Discover Georgia

Situated at the important crossroads where Europe meets Asia, Georgia has a unique and ancient cultural heritage, and is famed for its traditions of hospitality and cuisine. From fantastically beautiful towns of Svaneti and Kazbegi in the Caucasus Mountains to Batumi, a semitropical town on the Black Sea coastline, Georgia abounds in natural variety.  Georgia is also known as the cradle of wine. This fact is known by 8000 years old archeological findings of grape pips inside antique clay pots. And, to add to this, it is also the land of the first human beings in Europe (Homo Georgicus). Join this tour to visit East and South of Georgia for unforgettable memories…
