We Are working on new pages for our Best Vladivostok city Tours
When we started Your Local Guide we faced the problem with creating the WebPage. We had no budget to pay a reliable good company to do this job for us and we did not wanted to bother our friend to do not paid job, so we made a decision to make it our own. We had absolutely no knowledge about what is it and how to do it but here we are. Now we are working on new page for our tours of Vladivostok, we want different pages for Vladivostok city tours and for Vladivostok outdoor and activity tours and of course we would like to make them more comfortable and usable. Here you may check how would look the page with city tours and of course here are some extra toors available on this page https://yourlocalguide.ru/vladivostok-citytours .
Hopefully we will renew our web within next week and our clients will have more then 6 new tours to choose from. Stay tuned .

The Mighty Pidan mountain
Every local resident considers it his duty at least once to visit this mountain.Why? what is so Special about this place?
2 days ago was first in this year successful commercial ascend to Pidan mountain. Before, in this year already was 3 attempts to do this but clients was not really ready for trekking like this.
If you ask any person on a street about Pidan they will tell you a lot of mystical stories. NatGeo came here to film a movie about flying men who is screaming in the night and eat lost tourists brrrr. Others will tell you about 3 witches who are forever young and often come out to those who are trying to reach the summit of mountain. Other will tell you about lost civilization of Bahai people for whom Pidan was a place of power and saint energy. Anyway this mountain each year during season attracts thousands of tourists and of course we do organize trekking tour to mountain Pidan from Vladivostok.
After the storm there is no road for now to mountain footsteps so it took us around 9 hours of trekking from place where our KAMAZ stoped and back. We spend a great day reaching the summit of Pidan. Really you can feel some energy when you getting close to the top. Some people can not believe they were strong enough to do that some are just feel absolute happiness. Tour to mountain Pidan is a unique opportunity to see the wilderness of Taiga (Siberian forest) meet some wildlife and of course to test yourself. If you are interested in visiting mountain Pidan please feel free to ask us any questions and lets go do this.

New Vladivostok seafood Tour
On This weekends we've found new interesting place for visit. On the real end of Russky island at the "Voevoda Bay" located an really interesting object which is truly worth the visit. Seafood farm located in a barge moored to the shore. At a depth of one meter under the water there are plantations of oysters and sea cucumber, as well as scallops. There is also a laboratory for growing algae for feeding. We bought several kilograms of live scallops for our company, we were given a knife and soy sauce, this is all that locals need to enjoy fresh seafood, we opened the scallop ourselves, cleaned it, poured it with sauce and ate it - it was great, nothing is better then fresh seafood delicacies. Later we talked with the administration of this farm and agreed on the possibility of bringing our clients here for a tour, we also agreed that the price will include tasting scallops and oysters.We are always searching for new experience for our clients, we try our best to provide you with the best Vladivostok tours we can. Stay tuned to our Tours tab, there will be a very tasty offer soon.
