  • Kalidas Iyer - 14/07/2018

    We had an pleasant trip with no complaints. We are extremely happy that we chose Georgia and Airborne as our partner in making this trip happen. Firstly, we want to compliment the service and warmth of Mr Edward, our tour guide. He was caring, flexible and informative at the same time. We would strongly recommend his presence to any of our friend's tours to Georgia. Further, our stay was very comfortable at Citadines with ease of access to nearby mall, restaurants and shopping areas ; not to ignore aspects of security. Our iterinary was drawn well too, with choice of iconic places, mix of nature and architecture with optimum time for rest between travel times. Overall, we had our happy moments and made great memories during the six days. We will be more than happy to recommend Airborne and your help specifically to our circles in their travels to Georgia and beyond. Thank You once again.
