Approximately 4 hours.


Tour departs from Metekhi Church; Tour ends Rustaveli Avenue.


You’ll start your Tbilisi tour from the point where the city started. You’ll hear about the history and heritage of this ancient town, and the legends that surround it to this day. You’ll cross the Metekhi Bridge — the first bridge in the city to span the Mtkvari — and continue on to the sulphur baths. These natural hot springs come straight from the depths of the Earth, and they’re one of the region’s most popular activities. (If you’d like to book a session at the baths, your guide can help you to make arrangements for later during your travels).

Your walking tour will then take you across Chardin Street to the Tamada statue, which honors Georgia’s traditions of toastmasters and wine-making, and is a copy of an archaeological relic that dates back to the 8th century BCE.

We’ll then visit the Great Synagogue and ancient Sioni Cathedral, which holds St. Nino’s cross — an important relic for Georgians. As we continue, we’ll also pass by the Spiritual Seminary where Stalin studied, reminding us of Georgia’s Soviet past.

Along the way, we’ll stop to visit a basement bakery, where you can see how Georgians make traditional bread in a tone (a deep, circular clay oven), and stop in at a local carpet shop where you can learn about the styles and traditions of carpet-making.

Your Tbilisi tour will then lead you to an underground winery, where you’ll get to taste different kinds of Georgian wines, fermented using 8,000-year-old traditions.

Finally, we’ll arrive at Freedom Square and walk down Pushkini Street, passing by the ruins of the city’s ancient fortress. We’ll then arrive at Anchiskhati Church, the oldest church in Tbilisi.

We’ll finish it all off with a delicious vegetarian lunch at a cozy, charming café.
