Journey to Kakheti follows a fascinating road through Gombori mountain pass (elevation of 1.639 m / 5,377 ft above sea level).

Keep on further with your Georgia tour program. A brief 50-minute drive will bring you to the town of Sighnaghi, also known as a “city of love” (mostly for the fact that one can register a marriage there 24/7). Previously a royal residence, this small Kakhetian town is surrounded by an ancient city walls with watchtowers.

A brief tour of Sighnaghi will be followed by delicious late-lunch in the private house in the nearby village of Nukriani. The family here is making their living by producing felt and wool footwear. Have one for yourself, embroidered with your name on it (or anything else written).

This day of your Georgia tour is dedicated to its major city – Tbilisi. For many centuries of its existence this was a place where people of all faiths, cultural and national backgrounds used to live together, making it a contemporary metropolis filled with history and atmosphere of the rich and great past. Begin at the Metekhi church and King Vakhtang monument where you will listen to the Tbilisi founding legend, continue by cable car to ancient Narikala fortress, walk down to the “Legvtakhevi” (fig) gorge and Tbilisi waterfall, passing by the church and mosque.

It represents love, as well as the friendship between different nationalities).

Drive up the mountains to see one of the oldest ethnographic museum collections in Georgia. Visit a local family producing cheese and honey. Lunch.

Rope bridge in Machakhela Adjara Georgia

In the morning depart Batumi towards Guria region of the country. For more than a century this place was famous for its tea plantations. During Soviet times Georgian tea was one of the major products Guria was busy with. Local climate and soil quality made it possible to grow a very high quality tea. After the collapse of the Soviet empire tea production, along with many other economic spheres experienced a drastic fall, to complete abandonment of the fields.

In recent years local people started to bring back the tradition of tea making. And now you have a chance not just to see how tea is being grown, but to actually harvest tea leaves, and take part in the whole process of domestic real tea making in of the local tea farms. All of this will be of course supplemented with organic farm-to-table lunch, made of locally produced and grown products.

Drive to the nearby local guesthouse for overnight.
