Explore the roads of Georgia in one of our vintage Soviet Ladas and discover this wonderful Caucasian country at your own pace.
We have a range of vehicles available, including the 4×4 Niva and the classic Lada Zhiguli. These don’t have power steering and you may end up with arms like a Russian ship-builder after a week of navigating the twists and turns of Georgia’s roads. The seats are only modestly comfortable, the ‘acceleration’ is non-existent and plenty of people are going to wander why on earth you didn’t just hire a modern car. (Before we forget, we can of course provide you with a more modern car.)
But that isn’t really the point, is it? The Lada has been the workhorse of the the Russian-speaking world for decades and is slowly but surely becoming a dying breed. Here in Georgia too, it will largely disappear from the roads in the coming years. But we think travel should be fun, quirky and shun the ordinary or mundane wherever possible. And travelling by these old cars will be an experience you’ll remember for years to come. This isn’t just a means of getting from A to B but a journey in its own right. What better way to explore Georgia than in one of these delightfully evocative vehicles?
Each car is suitable for up to four persons and luggage.
We have several available, so if you’d like to travel as a group in several cars then that’s more than possible too.
The price quoted here is for a week’s hire. Please talk to us if you’d like to book a car for a different amount of time.
