Just returned from a wonderful tour of Russia. For some reason everyone else in the group cancelled so it was just me and my wife and the lovely tour guide Natalia. She has a great command of English and was very helpful and we had a very personalised tour and a great holiday.
Natalia has a great personality, very knowledgeable, patient and helpful and a superb guide.
No issues or hassles at any points and was surprised how clean and safe Moscow and St Petersburg were compared to some other European destinations. Also food was cheap. I would advice travellers to learn a smattering of Russian particularly the script if they want to venture solo on the Metro.
The hotels were acceptable through my room the Moscow hotel - Izmailovo Hotel - Gamma-Delta was a little musty though this was compensated by the great breakfast and proximity to the Metro.
Also the bonus is the wonderful Moscow. flea market 5 minutes away.
Also I had a scare because when booked in they could not find my reservation. Be aware the Gamma and the Delta are separate hotels even though they are co-located and adjacent.
The st Petersburg Hotel (“ the Moscow”) did a more basic breakfast but the room was fresher. Be warned that you will go through at least 6 vodka shots on this tour and a lot of walking which was great. The other “on the go” Staff were very helpful also.
The best optional add is the Moscow Circus. The Peterhof palace is also a must-see. Try to separately book the Armoury in the Kremlin prior to your tour.
Don't waste money getting your private train compartment It is much more fun in the communal carriage overnight.
I would thoroughly recommend this tour - and Natalia.
The tour was fantastic. Seen everything I wanted to see and more. The three tour guides were fantastic, couldn't do enough for you. They names are MoMo, Emeair and Metu. Theses guides made the whole experience fantastic. The only downsider was the sleeper train. Never liked them and will never get to like them.”
The tour was well planned and the tour guide, Yusuf, was hands down the best guide I have ever toured with. The depth of his knowledge on all aspects of Turkish history, culture and current events truly made this trip the most memorable I have ever experienced. Not only was he knowledgeable but he was courteous and affable as well. ”
