30 Mar ExploRussia Guide’s Camp 2018 Impressions
It was a very energetic, cool, educational, positive weekend.
ExploRussia Guide’s Camp 2018 took place on 24-25 of March in Moscow. It is an annual educational event as well as the selection step for those who want to become ExploRussia guides. ?? This year we met the huge interest from locals: we received 135 applications and selected 45 participants for the conference.?? The geography of the participants was wide: Moscow, St.Petersburg, Irkutsk, Tula, Zaraysk including our dear friends and guides from St.Petersburg Urban Adventures, our local guide Mikhail from Krasnoyarsk (who is greeting our guests at his dacha), and our local guides Tumun and his wife Elena from Ulan-Ude (who offer that special experience during the Trans-Siberian Railway trip and invite our tourists to their home to a friendly dinner with his family). The content of the conference was delivered by our current team of guides, which was informative, interactive and fun. All these people made a great contribution to make this weekend an unforgettable one. ?
It was very refreshing to meet so many young charismatic people who expressed their real interest in our values, who love Russia and enjoy foreign guests and want to change the image of Russia for the better. It was like a meeting of minds.?
So for two days, we shared our experience, personal stories, providing coaching and sharing tips on how to make an ideal excursion and as a result, our participants did it! They made their own first excursion around Kitay Gorod on Sunday. Many tourists joined our free excursion, it was a very sunny day full of thrilling stories and emotions.??
We want to thank everybody who took part in this great annual event. The event is not only the conference with the great content but also a step of the selection process. Soon we will welcome new members to our team.?
