What you'll do

We will meet near one of the oldest farmer's markets where we can try the majority of Russian goodies which people sell there. Near the food market, one of the best Georgian restaurants is located. The food there is unique, authentic and extremely popular with locals. There we will try khachapuri - very tasty Caucasian cheesy pizza, khinkali - Georgian dumplings, traditional lemonade and Georgian moonshine. After this, we will head to a speakeasy wine bar, which is famous with locals for its great variety of Russian wines, believe me, Russian wine is worthy! Also, we will try specialities that are produced on local farms. On our way to the bar, I will show you old and charming buildings, streets, places, and tell you the history that hides behind them! After this bar we will continue our historical walking tour, we will go through the beaten tracks highlights of the city centre and end our tour in one of the best bars, where we will try not only Russian alcohol drinks but learn the history of the Russian banquet and traditional Russian distillates followed by some buckwheat popcorn. Doesn't this sound great and worth a try?! =)

We won’t visit any famous touristic places during this tour, we will show you places that locals know and love. The menu is based on favourite local goodies: fresh farmer products, Georgian cuisine, wine, and of course strong alcohol.
