Uplistsikhe, Mtskheta and Jvari - historical private day tour from Tbilisi

Three eras of Georgian history in one day - the picturesque Mtskheta is the cradle of Georgian Christianity, while Uplistsikhe cave town was once the center of Pagan culture and Gori is famous for being the home town of the most infamous Soviet leader - J. Stalin.

The tour covers the main UNESCO sites, such as Svetitskhoveli cathedral, Jvari monastery, but also includes a visit to a local family, who welcomes you in their village house for a traditional lunch, where you can see the present day life in Georgia.
