Luxury travel to Georgia

Published in Luxury Travel

Georgia is a country balanced between its historic past and burgeoning future. The monarchs here adopted Christianity early on as the state religion and ancient churches and monasteries perch atop rugged valleys, framed by a background of snow-capped peaks of the Caucasus Mountains, settings for the Greek myths of both the Golden Fleece and Prometheus. The picturesque shores and dark, deep waters of the Black Sea beckon holiday makers and dreamers. Its close proximity to Asia, the Middle East, and Europe made it a cultural crossroads throughout history and travelers, scholars, merchants and invaders arrived along the Silk Road.

The capital city, Tbilisi, is a bustling, growing city, with museums, universities, theaters, art galleries, and a busy cafe society. Bathe in the Ottoman-inspired hot springs, and explore the Old Town, a charming mix of wooden houses, open-air balconies and winding streets at the heart of the city. Mtshketa is one of the oldest cities and an ancient capital. It remains an important historical and religious center, with UNESCO World Heritage Sites and fabulous examples of fortresses, monasteries and castles. 

Tourism is burgeoning in Georgia, from ski resorts at Gudauri to beaches in Batumi, and in countless traditional towns and ancient sites in between. Its foodie culture of locally sourced ingredients and world-class dishes brings travelers and gourmets from around the world. Known as the birthplace of wine, archaeological evidence dates back to the 6th century. Georgia grows hundreds of varieties of grapes especially in the Khaketi region and produces fine wines, brandies, and cognacs. Visit Georgia with us in the company of chefs, artisans, winemakers, and musicians. Hospitality is a way of life here and every visitor becomes an honored guest.

This five-day luxury tour to the Georgian Republic includes spectacular Tbilisi, legendary Mtskheta, breathtaking Kazbegi and the wine centers of Sighnaghi, Velistsikhe, Kisiskhevi, Tsinandali, and Gombori.

Feel the dynamics of culture and history on explorations of ancient and contemporary churches, synagogues and mosques, and through UNESCO World Heritage sites. Bathe in Ottoman-inspired hot springs in the Abanotubani district of Tbilisi, savor wines made according to centuries’ old methods on an estate set amongst terraced vineyards in Kakheti. Feast your eyes on fantastic views of mythical Mount Kazbegi with your gourmet lunch, and learn the time-honored art of Georgian enamel making at an historic cloisonné studio.

Georgia has everything you've ever dreamed of in a luxury destination at the crossroads of culture, history and continents.

Published in Luxury Travel

Mongolia is a land of vast horizons of steppe and desert bordered by remote, pristine mountain ranges. Famous for its untamed landscapes, Mongolia is a dream for the outdoor adventurer and a warm, welcoming destination for all travelers. The land of Chinggis and Kublai Khan, the Mongolian Empire once extended east to Korea, south to Vietnam and west to Hungary and its warriors were feared and ruthless conquerors. Rarely accessible to the outside world until recently, travelers are discovering the natural gifts of this amazing country; wide open vistas, unparalleled star gazing, horseback riding, fossil hunting, and overnights in traditional round yurts or gers in a land of rosy-cheeked smiles! An oasis of unspoiled beauty between China and Russia, Mongolia has one of the sparsest population densities in the world and a culture dominated by Tibetan Buddhism, shamanism, and nomadic culture. Even Marco Polo was at a loss for words to describe all he'd seen there.
All visits to Mongolia start in the capital city of Ulaan Baatar, set in the valley of the Tuul River. It is home to a third of the nation's population and tradition thrives among blocks of Soviet-era architecture and suburbs of gers. Tuts –small independently owned street kiosks line the streets, milk is sold out of old-fashioned farm cans and devotees spin Buddhist prayer wheels in the temples.
