We're now just in the phase of planning, but there are some questions needed to be answered by experts. We would like to spend 7 or 8 days in Georgia, and the first question is about the base cities. Which is better: Tbilisi for a week, or Tbilisi (5 days) & Batumi (2-3 days)? We want to do day trips but also have some lazy days: just strolling in Tbilisi or Batumi. But we would like to see the mountains - Kazbegi, Borjomi, Gori, Mtskheta, maybe Kakheti region, etc. (any further recommendations?). We're thinking about the private driver/public transport problem also: what do you recommend? And for a private driver: what to expect for such day trips?
For Batumi: that's a big question now, because if we would like to spend there a couple of days, should we go by Airzena Georgian Airways to and back or lose full days travelling? Or just drop Batumi and concentrate on Tbilisi base (we can make the trip 6 days long as well)?
So now we're a bit confused on how to plan this trip :-).
And the timing: we should go in July or in October. Which is better? What are the pros and cons at that times?
Thank you very much for all the answers!
