I never been there. But I met a few very poor people from Georgia. And also during the winter probably weather is freezing there. Think twice before you decide.

Tbilisi is very beautiful city.Presently its winter and temperature is between 1-5C. I visited last month and it was very pleasant.
For visa no need to go to here in embassy.Visa is on arrival at Tbilisi airport and there is no visa charges for us who has Kuwait Ekama.
You need to carry with you kuwait Civil ID original,Return Tkt, Travel insurance and Hotel Booking.

I was there in Georgia in the last week of dec 2016. I did a 7 day trip from 24th to 31st dec.
You can email me at adhocsignovinces(at) for details.
We did a complete customized tour plan with Georgian Holidays Tour Operator. They did an excellent job with the tour, and all arrangements from Hotel Booking, to tour plan, and daily meals and guide/driver, hotel transfers from 1 place to another..everything very smoothly and efficiently by them

Mail me and I shall gv you my fb photo link to check out the photos of Georgian Landscape.

Dear Wayfarer,
Can you please tell me how much is the overall expenses and thru which tour operator you planned your trip. Please mail me the details [email protected]

Posted On 1/31/2017 11:17:00 PM by Wayfarer

Yes, we enjoyed our 3-day itinerary. Moreover, since it was extremely cold/snow in some regions, other areas were not preferred at this time of the year. We only wanted to experience Snow and that was fully experienced during our 3 day trip in Georgia

@nagesh menon...
Will forward the details to your email later in the day, as they are with my spouse.

Oh, by the way, we visited Gudauri on 8 Jan 2017 and visited Tbilisi city on 10 Jan 2017. Though, we were completely dressed with woollen innerwear, usual attire, winter overjacket, headcap and boots, it was extremely cooooold for us.
So, gear up accordingly before visiting Tbilisi.

How much is cheapest hotel,motel or private room? How much minimum travel insurance? Or can I enter Georgia without Hotel bookings and travel insurance? Thanks.

can I know which airline you took from Kuwait while travelling to georgia

Visit Booking or any other related website to find a hotel suiting your budget. GCC residents will not require travel insurance. According to what I know, hotel booking is compulsory.
