Minsk Tours: transportation only
If you'd like to just check out certain sights in Minsk or around instead of spending a few hours on-site, or to make it more budget, my driver-only options should be a perfect choice!
Getting an English-speaking driver lowers the budget and gains you more time on the spot, particularly if you are into photography or if you are visiting 12 countries in one trip and Belarus is number 11)
Unguided ride means the English speaking driver will be able to discuss any everyday stuff with you, giving basic navigation on the spot (where to buy tickets, where to eat, which doors to knock or not to knock on).
Driver-only option is available for the following tours (1-3 guests):
Minsk city tour ($50, up to 3 hours)
Khatyn and Glory Mound ($65, up to 3 hours)
Nesvizh and Mir castles ($100, up to 7+ hours);
Brest city and Fortress tour (National Park can be included on arrangement; $250, 10 hours);
Any town or village in Belarus you'd like to visit for ancestral reasons (price is negotiable).
Please, note that a group larger than 3 persons would need a minibus, though this and tailored trips through Belarus depending on your objective can be discussed and arranged. The price quoted covers an English-speaking driver (average level) and transportation services to the destinations of the trip.
Card payments are accepted if booked ahead.
