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.
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.
We had a amazing days in Gudauri. Ilia and David are great guides and made this trip unforgetable.
We spent an exceptional week in Svaneti. Ilia guided us safely all around the valley. The place is wonderful and
exceptionally well preserved. Villages are just out of time and still protected from mass tourism. they should definitly be visited soon… We enjoyed extraordinary views and gigantic landscapes, followed by endless descents in superb snow… Ilia’s reputation clearly precedes him among all the guides who consider him as a reference. One recommendation : Get there soon and enjoy this beautiful region!
We had a fantastic trip in Svaneti with our guide Ilia who is a very professional and nice person. We
were blessed by his kindness. He is a very patient, experienced and passionate person. Svaneti is a really beautiful region, wild and remote. I would advice staying more than a week as it takes quite some time to reach the mestia valley. The villages are vey harming and accommodation is quite good. There are thousands of ski tour possibilities and we were most of the time alone. Georgian people are great..and the food is fantastic ! I would definitively recommend the trip and our guide Ilia.
Mestia and in particular Ushguli provided for a remarkable context to this amazing, off the beaten track skiing trip. The
pictures speak for themselves: it is developing quickly but is nevertheless a place frozen in time, where cows and donkeys far outnumber cars and the Caucasus provides for an imposing backdrop. Georgian hospitality was fantastic and Ilia made sure we were well looked after at all times, on and off the slope. We felt very safe enjoying the copious amounts of powder that was falling the week we were there. We kept on bumping into groups of people who had been guided by him in prior seasons and felt compelled to visit again – and something tells me we might join those ranks soon too…
Mestia in the Svaneti region will not remain an idem gem for long. It’s got it all: alpine descents, all-you-can-ski
powder and remote villages charged with history. Illia was a great guide both in and out of the slopes; safe, fun and knowledgeable. And do not worry about the food, it is amazing!
Absolutely loved our trip to Georgia. In short: incredibly pittoresque villages, wonderful people, amazing food, stunning scenaries, ridiculous powder (some
of the best snow ever!), and a very friendly, professional and experienced ski guide. You will always feel safe with Ilia. What more does one need? I highly recommend a trip to the beautiful Svaneti region.
Victoria van Lennep for Svaneti 11-day ski tour in Georgia
Very poor english is reason to poor guide rating. Not showing up at meeting location in the morning is reason to
poor guide rating. ( lost 2h of guiding, with still full price charged) 2 start for trip rating also connected with poor english and late arrival. 2 start for trip rating also connected to additional cost for taxi when being brought back to resort. That was expected to be included. In general very slow responses from the guide during booking procedure, and also when being on the resort. All in all; did not meet our expectations. You can’t sell guide services with guides not being even a little bit fluent in English, Best regards OIa
We loved the great professional work of our guide Tato, his smile, his big cooperation with the Italian guide and
the group. Bravo!

Would have been difficult To find those places without a good guide. Recommend.
(1) We are all very happy with the experience. Everyone got a real feeling to at least some of the
mountaineering life aspect. (2) Guides were all great and we had a great time + learned quite a bit in a very short time. (3) We got as far as each of us could this time. One of us reached the summit – others had to stop at different stages – but that is all part of the adventure. Overall very happy and definitely see a value in a service like Explore-Share.
