Thank you very much for your wonderful travel organization and execution on site. Belarus was for us a largely “unknown” part of Europe. We couldn’t have gotten to know it better!
As a group of five we were certainly a challenge. The trip went from Minsk along many stations to Brest and from there back via just as many stations. In addition there were our special wishes – like memorial and cultural sites as well as the Bialoviezha forest – which were all fulfilled in an individual way. Even on site you are still flexible and uncomplicated when it comes to programme changes and have made everything possible for us, while our eyes often fell out of exhaustion.
Through your open, friendly and affectionate nature we have not only got to know places, history and past life, but also many kind people and a piece of Belarusian life and everyday culture. The numerous different places, accommodations and encounters remain in our memory and arouse our interest to get to know more, for example the northeast.
The Belarus trip – and above all with you as a tour guide and the drivers Pavel and Sergej, but also with the other committed and competent city guides especially in Minsk – we will recommend continiously.
Thank you very much and good luck for this special way of travelling and discovering your country!

I have booked a 5 day tour to Minsk and surroundings. There was a full day tour to Witebsk, a half day tour to Chatyn and a full day tour to Nyasvish and Mir included. There was always a driver and a guide for me.
The driver Pavel was a safe and attentive driver who also made birdwatching possible for me. I saw storks, falcons and eagles. Sveta was my guide except for the tour to Witebsk. She showed me Minsk and its surroundings in a remarkable way, shone with knowledge and brought me closer to Belarus with many anecdotes. Her German skills are outstanding and she was a very pleasant companion.
Overall I am very impressed by the country as well as by the people who care for me and would like to express my sincere thanks.
We from the philosophical club Zurich had decided to get to know a country unknown to us so far. Our idea was to talk to interesting people from the fields of literature, art and politics and to make an impression about this country.
Sveta was responsible for the organization of the trip and the contacts. Not only is she a pleasant personality, thanks to her competence our expectations were exceeded. Thanks to Sveta’s commitment and connections, our trip was a complete success. Minsk is a very interesting city because of its history, but also because of its current cultural life. A trip organized by Sveta is recommended to everyone.

Once again my sincere thanks for the excellent planning, organisation and supervision of the trip. It couldn’t be better: the quick answers to every inquiry, the perfect German, the very individual layout, the responsiveness to all wishes, the excellent contacts, the care in planning, the very good support on site. This is the kind of travel organisation one would wish for. This can only be recommended with great praise.
Maybe next year we will go to the Literature Forum in the artists’ village Kaptaruny by Artur Klinau. You see: the visit has consequences, Belarus wants to be discovered. That is also your merit. My thanks again for that.
With kind regards,
Sveta provided me with a wonderful tour of Minsk, Mir and Nyasvizh. The tour was excellent. The rich and tragic history of this diverse and complex country came alive with Sveta’s thoughtful and thorough narrative. She was the consummate professional, spoke excellent English and was attentive to every detail. I highly recommended Sveta and g4 tours.
Hoi Anna and Hannes,
We have returned with many positive impressions from our round trip to Belarus. Those were really two intensive weeks, we did not expect Belarus to be such a multi-faceted country and that without Russian we would have so many touching interpersonal encounters. It is really fascinating how untouched the country is, even though it is in the middle of Europe. A secret tip.
In any case, we will continue to tell it and will certainly come back again in the next few years.
Two photographers from Switzerland were on a 17-day nature trip through Belarus in 2015:
Well, our journey home was pleasant and we found everything good at home.
We are full of unique impressions, beautiful natural landscapes, cordial encounters and of course we were all around super cared for and everything was organized by both of you. Thanks again for that. We have already told about our experiences so many times and will continue to do so…… and hope to inspire someone so much that new customers for you will emerge from it.
