The town of Sighnaghi is located on the top of a hill, which offers commanding views of the nearby Alazanui valley and is protected by a spectacular, defensive wall built by King Erekle II in the 18th century. Each of the wall’s 23 towers is named after a nearby village. The towers were places of refuge for the town’s inhabitants during sieges.

"I have nothing but praise for this tour. I was travelling with my elderly mother and we both had the most fantastic time. The group gelled very well and we all had similar interests. Our guide (Sami) was superb. His knowledge of the subject was boundless. The coach drivers were both superb especially Hassan who managed to negotiate the roads in an exemplary manner.
