It was very hard to find an appropriate job at that so I had to improvise. I've worked as a Journalist and documentary filmmaker before moving into tourism and hospitality. Georgia started to become popular tourist destination from 2004. There were only few agencies operating at that time and even less qualified guides, so we opened small company in the hart of an old city. Me and my friends were organizing and conducting private and joint tours around the country.
I have worked as a tour operator and guide more than 10 years explaining to all kinds of guests what's really unique about Georgia. How we managed to conserve our language, religion and traditions despite all this wars and battles throughout the history. One of the most notable things I've learned so far probably is an approach. I would like to consider that every person need to be treated differently, accordingly. I prefer to think that every time I am going to meet new people they are mu personal guest, even friends.
Moving to the private sector gave me new possibilities. During the private tour we can have more control of our time. we can be more flexible changing locations and duration according to what is best at the moment.
I am marred and have two small daughters. Besides tourism am thinking going back to my academic life and finish my masters in international relationships.
I am not licensed to drive sprinters or big vans. (more than 8 passengers) In that case I can accompany you as guide. Driver and bigger car will be hired.
