Pretty interesting but old lady guide didn't speak loudly enough or enough command of English to get that much history of the homes seen.

A fascinating place with guides in each building many of whom spoke English and shared many interesting stories about the buildings, Georgian history and wine making. A lovely place to roam around on a bright day.

The houses near the gate are best, and you can enter and get an explanation. The further in you go, the more are locked. Sweet museum but needs a bit more investment. I wouldn’t mind paying more than 5 Lari if it helped.
