          2000km in two weeks-private tour
          Tsotne organized this private tour for us which included a large variety of experiences in different regions of the country . The logistics were perfect and the accommodations were all very comfortable. However it was the company of our driver George who tackled difficult and often congested roads with calm confidence and our informative and friendly guide Otto who made the holiday so memorable. If you are looking for a tailor made ,off the beaten track tour of Georgia, look no further and don’t forget to ask for the George and Otto team

          Traffic Travel did a fabulous job. A big thank you to Tsotne and guide Shotiko. We enjoyed the trip so much that we can't wait to go back soon to re visit Georgia. Every single detail was taken care of.

          Toll Charges -
          visited Bay City in June 2023. Must have crossed a toll bridge becuase 1 year later i received a toll bill. While i don't dispute i crossed this bridge ($5.50 toll), they charged me $15.00 for late fee. Never received bill from city prior to this notice. Seems like a scam. Guess i will cross Bay City off my list on untrust worthy places to visit.

          Unforgettable Trip Organized by Traffic Travel
          I saw the high rating of their services on Tripadvisor so I contacted them directly via email for a private tour departing from Kutaisi, not from Tbilisi. Tsotne, the CEO, wrote to me with a suggested itinerary - we exchanged emails to modify it to my likings, and he patiently helped to modify and confirm. I usually travel without engaging with a travel agency, but since I had my mom (65+) and my son (7), I wanted it to be smooth and stress-free, so I decided to engage with them. When we arrived, we were welcomed by the guide Otto and the driver George - from there, we had an amazing time the entire time. We all had different preferences - I wanted history and hiking, my son wanted adventure and snow, and my mom wanted to learn as many thing as possible about Georgia, despite her limitation of speaking English. All of our wishes were made true! The trip was pleasant and memorable for all of us - we could visit many places, learned about the diversity of the history in different places, and enjoyed every moment! Driving from a place to a place was long, but Otto's intriguing history tellings and George's funny comments made the driving super fun. My favorite was a hike we did in Mestia - we hiked for 3.5 hours in total, which was perfect for all of us. The entire trip was peaceful, smooth and informative - we fell in love with the beautiful Georgia and its rich nature, culture, history, culinary and kind people. Highly recommend if anyone wants an unforgettable trip :)

          I would like to express my gratitude to one of the best Tour guide and such a humble soul, Tsotne. Also to mention how insightful our tour was as he never let us feel like we are tourist or we have to listen to him, He throughout made us comfortable with his jokes and humor. He is such a Knowledgeable person who will make your trip worth remembering with his charisma. Highly recommended.

          Simply Magical and Will Make You Speechless
          I’m so glad that I took this trip! Tusheti is such an off-the-beat trip and I love everything about this trip: the magical sceneries, the off-the-beat road, the people I met, the small-village life, and so on. Giorgi, being my guide + driver for the entire 3 days, was excellent. He was professional, entertaining, and a great person to spend the 3 days with. Everything about this trip is just so memorable and I can’t wait to go there again in the future!

          Amazing Tour
          This is an extraordinary place! The beauty of the landscape should not be missed. Really an incredible place. Our guide Kahka was really just AWSOME. He organized everything perfectly and guided us on incredible walks and hiking, wonderful lodging and meals. He was very knowledgeable on so many topics and history. While this trip is not inexpensive, it is well worth it many times over! And the main tour operator was also first class, responsive and very helpful planning (Traffic Travel LLC). Don’t miss this trip if you are in Georgia!!

          Wonderful Day Best Experience
          Traffic Travel was the best decision I took for the trip to Gudauri. The tour is as described very friendly, very professional, safe and worthwhile. Our guide Otto was a pleasant guy explained every single bit about the places we visited. We were able to hold conversation with him the entire trip. He spoke very clearly and passionately about the life in Georgia and various other things. After our tour asked him some details about touring the city by ourselves and he gave us some insight into it. Will definitely travel with them again next time and 100% recommend them. Very lucky to have found them.

          Great tbilisi holiday with family and worlds best guide! Be travelers not tourists !
          One of my best holidays ! We chose to go to Georgia partially due to reviews i read here. And Tsotne with his flawless planning ensured it was. He showed us winemaking, mountains, glaciers, caves, rivers everything ! Great time with family and Tsotne is not a tour guide... he is a friend ...one who wants to give us a travel experience ! we will go again for sure !

          Worked with Tsone to bring a small group of ladies on a wine tour and it was beyond amazing! From start to finish he took care of us and made sure everything was perfect. He is the best of the best when it comes to guiding. So patient, so kind, always thinking of how to make an experience extra special. We’re still raving about our trip. I feel very lucky to have found him and you will too!

        From the moment you make a booking and get a message from the owner of the company, you get the sense that you are in the hands of professionals. And once you actually go on the tour, you realize how true this is.

        We had the pleasure of having Shalva as our tour guide. He was 15 minutes earlier than our pick-time which was great. His car was spacious, clean, and very comfortable to ride in. His knows the city well and knows the roads even better. Though driving in Georgia can be quite hectic for those that are not used to it, Shalva is a calm, safe, and professional driver so you always feel that you are in good hands.

        Furthermore, his English skills are superb. We had such a good time conversing with him all throughout the tour. He was quick to point out historic landmarks along the way and he really knows his country quite well. Being a knowledgeable and intelligent person is just one part of what made this tour experience so fantastic for us.

