“When Mrs. Nino, founder of the company Interco Travel, showed me presentation about Georgia, I was totally amazed. My reaction was like, “great! It is so beautiful! Why I did not know about it before?” And it takes only 2 hours and 20 minutes from our country to arrive in Georgia! It will be good for the one who wants to spend a weekend here. Only this short period of time and you are already in Europe! I am sure that this partnership will continue in future. I always feel in advance whether things go well or not.
