My son and I waited 2 years to visit Tusheti , and it was definitely worth the wait. The tour was amazing and everything we could have hoped for. Roman did an excellent job driving the road - I almost backed out several times after watching the video of the drive but he was very reassuring and he knows the road well. The hikes were just challenging enough with beautiful views the whole time. The guest house was lovely and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this tour!! Less
