My family and friends enjoyed a wonderful day seeing the sights of Tblisi and Mtsketa yesterday. Mariami was able to give us a great overview of the country and its history and answer all our questions. She was very professional and the day went very smoothly. We are already planning another excursion with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tim for your trust and kind words. It was my pleasure to show them beautiful places in Georgia.

I thoroughly enjoyed my tour today and learned much more than just the wine agenda. My guide was very knowledgeable about the history, culture, and political situation in Georgia that it was value added beyond my expectations. Mariami's enthusiasm in telling the Georgia story was both infectious and educationally interesting to me and makes me want to return for more!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Gerry for today's tour. It was really pleasure for me to be your guide. Will be always happy to meet you in future. Regards

This trip was added at the last minute because I enjoyed very much my originally planned two day tour with Mari. Please read my prior review but, in short, Mari is terrific and could not have had a better guide for my three days in Georgia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David . Was my pleasure to be your guide in Georgia

Mari is fabulous. There is no question her guidance, knowledge and thoughtfulness greatly contributed to my enjoyment of my trip. She went above and beyond with her time, providing me with insights and experiences I would not have had on my own. One small example was her quick thinking in making a completely unplanned stop at a small bakery in a tiny village so I could see how Georgian bread is baked. She is a true professional and a lovely person, and so is her driver Georgi. My thanks to both.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David for this kind words and amazing playlist :) I am glad you had a good time in Georgia .
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Mariami. She organised our itinerary before we arrived, and once she got know us we were able to make adjustments as we went. She was very knowledgeable about all of the periods of Georgian history as well as the ethnic regions that make up the state of Georgia. Her love and pride in her country shone through helping us to appreciate this wonderful country
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rod. Thank you for letting me to have a chance to represent Georgia for you and your friends. All the best and till we meet again.
Visiting Georgia with Mariami was an incredible experience. She is a very well organised person, cheerful, kind and full of positive surprises. She arranged everything in advance so well, that there is nothing she could have done any better. She was perfect in every aspect. She knows sooo much about the country's history and current affairs that she can saisfy even the most curious person. Thank you Mari for the fantastic holiday, for your kind heart you put in making our holiday perfect. You are the best
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Renata thanks for leaving such a wonderful review. I am thrilled that you loved your experience and Georgia. Already miss you and your family and for sure Jokes. So thanks for your kind words and I look forward to seeing you again.
You can tell Mariami loves her job and her country from the way she put her standards and ethics in her tour. Comfortable vehicle and great driver and service. While I really enjoyed Dabid Gareja, the best part of the tour was the time I spent with an Udabno family where we learned how to make Kachapuri etc. The Ubdano lady was a brilliant cook, serving one of the best local meals of my trip - in big portion and varieties! If you like to have a unique local experience, I recommend this tour with Mariami
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Hathairat. Your support and kind words means a lot for me . Always happy to Welcome you
Wow. The detail and depth of history I experienced on this tour was outstanding. Miriami demonstrated astounding knowledge of the complex and layered history and architecture of Tbilisi. ...I found myself deeply drawn into the sights & history of Tbilisi as the tour progressed. Thank you Miriami ! You are an exceptional Guide and Storyteller ! PS- Although it was hot, Miriami was careful, considerate and ensured I had plenty of water and shade :)) Kindly, -Nicole
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nicole. .loved showing you around. Best wishes from Georgia :) Always your host and guide Mari
The tour with Mariami was one of the most memorable experiences of my two weeks in the Caucasus. In particular the time we spent with a local family in Udabno for lunch, which was not only delicious but also gave a window into the lives of ordinary Georgian people. Mariami was an excellent guide, providing useful explanations with just the right amount of detail for me. I highly recommend this tour with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Neil, your words meant a lot for me. For this small village Udabno and for this community.
This tour began with a pick-up at my accommodations. The car was clean, in good condition and comfortable, and the driver (George) was friendly, professional, accommodating and drove safely *Thank you George* Miriami is an outstanding guide both in the way she truly connects with people, and, her formidable historical kowlege and story-telling; she provided a fascinating and captivating connection with the ancient and rich history of this area of Georgia. I was truly fortunate to have Miriami as my guide*
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to be your guide in Georgia Nicole :) Thank you
My tour began with a pickup at my accommodations in Tbilisi. The vehicle was a four-wheel drive, new, in good repair and clean. Our driver (George) was professional, friendly and drove safely. My guide (Miriami) was an exceptional guide; the wealth of information she shared about the areas we toured and visited was stunning; She brings the history of Georgia alive. My tour provided an authentic and moving experience.. well beyond what I had hoped for. **Much praise and many thanks Mirami** ~Nicole

This is an excellent tour which provides fascinating information about the history of Tbilisi. Mariami is an experienced, knowledgeable and flexible guide who delivers a very pleasant tour. For those interested in learning about the past and present of Georgia and Tbilisi this is a good place to start. I would recommend it early on in your visit to the city. I understand that Mariami does many other tours and I will be recommending her to friends and family planning to visit Georgia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Daphne. I am happy that you had great time in Georgia and my tour showed you difference Tbilisi. Till we met again ❤️
I spent a fantastic day with Mari and her driver. The mountain scenery was unbelievably beautiful and lunch was a prime example of Georgian hospitality. I hope that many can enjoy the fantastic journey with this knowledgeable lady. The crowds were quite busy, but I felt very safe.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your trust and beautiful day.
Patricia L.United States
Mariami is a superb guide! She went out of her way to create a tour for me at very short notice, based on the time that I had available and my particular interests. She's very well-informed, not just about Georgia's history, culture, architecture and art, but also about current affairs in Georgia and Europe. She is genuinely interested in other cultures, encourages questions and participates in lively discussions. She is engaging and warm and tells fascinating stories. You couldn't find a better guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Patricia for your kind words. Showing you Georgia was my pleasure. Thank you for your trust and gifts :)
I was very happy with my tour guide especially but also with ToursByLocals for making it effortless and for having great people like Mariami to represent you. Thanks!
