Armenia and Georgia comprise a fascinating part of the world that still lies off the beaten track. And it feels that way. Many of us on the trip knew little about the Caucasus before we left for that part of the world, and we all learned so much: about the birth of Christianity, about monastic architecture, about battles for territory and how those battles created intriguing mixtures of cultures, about life under the Soviet regime . . . And all in 9 or so days. We saw such beautiful countryside and ate such delicious food-and had such a range of experiences: cultural, culinary, artistic, urban, active, religious . . . (The only really odd thing is that Georgia at no point felt full of the advertised "hospitality." The Georgian people seemed cold and unapproachable. Perhaps it's misleading to advertise the trip as offering that hospitality firsthand.)

Armenia and Georgia were very interesting countries to visit. Being with a small group was great as we all got to know each other well, and we all looked out for each other.

Solo Notes

We believe solo travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and solo travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.
Accomodations
Standard hotels (7 nts).

Age Notes

Min. Age: You must be 18 to travel unaccompanied on a G Adventures tour. For minors travelling with a guardian over 21 years old, the minimum age is 12.

Rules & Other Requirements Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter, and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our group leader has the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
