We are planning a stop also in Yekaterinburg during our Trans-Mongolian route in next August.
We'll arrive there late in the evening, leaving in the evening the day after.
We would like to spend the morning visiting the EU-Asia border and the Ganina Yama monastery, while in the afternoon to have a walking tour through the city.
Would you recommend to dedicate time to EU-Asia border and to the Ganina Yama monastery, considering limited time we'll have? Or it is better to dedicate all the time we have to the city visit?
In case yes, we would like to avoid organized tours. From what we see online, they seem really "touristically tailored" and really expensive for what they offer, while we would prefer something more flaxible to our needs.
Would it be feasible in your opinion simply rent a taxi to be driven there?
Or, do you have any Driver/Guide you could recommend for helping us in organizing such excursion?
Many thanks in advance!
