Visa

Residents of more than 90 countries do not need a visa to visit Georgia. These include Russia, the CIS countries, the EU countries, etc. Please consult our manager for details.

Currency

Georgia`s national currency is the Georgian Lari (GEL). Payments are mostly made in local currency, except for some markets or small shops, where Rubles, US dollars or Euros can be accepted, though at the worst rate.

It is better to exchange currency in Georgia in banks or exchange offices. As a rule there is a couple of bank offices in every small Georgian town where currency exchange is available. In Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, exchange offices are located near the subway station. Mostly demanded foreign currencies are US dollars and Euros.

Climate

The best time to visit Georgia is spring and early summer (May - June) as well as early autumn (September). This is the time when the weather in most of the Georgian regions is comfortable - not too hot, but quite warm and sunny. Travelling in summer is recommended for those who would like to spend their vacation on the Black Sea coast; mountains and sea breezes ease the heat here.

One can roughly divide Georgia into 3 climatic zones: Western Georgia features a milder climate, warm winter and hot, humid summer. Eastern Georgia is known for its cold winter and dry summer. In Central Georgia between them, it is not as cold in winter as, for example, in Eastern Georgia, and summer is not as hot as it is in the West.

Taxi

Taxi in Georgia is quite convenient for long-distance trips - for example, from one side of the city to the other. Local taxi is also frequently used to travel from one city to another or for sightseeing tours. If you don’t need to go far when in Georgia, you may use public transport or have a walk.

There are not so many official taxis in Georgia yet, but you will see plenty of cars with a checker pattern on their roofs in the streets. Taking such private taxi is easy - just stand on the roadside and wave a hand; these taxis are also available in the busy areas of the city, such as near subway stations, markets and shopping centers.

Before taking a private taxi, make sure you agree upon a route and a price. Many drivers try to quote a higher price hoping that tourists will unknowingly accept it.

If you call to an official taxi service, the price is usually stated by the operator. When you are in the car, you can discuss the final price and the route with the driver. Most official taxis are equipped with taximeters.

Cuisine

Georgia is a small paradise for gourmets. Traditional Georgian cuisine features a variety of flavors, combinations of ingredients, cooking techniques as well as significant regional differences.

Wine

“Georgian wine” sounds like a brand, because it is is the brand of Georgia indeed. Georgia and the wine are inseparable, and if you go to Georgia, any guide will recommend you to try it, even if you are not fond of wines. Wines can be different: white and red, bad and good, sweet and sour, strong and low alcohol, but none of these characteristics apply to Georgian wine, because it is special.
