The Battle of Stalingrad tour

It was our first visit to the eastern front, we have seen a lot of the battlefields in western Europe, but nothing in the east yet. We had a very committed guide, Mikhail, who led me and my father for two days in and around Volgograd. We visited the most important places and the guide was always very helpful, had a lot of knowledge and passion for the battle of Stalingrad. Even outside office hours he was available and available to help us. He has arranged a meeting with Sergei, who was also very friendly and has done many interesting sparks in the vicinity of Stalingrad. An extra day could have been great, as there is still a lot to see in the 'kessel van Stalingrad' Even after returning home Mikhail showed himself involved, a real plus! If you want to visit Volgograd for the battle of Stalingrad, there is no better way than to visit the city and the surroundings with Mikhail and Sputnik Travel. For example, with the guide the language is not a barrier and you come to places that few know.

Dutch version

Het was voor ons het eerste bezoek aan het oostfront, we hebben al veel gezien van de slagvelden in het westen van Europa, maar nog niets in het oosten. We hadden een zeer betrokken gids, Mikhail die mij en mijn vader gedurende twee dagen heeft rond geleid in en rond Volgograd. We hebben de belangrijkste plaatsen bezocht en de gids was altijd erg behulpzaam, had veel kennis en passie voor de slag om Stalingrad. Ook buiten kantooruren was hij bereikbaar en beschikbaar om ons te helpen. Hij heeft een ontmoeting geregeld met Sergei, die ook erg vriendelijk was en veel interessante vonsten heeft gedaan in de omgeving van Stalingrad. Een extra dag had prima gekund, daar er nog veel te zien is in de 'kessel van Stalingrad' Ook na terugkomst thuis toonde Mikhail zich betrokken, echt een plus punt! Als je Volgograd wil bezoeken om de slag om Stalingrad dan is er geen betere manier dan met Mikhail en Sputnik Travel de stad en de omgeving te bezoeken. Zo is met de gids de taal geen barrière en kom je op plaatsen die weinigen maar kennen.

Excellent and Engaging Military Tour

I went on the 3-day Stalingrad battlefield tour with my dad who is passionate about the military history of Volgograd. Mikhael's tour was really engaging and interesting, for both someone with an extensive knowledge of the subject, and a beginner to the area.

Highlights include going to a local fish market, standing on a battlefield finding discarded bullets and getting a personalised museum tour by the local school teacher and finding about the lives and sacrificies of the Russians involved.

What really stood out was Mikhael's attitude of visiting areas off the tourist path which made for a truly authentic experience. As my dad summarises: "The history enthusiast's dream".
