Reviews for Georgia vacation, tailor made


review 23 Jul 2013

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Hard to say - it was all wonderful. But probably our time in the High Caucasus Mountains where the wildflowers, scenery, and local people were unforgettable.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Take the Bradt Guide - it's full of great information.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely benefited local people. Throughout the tour we travelled with a local guide and 2 local drivers. Hotels and Guest Houses were all locally owned/managed. We ate locally produced food in small restaurants/cafes most of the time, and shopping was direct from vendors in markets or from stalls, churches and a remote convent (where the nuns made their own cheese, jam, pottery etc.). I think this particular vacation had minimal environmental impact - whilst we were traveling by car between destinations, distances weren't great. Since it's clear that many visitors visit to experience the beauty of the unspoilt countryside, this must (one hopes) be an incentive to encourage conversation.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

A truly wonderful experience.
