Review about Connoisseur's Russia by Mary

Rating: 5
Dear Dora, Sorry I haven't written sooner to tell you what a fantastic time we had on the Three Capitals tour to Kiev, Moscow and St. Petersburg. Thank you for all your help and patience in organizing a wonderful tour for us. It was exceptionally well planned and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything went very smoothly and the guides were extremely knowledgeable, helpful and always prompt. The hotels were very nice and it was good of you to move us to the Marriot Hotel in St. Petersburg. It was a little more out of the way but it had a shuttle bus into town and had a safe in the room and other modern conveniences that we did not have at the Asteria. The Churches, Cathedrals, Palaces, Metro in Moscow and Museums, especially the Hermitage were magnificent and it was such a special feeling to be in the famous Red Square. Also, we were surprised to find how modern 'downtown' Moscow and St. Petersburg are and how friendly and helpful the Russian people were in both cities. The train from Moscow to St. Petersburg was a pleasant surprise. Very comfortable, modern, clean and they even served 3 choices of breakfast in the morning. I will definitely recommend the Three Capitals tour and East-West Tours to my friends. And, when I decide to go back to Russia again, will most certainly go with your company. Thank you again. Best regards, Mary

a fantastic time
