Is this trip right for you?
  • No physical exertion is required for this tour, as there are no hikes included. However, be prepared for a rich local experience, including visits to family-run wineries and restaurants. Please be cautious if you need to control your cholesterol, as Georgian food tends to be high in calories.
  • The 7-day tour in Georgia covers only some parts of the country. If you're looking for a longer trip, you can consider the regional Armenia Georgia wine tour or the extended tour in Georgia, which covers more sights.
  • During the Georgia food and wine tour we visit the slopes of Kazbegi Mount, which reach elevations of 2000+. To ensure your safety and well-being, it is important to consult with your doctor beforehand and bring any necessary medication with you.
