George K.

Tbilisi, Georgia

Good day I am George, (more known in local hiking society as a Capitan Gio, outside of country as a Saloseli Nasheed).

Professional certified safety hike guide from Georgia. I am in this business more than 10 years. I have done a lot of hike tours around Georgia and outside of a country.

In my opinion Georgia is very interesting country. Georgia have not only just a beautiful nature and big number of historical monuments, main wealth and promotion element of a country is ethnography, which make my homeland very interesting and attractive for tourists and not only.

I like extreme type of sports. I am founder of Georgian National Rafting Federation, Georgian National Kayaking Federation, Georgian National Hiking Federation, Georgian National Rock Climbing Federation. I have big practice of organising and managing extreme type sport events include: hiking, hunting, rafting, kayaking, bungee jumping, paragliding, paraplaning, soft ball, mountain climbing, rock climbing, off road tours, parachuting. I am always trying to put elements of extreme in my tours, which make it more interesting. My main advantage is my practice and knowledge. I am an only person in Georgia who is certified by International Hiking Federation, American hiking society as a high class hiking safety guide.

My hobby is history and geology. I organised several archeological and geological expeditions in different parts of Georgia, found a big number of new interesting caves and historical artifacts. My tours are not standard, they are interesting because tourists can participate in local traditions and get much more good time. My slogan is "It is not enough just to see, you should feel traditions if you want to know more"

A Recent Review of this guide

such a great tour. I was short on time so I needed a tour that I can book for the next 24 hours and "ToursByLocals" was the perfect option for me. the tour really sums up the nice attractions of Tbilisi in the best possible way. George was my guide and he was very friendly and informative with all his knowledge of the city and its stories (wouldn't be the same with out him). I definitely recommend this tour.
