Tura Tours

Tura Tours is the new touring service introduced this year from Hostel Tura. Our area of expertise is in the southern Kakheti region and photogenic trips across southern Georgia from Kakheti across Kvemo Kartli, Samtskhe-Javakheti and the Adjarian mountains.
One is a hiking trip near Lagodekhi national park. It's a five hour hike (2 1/2 there, 2 1/2 back) once you arrive and you get to a 150 meter waterfall where we have a small picnic and during the summer, swimming!
Another is around Dedoplistlkaro, where we visit Eagles canyon, Khornabuji castle and St. Ilia church.
The third is a tour of little known cave monasteries near the Iori river in the Garedji wilderness. It's a spectacular and photogenic trip where we see: Didi Kvabebi where you can find hundreds of pieces of ancient broken pottery littering the area, Kolagiri which has some wonderful frescos still visible, Sabereebi, which has 2 different complexes and one them also has some frescos (we have not seen that one as of yet) and Satorge monasteries.
We also offer a quick day trip to the main monastery of Davit Garedji (the one you see in pictures). This includes a picnic. This trip is best done in conjunction with the above trip but if short on time it gives a wonderful peek into the golden age of Georgia.
In a month or so we will also have a 3 or 4 day trip across the south of Georgia that begins in Signagi and will take us as far as either Batumi or Borjomi, depending on which you prefer.
It will feature either camping or guesthouses depending on how much "roughing it" you would like to do.
