Hiring a Tour Guide in Georgia
Georgia is indeed a beautiful, diverse, and eclectic country in nearly every way imaginable. From its landscape, to its food, to its wine, to its UNESCO World Heritage Sites, our country offers something for everyone! But navigating all that Georgia has to offer can sometimes be a challenge for tourists and so we highly recommend that you consider hiring a tourist guide for your visit here! Not only can a guide help you to discover our often hidden treasures and be a wealth of knowledge, but they’ll also be able to assist you in language translations, recommend accommodation/restaurants, and safely navigate you through Georgian traffic! Here are your options for arranging a Tour Guide for your visit to Georgia:
- Contact a Guide Directly
It’s absolutely normal and okay to choose a qualified guide in your preferred language and region and contact them directly via email or phone to arrange the details of your tour. The terms of payment will also be discussed at this time. Typically payment is done prior to the tour via bank transfer, credit, or cash, depending on the individual guide. Although not required, it’s customary for tourists to tip their guides at the end of the tour. NOTE! The Tour Guiding Profession is not yet a regulated licensed profession in Georgia which means that anyone can call themselves a guide. For this reason it’s HIGHLY recommended that you choose a guide that belongs to the Georgian Association of Tour Guides, which is a reflection of the guide’s educational and professional guiding level.
