Solo travel experience

I had a wonderful experience for one week which was safe and comfortable. I traveled around by private taxi, which was cheap and trustworthy thanks to the locals. They suggested the best places for me to stay. The mountains and nature were like I had never seen before, absolutely gorgeous! :)

Family travel experience

I was in a hostel in Batumi, there are many options and all of them are generally very decent and at a good price. you can’t go wrong with the food anywhere because everything is very authentic and good, but the best places are the tiny outlying places where the locals make their own meals from home. the best pancakes in Batumi are at the entrance to the dolphinarium (on the picture) you really have to try these and the couple who make them are the cutest ever. For driving around we had a local taxi driver to get around (through acquaintances), but you can also get around by bus. my favorite experience was in the mountains, where the Georgian family performed traditional dances and songs, they also prepared food for us, and later people were also involved in dancing and singing. for example, women were dressed in Georgian clothes and taught traditional dance. the experience was wonderful( also on the picture).

Solo travel experience

I've been to Georgia many times, it's a very safe country, you just need to exercise normal caution, just like in any other place. The app for ordering taxis, Bolt, is the one all my friends use there, it works very well and is super cheap. If you want to go hiking or to remote places, it's best to do it with a guide or a group.

Solo travel experience

I went to Georgia for my first ever solo trip. I had an amazing time and I couldn't be happier that I made this decision. The country is beautiful, the people are very friendly, you can find delicious food and wine there, and it's also a very cheap destination.

Solo travel experience

I spent 11 days in Georgia, and there was still so much to do. I highly recommend visiting this beautiful country if you like nature, beaches, history, and good food. It is inexpensive and you can get lower prices if you book locally. I visited Kazbegi and Gadauri (snowy areas), Batumi (beach), Kakheti (8,000 years of winemaking and nature), Tbilisi, and Mtskheta (all with amazing historical attractions). Most of the attractions are free, with the exception of museums. I traveled on organized tours and by minivan (marshrutka) and both were great experiences. The local food is delicious, especially khachapuri with egg/cheese (pastry). I felt very safe traveling alone and using public transport during the day and night.

Solo travel experience

I connected Georgia and Armenia in 10 days, spending 5 days in each country, and their capitals (Tbilisi and Yerevan) served me as a base for short excursions. Beautiful places. I really can recommend them. I made a one-day trip to the Georgian mountains of Kazbegi, but it is definitely a place where you can spend more time if you like mountains and hiking.

Solo travel experience

I adored Georgia. Lots of beautiful old monasteries and extremely friendly locals. Tbilisi is a really cool city, I went to a hammam and had a quite good scrub there. I would like to go back there.

Solo travel experience

I took a two-week solo trip. It was wonderful. I stayed in Tbilisi for 5 days, toured the city and also took day trips. Then I was in Gudauri for a while and went skiing. Then to Kazbegi for a few days. Georgia was beautiful and incredibly affordable.
