The tour was awesome! The pace was just right for my whole family (my sister and I are in our 20's and my parents are in their 50's). It was flexible enough that we got to choose the activities we wanted. The hotels were comfortable and had easy access to the city center. We especially loved our stay in Novgorod in between St. Petes and Moscow. Beautiful break from the busy city life. The overnight train ride was a bit tight, but it was definitely a real Russian experience we wouldn't have missed.
Dasha was the best guide ever! She was so organized and made sure all 22 of us on the tour had everything we needed. She is very proud of her country and it showed in her excellent guiding of our group. She was loads of fun, too!
This was one of the best holidays I've had. Definitely recommend doing the winter tours in Russia. ”
My tour went as planned for the most part, the individuals who facilitated my rail travel arrangements and stays enroute did a great job. Pickups and drops were exactly per schedule and all arrangements were made clear.
A note about my stay in Moscow at the Hotel Izmailovo Gamma; As my train departure was later in the PM an extended check out would have been handy.
Also on the last leg of my tour ex. Train 208 there seemed to be confusion regarding my reservation in Carriage 11 Berth 9. I received a daily meal (higher standard than usual from those diners) which was a bonus. The "Provodnitsa" seemed to take issue with the charges shown on the ticket not being in line with the service they were providing, however in the end I was allowed to stay.
The homestays in Ekaterinburg, Irkutsk and Ulan-Ude were simple but the host's were very nice and meals very adequate.
