- Enjoy a home-cooked meal with a local family
- Admire the oldest church in Georgia
- See the seminary where Josef Stalin once studied
Expect to sample some traditional Georgian hospitality during this unique Tbilisi sightseeing tour. Because not only will you be shown around all of the city’s must-see landmarks, but you’ll also be welcomed with open arms into the home of a local family for a meal (and some homemade wine!). Learn the history of Tbilisi from an expert guide, as you wander the city streets from Metekhi Bridge to the popular sulphur baths, and the Spiritual Seminary, where one Josef Stalin once took instruction. You’ll also see the Great Synagogue, the Sioni Cathedral and the Anchiskhati Basilica - the oldest church in Georgia and dating back to the 6th century. And don’t forget to pose for your photo with the tamada sculpture depicting a typical toastmaster - a symbol of Georgian wine-making and feasting.
Once you reach Freedom Square, you’ll have built up an appetite. It’s a short hop from here by public transport (ticket included) to the home of a local Tbilisi family, who will give you a true taste of Georgia. You can take a crash course in making well-known dishes such as khinkali and khachapuri (dumplings and cheese-filled breads), or you can simply relax with a glass of homemade wine, stored in the traditional manner in clay jars underground. This Tbilisi gift experience goes above and beyond other sightseeing tours - how better to understand a city than by getting to know the people who live there, and breaking bread with them over a delicious meal?
