Stalingrad 3-day Tour
I am very much into WW2 but other than Poland I had never ventured to the Eastern Front and where the war was won. I booked a 3 day with Mikhail's advice, even though I thought this could be excessive I would say that the 3 days was 100% required and I wouldn't have got a full understanding of the battle if I went for a shorter period of time.
Mikhail organised a great package, covering all the main sites including the Mamayev Kurgan, Red October and Tractor Factory, Island of Fire and its museum with the lovely guides, Panorama Museum, Pavlov's House, the Department Store and Kalatch. He was very organised, had a great knowledge on all topics and was willing to go out of his way to help us with anything we needed, especially dinner reservations.
The people of Volgograd are very welcoming and friendly, even though English is not spoken by most people I found everyone very helpful and willing to go out of their way to help me. I would note that other than WW2 this town doesn't seem to have much to do for tourists.
