Tbilisi to Kazbegi day trip by marshrutka ?

Is it possible in one day by public transport ? As I am a solo traveler private tours are too expensive , and I want to make a tour on my own.

It will be perfect to take a marshrutka to Kazbegi in the early morning and come back to Tbilisi in the evening.

Is there any marshrutkas timetable ?

Спасибо :)

Possible, but I wouldn't recommend this. It's a long drive there and back, and you won't have much time in Kazbegi. I'd rather spend a night there.

Marshrutkas leave from Didube station in Tbilisi. There's no timetable, the bus leaves when full ;) Sometime you'll wait only 5 minutes, but it can also be 30 minutes or a hour, hard to say. To get back, may be useful to make a reservation, as sometimes buses get full very fast or all seats could be pre-booked. If you decide to spend a night in Kazbegi, your host could probably help you book a seat. If you speak Russian, you won't have any difficulties at all :)

In order to save money, you can join some group tours. Many agencies organize them.

If you plan to see Kazbegi only, you can take marshrutka. If you would like to see all the sights on the Georgian Military road, like Jinvali, Ananuri fort, Gudauri ski resort, Friendships monument at the Cross pass and others, it´s better to take an organized tour. In this case also doublecheck with the organizer, which stops are included!

Hi Ayesha,

yes, of course it´s possible. The drive from Tbilisi to Kazbegi takes about 3-3,5h. So you can easily stop at all sights on the way and even spend a few hours in Kazbegi and then head back to Tbilisi the same day.
