The safety of sightseers is guaranteed during the whole excursion (in normal and emergency conditions).

The efficiency of excursion services directly depends on the quality of their organization and carrying out of the whole set of excursion activities. The quality of excursions is the key element in this set and it depends to a considerable degree on personal skills of the guide. A guide must have the following qualities: intellectuality, individuality, responsibility, dignity, active life-style.
