Ekaterinburg Guide Centre information
Organises English-language tours of the city and trips into the countryside, including Nevyansk, Tobolsk and Nizhnyaya Sinyachikha, as well as winter activities and summer hiking and rafting expeditions. Day trips cost anything between R1500 and R8800, depending on destination and numbers. It also books hotel and hostel accommodation, often at discount rates.
The centre can also take you to the historic but hard-to-reach Verkhoturye. If taking the seven hour tour to Nevyansk and the nearby old potters’ village of Tavolgi, ask to stop on the way at the village of Kunary, where a local blacksmith has turned his wooden izba into a masterpiece of naive art.
