Tour guide was excellent. I would suggest that clients should all buy a local sim card (300rb) so as to stay in touch and that if they use atms for money to draw out enough for the tour costs and some spending money at the airport on arrival; at least for St. Petersburg at atms are scarce.
Visit to Novgorod should have been a day trip, leaving at 7.30. and then the bullet train to Moscow the next day. We wasted half a day travelling there, the full day in the city and then arrived in Moscow at 4.30 tired with a day tour ... not good.
The Faberge museum, near the hotel, is a must see and should be included with a guide from the museum.
The group was great fun, including snowball fights, the guide was very relaxed and that helped the social cohesion but the guide did say it was one of the best groups she had had from that aspect.”
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and loved our tour guide. At times the tour did feel a bit rushed but of course there is never enough time to see and do everything. Our tour guide was very helpful and knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We appreciated that she always laid out the plans for the day ahead of time so we knew what to expect. Would definitely recommend the tour to friends and family. ”
The Snowball New Years tour was fantastic. It was a lot to see in just a few days however I felt satisfied leaving Russia that I saw and did everything I wanted there. I loved having some free time in both St. Petersburg as well as Moscow. Both cities are quite large and have a lot to offer. I will definitely visit again, perhaps in the summer to see how the cities look like when gardens, flowers are in full bloom. My guide made an incredible tour just about perfect. Alina was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive to the tour team. It was also a great experience to be in Moscow during New Years which is a very significant holiday in Russia. We watched the fire works show right in the city centre. ”
