I cannot speak highly about my experience. The country is beautiful, the people were lovely, the history is interesting and our guides Katya + Natasha were above and beyond the call of duty to help us with extra information and facilitating extra visits whenever possible. They are both a credit to the company and the country.
I really enjoyed the overnight train and all our coach drivers were great. I liked being able to walk around the cities and use the local public transport to see the cities from a more local perspective. Thanks to Natalya, our tour guide, who was absolutely brilliant!
Here's a short resume' of my most exciting and enjoyable tour to St. Petersburg and Moscow, I chose the Russian Revolution package.
My tour was a huge success, so much so, that I am contemplating another one, in the not too distant future. Your professional and efficient managing of the necessary details of the tour deserves a special mention. Top marks to you. You acquitted yourself of your task with applause.
I cannot praise On the Go Tours enough for ensuring that my airport transfer and hotel booking in St Petersburg were conducted without a hitch. Arriving in St Petersburg at a late hour, I was on tender hooks - for fear that I would not be met at the airport, my gears were soon dispelled when the driver waited with a clearly marked "on the go" sign. This driver must be commended for going out of his way to make me feel welcome. Despite the utterly restraining language barrier, he went the extra mile to show me the sights of St Petersburg en route to the hotel. This welcome was further enhanced, when Tatiana, our guide, made a timeous call, whilst I was in the car, to assure me and welcome me. What more could I ask for?
The tour itself was extremely well planned and conducted - Tatiana, I hasten to add, is a guide - par excellence! Her knowledge command of the English language overwhelmed me, so was her meticulous planning and attention to detail, nothing was left to chance.
The choice of hotels cannot be faulted. We were a small group which soon gelled. Thank you On the Go for putting me up with a Mike, my room mate. What a splendid genuine and sincere guy he is.
Males breakfast, very very filling - offering an excellent choice.
Special mention must be made too, our very own enjoyable and entertaining, albeit short stop in Novgorod. I enjoyed it so much putting my braaing skills to good use!
Although I have a comprehensive knowledge of Russian culture, history and architecture, nothing could prepare me for the exquisite beauty and artistert which I held when I visited the Heritage, Peterhof and those myriads of cathedrals! I was and still am, awe struck when I recount my visits.
So to you, and the On the Go team I offer my humble thanks and praises.
