Skiing in Gudauri and Mestia was great. The snow is great, and the vast landscape is unique. We will be back.

Sharmistha Sen (India)

The eclectic architecture and breathtaking natural beauty of the Caucasian region would have remained unknown to me if not for this awesome MyCaucasus travel portal.

Simon Stahl (USA)

We had a great group. I still have contact with all six. We have already agreed that we will come back next year. Then it will be a wine tour through Kakheti.

Sylvana Flores (USA)

I will never forget our trip through the mountains of Tusheti. The landscape was unique, though the absolute highlights were the warm encounters with the locals.
