Zurab G.

Tbilisi, Georgia

I am 31, and, since 2010, I have been an a professional tour guide of Tbilisi and all country Georgia.

I am specialized in creating and leading tours which are out of the ordinary; "unique peaces" shaped to your wishes, needs and time factor. I like my job tremendously!

On "toursbylocals website" you will find me and my private tours listed for all regions in country Georgia and specific in field of arts history . So if you are planning to visit these country, I can be your personal guide in Capital Tbilisi and in all of the country Georgia. This is a way to help me to transfer you all my knowledge about culture and history of the places we visit and, on the other side, a way for you to save MONEY.

Mtskheta, Uplistikhe, Vardzia, Kazbegi, Wine regions, Svaneti and Tbilisi with old town's districts and all this sites, cities, regions and museums have no secrets for me. This is my LAND and I am the face, voice and body of it! This is what stimulates me to do my job with competence, passion and sense of responsibility.

So just formulate your request and I will reply you promptly.

What about my background? I am graduated in Culture with a specialization about History of Art and M. A. in Cultural management(developing cultural organizations). Since I was at university my true passion for exploring and my great interests in fine arts and archaeology showed up. I spent many years travelling and working as tour guide, arts manager in different organizations. This experience gave me the opportunity to understand people lifestyles and to improve the foreign languages.

When I travel abroad I don't want to be just a spectator standing by a balcony. I want to interact with the locals. I can't wait to welcome you, to show you my COUNTRY through my eyes and to make you live not a simple tour but a real TRAVEL EXPERIENCE.
Do not hesitate a minute longer, follow me and have fun!

A Recent Review of this guide

Zurab specially arranged this tour for me at my request. We visited Martvili Canyon and monastery and the Tskaltubo caves. The canyon and the caves are both very beautiful places. Zurab and his driver-friend were both very friendly and helpful and I loved my experience of the tour. Zurab also provided some really interesting information about the church in Martvili monastery. Zurab is a wonderful guide. I also took a tour of Tbilisi with him and enjoyed it very much.
