old Jewish area tour guides?


can anyone pls tell me, if there are recognised guides whom I can book a half or whole day with, to tour the old Jewish parts of Vitebsk? I've not been to Belarus before so wouldn't really know where to start. Also, anyone got a rough idea how much it might cost for half and for a whole day's tour? I'm thinking of a tour guide with a car, similar to a cab driver but with the experience of being a guide and not just a driver.

Thanks for your help

I will transfer all this to my brother and hope he would be able to help you to make it as easy as possible.
