Are there mini-buses that go from Mestia to Tbilisi? I was going to catch the mini bus from Mestia to Zugdidi, then change to train to Tbilisi. But if there is a mini buss that goes all the way, maybe it is easier.
Are there many mini buses from Mestia to Zugdidi during the day from maybe 10am in the morning, and not 6am?
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!
