Agents Explore Georgia on famil

Explore Worldwide recently hosted a group of agents on a famil to Georgia to uncover more about this destination.

 

The week was filled with visits to ancient monasteries and churches, walking the network of abandoned cave towns built into the side of cliffs and dining with families in small rural villages. Agents had a 4WD trip amongst the snow-capped peaks of the Greater Caucasus, visited museums and small bars and took the cable car above cosmopolitan Tbilisi. There was plenty of time to sample the local wine. Hong Kong Andrew Eddy from Explore / Cox and Kings Australia and New Zealand said the famil was a great way for agents to experience first hand the ethos of Explore. ‘The focus is on getting away from the typical well-trodden tourist track. The famil in Georgia really emphasised this to agents,’ says Eddy.
