    All about the The Cave Cities.

    Georgia has served from the earliest times as a crossroad of cultures, with its traditions and values tightly kept during the turbulent history. Travelers, public figures, writers and finally visitors have all remarked the beauty of the landscape, unique polyphonic music, dramatic mountains and surely delicious and original cuisine. All these have evolved steadily over three millennia – along with an indigenous language and script.

    The tour consists of visiting ancient monuments, rock-hewn cities and some of the most important speleological caves.

    You’ll have chance to step in the ancient history of civilization, represented today as remains of cave sites keeping secrets and mysteries.  Be admired to enclose them all!
