Your host speaks:

Georgian, English

I am a qualified guide who works specifically around the Soviet Heritage and pastime issues. I am determined to raise awareness about the Soviet-era (specifically 1970s) architectural & mosaic art and save those masterpieces in Georgia. My education is also connected to my job - Cultural Studies / Soviet History studies.Due to the experiences and knowledge gained at Chai Khana and National Geographic Georgia I can provide still unknown and hidden stories about the near past of my country under the Soviet regime. Hopefully, the job I do will help my country to raise awareness about the red terror on one hand and on the other hand will be a lever for some to save the artifacts of those times.

The walking tour with David was great. I felt like I got a true understanding of the Soviet era. We went places that I would have never been able to find myself and heard stories along the way that tied everything together.

Highly recommend! If you like unique and are looking for an active 5 hours you will enjoy this fun look at a lot of the stress sights and neighbourhoods. The Buildings and stories behind them a wonderful, truly works of art. David was specific about details and supplies prior to the trip. During the trip he was informative and had supplies if needed. He was great. With a good spirit you will have a great time.
