Review about Connoisseur's Russia by Juliana & Matthew McRae

Rating: 5
Dear Bobby, as you may recall, Matthew wanted to arrange our recent tour of Russia as part of our 25th Anniversary celebration. Since he did it for me, I wanted to email you with my impressions. From the greeting at the Moscow Airport by our tour guide, Marina, to the last good-bye from Elena at the St. Petersburg airport, all went extremely well. Our only hiccup was not knowing who was taking us to Suzdal but that was easily resolved. Every entry to museums, palaces and venues was eased by the knowledgeable guides. Our extra tour to Kizhi Island was amazing and the guest house was perfect as our room overlooked the lake. Food in any of the restaurants or personal homes was plentiful and delicious. Hotels were indeed 5 star. Had we known we could request a view room on a high floor, we would have done that and will remember to ask in the future. All drivers were polite and took care to be safe, yet efficient in time travel. Since this was our first experience with your firm and private tours, we both feel fortunate we were able to go with a first-rate company. Thank you, Juliana & Matthew McRae
