Borjomi, Vardzia and Rabati Castle Tour

At 9 am we'll meet in front of the Best Western hotel in Kutaisi, where we'll hop on a minibus to head towards our first stop.

Three hours later, and after a short break along the way, we'll arrive at our destination: Rabati Castle. We'll explore this ancient medieval fortress and learn its fascinating history. Afterwards, we will stop at a local restaurant so you can have lunch at your own leisure.

After enjoying a delicious meal, we'll set off to Vardzia to visit its peculiar 12th-century monastery, carved directly into the mountain. We'll have fun walking through this unique landscape and visiting places such as the main church, the pharmacy, or the cellars.

Then we'll head to Borjomi, a charming village where we'll explore beautiful parks and stroll through unique streets. 

Lastly, we'll return to the starting point in Kutaisi, ending the tour at 11 pm.

Ending point
