In February 2018 I visited Kazbegi and Gadauri with IA. The drive through the greater Caucasus region on the scenic military highway was really wonderful . We had a really nice snow experience in the mountains and in Gadauri ski resort. On the way we visited historical Ananuri Fortress and had great Georgian food in nice restaurant @ stepantsminda . Ia knows all most everything about the Georgian history and place and she is professional, friendly and make you feel at home. Thank you Ia and Sam
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Biju for your review, It was a pleasure guiding you.

We spent a lovely day touring the Kakheti region with Ia. She was very personable and her knowledge about Georgian history and culture gave us additional insight into the places we visited. I liked that we were allowed to take things in at our own pace so we never felt rushed. Highly recommended.

Tour conducted by Ia through toursbylocals indeed contributed to making our trip to Georgia a memorable one. Beautiful place, a must visit place, so much of different landscapes, churches and history to see and learn. Ia was a fantastic guide making sure that we got to visit all the places we wanted to, eat the famous dishes Georgia is known for and ensuring our trip was very comfortable from the start to the end.
