I am a private guide/driver and I've been doing this since 2010. My guiding skills were sharpened throughout my past life. I was raised by those people who always enjoyed discussions about the history of Georgia and local traditions. This was a good push for me to entirely dive in this subject matter and gain much more knowledge about history of Georgia. Besides, I loved hiking in the mountains, especially during the long term visit to my grandparents' places, which lived in different highland regions of Georgia. As a teenager I joined traditional Folk dancing (became a first class national dancer) company and I was given a chance to interact with multiple national representatives during our performances abroad. In the 2005 I officially became a Military interpreter (After security clearance interview) for the peace keeping operation programs (NATO) and gained some land navigation and first aid skills. Even nowadays, I take a part in a short term training programs, which serves for me as reiteration of my past knowledge. Since 2010 I began the leading business which became my main work now. This work gives me the chance to use mine, already well aggravated skills in benefit of travelers in my country. Dear travelers, I would never address to you as clients, you'll be my guests and I promise that - In my tours you'll get more pleasure and satisfaction, than you expected! If the purpose of your visit to Georgia is - acquaintance with the History and traditions, and also day time hiking in the Caucasus, then you really need my assistance…
