This tour was brilliant for seeing a great variety of Tbilisi, rather than just the sugar coated old town. Tornike the guide had broad knowledge and imparted a lot of local and Georgian history through the buildings and various areas. I especially enjoyed the adventure into a secret derelict space, the highwalk between the apartment blocks (proper local - not the sort of place you'd just wander into, though perfectly safe) and the very authentic feeling cafeteria visit with a wide spread of delicious food for lunch.

This was a fantastic tour taking us everywhere from old Italian courtyards to outside of the city. The guide was passionate and knowledgeable and the tour was a highlight of my stay

Excellent tour guided by Tornike, to many locations that might be difficult to cover in a day otherwise. You start off in the old city at Pushkin Square before heading out out of the old city. Our small group had lots of questions about the complexity (and difficulties) of urban regeneration in Tbilisi and Tornike was both patient and also very knowledgeable. It's a great complement (and contrast) to the free walking tours of old-town Tbilisi.

An excellent tour that started in the center of Tbilisi and extended far out. Our guide Maurice was a “no holds barred” type of guy which was great and he thoroughly explained the modern culture of Tbilisi and why T’bilisi is the way it is. From there we went to several locations which were all entirely brutal in different ways, including brutal lunch service at a cafeteria. :) The highlight for me was the apartment block with the elevator that went to the 14th floor with no stops in between and the walkways that stretched in through them. Tbilisi is hard to get a read on, it is complex and multi layered. The more I learned, the more questions I had. It’s that kind of place. We never would have thought to go to any of these places so this tour was perfect and I highly recommend it. There’s enough grit to keep any seeker satisfied. If you are in any way out of shape and can’t climb hills, stairs, or cross uneven terrain, it’s not the tour for you. If you are wimpy or prissy, it’s not your tour either. In any case, wear sensible shoes and clothing and groove on the brutality of it all.

We saw about 7 different spots in about 6 hours, our guide Tornike was super flexible, friendly and knowledgeable, I especially loved the abandoned water tank where we had to crawl in! The tour took us to quite far areas which would be difficult to mix on your own in the same day. We also had amazing time with the locals we met along the way, they invited us for drinks and a chat! If you like Brutal architecture, this tour is the best thing you can go for in Tbilisi! Thanks again!
