My name calls in the Georgian language Sergo; I’m the founder of the GeTUR project born about ten years ago when we, with my wife Daria, came the first time in Georgia. It was not the first country in our travel schedule; before that, we travel around quite part of the CIS and also visited countries like Turkey, Egypte, Countries of the European Union, etc.
Look back at that time, I can say that the travels were our hobby, which took all the free time that we had. Georgia became the lovefest place where we came to walking, hiking, rafting, and other adventures. Also, acquaintance with the local cuisine and traditions was no less reason, too, to went back to Georgia several times in the year. We drove through the country to learned it and visit different places include not the famous and low popular of ordinary tourists.
The journeys became more and more often, the knowledge of the country grow too. We carried out the detailed research of Adjara in 2015 and decided that it is an ideal place to organize the raft camp to conduct the simple one-hours rafting. So, we weren’t far away from the truth at that time. We had experience in rafting, and in 2016, after sold the old business we start this project in Adjara, the rafting service quite quickly became popular.
Further, we had several years of working in different directions of the tourism sphere. At present, due to a lot of changes in the situation on the rivers and realities of life in Georgia, we decide that we only want to do that we can do best and that we like to do.
At the present day the GeTur company is the community of professional guides in Georgia offering services below:
- We conduct any kinds of rafting service
We have special transport, boats and all the necessary equipment including the neoprene wetsuits and shoes to provide rafting for groups above 100 participants.
- We conduct multi-day tours in Georgia with an accent to organizing the particular journey, especially for active people.
- One and two-day excursions. We make an accent in the way of not ordinary trips.

Our team consists of locals and foreigners who chose Georgia as the second home. We are living in Georgia and quite well know the country, language, local traditions, culture, lifestyle, hidden and famous sights. On the other hand, we traveled like tourists in Georgia too, and quite well understand what can be attractive to foreigners. We friendship with logic and can make up an understandable and accessible logistic across Georgia.
