Minsk tour guide contact information.


updated on 29/09/2010
I hold a license of a private guide No 000961 issued by the National Tourism Agency of Belarus on 20.05.2016. The copies of the above mentioned documents are available upon request.
I am listed as a translator / interpreter for English-Russian-Belarusian with Minsk Notary Office which allows me to be present in this capacity at official acts.
As a self-employed man I operate round the clock and it is my personal standard to respond to any e-mail within 15 minutes at daytime (might be longer in winter - "dead" season and all that=). I speak excellent Russian, pretty good English and poor German. Operational vehicle - Volkswagen Multivan, 2008.

There are no stupid questions on Belarus tourism issues and guided Minsk tours and I am keen to check and double-check things and provide only first hand up-to-date information to you.
*Deposits if charged usually amount to a minor part of the tour price and are non-refundable. The materials on my website are the result of my work, my intellectual property and can only be used with my written consent.
