Barbara and I were so excited to share our memories of the 2011 Monastery Tour with all of our friends, especially those having a sense of adventure and an interest in not-so-well-known countries.
Your tour is by far the most interesting we have experienced. We tell friends we enjoyed every aspect of the tour. Possibly most notable was the tradition of Georgian hospitality, which necessarily includes the absolutely delicious food and wine. Visiting ancient monasteries and seeing the beauty of historically important architecture and frescoes was also tremendously rewarding.
The Georgian singing, whether impromptu at the conclusion of a meal or arranged in a cathedral, added a level of cultural appreciation not possible in any other group. We highly recommend this tour to our friends.
