Transportation from Tbilisi to Batumi

Tbilisi to Batumi Destination Reviews

The train crew made me put my tiny dog into a carrying bag (that I luckily had but never used) where she's never traveled in 11 years of her life so she was really scared. I had to sit with her throughout the whole journey (5 hours) on the stairs to the second cart floor in the train vestibule, the crew wouldn't let me into the cart. This is borderline animal cruelty and I was deprived of the proper service I purchased. Also, no rules concerning bringing an animal on board were brought to my attention while making a purchase.

In general good enough. In detail, missing hot beverages and food. 5-6 hours trip is too long to have only cold water and snacks from fridge
