Head of Customer Service Department

Igor's soul has been since long sick with tourism and, unfortunately, it seems not to be curable :-) All the time he spends in motion, likes to conquer new heights, overcome challenging rapids, crawl letter "Ju" in the caves, but still gives preference to hiking . With him it is never boring. Funny and sociable, ready to organize your holidays, entertainment or life. He would raise you eary in the morning according to the timetable, would lead you to the mountains, forests, or rivers, would feed you well, would tell interesting stories, would exaggerate them a bit for curiosity and even would sing a lullaby :-)). He adores animals and they do the same. So, if you meet a bear, you should not fear - you will escape together !!!

Back in school geography and nature were my passions. I dreamt of unexplored territories. Time passed and my dreams led me to TURE TEAM. I discovered lots of new activities as I started working. I mean ski touring, free ride, kayaking along white water and lowland rivers. Outdoor tours give me a vital doze of true emotions, and energy boost for the near future. There is the only way to keep my batteries charged. It’s again and again head for new adventures.

Serhii Sapiha

guide

Anyone who has ever gone hiking with Serhii, will never forget it. He has always the biggest and heaviest backpack; he is always ahead, and if you need assistance - always nearby. Unloading, sharing warm or dry things, supporting with a kind word or a joke is his hobby. Serhii is an inexhaustible source of energy and enthusiasm. As girls aptly note : "He is a real tourist-gentleman." Mushrooms and teas, collected and cooked by him are truly heavenly delight! Jack of all trades. Believes that better than mountains can be only mountains, and better than tourism can only be a sports tourism. Credo: "You can if you want."

guide, camp administrator

They say that searching is a lifelong status of every human being. Therefore, I used to look for things I could like. When I experienced Dniester rafting for the first time I understood that's my thing. This is the way I became a part of a professional tourists' team TURE. In short, I'm a positive person open to new and ready to share.
