      My husband and I,both in our 70's,are interested in touring Georgia for a week. Is it easy to make arrangements after arriving in T'bilisi?We usually do that on our travels so we can be flexible and get reasonable prices. Are Marshutkas comfortable?Or would it be possible to hire a car and driver if not too expensive? Would like to experience the culture and people of Georgia.We don't speak Russian but are fluent in English.We come from Israel. Would be interested in meeting Jewish community as well.Any info would be appreciated.Also good comfortable hotel recommendation.

      Georgia Apr 18, 2014 at 10:27 AM

      Hello,
      we (3 adults) to attend Georgia 14 days in July 2014. Our ideas: Check in to Batumi, on the coast first 3-4 days relax. Then a tour of the country. Does anyone have experience with a local tour company or a reliable private driver?
      For the sea: what alternatives are there to Batumi (places and recommendation for accommodation). We like to travel individually, we would like to get in contact with the country and its people. We like to hike, interested in natural beauty, culture.

      Taking car to Georgia

      Georgia Mar 2, 2014 at 4:08 AM

      I'm thinking of taking a driving trip from the UK ending up in Georgia this summer. Ideally I would like to sell the car at the end fly back any help on doing this in Georgia would be appreciated.

      Expect to have to pay some customs duties or something, but don't mind providing these are not rediculous as the car is only worth £1500. I gather there is now a free trade agreement between Georgia and the EU does this help?

    • Leaving my camper (motorhome) behind in Georgia or Armenia for 6 months

      Georgia Feb 3, 2014 at 7:21 AM

      I am new to this forum and thought I might get an answer to my problem. We want to go to the east part of Turkey, Georgia and Armenia in mai/june and would like to leave the camper behind and fly back by plane to Holland. 6 months later we would come back and continue our trip towards Iran. As I understand the camper is registred into the pasport at entry of the country. Is it allowed to leave the country without the van? I looked at te possibilities to leave the van in Turkey, but as I understand know, this is not possible. Is this different in Georgia or Armenia? We would be very gratefull for anyone's help!

      Travel to and from Mestia

      Mestia Sep 3, 2013 at 6:49 PM

      I'm planning to visit Georgia next year. Is it possible to travel by train from Batumi to Zugdidi, then by marshrutky on to Mestia? I can see this route on the general schedule on the Georgian Railways website but it doesn't come up when I search for tickets. Can this trip reliably be done in one day?

      I'm assuming it's faster and easier to reach Mestia from Batumi, rather than from Tbilisi right? Any help is much appreciated!

      Kazbegi hiking

      T'bilisi Jul 31, 2013 at 12:56 PM

      Hi, I'm heading to Kazbegi for a few days in August. I would love to do some hiking but I will be travelling light.
      A few questions:
      1) Will the weather be warm enough to not need anything to warm (maybe a simple long sleeve top) even if walking 'fairly high'(i say 'fairly high' as i am not experienced at anything higher than 2500m but am used to doing many hikes)
      2) Are routes clearly marked or should i bring a OS hiking map?
      3) Should i bring other proper walking gear, like proper boots, or are walking shoes adequate

      Sorry questions may seen a bit amateur but am trying to travel light.

      Thanks Dave

    • Dance and music festivals - and weather....

      Georgia Apr 6, 2013 at 5:56 PM

      Hi - I am just starting to research Georgia (and finding that adding Caucasus does help me get out of the southern United States!) So I will start with my two most important questions. First, are their big or even small but nice traditional dance and music festivals? the tradition is spectacular, after all....I can suffer for art, so if it is in a hot steamy place but important, I can go - Secondly, monuments and natural sites can be visited of course any time. I gather that in the summer in the mountains it is nice, but otherwise can be quite hot. Are there cooler places with great architecture, etc? What would be the crowded summer places to avoid? Thanks,Jean
