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.
