Our guide Victoria spoke excellent English and she picked us up at the hotel on time. On the way to the factory, she also gave us some very helpful tips for our stay in Minsk. In the factory, we were first shown a German-language film about Belaz in the factory museum and we received safety instructions. Then we went by bus across the factory premises and we got a good overview of the large system and the various production lines. In the on-site exhibition we were able to view all models live side by side and were allowed to enter them - the dimensions go beyond imagination! Afterwards we visited the production and all our questions were answered competently in good English. For the finale, we were allowed to drive as a passenger in one of the large dump trucks over the factory test track (option). Many thanks to Victoria and her team for this wonderful trip!

My recommendation for friends of technology

The transfer from the hotel went smoothly and the factory tour was a highlight for fans of XXL vehicles. A ride with a truck as a passenger rounded it off successfully. For me the right decision to book this trip.

Both Sergey and the Catalina guide, a 10. Totally recommended. You learn a lot about the city and the culture of the country, with friendly people, who know and in the case of the guide with perfect Spanish.

The excursion is super. I liked everything very much. Informative and interesting. Thanks to the guide :-) !!!

Nice walking tour with great guide and driver! Book with confidence! 5 stars
