Review about Russia Express with Novgorod by Mimmi Tannen

Rating: 5
Hi, Dora, our trip to Russia was very good. The main guide was excellent- understood what we wanted and was very accommodating, as was the driver. I didn’t have time to shop at the local market because we had to get to Sergiev Posad- if I had to do it over I would cut short a church and visit the shops, but not everyone would feel that way. Other than this, it was a very good trip, and I would recommend it to friends. The lunch at the local “house” was excellent, lots of fun, good food, relaxing, etc. The tours through the towns and churches very interesting- we learned a lot. The ride through the country side and seeing the buildings added to the trip. The guide and driver could answer all of our questions. Your suggestion to stay near the airport the last night worked very well. We would do it again, and would use your services if we travel there again. Thanks for your help - everything went very smoothly. Mimmi Tannen

This tour of Russia is designed for the best perception of the historical connections between Russian capitals and about the emergence and development of Russian culture and religion. The Great Novgorod actually was a capital of ancient Russia according to one version of the Chronicles. Its influence spread from the Urals to Lithuania, and at that time Great Novgorod was the largest state in Europe. Its Kremlin is older than Moscow’s and comparing these two cities is an exciting discovery. The history of St. Petersburg began much later and witnessed the remarkable rise and fall of the Russian monarchy.
