About the Tour

If you want to learn about the everyday life of Georgians and the hidden histories of the German part of town, then this is the tour for you. From bazaars and flea markets to theaters and fine dining, I'll make sure you don’t miss out on a side of Tbilisi too many don’t see. I've lived in Tbilisi on and off for ten years and I’ve learnt all about its secret corners and hidden gems. I'm excited to share them with you.

The tour’s highlights include:

• The bazaar locals go to get farm fresh fruits and veggies
• The Dry Bridge and the secret behind its name
• The hidden gem under Dynamo Stadium
• The unfinished metro line station turned into an upscale lounge

Whether it's your first time in Tbilisi, or you're tired of the old town and are ready to explore a new neighborhood, this tour is for you.

Originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA, I've been on the road for over 10 years, and acting as a tour guide for the last 3 of those. Living in Prague and Tbilisi, I've traveled across Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa, and am always looking for the historical insight on any location and the weird anecdote that only locals ever seem to know. Now I'm sharing with you those stories and doing the best to connect the past with the present as we stroll down these streets together.

Major Landmarks

  • Dynamo Stadium

  • Marjanishvili Square
