Get to know the person behind the tour

Ia M.

Tbilisi, Georgia

Hello! My name is Ia. Guiding for me is not just a job but also a passion.

It has given me an opportunity to find out so much more about my own country and fall in love with it more and more, meet new people, learn about completely different cultures and grow as a person. Since a tradition of hospitality has been always a very important part of our culture, I am not an exception. Like every Georgian, I feel a responsibility as a host to let my guests experience true Georgian hospitality.

Myself, I love traveling and with this job it has become my lifestyle. Knowing every small corner of my country and still discovering new things makes this work so exciting for me.

Georgia is one of the three countries in the south Caucasus region. Located at the crossroads of Asia and Europe, it's possible to experience convergence of these two different cultures. Hidden away between Greater and lesser Caucasus Mountains with its fertile lands perfect for viticulture, full of natural or centuries old historical monuments. After numerous invasions and conquests, even after assimilating with different cultures, Georgia still has maintained its own identity and religion.

If you're searching for memorable and right amount of educational tours, delicious Georgian food and wine you're at the right place. I am quite flexible and can customize itinerary which will fit your interests, I like to take time and make something with good quality rather than being in a rush.

I hope I will have a chance to guide you in my beautiful country!

A Recent Review of this guide

I booked Ia not knowing how she would be, but with one concern and that is preparing a program that would suit my son, nine years old. It must have culture, culinary experience, entertainment for kids, extreme sports and above all a nice holiday. Ia did all that. We went to the cinema (hard to find a theater program, as they are all written in Georgina). We did rafting, paragliding, visit all the highlights of Georgia, … I'm Belgian, so she arranged a driver for our car into the city that speaks French! +
