Learn about the qvevri (clay amphorae) right where they are made, at a family home workshop. Taste his wines and a special aged “chacha” (local spirit).
Visit the monastery with the longest continuous wine production in Georgia, since 1011 AD. Backdropped by the Caucasus mountains in a very scenic spot. Note: The cellar is sadly not open to guests, but the location and history makes this an interesting and important stop.
Exact arrival time depends on how much fun you were having at the last winery!
Mainly no. The only reason for major changes to the tour based on weather would be during winter if the mountain pass is blocked/dangerous due to snow or ice. In which case the tour can still operate but the driver would have to take the longer route, which will add ~2 hours of driving to the route. Normally in this case though we would suggest an alternative itinerary with some different stops, instead of a longer drive.
The only currency accepted by vendors for buying wine/gifts etc. to take home, is the national currency GEL. You can get this from any ATM and your driver will be happy to stop at one.
Purchase of our tours is normally in GEL based on the current exchange rate for the USD pricing of the tours. We’ll advise you of the exchange rate by email shortly before the tour date.
The initial standard price listed on our tour webpages is based on 1 adult traveling in a group of 2 to 4 people on a scheduled tour. Groups of 5 or more adults receive discounts. If you booked at full price and your tour ends up with 5 or more people after you booked, we will refund you any owed savings. This is done on the morning of the tour to ensure we know the exact number of people who actually took the tour, and can account for last minute sign ups and no-shows when calculating the final price.
The final discount will vary depending on the exact number of guests in the vehicle. We always honor discounts and will normally contact you about the expected final price the day before your tour, if it has changed since you initial booking.
Prices vary for private and custom tours (we’ll give you an exact quote based on what you want to book) as well as any extras you may book in addition to the scheduled tours.
The price you pay is the exact price it costs us to run the service (paying guides and vendors for what they provide etc.) plus a margin of 10% to 30% to cover marketing costs, office staff, and so we run at a profit (otherwise we’ll go out of business!). The margin depends on the amount of people, and type of tour. We actually subsidize tours with only 2 people on, out of our margin, to keep our pricing competitive, and because we’d rather have our guides out and getting paid, than get greedy and penalize small groups.
We always try to price transparently and as fairly as possible and to pay guides and vendors above average in order to retain the best people.
