Handcrafted, Private Tours to Georgia


You want to do things your way. We get it. MIR has been planning custom, private tours from scratch for over three decades, and we understand just how important flexibility is in travel.

Traveling privately on a custom private tour affords a great deal of flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, to go at your own pace, and to travel when it’s right for you.

How does it work? We’ll connect you with one of our Private Tour Designers so that you can share your vision and expectations with us.

We’ll ask you questions to better learn about your interests: 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?

We’ll share our extensive experience in the region – and our suggestions. And then we’ll dig into it and custom-craft a private tour itinerary for your review. Give us a call at 800-424-7289 to get started, or click here to be on your way.

Signature Experiences

Below are just a few examples of the signature experiences that MIR can arrange for you in Georgia. Let them be a source of inspiration, then get in touch with one of our Private Tour Designers to craft an itinerary that’s uniquely suited to your travel goals, budget, and style.

Traveler Reviews

  • "[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."
