Beware scammer taxi drivers. Use only Bolt or smilar companies. Do not use normal taxi in Tbilisi. They will try to scam you.

Same thing happen to me also on 5 Jan 2023 There are groups of thieves and kids who stick to me in front of the entrance of galleria mall of tiblis and steal my valet ,but no people help me ,They are we trained and big mafia is making all this.also around in 10 meter police was standing but they didn't do I cont to georgian Police, and they do nothing!Only they write report, but they cannot talk in English it was difficult.They stollen my credit card and cash including.Also they were using my card for purchasing i told to police also that they are using my card at this place .But no action with the help of one person I block all my credit card.later I was taken to crime branch and they told me to sit .I waited for 3 hrs in police station.then again they took my statement and tell me to sign on statement, when they found my vallet they will inform me.But any how I came to know that they already found valet in 45 minutes. So one of man ask to me that have u got ur valet.i said not yet .bcz police are telling me when they get they will contact me.he then ask to police and then finally they give me.As I lost all my money and Cards , but only I have got my EID and DL.Dont believe on Google News about no Crime in Georgia. I would request and suggest to go other place than Georgia.Also on the same day in police station I meet three people having same issue .They belongs to UAE resident,Asian and one from US .There is big gang of mafia in Georgia, Tiblis who is operating these racket.As price are saying we cannot do any thing to children as they are 14 years old or less.Also came to know people are following you and have connections outside .when go outside of mall these children are attacking tourisy.No tourist are safe.These racket are g
Operating since 2019 ,still no action taken means surely there is big people behind it .And also too much corruption I think ,So last and final words to all my friends.Avoid to travel Georgia.Bcz no body will help you there.
The crime rate of Georgia is low because the Police force tourists to file the robberies as Lost!and they take signature to close the case bcz the statement is written in their language.
Shame on you ... Worst trip experience. Several almost 4 thefts occured in few minustes and Police did nothing.

be careful with these bars in the old town tourist area, a friend got cleaned up the bank 5600lari in 3 mobile banking app transitions, this was after 2 drinks, he doesn't remember anything, only remembering he was pushed in a car driving around to get more money. doesn't remember which place exactly they drop him off. plus the next day they try to call him to ask for 5000 lari more.

Exact thing happened to me on 2nd Dec on Freedom Square near Spar Market (I guess the location is the same as in the video). 2-3 kids are the same as in the video as well.
They came out of nowhere and two of them clinged to my leg. I was holding in to my wallet as I realised they might do something. Whereas the other 2-3 kids tried to snatch my wife's purse. And in the process my wife stumbled and I rushed to pick her up, and in that very instant one of the kids took out my wallet from my back pocket and then stood behind another girl and took out the entire money and then threw the wallet and ran away. I called the police and reported everything to them and they told me these are gypsy kids and it's a problem for them as well since they do not have any address and don't know where they live and above all kids under 14 cannot be punished by the law, but they will try their best to help us.
Please be careful if you visit Georgia. Whatever you hear about the country can be different as well.

Georgia is the one of the world centers of the children prostitution trafficking.
Even international hotels have special posters that warns parents about children kidnapping.

i am a georgian and lately i have been hearing a lot of death and kidnapping, is this site legit?
Novak on Sep 10, 2022:
It is extremly unsafe for all central Europeans, because Georgians think for most of us that we are Russians.
So if you from west or south slavic countries, don't come to Georgia.
Micah on Jul 08, 2022:
It is not that safe - many restaurants arbitrarily overcharge foreigners by obscene amounts - police are untrustworthy - taxi drivers will scam you if you do not use Bolt, which is the equivalent of Uber - hostility to foreigners is increasing because of the Russians fleeing to Georgia - foreigners are considered a target and are the subject of frequent and aggressive scams in a way that locals are not

visitor on May 28, 2021:
never under any circumstance go into a restaurant, bar, or club from any women that approach you from the street asking if you need recommendation for a place to eat or drink. These are scam restaurants, and all bars/clubs in Tbilisi are scam places. u been warned.
visitor on May 28, 2021:
pretty bad country. lot of crime here against tourist even away from tourist areas.
Jordan on Oct 03, 2020:
Its not safe for people that look different . Georgians are very aggressive people especially if you are minority. All this good comments are nothing but lies. You cant even walk alone during night because some drunk georgians might start fighting for no reason just because your skin or even t-shirt looks different.
advice from georgian on Sep 18, 2020:
hey, some advices about safety for people who are going to visit Georgia.

about nighlife:
try to avoid night bars and strip clubs, if you don't have recommendations about place.
nightclubs like Bassiani, Khidi and Mtkvarze are fine and safe. just go and find out about place before you visit at midnight.
some places can overcharge you as hell.

about transport:
bus, micro bus, metro, train are ok and cheap. however if want to take taxi, I recommend to do that through apps.
Yandex Taxi, Bolt, Maxim - those companies are fine, they will give you fair price. local taxi drivers might overcharge you.

The reason why people have a mouth and two ears is because they listen twice as much as they say
