Couple Traveller

This was our first time booking a tour with Cascade travel, and next year we plan to travel to Armenia with them again. It was quite simply outstanding – from start to finish. We took a guaranteed trip to Georgia September 2022. Kazbegi was the most wonderful day of this tour, the road was amazing. Prometheus cave was wonderful as well, Tbilisi is a nice city for walks and evening dining, drinking.

Good organised private tour to Georgia

I found the Cascade Travel website and along with other companies contacted them for a private tour to Georgia in early May 2022. It was an easy and clear booking process with quick response and information from the staff. I did very little prepayment 100 EUR per person, and full amount we paid on the spot, which made us feel comfortable, besides they guarantee refund of prepayment if something happens and we refuse to travel. On the day, it was a perfect start with an airport meeting with a polite driver and clean comfortable car. We met Keti, our guide. She was very knowledgeable, polite and helpful. This trip was good organised.
