Assistance in Planning a Trip to an Eastern European Shtetl

We're going to Russia this fall and would like to visit the villages in the Ukraine and Belarus that my parents were from. Whom should we contact for help in planning our trip? Many thanks!

Hi gold88 and welcome to Ukraine forum :)

Whom do you arrange your Russia trip with? Quite possibly your tour company might have partners or connections in the area, and will be able to arrange Belarus and Ukraine parts of your journey as well. You might find it easier to coordinate this through one company rather than three.

If no, or you find it too expensive, there are plenty local tour companies that can help.

P.S. Remember that if you are a US-passport holder then you will need a visa to enter Russia and Belarus. You can enter Ukraine visa-free.
