These hostels in the country of Georgia make it easy to plan and visit this small, historic and mysterious alpine country.
Georgia (not to be confused with the state) is an incredible country still largely unknown to the English-speaking West. It is a land of breathtaking natural beauty with plenty to see and do in both winter and summer. Georgia is the definition of an alpine and historic paradise with eye-catching alpine monasteries and delicious cuisine.
Some of the hostels in this small country not only offer great accommodation and a “hostel vibe”, but will also help anyone plan their trip to this crowded country. Georgian food (considered one of the best in the USSR) alone is enough to attract many people.
Envoy Hostel And Tours Tbilisi
Envoy Hostel and Tours caters to everyone and offers everything from tours to all the major attractions in the eastern half of Georgia to village tours. They only offer their tours in English.
Their village tours are not what one would expect. These are not overly commercialized villages where the locals are used to tourists. Instead, they go to the villages around the place in advance and approach the locals and ask them if they would like to receive international guests. Once village hosts are confident enough to open their own guest house, the hostel finds new hosts for whom hosting international guests will also be a whole new experience.
