      T'bilisi or Batumi

      by Phyllis-Omar Online Now Sep 1, 2014 at 5:40 AM

      We would like to travel to Georgia in October however we couldn't decide which one to pick T'bilisi or Batumi? Which one is nicer and worth travel in terms of cultural heritage, characteristics etc?
      Maybe we should consider both.. In that case what is the best option to travel between those two cities?
      Thank you

    • senior travel in Georgia

      by travelbugr Online Now Apr 19, 2014 at 1:21 AM

      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.

    • swimming in september?

      by botbot Online Now Aug 23, 2011 at 6:50 AM

      I'm planning a trip to Batumi and Sarpi in mid-September. Is the sea still swim-able then? What's the weather like, and what's the latest that it's still enjoyable to swim in the Georgian Black Sea?

      Hello me and my mate are preparing the trip of a life time, I am wondering what the easiest option it was going from Ukraine - Georgia, by ferry.

      It is part of a larger site-seeing expedition that we are planning.

      Any help would be very much appreciated.

    • How can I go to Batumi by ferry?

      by batura Online Now Jul 31, 2006 at 7:52 AM

      I would like to go to Batumi by ferry. The departure harbour in Black Sea is not important. Do you know from which harbours I can find a ferry to Batumi or to Poti?
