A Day-Tour in Vardzia, Rabati, Borjomi in Georgia
From US$45.00
Low Price Guarantee
Overview
Outside of Tbilisi, Georgia sightseeing offers up a cocktail of history, culture, and natural wonders. See three top regional attractions in a day on this guided sightseeing tour to the Borjomi mineral springs, Vardzia cave town, and Akhaltsikhe (New Fortress), all by private vehicle and with commentary from your guide to fill you in on the sights as you pass.
What to Expect
• Borjomi is a small town in the mountains. There are many beautiful places to visit there, but the most famous is the town because of mineral water Borjomi with unique healing qualities and taste. It’s been known for centuries, that this water was unique, but it really becomes famous during Russian reign in Georgia. Russian built here resort, palaces, and found out about mineral water itself. Borjomi water won its first gold medal in 1907 in Belgium. The water has been bottled since 1896.
• We continue our way to Vardzia cave town (12th century). Then we visit Khertvisi Fortress (10th century) before moving to the magnificent Vardzia. Vardzia is one of the highlights of the trip and stretches over half a kilometer along the river Mtkvari, with 19 tiers. There used to be about 3000 caves here, but now there are just over 500. It has a church hewn out of rock with amazing 12th-century frescoes. The Complex also includes living quarters, small hall-type churches, and refectories, wine cellar, etc.
• Continue towards the town of Akhaltsikhe (New Fortress) that always has had strategic importance. That’s why the fortress Rabat has been built here in IX century, so it’s been called the fortress inside the fortress. It was guarding Georgia for centuries, but there were periods when enemies took over. The fortress keeps traces of both times, giving us an unforgettable impression. The fortress has been renovated several years ago. Here you can see the Georgian church, mosque and Madrasa – Islamic school, citadel, and unique museum. The Rabati fortress is one of the highlights of this region.

Great value for money, but could be better.

I must admit that I was pretty unlucky with the group I went with. There were couple of chain smokers who always disappeared from the group and made everything badly behind schedule. Also the Tour company did not gave enough information about the condition of...More
