Together with three friends I went on a four day hiking trip in Svanetia. This trip was perfectly organised by Highlander Travel / Rusidan. Rusidan also organised all the needed transportation. First of all she choose a very good, experienced guide. He brought us to the best places and really good family guesthouses. He was flexible as well when - due to snow and possibilities of avalanches - our original trip had to be changed. Furthermore she arranged very good all the needed transportation: - taxi from airport to trainstation - traintickets for nighttrain to Zugdidi - taxi from Zugdidi to Mestia - taxi from Mestia back to Tbilisi. All the taxi-drivers were helpful and very accurate. Rusidan knows who she works with: very good and very reliable guides and taxi-drivers. Less
