2. Is it going to be extremely cold or just around -2-5C (28-41F)?

Thanks very much.
I would look at the following places if you want to plan in advance:

1. Book a tour with Advantour - they are very responsive so you could customise things to your taste.

2. Find a car and driver in Indy-Guide.

3. Find a car and driver via Caravanistan.

4. Find someone when you get there - not sure how easy / reliable this is though.

When booking I would also consider how you intend to pay. With Advantour I paid in advance which meant that I could travel “cash-light”.

Other options may require paying in cash when you are there which could mean having to carry around a large amount of cash for a while - something which you may have to declare at customs.
