Georgia, a Cultural Walking tour

Georgia, a Cultural Walking tour Overview

Georgia, a Cultural Walking tour, encompasses many facets of this ancient Christian country, set high in the Caucasus - alpine meadows filled with wildflowers, vineyards below snowy peaks, remote monasteries and Silk Road caravanserais. Running again in June 2021, this expertly guided holiday has a maximum of 14 guests.

Georgia’s geographical position at the heart of the Greater Caucasus defines its history and culture, placing it at the crossroads of Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East. Invaded over the centuries by the Greeks, Romans, Vikings, Mongols, Persians, Ottoman Turks, Russians, Armenians and even the British (in 1919), Georgians have survived with a very strong sense of identity, expressed through their heritage of defensive towers and splendid, very early, churches – and above all, in their love of wine and feasting and in their legendary hospitality to visitors.

On a 14 day cultural walking tour in June, coinciding with breathtaking displays of wildflowers in the mountain meadows, we explore the old caravanserai district of Tbilisi (an important stage on the Silk Route), visit many beautiful stone-carved churches and monasteries in remote settings, taste wines in vineyards close to the Azerbaijani border and walk in high mountain valleys peppered with ancient stone towers.
