Very happy with our 3 day tour. Don't looking anywhere else. This is THE one!
I went with my son on this trip of a lifetime for WW2 history buffs, to where WW2 was really won, ironically on the around 6 June when all the hoopla was on about D-day etc, Mikhail showed a detailed and accurate knowledge of the history. He brought us to places that were only pictures and names in books before that. It was moving to stand on the wind swept Steppes and look down in the freshly plowed soil and see spent ammunition and shrapnel, bits of boot and helmets etc. We left our pickings in Russia out of respect inspired by Mikhail who showed great respect at all the places we visited to the dead. You will visit unique spots and see what ordinary tourists will never see, granade shrapnel marks and bullet holes on the entrance roofs of original buildings.
Insist Mikhail tells you his personal family connections with the Battle for Stalingrad. What a story and all true.
The best travel company I have ever been with
My father and I did the 3-day Stalingrad Battlefield tour at the start of June. I could not recommend this tour company enough.
We had a fantastic trip from start to finish, our guide Mikhail was spectacular, he really went above and beyond with every aspect of the tour and it was a pleasure to spend 3 days with him. On top of this, his knowledge of the battle of Stalingrad was second to none, not only that he was extremely passionate about the topic and could easily answer any questions we had (and we had a lot of them).
Russia is one of the most beautiful countries I have ever been to, it defied all expectations we had of the place. Do not be afraid to come here, especially to Volgograd, I felt safe and secure throughout the duration of our trip.
