I have booked accommodation but despite repeated attempts at e mailing and calling I have had no success in getting an answer as no one responds!

    • Relocating to Georgia

      by nooradannish Online Now Nov 18, 2015 at 4:34 AM

      Hello All,

      My husband and I are planing on relocating to Georgia possibly, I do however have lots of questions running through my mind, especially about my two dogs, who happen to be Pit bulls, In terms of pet service, what is it like for pet dogs living in Georgia ?

      Another question I have, instead of renting, we are planing on buying a home, i know cost ranges differ , but a rough approximate for an ordinary home ?

      Last but not least, considering my pets, what is the best location ? I am also a professional dog walker, so if I decide to continue my profession in Georgia, is it a good idea or bad ?

      Hi everybody,

      We plan to be in Georgia in June next year.

      We'll rent a car, drive from Tbilisi first to Mtsketha, to Sighnaghi, to Kazbegi, to Gori, etc.

      Is there a passable road between Sighnaghi and Kazbegi via Kvareli and Akhmeta without first going back via Tbilisi?

      Please help.

      Driving Vacation in Georgia and Turkey?

      by VidER Online Now Aug 25, 2015 at 2:33 PM

      Hi all.

      I enjoy driving through scenic road, photography, and food. I was planning a 6 days trip in October where I start from Tbilisi Georgia and drive to Batumi then on the shores of the Black Sea to Turkish cities such as Ayder, Uzongol, and Trabzone.

      My questions are:

      1- is such a trip safe?
      2- do you suggest any cities to include in the trip?
      3- will they allow me to take a rental car from Georgia to Turkey?
      4- will the weather in October suit such a trip?

    • Visiting T'bilisi, which area to stay ?

      by A.G Online Now Aug 21, 2015 at 4:33 AM

      Hi All,

      My wife and me want to go and visit Georgia for the first time. To be honest it’s a black box for us, but after an initial research, we have found Tbilisi is a good choice since it’s the capital of Georgia and is considered as an old town. Our preference is for a quite area/romantic. Seeing different cultures, building, green areas and mountains.

      We are flying from Dubai; hence air ticket is quit expensive. Only one airline with direct route!

      We are travelling in 20th September and for four or five days, expecting a baby in January hence wanted to ask for a hotel close to the Metro with a budget around USD 100 per day. Any hotel recommendation?

      Also what area you would recommend to stay at? What people usually do there at Georgia?

      From Tbilisi (GE) to Baku (AZ) by public transport in two days

      by HORSCHECK Online Now Aug 30, 2014 at 2:11 AM


      Which other options do I have to travel from Tbilisi (GE) to Baku (AZ) than the night train? I am looking for a trip by bus, marshrutka or train or a mixture of all these.

      In theory I have two days for the trip, so would prefer to stay somewhere interesting in Azerbaijan on the trip. I have read something about the border post at Krasny Most (Red Bridge) between Georgia and Azerbaijan. Still for me it looks like the bus trip from there to Baku is still too long.

      Any advice is very much appreciated.

      Kazbegi hiking

      by littlebush Online Now 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
