This was an interesting tour around historical Minsk - our first visit - and Tanya was very knowledgeable. The buildings are beautiful and Tanya’s stories made us want to visit a not-well-known city. Looking forward to seeing the newer Minsk in Part 2 now! Thankyou Tanya!

Tanya was extremely warm and friendly, despite her having had to contend with standing around in a positively Arctic temperature. She was also very thorough and organised re her having brought along several accompanying, then and now, photographs. I endeavoured to leave her a tip but the site kept stating that my passcode was incorrect......when it wasn’t! However, I’ll retry later on. Thank you and Tanya very much, Yours, Jacqueline Redman
