Georgia Holidays

Protected by the Caucasus Mountains, Georgia is a beautiful country. Here striking modern architecture complements spectacular natural scenery and fine vineyards give way to ancient cathedrals. Bordered to the west by the Black Sea, Georgia has been heavily influenced by its neighbours which is reflected not only in culture and art but also in architecture and food. Capital of Georgia for over 1,500 years, Tbilisi is recognised as the heart of the Caucasus. Explore the historic old town with its narrow alleyways, charming homes, baths and cathedrals then travel outside of the city to Telavi, Georgia’s wine growing region or the ancient city of Kutaisi. For spectacular mountain scenery and great walking head north from Tbilisi to Gudauri and the iconic snowy peak of Mt Kazbek. With our knowledge and experience we can help to create a unique holiday to Georgia that is tailored exactly to your requirements.

Holiday Ideas for Georgia

Accommodation in Georgia

Since the fall of the Soviet Union, the quality of hotel accommodation throughout Georgia has greatly improved. In Tbilisi there are a selection of good internationally owned hotels – the architecture of which can be quite futuristic, as much of the modern buildings are in Georgia. Facilities at these hotels are largely good, with restaurants, swimming pools, bars and spas. There are also some boutique-style hotels here too. Outside of the capital, accommodation is generally clean and comfortable but tends to be of a traditional style. In the town of Dilijan the hotel here is particularly memorable with guesthouse accommodation in charmingly renovated heritage buildings.

Georgia Holiday Review

“It really was a marvellous experience. Georgia is fascinating and the people are so friendly and interested in Westerners, especially if you're old enough to remember Stalin and know the history of that period.”
