A Recent Review of this tour

We thoroughly enjoyed our week with Koba, it was a highlight of our time in Georgia. He was very personable, and was very happy to try to accommodate any requests we had. Koba has an in-depth knowledge of Georgian heritage and history, and was also a very capable wilderness guide. We felt like we were in excellent hands the entire time - his vehicle was well maintained and he had a good knowledge of the road. We were constantly impressed with Koba's boundless energy and enthusiasm.
