Rarely visited by modern tourists, the region was well-known to the ancient Greeks. Indeed, legend has it that Jason travelled to Georgia (Ancient Colchis) to seek out the Golden Fleece. Like us, the Argonauts would surely have marvelled at its snow-capped mountain peaks and forested river valleys. 

Georgia has an impressive archaeological record, rich in prehistoric monuments, Roman remains and monasteries of the Middle Ages. In addition to Classical sites, we discover Tbilisi ‘city of light’, dramatically-set mountain churches, and the more sobering birthplace of Stalin. Our Guide Lecturer for this tour, Ian Colvin has worked extensively in Georgia and shares his intimate knowledge of the history and culture of the Caucasus.
