Private tour guide Vladimir

Vladimir G.

Minsk, None, Belarus

I love history, cultural heritage and nature of my country, archeology and wooden architecture, local cuisine and beverages))), cities and villages and much, much more and want to share my passion with others.

In addition, I have broad life experience, having born in the USSR and witnessed many events, happened in this part of the world. My military background (10 years in the Soviet Army, starting as soldier in Eastern Germany and ending as Captain, including participation in the Afghan war) and my vast international experience (15 years in the UNHCR in different countries, including Yemen, Iran, Pakistan, Russia, Serbia) allow me to be a good source of interesting and sometimes unique information and find common language with everybody.
All kind of private tours (city tour, tour to the castles, wooden architecture or traditional crafts museums, military history tours, customised tours, including family tree investigations) are available with brand new and comfortanble Toyota RAV 4. Toyota Land Cruiser 80 will be at your disposal for nature, wild-life tours, and 4X4 adventures. Cycling, canoeing, fishing and many other wild-life tours can be arranged, upon request as well.

A Recent Review of this guide

Hicimos el tour de Segunda Guerra Mundial y fue la mejor elección que pudimos hacer. Visitas en un mismo día 3 lugares únicos y poco conectados: Línea Stalin, Kathyn y Monte de la Gloria. Vladimir tiene experiencia en temas históricos bélicos y militares y sus explicaciones detalladas hacen que realmente merezca la pena contratar el tour para ver estos lugares, sino no tienen el mismo significado. Y tuvimos largas conversaciones sobre la vida en la Unión Soviética y la actualidad de sus ex-repúblicas.
