Marat was very informative and answered all kinds of questions (history, culture, Soviet time, Tatar culture, life style, etc.). Provided us with fair and neutral perspectives, and both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed 3 days with him. Marat is also a very sincere person with a great discipline. Highly recommended.
