Tbilisi the capital of Georgia

Despite evidence of settlement in the area stretching back to the 4th century BC, Georgians prefer the legend that King Vakhtang Gorgasali of Kartli founded Tbilisi in the 5th century. The story runs that when the king was hunting, a pheasant fell into a hot sulphur spring and was conveniently cooked for dinner. Another version has it that a wounded deer fell into the hot sulphur spring and was miraculously healed. Either way, Tbilisi takes its name from the Georgian tbili (warm), and there seems little doubt that the magnificent hot springs, which still lure visitors today, attracted the king to the spot.
In fact Gorgasali won the town back from the Persians, who had invaded in 368, and moved his capital here from Mtskheta in the late 5th century. His son King Dachi completed its construction after his father's death.

A Recent Review of this tour

Levani is a great tour guide. He is very friendly and knowledgeable about Tbilisi. I had a great time and learned quite a bit about the city and the country. Levani plots a great route and gives you the option of a level of walking that is comfortable for you. I recommend walking as much as possible, but beware that there are some steep hills and streets to conquer.
