    Tradition, culture and mindblowing views
    Great combination between history, culture and nice views. Really enjoyed the dinner with a local family, where we were surprised with a dance performance by 4 young guys in traditional clothes. Our guide as well has a great knowledge about history and constantely used humour to make it pleasant.

    Tour
    I love the whole experience. It was so amazing and cheap. Our tour guide Tanuma rocks! We had a very welcoming native family where we were surprised with dances and yes we were taught how Georgian dance. Thank you! Surely I will choose them! 😉

    Great day with my daughter
    I am so glad that my daughter and I went with this touring company. We could not have asked for a better tour company. Our guides and driver get five stars, and I can not thank them enough for the extra things they did for me. I recommend this company and this tour to anyone who wants to experience Georgia’s country, the people who are so friendly and welcoming, the culture, and the beauty.

    Amazing trip
    I moved to Tbilisi one year ago, and I have tried to do many different excursions. This 4 hours tour was one of the best trips I ever had! A fantastic experience and, most importantly, with an amazing company! Our guide Soso made this trip even more fun. He made sure every one of us had fun and made us socialize, dance, and laugh while taking the best pictures! I have booked four more excursions with the same company, and all were well done. I am thrilled to explore this company. Thanks to Soso, Luka, Lasha, and Sofia.

    Unforgettable trip
    I had unforgettable trip with some friends and with the guide of Luka. Our guide Luka has an extensive knowledge about the history of Georgia which he gladly shared with us. As a history lover, I added a lot of historical information and details about Georgia, starting from the 4th century until now. We have visited a local family’s house which was built 2 decades ago, and we had lunch there, and we all loved thdi food .

    Can’t miss this tour
    We were the only two guests that day and Luca(the tourguide) gave us a private tour.
    Very friendly and explained really a lot. Answered all our questions and we visited some magnificent places. During lunch we ate at local family, we truly felt the Georgian hospitality and also very good food.

    Loved the trip,
    I would surely recommend it and also the other tours of the company.

    Perfect tour with a perfect guide
    My wife and I went on this tour on New Year’s Eve and what a way to end the year. It was easily one of the best tours we’ve ever been on. The guide was super sweet and always ready to answer any questions we had. We followed the itinerary perfectly, the sights and history were amazing, and our guide did her best to make sure we were always enjoying the tour and always felt comfortable. We can’t leave a good enough review for this tour, everything was perfect!

    Jvari Monastery-Mtskheta Tour
    This is so amazing tour. You will feel blessed so much because of the two monasteries we visited. The tourist guide Annie shared and explained well all the informations about the places we visited. As christian couple, we felt so blessed visiting this places where they preserved the the original image and materials used in building the said monasteries. I am humbly recommend to all my friends who are planning to visit Georgia for tour, please use Budget Friendly Tour in Travel Advisor. You will not regret their package which the name itself, it is Budget Friendly Tour.!!!

    Excellent organisation, valuable trip!
    I took this because my time in Georgia was limited and I wanted to see something of the country outside of Tbilisi. It’s a very nice tour with great highlights. Guide Keti entertained us very well during the ride, time really flew. Very neat organisation also.

    Would definitely recommend!

    Great trip to learn a lot about Georgia and taste georgian food
    This was our frist trip in Georgia and we’re glad we took it. It was a great way to start to learn about the georgian history, because you visit a lot of places, specially Mtskheta, which are of a great improtance for the history of Georgia. Budget friendly tours was a great choice, they picked us up at the hotel, everything was on time, and the program was great. The lunch place we visited was such a joy, would like to visit it again. Everything was easygoing, we had time for everything, but also saw lot of places. Would like to recommend everyone who wants to learn more about Georgia, see important places and taste real georgian food. The trip was a blast. Thx again for the great time we had.

    Enjoyable trip
    We really enjoyed our tour with Budget friendly tours. It is a small tour (8 persons)and well planned. Given that this company keeps tours to small groups is an added plus as it makes the tour more manageable. The lunch at the family run place is also highly appreciated: tasty fresh food and wine and interesting chats with local people. Kitty our guide was well prepared and very knowledgeable on the places we visited. It was a pleasant trip. We highly recommend this tour.

    Fantastic tour, well guided by Luka
    Thanks Luka for fantastic tour. Luka took us around. The car was good, heated and clean. He not only explained the history of Georgia and each place, but also was kind enough to take photos.
    We had a nice Georgian lunch with a local family.
    The day went very good. Me and my family are really happy and satisfied.

    A long but interestingly trip
    With friendly and helpful guide, Meri, the trip is interesting and informative. The monastery and cathedral are interesting, Meri took us to a comfy and home-like restaurant for lunch where we are able to taste Georgian food. I especially like the taste of Georgian bread. The end of the trip, Meri even goes the extra mile to show me how to take the metro to the hotel. Thanks Meri. We have lots of interest to share.

    Highly recommended
    On the third day in Georgia we had a relatively short tour to the old capital of Georgia, A monastery on the top of a mountain overlooking the capital, Luka our guide on that day was very informative, passionate and of course friendly like all of our previous guides. I would like also to thank the great team at the office who was always in contact with us. During the day they asked us twice to rate the tour to know if there is anything bothering us to fix. Everything was really well organized.
    Highly recommended tour agency 👌

    A MUST DO TOUR!!!
    I dont usually write reviews after the tours i join but this one was exceptional. first of after you book this tour on their website they contacted us in few minutes to make sure that we have their whatsapp number and to ask if we have any questions regarding the tour. then on the day of the tour our guide george picked us up at 9 am sharp when he started by introducing himself and our driver for that day guga.
    we had local family lunch, where we were served one of the most delicious meals we had in georgia.
    The last stop that day was at the monastery that overlooks the old capital where we had some of the most amazing pics.
    to summarize the tour is a must do tour specially if you book with this company and you will be lucky if george will be your guide 😉
    good luck everyone.

    Absolute Must Do!
    The “2 UNESCO sites in 4 hours” tour is a must-do tour! My sister and I booked the tour last minute after another plan had fallen through. We were the only two that had booked for the day, so Soso and Anna picked us up personally at our accommodation. Lots of one-on-one attention, conversation, and laughs that made the trip extra special.
    The drive to Mtskheta was beautiful and the town is very picturesque, making for great photo opportunities. We walked through the town and were able to sample churchkhela and local spices, along with trying our hand at dipping the churchkhela. We met Maya, a local tour guide, at Svetitskhoveli Cathedral for the tour. The cathedral is beautiful and the history is intriguing. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable on the story of the cathedral and the relics it contains and was able to answer any question we had.
    We departed Mtskheta headed for Jvari Monastery. It is located on the top of a hill overlooking two rivers. It was a beautiful place to explore and take pictures of the gorgeous Georgian landscape.
    I highly recommend this tour and Budget Friendly Tours. You’re guaranteed to have a great time and feel like you’re traveling with friends instead of tour guides.
