Why trust our guides over Lonely Planet:

- We have traveled extensively around Georgia for over 7 months

- We highlight the least visited and off-beat places in the country; whereas regular book guides mainly focus on mass tourism destinations.

- All the travel information is 100% based on personal experiences, whereas most book guides tend to lack the personal touch.

- We are not a generic guide, but we are aimed at culturally sensitive, adventurous travelers interested in the culture and authentic experiences

- Most book guides will tell you that all places are great but, if I don't like a place, I will just tell you

- And loads, loads of photos, something most guidebooks lack

Plus my travel advice has been featured in:

Lonely Planet, The Telegraph, BuzzFeed, Atlas Obscura, Culture Trip, Arab News, Khaleej Times, Tribune, Yahoo, Matador Network, Adventure.com, among others

What fellow travelers say

Will Hatton from TheBrokeBackpacker.com - Top travel blogger, expert in budget backpacking

When it comes to backpacking in Georgia, Joan is the master! He’s got more experience than anybody else I know and has gotten truly off the beaten track in this incredible country, and his new guide totally reflects that!

Joao Leitao from NomadRevelations.com - Travel blogger, offbeat travel expert

The most precious thing about this travel guide is that it is in first person, written after getting a lot of travel experience in the country, rather than based on research. It’s a great source of information to the pretty much anywhere in Georgia, including off the beaten track gems

Marc, World Traveler in love with Georgia

The best thing about this ebook is that Joan managed to find the perfect balance between an informative, practical guide and an inspirational piece full of local insights and interesting facts. An invaluable source of information for anyone traveling to Georgia. 


Isn’t the content of this ebook published on your site?

Well, not really.

First of all, my ebook contains 12 destination-specific guides, whereas on my website you can only find 3. Moreover, the site doesn’t contain anything about suggested travel itineraries, plus there aren’t many details about the daily budget and trekking tips.

Is this guide available in print?

For now, the guide is available in PDF, Kindle format (.MOBI) and ePub.

Once you buy it, you will be able to download the 3 formats.

If I have any questions, may I email you?

Sure thing 🙂 Any question, just shoot me an email at joan@againstthecompass.com
