Samara Intour information
This highly professional travel agency has some staff who speak English and German. It can organise an individual tour into the bunker built for Stalin, and often runs excursions into the attractive Samara Bend region around Shiryaevo.
Typically excursions include rafting, horse riding and cycling, but these change according to what the local operators are offering, so ask in the lead up to the season (ie May for the summer). It also books flights and train tickets.
