Vadim gave my husband and I a true learning experience. He shared an incredible amount of knowledge with us, answering all of our questions and giving us background. He is a worldly, fun, good sense of humor. We were able to enter the gorgeous library where all the other people had to stay behind the small door. Vadim shared so many interesting details of the library, the books, the hidden doors, the furniture. Breathtaking! A MUST! We got to try some of the delicious beer from both breweries while learning more about Vadim, the culture, the city. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour with Vadim!
