Review. Trekking in Georgia «Svaneti + sea»

Anastasiya Kurilenko 

Translated from Russian

Organization   

The organization as a whole is OK, i.e. the transfers were organized, enough food for all, etc. But would like to see in the campaign were the person who organizes tourists, i.e. tells them what and when they should do, where to be, what you should do, how much time they have on a particular activity, where to turn on the trail, where to look etc.
The whole trip we constantly ran. The first couple of days we tried to keep up with the instructor, but then I realized that at this rate we do not have time to consider what around. But we didn't come to run for an instructor from halt to halt, and to enjoy kraevidom. Halts did very rarely, but they were very long. I think it would be easier to do single halt for 15 minutes in an hour or two, go slower and reduce lunch, which was too long. When we realized that the instructor at your own pace, which does not change, we just stopped in a hurry, going at your own pace at the end of the group and had a chance to see and enjoy. One day a group of people like us who like to enjoy nature, not to run, lost. We walked for another hour in search of instructors with backpacks and in the dark. I think it's wrong on the part of the instructor - way to run to lose 9 of 14 tourists!

Food   

The food was beyond praise. Perfect!

Instructor - Andriy Sopilyuk   

Specially bided his time to experience subsided. But even after all this time my opinion remained - I did not have enough instructor-organizer. The impression that Andrew saw as its main objective, three times a day to feed and water the hot tea to the group. Wherever and whenever there was our lunch under the hot sun or, for example, directly on the trail, go where other tourists - we ate regularly, tight and always hot tea. While Andrew did all the work, didn't ask him to help and not taking help when offered him. You can imagine how it was hard. Behind him is a huge respect. But I think that the instructor in the first place is an organizer, not a chef. Tourists come to hike and be willing to make the effort to eat))... no One would have died if we organized a vigil and would help to cook or sometimes lunch did not drink the tea, not to sit under the scorching sun. Wish for Andrew is to focus on organization tourists, not on food, more time to devote to what we can see if, for example, once again stop, or slow down on the road. People go Hiking for the beauty and impressions.

General opinion   

It was a magical hike, the beauty around, the mountain was breath taking and very memorable hike on the glacier ))), the weather was wonderful, no rain ... whatever the shortcomings, it is only diversified our hike and spent. I am grateful for the opportunity to see the beauty of Georgia.

Response of administration

Thanks for the feedback. Will definitely have a conversation with the instructor and will correct all defects.
PS From duty left deliberately to avoid any problems with food (not all conscious about cooking).
