Back by popular demand, this extraordinary and unique itinerary to the ruined cathedrals of Tao-Klarjeti was featured together with John Graham Tours in a New York Times article “Music and
Ancient History in the Caucasus” (June 25th, 2017 issue). Join us as we explore the dramatic landscapes of the once impregnable medieval fortresses of the kingdom of Tao-Klarjeti, situated in
today’s little explored border region between Turkey and Georgia. Travel in the two countries will be overland, where a range of new luxury boutique hotels have been chosen for their location and variety. In keeping with our spirit of adventure, we are reaching this region ahead of the crowds, and thus some adaptation and flexibility may be required. This tour is a feast for the senses, and a step back into the history, architecture, music, and culture of a medieval Christian kingdom in the Caucasus.
