Escorting guides and accompanying staff

The group tours, premium, MICE and VIP travel packages usually require more flexibility from the guides and experience in coordination the large groups to follow the program itinerary. We offer the escorting guide services for the large groups and tourists, who prefer to have hand-to hand guiding services throughout the tour. There are fewer German, French, Japanese, Chinese, Italian-speaking local guides than English and Russian speaking guides in the cities, therefore for German, French, Japanese, Chinese, Italian-speaking groups and tailor-made private tours we may offer the escorting guide services. According to the group programs, the guides may accompany the group during the train tours and flights facilitating the baggage issues, meals arrangements in the cities and timing.

Please note the guides may stay in the different hotels, that the group hotel accommodation, guide services are not included for leisure, free days, free time and night activities, unless they are preliminary agreed.

All the expenses of the escorting guide during the tour- guide accommodation, train and air tickets, and necessary transfers will be included in the guide service prices.
