Overview

Traveling privately on a custom itinerary means flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, and to travel when it’s right for you.

Want to learn more about traditional Georgian winemaking with a visit to a local qvevri maker’s workshop, seeing how these 200-900 gallon earthenware vessels used to ferment and store Georgian wine are made? How about a visit to a local silk farm, where the host shares her encyclopedic knowledge of herbs, remedies, and traditional recipes over tea? Need suggestions?

  • "[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."
