Dear “Kamchatka Vision” Thank you for making this wonderful adventure happen. Special thanks to people directly looking after us for eight days Rafting on Opala River Adventure. Egor for being such a good Leader, Anatoly and Sacha for rafting us with great dedication, Angela for great cooking and the truck drivers for driving us Safely to and from the River. It is stunning country with so many bears and fishing you can only imagine. Rafting on Opala River and seeing bears catching fish so close to us was an unforgettable experience. They even had a sauna for us on the raft which they set up on the bank of the River! Just amazing!

Dear Vision of Kamchatka team, I have really enjoyed the Classic Kamchatka tour (12-24 July 2017). We were a mixed group of foreigners, mostly non-Russian speaking. Although we were a bit unlucky with the weather and some parts of the program did not take place as a result (e.g. the helicopter flight to Geyser Valley was cancelled), we still got to see some amazing scenery while hiking, rafting and on the road.
The entire crew (4 persons) was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. The food cooked by Irina was superb and included great variety of fish and local specialties. I have admired Vladimir’s driving skills in very difficult terrain. As we were a small group (10 people plus crew) we had enough space inside the Ural while traveling. Sergey (guide) and Viktoria (interpreter) looked after our group’s comfort and safety and we have had many laughs along the way. Sergey is a great guide, a problem solver and has a lot of passion for what he does. He’s got a wealth of knowledge about local wildlife and experience to share. I would only encourage him to communicate more actively with the whole group, not just with Russian speakers – it would be a pitty for anyone to miss out on his interesting stories. Overall, highly recommended tour and company.
Thank you for the unforgettable 2 weeks. I’m sure I will be back soon.

Dear team of Vision of Kamchatka!
You are special, because your kindness and cordiality deeply touched, likewise the splendid pure nature of your beautiful country. We are very thankful for the great happiness we were given during our entire trip. And you are an essential part of this happiness. We were on the tour "Classic Kamchatka - North" in June - July 2017.
The travel was perfectly organized with the right portion of adventure and quite a lot of love. We felt completely comfortable and wandered astonished from one highlight to the other.
Thank you, dear Egor and Roman, our strong, enthusiastic guides. You have done everything perfectly on the spot so that everything works. You have made the right mix of personal freedom, information and shared experience. We felt well cared for with you. And with incredible patience you have always dealt with our individual desires, made everything possible. It is beautiful how respectfully you deal with nature. We did not miss out you collected rubbish of other people on the hike.
Thank you, dear Volodia, master of your Ural! Securely you have driven through the impassable taiga and have repeatedly traveled back to some extra difficult tracks for Roland to film. You have greeted us joyfully waving from the roof of your Ural to the river, and your laughter, your cordiality, and the affectionate love for your home remain in our memory.
Dear Natasha, you are sunshine and a sorceress. Every day in the wilderness we indulged in unbelievable dainties, which can not be found in any hotel, because they had two exquisite ingredients: love and nature. We dined like the kings. When Natasha comes, the sun rises. It was wonderful how you and Volodia were singing for us “Katjusha”.
Dear Tatyana, from the first mail contact to the end of our trip, you have looked after us perfectly and reliably, you and Olga and the team of Vision of Kamchatka. You were always friendly and reachable despite our thousand wishes and inquiries and helped us a lot. Such a commitment is something special, only someone who is with the heart in the matter can do it.
Thanks to Maria and Andre for the wonderful day trips we had with you after the tour.
Dear Vision of Kamchatka Team, it 's a great job you do. It is also good for your beautiful country. For in this way you call out mindful tourists to Kamchatka who want to experience the beauty of nature without exploiting it. Thank you. We will be back.

Dear Vision of Kamchatka Team!
Many many thanks for an unforgettable adventure trip. All of us enjoyed the 14 days in Kamchatka very much. Special thanks to Tatyana who has organized everything perfectly in the background, to Kirill and Anatoli, our great tour guides, who did not just lead us through the wilderness, but also surprised us with poetry, to Ludmila, our kitchen-fairy who was able to cook better meals in the field than some of the hotel kitchens in town and also to Sever, our brave watch dog who kept the bears out of our camp grounds. (What can happen without Sever our neighbors could see after they lost half of their food supplies in one night... :-0)
We all will remember forever the two weeks in wild Kamchatka with its volcanoes, wild rivers and bears - and who knows: maybe we will make use of our valid for 72 years gift certificate at some point of time and come back... Many thanks again!

