With their skills and experience in tourism sector they started building successful tour agency. Their passion and creative thinking “out of a box” let them to create tours, where visitors in Georgia are not “just a tourists”. They are guests, who have opportunity to feel real spirit of Georgia. Maja and Justina are determined to find a way to give fellow travelers an authentic experience of Caucasus region. A way for people who do not have the opportunity to invest the time, learn the language, or build the relationships with locals to still experience local Georgia. A way to be invited into the culture as a close friend not just a tourist.

Justina earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Sciences at Vilnius University in Lithuania. As well through exchange programs she studied in Marmara and Isik universities in Turkey and Tbilisi State University in Georgia. She spent 9 months gaining organisational skills in EVS project in Dunkeqrue, France and worked 4 months in New York state in hospitality sector. Justina has studied English, Russian and Turkish languages and is hoping to add Spanish to her repertoire in the near future!
She visited Georgia first time in 2010. Since then she kept coming back. Finally, she followed her dream to connect her love for travelling with a job. Taking a closer look at Georgia, she realized that the country she knew and loved was not the same one being packaged to unknowing travelers. The culture and places that made Georgia so special to Justina was completely inaccessible to tourists. Now she is glad to help travelers to experience local magic that made her to fall in love with this country.
