Joseph Alexander Smith

Freelance Multimedia Journalist based in Tbilisi, Georgia
With its unique cultural traditions and vernacular architectural style, Tbilisi - a city on the edge of empires and civilizations - has enchanted travellers, writers and artists for centuries. The many secrets of the city's past are often hidden - in the backstreets, private courtyards and entranceways of its historic quarters and buildings. 


With a keen interest in Tbilisi's cultural and architectural heritage, my tailored heritage tours offer tourists a chance to step behind the facade and view the city from within - through the historical interiors of these fascinating buildings and the stories they hold.
