A remarkable weekend. Very well organised. Guide speaks excellent English and is very approachable. We stayed in eco station which is in a beautiful forest with lakes and river. Many times there is chances for bird ringing and learning about the birds. You can also spot other mammals who live in the forest. The home made food is delicious and they are happy to cater for any dietary needs. We wish we could have stayed longer and would like to visit again to experience the spring/summer. Thank you.Nicola W.
The best tour company I had to deal with in Belarus. Definitely would recommend these guys, both for regular tourism and visiting the exclusion zone of Belarus! The exclusion zone there is very different to that of Ukraine, so it's awesome if you manage to visit both. Regarding the tour company, I really liked how people at WalkToFolk are committed to doing something really unique, are very responsive and are always ready to help. If it's your first time in Belarus - definitely call these guys!Anton
Closer to nature than anything I did in years, probably. I did a two day kayaking tour with Walk to folk, and it couldn't have been better. Everything was thought through, starting from food and individual diets, to all the gear we needed. We kayaked through incredibly diverse landscapes, gathered herbs for tea on the spot, and had amazing conversations during those two days. I will definitely do more tours with them.Maria D.
We had such a great time touring the beautiful yelnya bog! Both our guide and tour organizer were very knowledgeable and passionate about the region. Highlights of the trip were getting to swim in two scenic bog lakes and having a delicious home-cooked meal at a homestead. I would definitely do this trip again and would love to try one of the other tours as well. Thanks again for the wonderful experience!Olivia Knodt
Very interesting and unusual way to spend time in Belarus and see the beauty of its nature. The guide was very attentive and knowledgeable, I would definetely recommend this tours to foreigners coming to Belarus. They can custom-make your experience and organize everything for you. And - this is a social project helping rural Belarus discover and use its many unique features!Anastasiya Matchanka
Karina was a wonderful guide for our two-day tour of the Polesie State Radioecological Preserve (the Belarusian side of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone). She met our group in Minsk and traveled with us to the preserve and back. We saw a fascinating mixture of wildlife and abandoned settlements. We also spoke with workers in the preserve, who were happy to provide information about the many ongoing projects in the region. Karina was a friendly and helpful host, fluent in English, and an invaluable link to the local personnel. I would highly recommend her tours!Jesse
Our visit in the Belarus Exclusion Zone was amazing, but even more so because of our guide Karina who made it special. The land arrangements, meals and tour content were unique, and her impeccable English and friendly approach added volumes to this unique experience. We were on time and on point despite the complex itinerary and rugged terrain, and the information and narrative delivered was very interesting and unique even for seasoned Zone travelers.Evan
The host was amazing and friendly, the tour was excellent as we were free to do what we want while we were guided. They provided us with all necessary guidance and instructions to feel safe while in the lake. I recommend everyone.Adeeb Hameed
We went for kayaking on 16 Aug 2017. It was really amazing. It was like an international event, we met many people from different countries. I'm sure I'm going to make it again. I have to give special thanks to Karina.Sulaiman Aburas
