The below video represents the summer version of this tour – just add snowy mountains and fireplaces! NOTE: Early December can still be quite warm and little to no snow on the mountains and a fireplace may not be needed! But still the same fun seasonal tour experience.
Our premium tours are priced higher than budget or mid-range competitors due to our dedication to exclusivity, quality, authenticity, and fair compensation to guides and small family winemakers.
Our philosophy on price is: What is better value for money, a unique boutique dinner with premium wine, or eating a supermarket sandwich on a park bench with a nice view? Either experience could get a 5 star review, if the quality meets the price tag and exceeds your personal expectations.
Although we understand our prices may not suit everyone, we guarantee premium experiences surpassing cheaper alternatives, to which our past guests overwhelmingly give 5 star reviews and agree are genuinely worth the price tag. Learn why, below.

From artistically presented modern Georgian cuisine with fine wines, to toasting to the ancestors of Georgia with Bacho the winemaker in his wine cellar while eating the khachapuri his wife prepared for us in their home kitchen. All in one day! Eat This! Tours more than delivered on the authenticity (and quantity + quality!) they promised. I am now recommending their tours to everyone I know going to Georgia. See original review on TripAdvisor.

Even if you book solo, if enough other people join the group, you will pay less. We email you the final price a day or 2 before your trip commences. The trip needs 2 adults minimum to run, but you can also book solo as others will likely join you even if you are the first to book a specific date.

If traveling with children under 18, you must book a private tour.
NOTE: We work with many small family wineries. Photos represent the typical places you will visit but it is impossible to guarantee 100% that the exact wineries pictured will all be visited on every tour. We follow the same itinerary and inclusions/experiences each time, but substitutions of wineries and slight changes in timings often happen.
Walk the cobbled streets of the village, which was King Erekle II’s summer retreat. Enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the Caucasus mountains. Also walk part of the city walls – the longest fortification in Europe. Visit the small souvenir shops. Make a quick visit to Bode monastery complex, if time and if so desired.
Mainly NO. The tour runs in all weathers but note that if it is heavy rain or snow, a visit to walk the walls in Signagi may not be much fun, especially if it’s icy and dangerous, so you can opt to spend more time elsewhere. Very heavy snow can occasionally cause road closures to Siganagi, in which case we’d visit the areas below Signagi in the valley instead.
We always have substitution options for severe weather, and it actually only snows heavily a few days, and not every year, so it’s almost unheard of to actually cancel this tour. In that incredibly rare event, we’d refund your payment or reschedule.
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.
