Exceptional Guide
Oct 2020
It seems like good customer service is hard to come by these days. From the planning/booking process to the tour itself, I was astonished by the level of service I received from Vladimir--he really went above and beyond. Helpful. Friendly. Punctual. Vladimir is undoubtedly an exceptional guide; not only is he passionate, but also extremely intelligent and knowledgeable about his country. Strongly recommend!

Extremely engaging and informative tour
Nov 2019
This is absolutely the best tour in Belarus. During my 3 days in Belarus, I visited Minsk and the Nesvizh and Mir castles. Vladimir is extremely informed, well-spoken, and knowledgeable about everything Belarusian: culture, history, politics, daily life, and has a lot of interesting experiences to share from his work in the UN. I learned a lot about Belarus and these tours helped me tremendously with my thesis project. He is very patient and helpful with my questions and we stayed in touch after the tour, too! I also appreciate his honesty and objectivity in presenting the facts about his country, as such qualities are often absent in reports covering Belarus by the international media.

Would definitely recommend Vladimir as a guide for anyone visiting Belarus
Dec 2019 • Couples
I and my partner thoroughly enjoyed the tours Vladimir gave.

During our visit to the castles of Mir and Nesvizh on the first day, Vladimir's ability to combine his personal insights on the history of Belarus with the official historical narrative made the experience wholly unique.This is because for us who are entirely new to Belarus, he drew interesting parallels between the contemporary history of Eastern Europe, with which we are more or less familiar, and the fate of the castles throughout the 20th century. Apart from his knowledge, Vladimir's attitude and hospitality were also superb. He was glad to answer any questions we had and to accommodateour preferences, such as stopping by a local farmer's stall and translating for us while buying local produce. On the second day during which he gave the World War II tour, his venerable background as an Afghan War veteran made our visit to the Stalin Line all the more memorable. For example, while passing by open air exhibits of military vehicles, he explained each of the vehicle's functions in different stages of a battle. But more importantly, he also recounted his personal experiences of operating these military vehicles and looking out against enemy fire during his 2 years of active service in Afghanistan in the 1980s. For us who have been living in peace all our lives, it added an immensely vivid yet solemn touch to the experience.

All in all, our visit to Belarus would have been entirely different but for Vladimir's knowledge, professionalism, and hospitable attitude.

VERY GOOD TOUR GUIDE
Sep 2019 • Business
Wow! We are grateful for the experience of sharing 2 days with Vladimir and his knowledge and passion. An honest, open and very well spoken guide, with rich information and stories - all told with personal touch.

After a trip around the many sights in Minsk, and getting to know this beautiful city's history - we visited the Stalin Line Museum with great enthusiasm. I truly recommend visiting them with Vladimir.

It was truly a day to remember - and honestly probably THE best tour experience I've had. I can with full confidence recommend him to everyone with an interest in visiting Belarus - and we have already recommended friends back home, who have now scheduled a trip.

I approached Vladimir for a tour through the Stalin Line Complex. He picked us up from our accommodation and drove us to the complex. While driving he took us past some interesting sights in Minsk and told us about its history. During the tour he translated for us. Vladimir is an excellent interpreter and adds his own flare to the experience. Overall a very enjoyable day.

Fascinating perspective from Minsk to Stalin Line
Oct 2019
Incredibly wonderful experience from a natural story-teller with a great ability to attract the unbroken attention of an audience. Vladimir has endless knowledge, knows to describe the history, culture and society of Belarus (and other countries) in a fascinating and complete way, answering all our questions to great satisfaction. Hardly ever had such an interesting, charming and pleasant tour-guide experience. Thank you again very much, Vladimir.

Highly recommended! Friendly, knowledgeable, competent guide
Sep 2019 • Solo
I was in Belarus for one week and hired Vladimir for an airport to hotel transfer and for a custom Soviet tour of Minsk. He responded quickly to my last minute email and request for transfer.

I had a quite a few tours while in Belarus, including another private tour with a different guide, and in comparison I found Vladimir to be highly competent and knowledgeable, but most important, highly conversational and just down right personable and interesting.

Vladimir has an interesting past which he is more than willing to share and discuss. This was one of the best parts of his tour!! He is easy going and friendly and speaks excellent English. Riding in his well maintained car I felt safe and at ease. He was on time for the airport transfer and the tour and was exceptionally flexible with payment and payment arrangements (be sure to bring USD cash as Belarus guides are not as electronically connected as in other countries, at least not yet, at the time of this writing. this is not unique to Vladimir, I found this to be the case with others as well).

I am a single, female American traveler and I felt safe and at ease. I would definitely recommend Vladimir for Belarusian tours and transfers.

We had the chance to discover Minsk and The region with Vladimir.

Vladimir has filled completely our expectations and we are warmly recommending him to do any visits in Minsk and around.
If you Are keen to visit Minsk you have to use his services and be ready for an amazing and reel discovery of Bielorussia.

Best guide and tour ever
Aug 2019
I have had private guided tours all over the world, from Cartagena in Colombia to Murmansk in Russia.
However, Vladimir is without any doubt the best guide I've ever had. He is super organized and service minded, fast and easy communication, his English is excellent, knows A LOT about Minsk and Belarus, and has a fascinating life and experience he includes in his tour that adds a unique dimension.
Further, Vladimir adapted the tour to our specific interests (primarily WW2 and the Soviet era) and we had a day we will never forget. Great mix of sights and facts, from Stalin Line and the Great Patriotic War Museum to different examples of Soviet architecture.

Besides the tour, Vladimir helped us getting train tickets and airport transfer, and provided a lot of recommendations for restaurants, sights, accommodation, and more.

I hope I can visit Minsk again in the near future (which is a surprisingly nice city!) and have another tour with Vladimir on another theme (probably Napoleon and the French invasion). Meanwhile, I have already recommend Vladimir to some other friends&family who hopefully will visit Minsk soon.

Belarus and Ancestry Tourism with Vlad!
Jul 2019 • Solo
My mom and I just wrapped up an amazing tour with Vladimir, who was an exceptional guide and host during our three days in Belarus. Vlad was so caring, and he made the trip to and from the airport seamless. When I had an issue with my ticket going home, he patiently helped me navigate the ticket counters at the airport adding tremendous relief.

Our tour was so great. My mom and I came to explore her ancestral roots in the countryside of Vitebsk, Belarus. Vlad planned every piece of the trip for us, tailoring a trip that reflected our interests and lineage. We saw the Chagall house, saw monuments, and visited the old Jewish graveyard were my mom's ancestors would have likely been buried. We could not have done this without his help, hands down. He is also just super knowledgeable about all things Belarusian and we learned a ton about life and history. I whole-heartedly recommend Vlad to anyone wishing to visit this part of the world. Thank you Vlad!!
