I just want to say that Katya was an excellent guide. Her knowledge and passion for Russia is undeniable. She made my Russian experience more memorable than I could have ever imagined!
Carrie Maracle ,
Tatiana and Katya have been incredible. They made us feel so welcome, looked after us and are very knowledgeable about the history of Russia. I loved it!
Adele Thain ,
Katya is an excellent guide. Well organized, friendly, warm & knowledgeable.
Red Square at New Years was very well managed. Wonderful job!
I also enjoyed the train journey with very friendly Russians :)
Our guide, Katya, was very kind, easy going, her english was fantastic! She went out of her way to make the trip as comfortable and stress free as possible. The tour was ran smoothly and itinerary was great - especially Banya!!!
Most important part of a tour is the guide. Katya was excellent and went above and beyond throughout the tour. Her knowledge of Russian history was really impressive as well as her command of English language. She is the best tour leader I've ever had (and I have been on quite a few tours now!)
I really enjoyed the tour and had a great New Year's Eve!
our tour guide was excellent, so confident and full of information, well organised and fun. It was great not to have to stress about organisation, knowing it was all under control!
I was surprised by the comfort level of the hotels we stayed at. They were super clean and really comfortable. Excellent food as well, and a great party on New Years in Red Square!! Those Russians know how to have a good time .. I thought it was great we got to mix with them all!
