Introduction

With its rich culture and astoundingly diverse landscapes, Georgia is a must visit for all history and nature lovers. Green valleys stretch across the countryside, home to verdant vineyards, ancient monuments and mountain scenery. Considered to be the birthplace of wine, Georgia has amazing drink offerings that pair perfectly with its delicious traditional cuisine. On this suggested itinerary, discover the history and culture of Georgian villages and towns that dot the Caucasus Mountains, beginning your journey in the capital city of Tbilisi.

Not often frequented by tourists, Georgia is a destination that can be difficult to navigate. When you embark on a luxury holiday to Georgia with OROKO, not only do we offer excellent value, but our expertise, 24/7 support and local representatives ensure a seamless luxury experience throughout.
