I had a fantastic trip, Dasha is a wonderful tour guide, she is very intelligent and charming, she is very passionate and knowledgeable about both St Petersburg and Moscow. I always felt confident that she knew what she was doing with regards to the itinerary and any other activities. The time went in really quickly at the end I did feel that there was still more to see in Moscow, which I enjoyed immensely. I enjoyed the tours to the palaces and the cathedrals, also the activities, which included the Ice Breaker cruise, the Vodka Museum, the Moscow Bunker, the Cossack show, I also went to the Space Museum of Cosmology in Moscow on my own and I would highly recommend this museum as there was a great deal of variety in the exhibits and a good gift shop. There is more to Moscow than St Basil's Cathedral and the Kremlin. Take lots of pictures.”
Dasha was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her country. The history of St Petersburg came to light when she spoke about her home city.
The Tour itself was good, if but a scratch on the surface of a fascinating country overall to get a small insight into such a large country, I would recommend this tour. ”
Dasha was fantastic! probably the best tour guide I have had in the 20 years I have been doing tours. I will definitely do another tour with On the Go just because of her. She looked after my parents well and was extremely patient and informative with all customers. I would thoroughly recommend as she made the tour for us. The tour was good as well and the sightseeing well organised.”
