  • "[This was] the trip of a lifetime, especially the Svaneti area of Georgia…. Being in the [Caucasus Mountains] was like being in a National Geographic article."

  • "Thorough, informative, relaxed, entertaining. After this trip I can honestly say that I finally understand the history (and turmoil) that these countries have gone through. I plan to spend a lot of the time in the library reading and learning more about my Lithuanian heritage. "
