Although you will be with a guide, you’ll be more of a traveler than a tourist. Our guests are not merely observers in the Caucasus, but to a certain extent participants. We visit offbeat landmarks and authentic settlements where travelers show up a couple of times a year. We learn about arts and crafts not in museums, but directly from artisans.
When we were just starting to explore the Caucasus we were bursting with curiosity. To find the most hospitable people, to taste the most savory dish, to outdo the locals in saying toasts, to try our hand at various crafts, to climb the highest mountains, and to learn about architecture. It was in the Caucasus that we straddled horses for the first time and became wine connoisseurs. We read books on history and culture of the Caucasus to feel confident about the information we share with tourists and use in our guidebooks.
When we founded Caucasus Explorer, our intention was to share our expertise in exploring the Caucasus with other people. We tried to fit our experience and knowledge of the Caucasus even into our shortest week-long tours. So we offer our guests our vision and feeling of the Caucasus so that they could discover their own.
After this trip you will have every right to say: “I have seen the Caucasus!”
