The tour starts in Istanbul. From here, the gateway to Asia, travels go along the Black Sea coast as far as Batumi in Georgia. The remains of different eras can be discovered on the way. Via Kutaisi, the most important city in West Georgia, one goes on into the heartland to the capital Tiflis.

During this tour, you see a lot of sights, but also the wonderful mountains with their diversified flora and impressive landscape. Excursions with the minibus to Gori or to the Mount Kasbek give the drivers who are often strained on this tour the possibility to relax and enjoy. Anatolia can keep up: Deep green valleys, plateaus and mountains – the most famous are probably the Ararat and the volcano Nemrut.

Hike on the great Lake Van, see the remains of thousands of years old cultures and be impressed by unusual nature phenomenon such as the Göreme valley in Cappadocia. Here, the tour ends with the possibility for further exploration according to own interests or for well-deserved relaxation.

 

You will get to know very hospitable, indigent and simple-minded – but not unhappy – people. The circumstances, traditions and infrastructure partly are still like hundreds of years ago - a challenge also for us.

This tour does not take place every year. If you are interested, get in touch with office@mir-tours.de.
