მოგესალმებით, ეს ტური არ არის. ეს არის მხოლოდ ინფორმაცია ტაბაწყურის შესახებ. თუმცა თუ მანქანით წახვალთ 1 დღეში შესაძლებელია რომ მოასწროთ მისი დათვალიერება და თბილისში დაბრუნება. თუმცა ასე ძალიან რომ არ დაიღალოთ მგზავრობით, შეგიძლიათ ბაკურიანში ან ბორჯომში დარჩეთ ღამე, და მომდევნო დილით დაბრუნდეთ დედაქალაქში.
