About
Minsk city tour is the great opportunity to feel the soul of the city and to see its varios sides: the historical buildings, soviet architecture and modern sites. First, we'll get acquainted with the historical centre of Minsk - Freedom Square (or as it is called by people Upper Town), where we'll have a walk to see the charming historical buildings of XVII-XIX centuries and remarkable statues and monuments. Next we'll drive along Winners Avenue to take a look at the new districts of Minsk with its impressive modern constructions. After seeing the modern part of the city we'll get back to the history to visit the moving Ireland of Tears and to explore the Trinity Suburb, walking around its cozy yards and corners. Then we'll drive to Independence Square and Avenue to admire the magnificent soviet arquitecture left from 1940s-1950s. And finally, we'll see the outstanding building of the National Library which is considered to be one of the symbols of Belarus.

Excellent City Tour
Feb. 2020
Kristina is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide! We learned so much about Minsk and Belarus covering different periods of history. My wife and I especially enjoyed going to the Island of Tears and the surrounding shops. I would definitely recommend booking a tour with Kristina!

The best guide ever
Oct. 2019
Kristina is probably the best guide I have ever worked with (and believe me, I have had a few). She knows her city well and at the same time is a skilled pedagogue, able to adapt to different audiences. Hardly any subject is unknown to her. At the same time she is extremely logistically skilled, able to keep her guest on track and keep up with the timetable – which is a rare combination – and a very friendly person to work with, too.

Very interesting tours with a great guide
Apr. 2019
I visited Belarus in April 2019 with my girlfriend. We did the Minsk city tour and (the next day) a half day trip to Mir castle. Both times, we had Kristina as a guide. She did a perfect job: she is extremely friendly, reliable, her English is more than good and her knowledge about Minsk and Belarus is amazing. There is not the slightest thing she could have done better. The city of Minsk and also Mir castle are wonderful places where there is lot to see and discover. So we spent an unforgettable time in Belarus thanks to Kristina and the amazing hospitality of Belarusian people.

Perfect city tour
May 2019
If you’re in Minsk do this tour. Kristina speaks perfect English, great historic knowledge and even recited some local poetry!
She was punctual along with being flexible to take time at places or not depending what interested me more. Never felt rushed and we covered a lot.
I learnt a lot about Belarus and Minsk. First class tour with an excellent guide. Such an interesting country, new to tourism and I wish I had longer to go further afield. If I get back I would definitely arrange Kristina to take me around.

Best tour guide in my life
Apr. 2019 • Solo
During a couple days I've visited several Kristina's excursions in different places.
Firstly, of course regular city tour around Minsk. Which turns out to be not as regular as you imagine. City is quite big and we've been to several parts of it from different eras of its history. Also, I have to admit that she's not only telling you that 'to the left is an art museum, that was built in xxx year'. But she actually telling you different interesting stories about places you see.
Secondly, we've visited Mir and Nesvizh castles in the countryside. Thanks to Kristina road to them passed in a moments. I really liked how she's telling you history. I'm not fan of it even slightly but again. Somehow she's makes it easy and interesting.
Also we did big trip to National park near Brest city. It is trip for whole day, but she tried to make it as easy and pleasant as possible.
But the best thing is that she is so in love with her country, that in the end of our time together I decided that I really want to come back again.
