George J.

Tbilisi, Georgia

Hi! My name is George. I am a driver-guide in Georgia.

Member of the Georgian Guides Association.
I was lucky that I found my passion early in life. My first connection with tourists was in my village Dmanisi. Dmanisi is the place where archeologists found the oldest human skull in Europe, they call us Georgians the First Europeans because of that. My grandparents are living in Dmanisi and I was spending there most of my summer holidays since my early childhood. As I was speaking two foreign languages Russian and English from a very young age also I was kind of local, they offered me to become a local guide there. But before that, they offered me to work together with the archeologists so I would get a deeper knowledge of all the secrets of that unique place. While working there I was also offering tourists tours around Dmanisi. I was always excited to express my knowledge of that place and my English speaking skills to them. So right after I finished school I started studying tourism management as I always wanted to be professional in everything I do, it took me several years to get confidence in my skills and proper knowledge of how to be a professional tour guide.
Now I am already certified tour guide, with experience of more than six years. I am making tours in the whole territory of Georgia, with my Toyota Prius.
My number one priority is flexibility. I am always flexible in adjusting tour plans to my tourist's needs. As the interests of every tourist are always different. My job is to make adjustments in plans and timing using my experience, so I make sure that my tourists always have positive, comfortable, interesting, memorable, satisfying and most importantly enjoyable tours.
So welcome to Georgia. Let me share with you the ambiance, unique character, and nature of my beautiful country, that has one of the oldest histories in the world.

A Recent Review of this guide

I had such a great time with George and learned an immense amount about beautiful Tbilisi! George is clearly very passionate in his love of his city, and I genuinely enjoyed spending the day with him. He was incredibly kind and helpful with everything imaginable - from restaurant recommendations, itinerary adjustments, even lending me one of his jackets due to the cold. All of the sites were wonderful, and George has the itinerary set up very nicely. I would highly recommend George's tour if in Tbilisi!!
