Hospitality and the Caucasus: Why a journey through Central Asia is an easy sell

Is hospitality and a swell ol’ cultural time high on your clients’ travel list? A tour of the Caucasus could be a surprise pick for a delightful dose of warm Central Asian society.

With four spellbinding countries straddled between the Caspian and Black Seas, the Caucasus are reportedly home to some of the most hospitable people in the world – alongside stunning scenery and breathtaking architecture to boot.

On the Highlights of the Caucasus tour, your clients will begin their journey in Georgia’s capital city Tbilisi, for a day of exploration highlighted by visits to Old Town, Sioni and the Metekhi Churches.

From here, the trip moves to Kakheti, where your clients will have the opportunity to visit a traditional winemaker to learn about the traditions of Georgian viticulture, whose methods of production are enshrined by UNESCO. It is believed that wine-making began here some 8,000 years ago.
