Martin B., Australia - Another possitive review for Andrei

updated on 27/11/2011
I was in Minsk for a couple of days a few weeks ago and I must give Andrei from another great review! I selected his website because he already had a number of possitive reviews on TT. That turned out to be a very good idea. 
I didn't have a lot of time and I didn't really know what to see. Andrei was great from the moment I first emailed him. Suggesting tours and things to see. I ended up going to Nesvizh and Mir castles on one day (I was there when we went to the Mir Hotel for the review now on his website), and Hatyn and a city tour the next day. 
There's no doubt that I would never have seen as much or learnt so much about the history of the places I was visiting if I did not have Andrei with me, he is a fountain of knowledge and he speaks excellent English as anyone who posts here would know. He is also quite willing, in his own way, to talk about what life is like in the fascinating Soviet era timewarp that is Belarus. 
Thanks Andrei for making my trip to Belarus a memorable one!

Questions are welcome!
