trip to Georgia, Sakura Travel Agency is our only option.
