What you'll do

* The Dezerter Bazaar is Tbilisi’s most unique and diverse food market. We meet up outside the market metro station and together with a shot of chacha I give you a short background about the history of the market and its significance for the city.

* Then its eating time! I walk you around the market taking in the sights, sounds and smells of this beautiful chaos. You will get to taste food/drinks at each of our 10 stops and get to meet the producer of each food, people who have worked there for 30+ years.

*The tour will include local pickles, local cheeses, dried fruit, fresh vegetables, spices, sweet treats and of course wine.
There will also be a few surprises along the way. The only thing you need to bring is a big appetite!

* We will end the session with a sit down meal at the BEST KHINKALI PLACE IN TBILISI. All in all, it's a great experience to find out about the food culture of Tbilisi whilst meeting new people.

Other things to note:
Please specify prior to the tour if you have any dietary requirements.
Dress appropriate for the weather.
Please bring a bottle of water and an empty stomach!

Big thanks to Keti for a really enjoyable & interesting tour. She gave us lots of insight from her time growing up & working in Tbilisi & we all benefited from her contacts. We visited a whole interesting places of Dezerter's bazaar. Interesting information provided throughout with fun & relaxed atmosphere. Would thoroughly recommend this to all Tbilisi visitors - one which reaches places other tours don’t reach. Thanks Keti!

The market tour was amazing! It gave us perspective on Georgian farming, shopping and eating and we had an opportunity to try various tastes. It was so good. Keti opened a new plast of flavours to us. Thank you so much!

Lots of choices to consider, but Keti's market tour is brilliant, and her passion and sense of fun, her innate hospitality are a treat. You'll hear cultural asides without condescension or judgment, just the insider's knowledge of the Georgian Way. She has an unerring instinct for zooming in on top grade ingredients. Absolutely wonderful tour!

We had a fantastic walk at the main Dezerter's bazaar, touring, tasting. Our tour guide was Keti, wonderful and young, she is so passionate about her country, food and tastes. She did a stellar job of describing the city and giving us some context. We tried interesting, real Georgian tastes. Bought a lot of spices and churchkelas(national sweets) for home:) Would recommend this in a heartbeat. One couple in our group had a baby and Keti did a great job. We all had fun and felt very comfortable. She is amazing. Thank youuu
