"My sister and I went on a 6 days vacation in Georgia, and we had the best time of our lives! We were fortunate in finding ILIA, a Georgian guide with fantastic local knowledge of Georgia. He has his own 4 by 4 car and is a very safe driver. We went in city tour in Tbilisi, traditional wine cellars visits in Khakheti, hiking and horse riding in Kazbegi and visiting the most famous monasteries in the region! Driving in Georgia is not simple and we considered ourselves very lucky to have Ilia as this meant that we were both safe and comfortable… Ilia is very knowledgeable in the history, geography, history and politics of the caucuses and we enjoyed listening to all these interesting stories! Do yourself a favor and get in touch with him , if you need a guide for any part of Georgia My best regards Safaa"

"Ilia was honestly the best guide against whom all other guides are now measured. Our family traveled all around Georgia for 8 days on the most beautiful, delicious, interesting, worry free vacation we’ve ever taken. Ilia was amazing with our two young daughters, ages 4 and 1. He was so kind, patient, and flexible when we needed snacks, bathrooms, and other kid related needs at a moments notice. His English is superb and he knows everything about Georgian history and culture. We came to eat and he planned the most wonderful meals and oh the wine! I couldn’t recommend him any higher and have been encouraging everyone to visit Georgia and travel with Ilia!"

For my first trip to Georgia I was very lucky to have Ilia as my tour guide. Ilia organised me 4 days of incredible discoveries, including visits to wineries, experiencing local food, and hiking in the beautiful Caucasus. He is very knowledgeable and an agreeable travel companion, punctual but also flexible to accommodate your requests or sudden changes in circumstances. I didn't feel like another tourist, rather like a guest, enjoying the country and its people. And he is the safest and most careful driver of the country! Friends recommended Ilia to me, and I am definitely recommending him to my friends



Ilia is your perfect guide to Georgia. His expertise in the region ensures you get a local and customized experience. Our plan to visit Georgia was very impromptu and was end to end managed by Ilia. Ilia’s unique selling proposition to me is the trust he builds and genuinely. Highly recommend to folks who want to travel worry less and experience Georgia through its nature, culture and history. I wish Ilia the very best

On my first visit to Georgia and my first ever solo adventure, I was fortunate enough to be recommended Travel Team Georgia! Ilia was my tour guide and I honestly couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable guide or for a better companion! Ilia customised my itenerary to include my 2 biggest interests Food and Hiking and after traveling together for the first 3 days I decided to extend my trip to incorporate a visit to the Wine region! Georgia is a beautiful country, with much history, stunning views and the most delicious food I've ever tried! Thank you Ilia for showing me all it has to offer and making it an unforgettable adventure!

"I spent 10 days all around Georgia with Ilia as my guide and friend. I'm a pretty frequent traveler and I can definitely recommend Ilia's guiding: he is very well prepared on all aspects of his country, perfectly organized and also flexible to accommodate your requests. Most of all he loves what he does, you can see it everyday and this add the extra touch that will let you feel a guest way more than a tourist! Strongly recommended!"

"This is the second time that we tour Georgia with Ilia​​ - Travel Team Georgia. With him you see Georgia like you would never see it; from wine tasting, cheese making and tasting to felt making experience, everything was perfect. With Ilia you don’t feel like a stranger but a friend, a member of the family. We were 8 people and he was able to give the same attention to all of us, and he solved all the external factors issues we faced (due to corona) efficiently. Restaurants and hotels were properly chosen. I would highly recommend Him for your next trip to Georgia. We would definitely come back! Thank you again and see you soon."

"My wife and I had the pleasure of spending a week with Ilia in 2016, on a tour around Georgia, which incorporated Ushguli, Uplistskhe, Gori, Kakheti and the Davit Gareja monastery. I cannot find enough words with which to praise Ilia and his sheer level of professionalism. He was punctual, knowledgeable, friendly and always willing to make an extra effort to accommodate his guests in just about every conceivable way. He is clearly someone who values his standards and will ensure that his guests are looked after end-to-end. His English is impeccable, as is his all-round knowledge and level of courtesy. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Ilia to anyone who is lucky enough to visit Georgia!"

"My husband and I spent 9 days around Georgia in July 2017. Ilia was much more than our guide: the travel program had been set before but he managed to make it truly unforgettable. He is a first-rate professional, knows the places very well, can show the Country, its culture and history at its best. It was like travelling with a (very professional) friend from the very beginning. Many thanks Ilia, we hope to come back!"

"We had a perfect family trip in Georgia. Thank you so much to Ilia - our best tour guide. He is very informative and knowledgeable. He explained the history, cultures, traditions insight-fully and interestingly with his calm mellow voice so it's nice to listen to. Ilia is also caring, punctual, polite, and flexible. He took care of us friendly and at the same time professionally. He tried his best to make sure we enjoy the trip and visit all the places we had in the itinerary even that meant he had to accompany us until late night. He was willing to spend time with us to give information and engage us in the game he created. There were times that I made some changes on the itinerary and he was super nice and flexible to accommodate all the changes. I'd definitely recommend Ilia as the best tour guide".

"Ilia was an excellent tour guide for our family. He was so patient and flexible with us as we were traveling with young children. We made some incredible memories on our trip with Ilia and felt like he was part of our family. His knowledge of the different places he took us to and food choices at restaurants were beyond what we could have imagined. We highly recommend Ilia and highly recommend visiting Georgia!"

"Ilia is a very good guide. We were a group 3 friends and went to Kazbegi from Tbilisi with him. He showed us the nice villages and beautiful viewpoints on the way, organised everything for us, and explained everything about the monuments we were visiting. He also had great tips on restaurants which were amazing. His English is very good. We definitely recommend Ilia."
