Let's get acquainted. My name is Irina Goncharova. As a certified guide, I offer excursions around Tver and the Tver region, both overview and thematic. I work with different categories of tourists: with adults, with children's groups, I really like working with individual tourists, where there is a more explicit feedback. My task on the excursion is to present not myself, but our wonderful region. The highest assessment of my work is the words of a tourist that he has fallen in love with the Tver region and wants to come back here again.
