Day 2

Full Day of Sightseeing with Optional Sulphur Baths
Spend a relaxed day visiting Tbilisi's sites and exploring the Old Town. Walk up to the restored Narikala Fortress, Tbilisi's most imposing structure. Dating back as far as the fourth century, it offers views over the city from the rocky spur upon which it sits. Continue to the Metekhi Church and Citadel, which sits on a cliff above the river. As well as serving as a royal place of worship, this complex doubled as a fort, in which the King resided. Nearby, see the sulphur springs and 18th century Persian-style royal baths. Then visit the traditionally-styled, but recently constructed, Holy Trinity Cathedral. This dominating building is the third-tallest Eastern Orthodox Church in the world and is topped with a magnificent golden cross. Finally, have the option to visit a traditional bath house and bathe in the sulphur waters. (The entrance fee is paid locally.)

The largest city in Georgia by a considerable distance, Tbilisi can justifiably claim to be the heart of the country. Squeezed between mountain ranges, the city fills the Mtkvari river valley. Having been the capital of Georgia for more than 1,500 years, in some form or another, Tbilisi is rich in history. However, as a city that hints at a new-found wealth, Tbilisi is undoubtedly changing. New building projects have added a touch of glamour to this historic city and contrast with the narrow streets, unchanged religious buildings and caravanserais of the old town.

Visit the Open Air Ethnography Museum
Spread over 52 hectares of land and split into a number of zones, the Open Air Ethnography Museum displays a wide variety of folk architecture and craftwork from Georgia's various regions.

More than 8,000 items fill the numerous buildings and highlights include traditional 'darbazi' houses, Kakhetian wineries, knitting frames and an early-medieval burial vault.

Have the chance to walk up to the 14th century Trinity Church at Gergeti. Offering breath-taking views of the Caucasus Mountains, the church is only accessible on foot or by 4x4. It sits atop a small peak above the Chkheri River and the walk takes around 90 minutes each way.

Afterwards, drive to the Dariali Canyon, close to the Russian Border and deep in the Caucasus Mountains. Here, visit the beautiful 30-metre-high Gveleti Waterfall.

Joe Parkes, Travel Expert

"It was extremely helpful to work in conjunction with Joe and his much more up to date knowledge of India and arrive at an itinerary which we were happy with. We enjoyed the whole trip and probably what made it special for us was the fact that all the arrangements worked so well and we really didn’t have to worry about anything at all. Even when we decided to make a small change it was dealt with efficiently and promptly. We can't think of anything that would have made our trip more enjoyable."

"The service from start to finish has been excellent. Joe was very quick to respond to any queries and put together an excellent itinerary at short notice."

"A pleasure to deal with Joe. Efficient, helpful, knowledgeable and fun!"