Hi, I'm Cho.
Now I've arrived in Khabarovsk for staying one night before going back to Korea.
The whole time I spent in Kamchatka was really unforgettable experience for me. I loved everything in Kamchatka and the service you offered. Sometimes it was not easy for me and my 7-year-old son to go through all the programs provided since we were not fully equipped - I'm afraid it must have bothered your staff at times, so I'd like to really appreciate for all your staff's sacrifice, professional attitude and dedication.
Thanks epecially for kirill and sasha, and the great cook lady. The food was fantastic so I could fully enjoy myself. I hope to have a chance to visit Kamchatka again and your people someday if possible.
Best regards, Cho.

Dear Irina, Boris, Juri, Natasha, Irina and Volodia!
Thanks again for the great trip, it was a wonderful experience! We learned a lot of interesting “INFORMATION” about volcanoes and the region! The road was great! We would have loved to practice our Russian a bit more – then we could talk within this in English! We hope to see you again – in Germany!
From: Katarina and Michal from Slovakia
Dear Kamchatka Vision thank you very much for interesting tour. We enjoyed our time in Kamchatka. What we especially liked was the attitude of all the guides esp. Kirill, Ivan, Sasha and all the other staff members esp. Luda. They were all very helpful and friendly. We liked the organization of the tour, how everything worked on time and all problems were solved promptly and professionally. For the future to make your tours even better we would suggest to find better hotel in Paratunka, because food, staff and mostly room were really bad. And also we would appreciate more exact information in the tour description in the internet. For example it says the Mutnovsky ascent takes 8 hours but it was only about 3 hours in reality, we expected more hiking there and less “URAL” transport. Also when tourists have free days be ready to suggest activities to do in the area (like surfing, kayaking). However, we really enjoyed our time here, we wish you all the luck and KEEP UP WITH THE GREAT WORK!
I thank you, your boss and the company for your support, of course Ivan (gogo) and Katia too.
We had a very nice experience in such amazing place...who knows maybe 1 day we will have the chances to get back.
Here the link of my bed and breakfast http://www.bed-and-breakfast-in-italy.com/pagina.cfm?ID=16835&IDregione=9 the web site will be ready soon.
Also I attached you the link of the picture I have taken during my journey I hope you like them.

Dear Kamchatka Vision, My wife and I had an unforgettable journey to Kamchatka in August this year. The tours are far more than amazing and we fully enjoyed it under your organization. I'd like to say that your cook are as good as declared. The food not only fits the local tourists but also satisfy our tastes and provides enough energy for tours.
The office staff in the city's hotel is very polite and helpful. Still we think some aspects could have be improved. I note that we were almost the only foreigners in the group and language support provided to International travelers by tour guides was poor. Victor is a good guy, but could scarcely speak English as well as other guides. When the guide was saying something or discussing with Russian tourists, he wouldn't say again to us in English, unless we asked. For many times we had no idea of what was happening and what we were going to do on the next step. Sometimes we had no choice but turned to other group members who can speak English for incomplete information. Meanwhile, the guide was not offering any useful information, suggestions or warnings due to every specific tour or activity during the days, which might be important to foreign tourists that are not familiar with local conditions.
Generally, we still want to thank all your staff that helped us find a wild and terrific Kamchatka!
From: Pam and Mike Jones.
Thank you for a wonderful 10 days. We have enjoyed every minute of our time in this beautiful region. The scenery was magnificent. The guides were so competent and helpful and the food was plentiful and tasty. We have made new friends and have many wonderful memoris.We will certainly recommend this tour to our friends.

Thank you for two wonderful weeks in Kamchatka. My best regards.
I just wanted to say thanks for a really special holiday!
I had such a good time!
Thank you for your patience in answering my many questions and for organising my trip!
Everyone at Vision of Kamchatka was very helpful. Vadim was great, Katya was a great translator, Kirrill a great guide.
Andrei was a super guide, a nice person and very strong and knowledgeable. A person who gives confidence.
Though I am in Moscow, I have a vision of Kamchatka in my mind! I hope I will come back next year and I will email you after the New Year so we can discuss what summer trips you can offer.
One more thing, can you please give me the email address of Katya the translator as I would like to stay in contact with her - I meant to ask her for it but in rush of leaving did not ask for it.