        The experience of going into a private families home to drink their locally made wine and have lunch served by them is truly one of a kind. Everyone we met along the way was so welcoming and hospitable. We got to see the beautiful scenery Georgia is known for and were able to sample a number of different delicious wines. The experience felt like it was personalized to us which is exactly what you would expect from a private tour.

        My final verdict is that this is a must-do tour in Georgia. It is absolutely worth the money and time and you will walk away totally enriched by the culture and history of this beautiful country.

        Our guides Saku and Tsotne were excellent, really knowledgeable, friendly and the tour they have cultivated gave us a rounded insight into the region and the differences between boutique, local and factory wine making.

        The views, the welcoming and friendly hosts and the Family lunch at Vaxo’s were all phenomenal.

        Our driver / guide stopped off to allow us time to soak up the views and highlights along the way.

        We would all highly recommend Traffic Travel for this tour and we wouldn’t think twice about using them again for tours when we come back to Georgia.

        We have nothing but praises with Tsotne who was our guide and owner of Traffic Travel. He was very responsive and gave us thorough information prior our booking. On the day of the tour, we were very impressed how well-oriented, proficient and very passionate he is in this field of work. We got fully immersed in their history, culture, FOOD, how organic Georgian wines are made, and a lot more! The itinerary was followed, as stated, in normal pacing. Each stop was unforgettable as it gave us unique experiences. We booked a private tour, yet we are so glad that we bumped into his colleague Zuka, who was also on a private tour with a sweet couple. As we have the same itinerary, both parties decided to go together in each stop. The lunch at Vakho's family winery was our top favorite! Their food was top notch! And here, when they said wine tasting, it's more than just that, so you better be prepared in this tour. :D

        Overall what an amazing experience! Well recommended! Once we go back, we will definitely set a visit, this time in Tsotne's own family winery. Thank you again!

        The trip was so good that even writing the review gets me excited again.I choose this private tour for my partner and I to celebrate my birthday and I have to say that it was a great choice. The communication, pick up, location selection to show a variety of wine and guide knowledge was impecable. But what made this a truly memorable experience was the warmth and friendliness of our guide Kakha.He made us feel like we came to visit an old friend or a familly member. The highlight of the trip was the lunch experience, surrounded by the hosts genuine hospitality and incredible food. Getting together around the table with another couple and their guide (from the same company,David) allowed us to experience a glimpse of what a supra may be.By the end of the tour...we felt like familly.
        We both would be happy to take the tour again just to meet everyone a second time like David said: First time as guests, second time as friends

        Excellent full day wine tour, inclusive of a delicious, homemade lunch with a local family (including homemade wine). We ventured out into the countryside and villages, enjoying organic wine with a view of the gorgeous Caucasus mountains. Our guide Oto was fantastic - warm, welcoming, informative, conversational - it was like traveling with a good friend. A great experience that not only touched on Georgian wine but also Georgian history and culture.

        Definitely the best money I spent in Georgia! Our guide Tsotne Japaridze made us feel at home the whole day, we eat food from high scale restaurant and also from people that make bread and cheese at the side of the road. the wine selection was amazing, the host had the courtesy to send us pictures he took during the trip, even knowing we took our pictures. Very well explained, we never felt forced to buy anything, just enjoy our day. We took this tour in February 2018. Me and my husband still remember our day together in Kakheti as one of the peaks of our life together. Thank you Tsotne!

        This wine tour was incredible. The stops that were chosen were very intimate and gave you a great feel of the local Georgian culture. The bread and cheese, the wineries themselves and most importantly the traditional Georgian lunch at Vajkho's family home. This was my absolute favorite part of the experience. Amazing hospitality and excellent food and wine. Our guide Kakha was super knowledgeable and engaging. Make sure you request him if you take this tour. We have another trip to Georgia planned for the summer with our family and we'll be taking this tour again.

        As far as I know our tour was the first tour since the pandemic began but Kakha didn't miss a beat. Seamless experience and fantastic time!

        We had so much fun on this tour! Tsotne (who we lovingly called Toe) felt like one of our friends rather than just a tour guide – although of course he was armed with all the local knowledge as well! It was such a good way to get out of the city and see local life, try roadside freshly baked bread, cheese and wine, and enjoy a huge lunch in a family vineyard. We tried so many delicious wines and laughed the whole day long. Pick up and drop off was seamless. Tsotne was also helpful with bar/restaurant recommendations we asked for and even hooked me up with another tour guide for my follow on trip to Armenia. Thanks Traffic Travel – it was great!

        We had the best time on this tour of the Kakheti wine region. A group of three women we had an amazing guide called Tsotne who by the end was a good friend of ours. The three wine stops are perfect, very varied and give a nice mixture of how wine is produced in Georgia. The first stop for bread and cheese was delicious and we sat happily in the sun enjoying red wine for some time.
        The small production family vineyard was so welcoming and the lovely couple again made fantastic food. Basically if you love food, love wine and want to have a full day learning so much about Georgian history, culture and of course wine, I can 100% recommend this tour. Worth every penny.

        From the simple booking service, the follow up from Traffic Travel, collection / return to hotel administration was perfect. The Tour itself - EXCEPTIONAL.
        The commentry, the wine, the food, the wine, the views, the wine, the knowledge, the wine the whole day is a must do experience and a will do again.
        The lunch with Vahko at his family winery is worth a day alone - thank you for the hospitality.
        PS did i mention the wine :-)
        We shall return.
        Thank you so much.
