We pick you up from the hotel and start the Tbilisi city tour at 10:00 a.m. with a nice walk in the old parts of the capital. During the day we will show you various fascinating and hidden places of this stunning city.
We walk through the old street to Metekhi church, while you listen to the fascinating history of the foundation of Tbilisi. Through the old Shardeni Street and open-air market of carpets, we visit Sioni church and the unique clock tower of the Puppet Theater Rezo Gabriadze. We'll stop to taste local wine and continue our trip to the Narikala fortress. We'll proceed by the cable car, to get to the great monument of the Mother of Georgia. Then we descend from the mountain, through the narrow streets to the fortress Narikala. From the fortress, you enjoy magnificent views on the old part of Tbilisi: Metekhi Church, Monument of Vakhtang Gorgasali and Sulfur baths district. We take memorable photos and continue our road to the sulfur baths district. On the way, you enjoy impressive views of the “Leghvtakhevi” gorge. Along the bridge of love, we walk to the natural waterfall, located in the center of the capital. At the end of the tour, we take you to the famous Georgian market Navtlugi. You can buy everything you want in this picturesque place. You have a chance to taste almost any product: numerous vegetables, fruits, and sweets and get in touch with the locals.
After the city tour, we take you to The Dry Bridge. This extraordinary flea market keeps you entertained for hours. There is a mesmerizing assortment of antiques, old fur hats, and stoles, plenty of jewelry, Soviet pins and medals, and endless rows of books. People re-sell antiques rather than their own possessions. It is always interesting to strike up a conversation with sellers.
You also have the opportunity to visit Mtatsminda Park and enjoy the most incredible view of Tbilisi from there. Mtatsminda Park remains a popular destination for travelers and locals looking for a day of fun and leisure. Another reason to go to Mtsaminda Park is the vintage fairground that also includes a Ferris wheel, Tbilisi TV tower and the restaurants.
The guide shows you the Holy Trinity church, locally known as “Sameba”. The construction of Cathedral was only completed back in 2004, so it doesn’t offer the same amount of history as most of the other churches in Tbilisi. But the Holy Trinity Cathedral is impressive in other ways. It’s with its height of 97,5m the third largest Orthodox cathedral in the world only after the Saint Isaac´s Cathedral in Saint Petersburg and the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow.
You discover the Open-Air Museum of Ethnography with your guide. This collection of traditional, mostly wooden houses, collected from all around Georgia, is spread over a wooded hillside with good views and makes for an enjoyable visit. Then we go up to Turtle Lake (in Georgian “Kus Tba”) which is a small reservoir located on the height of almost 700m above the sea level. It is cozily situated on the left cliff of the Mount Mtatsminda, towering over the Vake Park. You can have dinner here, there are many cafes overlooking Turtle Lake.
This romantic city, with a rich history, attracts hundreds of thousands of travelers from all over the world. The beauty of the mountain region and distinctive Georgian culture inspired many famous writers, artists, and poets to dedicate their great creations to Georgia.
