We loved the great professional work of our guide Tato, his smile, his big cooperation with the Italian guide and the group. Bravo!
A day before arrival Ilia appeared to be unavailable. He arranged national certified guide Tato Nadiradze for us. Ilia did not manage to arrange the trip well and much was not clear, also due to change of plans because of the weather after a few days. We were very lucky with Tato who arranged everything well and got the very best out of it for us. We used his Landcruiser to drive where ever we went. Tato is a bery good mountainguide with lots of experience, especially in the Gudauri and Kasbegi area. He is also a good and enthousiastic free-rider. Gudairi hut is a fine hotel.
Bad communication with Explore-share. Did not get respons to my questions. Silence for two weeks even though i requested response. Terrific guide - Lasha.
Excellent week! Ilia and his local guide Bequ did a fantastic job.
We had a great week in Gudauri. Illia and David are great guides and organized a perfekt week for us. We can really recommend this trip and also the guides.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
