Amazing Georgia, Wonderful Driver

Mariam had been very responsive, she responded to my messages very quickly and the booking process was done smoothly and perfectly. Information was clear and I didn't need to worry a thing. Driver Nodar was extremely sweet and caring throughout the 7-day trip. He was a wonderful and experienced driver and drove safely. Even though he couldn't speak English and I don't speak Russian, things just worked out perfectly and we were able to communicate somehow :)

What could our local partner based in Georgia improve on?

I didn't expect my hiking guide (on Sep 13, hiking in Juta) was actually shared with other German hiking group. The German group took over the hiking guide and kept adding hiking routes. It was planned to be a 4-hour hike starting from 10 am but it turned out to be a 9-hour hike and I returned to Juta at 6:30pm. I had to follow the German Group as I couldn't go back without a guide. That was very bad experience as I didn't expect to hike that long and the German Group took control of the hiking routes. I didn't prepare enough water and even food. I would say that was quite irresponsible and I was disappointed. In the end, I did return to Juta by myself without a guide because the German group decided to reach the peak of Mt. Chaukhebiand I could not go further. One of the German woman, who didn't join the group to the peak and I returned to Juta without hiking guide and we got lost but luckily we made it back to the village in the end. I felt very sorry to the driver, Nodar, because he was waiting for me at the village and expecting to see me at 2pm. He was really worried and he could not reach the hiking guide by phone as there was no reception when we reached 3000 meters. So he was waiting me for nearly 5 hours.

What did you think about the guides or drivers on your trip?

Driver was extremely sweet and caring. I had great time with my driver. But the car tire went flat on the way to Ushguli. I lost half of the day and stuck in Mestia. Mariam responded very quickly and arranged another car to take me to Ushguli. However, it was already 1pm and took more than 2 hours to Ushguli one way, I had only 1 hour to explore Ushguli and didn't have enough time to reach the Glacier. That day was kind of wasted.

What advice would you give to other travellers planning a trip to Georgia?

- Spend more days hiking in different areas of Georgia - The lunch at a farmer's house in Kvareli was extremely nice, highly recommended. - Gergeti Trinity is stunnig, must go there and walk to the peak.

What was the most memorable part of your trip?

Definitely the hiking experience in Juta.
