Following the relaxation of visa requirements
in 2018, Belarus has finally begun to receive
the attention it deserves. The largest
landlocked country in Europe offers a smart,
clean capital city, Minsk; a rich yet bloody
history as the battle line between east and
west, as seen in the city of Brest; as well as
untouched forests where wolves and bison
still roam free. This short but comprehensive
tour takes in the highlights of one of Europe’s
hottest new destinations.
We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.
In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.
Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.
Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.
Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.
Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.
