    This trip had TWO guides. I couldn't find a way of adding our Georgian guide, Alex. Alex was absolutely super. She provided all the information we needed and made it always interesting. She went out of her way to make sure we all had a really memorable... Show more

    Some notes misleading: no need to buy dollars as euros are exchanged everywhere and sterling is in most places. Walks are easy and require no specialist gear. Water bottles useless as water is already bottled.
    Explore! commented on this review
    Thank you for your review. We do try to keep our trip notes as relevant as possible when it comes to money exchange but I will pass this to the product manager to review. We recommend bringing your own water bottle in case there is not bottled water... Show more
