Vladimir was our guide for summiting of Mount Kazbegi in July, 2019. He was a brilliant guide, as well as champion snow boarder, and I would highly recommend him for anyone planning climbing Kazbegi or Elbrus.

Guide Vano was very good. Proficiency in English would be beneficial. Trip to Mount Kazbek was good, but time schedule for eating would be useful. Because when reaching the top we discovered that we were starving. The food what they offered in the basecamp was awesome. The toilet in the basecamp was terrible. First, it was too far from the main house, because if you had to go at the middle of the night then you had to put all your clothing on. And second, the cleanliness. Someone should keep an eye for it. And at all the basecamp rooms where not that clean.

Giorgi was safety focused and responsible throughout the trip. Although we didn't manage to summit, he clearly explained why it was dangerous to attempt. Good, constant reminders to communicate any discomfort and also observant regarding the client's confirm. Calm and fact oriented decision making at every level, not carried away by emotion. A great guide.

We had the chance to climb Mount Kazbek in Georgia last July under a wonderful weather. It was a real pleasure to make this tour with Ilia, who was extremely professional, efficient and safety-driven all along the journey. It was also very pleasant to discuss with him to discover more about Georgia and the surroundings
