Covered all of the highlights of St Petersburg and Moscow. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and had a real passion for Russian history. ”
Can't say enough about Natalia. She went out of her way to locate my luggage and handle communication with St. Petersburg airport when they lost it on my arrival and I am extremely thankful for that.
She was easy to get along with and open to answering all our questions about her country and culture. And she gave us great recommendations for places, bars and restaurants to visit. ”
Enjoyed the tour, gave a general view of west Russia. The guide was excellent, the local guides were also very good. The accommodation was good, the overnight train journey was a nice experience as was using the metro. Overall an excellent holiday and I would recommend it.”
