I’ve travelled a lot and was very impressed with the whole trip. It was well organized and our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable about the area. I would definitely do another tour with On the Go. I have already recommended it to my friends. There was a good mix of options and free time to explore. ”
Great tour, enjoyed every minute. Our main guide and local guides were highly knowledgeable and the itinerary was spot on. Olga looked after us very well and we appreciated her sense of humour and expertise. All in all a great success and I now feel I know Russia from first hand experience rather than just reading about the country in the media. ”
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.”
