My Minsk city tour covers the main city sights. We shall start with a walk along Independence Square, the main square in the country and hear the story about the present-day Belarus. A short drive will bring us to the Railway Station Square and then - to the second walking venue - the Old Town that has retained the atmosphere of the past. The architectural future of Minsk can be seen during a drive along Pobeditelei (Winners') Avenue - the next part of my Minsk city tour - followed by a walk in the Trinity Suburb and the Island of Tears.A few moments later we will drive along Independence Avenue and see Victory Square where the house that accommodated Mr. Lee Harvey Oswald ('59-61) still exists. At the end of the tour we will reach the famous Minsk Library and will take a short trip to the observation pad on top of it.The tour is a combination of walking and driving that takes a total time of about 3 hours (starting and ending at the specified location).

I just returned from a tour with Andrei. This was not your standard walk through all the known tourist places. You really get a bit of everything. Economic history/status, history of pre and post war, architecture in relation to Lenin and post Lenin, the situation today, pop culture. You certainly see a lot f places that you might not otherwise... More

He is giving many information, and try to explain his country, his culture, his history with great words. I can only recommend him. He is doing an excellent job, even if it is not to feel that he is working. Excellent English. In addition nice sense of humor!

My friend and I had a great time with Andrei who took us around Minsk! Andrei has a British accent but the last time he was in the U.K. was in his junior high school time! WOW! As a native, he shared with us many local knowledge, the history of Belarus, social/political/military aspect of things concerning the country. Thus, we... More

I wanted to see Belarus in the snow and Andrei was the perfect Guide for me. Every day for a week we went on an excursion. His language skills are superb and he is a wonderful history guide. Worth every ruble. He only took me shopping when I asked him to, which was greatly appreciated. Don't miss the Honey Bee... More

My father recently spent a week in Belarus, based in Minsk. Andrei's tour and services were outstanding. He felt it is quite simply the best way to visit Belarus and Minsk. Andrei has an excellent understanding of English and his vehicles were modern, comfortable and clean.He possesses an incredibly thorough knowledge of world history, particularly the history of WWII in...

In January I took a couple of back-to-back tours with Andrei – visiting the Stalin Line, the Mound of Glory and the Khatyn Memorial Park. It was the best day I spent in Belarus. Andrei is a superb tour guide. His knowledge of the locations and their history is impeccable... the details, stories and discussion really bring these places to... More

We were lucky enough to have Andrei give us a three day tour of Minsk and surrounding areas. Minsk is an amazing city, and Andrei has extensive knowledge of Belarusian history and culture. He provided us with a superb customized experience that we could not have gotten on our own or with a group tour. He planned our itinerary perfectly,... More

First fo all the trip was way too expensive. My girlfriend and I were charged $80 for a three hour trip. If you're fine with this price, then I guess the trip is worth it. As I have visited Minsk before, there was very little new that I learned. My girlfriend, who is Belarussian born and bred learned even less... More

Dear Victor, thank you very much for the feedback! Apologies for pronouncing your name in a French way - my nasty habit, I agree, but you should have pointed at that from starters rather than sweating for three hours. As for the pricing, it's all on the website and the price / payment mode are always agreed upon before departure.... More
