WholIy I was satisfied with the Sakura Travel Agency. I booked a one-day tour to Kazbegi to see a beautiful scenery. I recommend you to ask Sakura before you make a plan to travel Georgia for three reasons. 1. Kind support When I booked a tour online, I faced an issue on payment. I inquired by email and they supported me openheartedly, and the issue was solved. Sakura is eager to present Georgia’s attractiveness, so you can ask them about the country if you plan to visit there. 2. Flexible and comfort tours Since they took me to Kazbegi by car, it became more comfort than bus tours. In addition, as the tour was personalized, I was able to decide how long to spend time on each spot and the guide gave me some proposals for restaurants for lunch. 3. Hospitality Surely they will provide you detail explanations on the country’s history, culture, and the like. I learned many things that I could not know if I traveled alone. Furthermore, the driver and the guide treated me as a guest with intimacy. We had a lunch together and talked a lot. This hospitality made my trip superb. To end, I was happy to travel with Sakura. Thanks to them, I enjoyed Georgia and it became a precious memory.

次回もよろしくお願いします! 約1週間のジョージア旅行、加えて1日のアルメニア滞在で大変お世話になりました。この素晴らしい旅を私は一生忘れません。 初日にタムナさんとケーブルカーに乗って行ったムタツミンダ山、楽しかったです。レストラン『フニクラ』の焼きたてアジャルリハチャプリは絶品!帰り道に立ち寄ったママダビデ教会ではタムナさんと一緒に奇跡の湧き水を頂きました。 その後は4日間、ドライバーのザザさんにトビリシ~カズベギ~ボルジョミ~サパラ修道院~トビリシをずっと巡って頂きました。ザザさんは車上から写真を撮るとき撮りやすいようにスピードを落としてくれたり、暑いので水を買ってくれたり、レストランでは頼み方がわからない私達の為に一番美味しいメニューの組み合わせをお店に伝えてくれたり、至れり尽くせりでした。運転中ジョージアの音楽をかけてくれたり、ご実家の写真を見せて、伝統的なジョージアの家の様子や自家製ワインのつくり方を紹介してくれました。4日間の運転で疲れているはずなのに、私の下手なロシア語会話に嫌な顔ひとつせずお付き合い下さったのも感謝します。 アルメニアのエレバンでも、ステキなガイドのアンさんとドライバーさんをご紹介下さり助かりました。アララト山がきれいに見える1日でした。 タムナさんもザザさんも、ジョージア人として誇りがあり、自国の素晴らしさを私達旅行者に伝えたいという情熱を感じました。自分達が本当に良いと思うジョージアを私達に体験させて下さいましたね。日本に帰国してすぐ、またコーカサスを訪れたいと思ってしまいました。サクラトラベルさん、どうか次回もよろしくお願いします!それから友人達にもサクラトラベルさんを自信を持って推薦しておきますね!

In September 2018, we had a wonderful 11 days in Georgia. We organised the tour with Sakura, and I really cannot recommend them enough - they were suburb. Everything ran smoothly and to plan. The hotels they booked were perfect, and we left it to them to suggest the itinerary. This way they made sure that we got to see all the main attractions. My only regret is that we didn’t stay longer! We had a private driver called Levan who was very safe (the driving in Georgia is otherwise a bit scary), and our guide, Gari, was the perfect host. If you are thinking of visiting Georgia, (and you really should), then I highly recommend Sakura.
