Although Nino, our tour leader was very pleasant and helpful, with interesting facts about Georgia, she had a poor knowledge of the mountains, which was disappointing on a walking holiday. The local mountain guides who accompanied us were useless, spoke no English, showed no interest in the walks and did not stop to keep the group together unless phoned by our leader. The walks often did not match the dossier description, being too short. The standard of accommodation was variable, being very good in Tbilisi and unacceptable in Becho, where our group had to share two bathrooms with the family of about 20, even having to wait until the family had finished using the bathrooms themselves. The owners were quite rude and unwelcoming, unlike the delightful Meri in Mestia, who couldn't do enough for us. It was noticeable that our group was allocated the worst accommodation of all the Visit Georgia groups we saw and given the fact that the majority of guesthouses were charging £20 to £25 for full board, we felt that this tour was vastly overpriced and represented the poorest value for money we have ever experienced in 40 years of travelling. In our opinion the pricing should be on a par with the Moroccan trips. Moreover, only 2 of the hotels named in the final documentation were actually used by the group. We should be given a correct list or no list at all. We were quite surprised that the tip kitty had to be in US dollars rather than local currency, and had to intervene when Nino wanted to give the first mountain guide 30 dollars as she did not understand that tips are given for good Service! This review sounds very negative, but these aspects need to be addressed. On the other hand, Levan our driver was excellent, the food was plentiful and delicious everywhere we went, Georgia is a beautiful country and we enjoyed the trip very much.

The walks from Kazbegi and Mestia were the highlight of the trip. Some however were quite short and I would have preferred longer ones. The accommodation in Mestia wasn't good but some of us were moved to a different much better hotel.

Georgia is exotic, ranging from the sophistication and night life and jazz in Tbilisi, to the simplicity of the over-river wooden built latrines in the mountains.

Ushgali was my highlight of the trip, way up in the mountains. Villages of great simplicity, valley sides grazed by docile cattle and horses, defensive towers pointing skywards, narrow footpaths to share with the shaggy dogs and cattle, and fresh real milk.

Our excellent bus driver drove carefully on the narrow winding roads through the mountains where there were landslides one side, and a precipice down to the deep valley and gushing river below on the other side.

The service provided by our tour leader was excellent. When he had to make new arrangements in one place for more sophisticated accommodation for some of us, he was very efficient, and at all times kept his good humour.

Excellent holiday and very good value for money. The group I was with were all travelling alone which made for a group of people who wanted to mix and we all got on very well. Our guide was also very good and we learnt about the country and its recent past.
