Wonderful tour with great guides
We recently went on the Splendors of Russia tour and had a wonderful time. We knew it would be a small group, but didn't know it would only be 3 people – so it was more like a private tour! The hotels provided were wonderful, 5 star all the way. And our guides, Alexander in Moscow and Maria in St. Petersburg, we VERY knowledgeable about their cities, the history and culture of Russia and also spoke excellent English. The transportation everywhere went without a hitch and the guides were very accommodating to my husband's handicaps in making sure he was able to participate as much as possible on the tours.
I want to say that the visa-free three-day tour in St. Petersburg was fantastic. There turned out to be seven people in our group which was great. Our tour guide (Anastasia) was right there waiting for us after Russian passport control. She was personable, educated, and excited about her work. Having taken a degree in art history, she was perfect for all the stops we made. She also was experienced in leading tours, shepherding us in and out the right doors, planning time just right, and making sure we didn’t miss a word or a highlight (of which there were about a million).
Trans Siberian Railroad from Moscow to Ulan Bataar Mongolia.
You arranged my travel on the Trans Siberian Railroad from Moscow to Ulan Bataar Mongolia. Every part of the trip went well. The tour in Moscow was short but great. The time in Irkutsk and Lake Bailal was excellent. All went well with no problems whatever. I thank you!

Poland Cities Tour
The tour organizatiion was flawlessly organized, with good hotels. The hotel in Krakow needs airconditioning though. We heard other guests complain as well – Juanita Britz -
The Polish Dream Tour was excellent - the itinerary included
I really enjoyed this Polish Dream Tour (May 31-June 16, 2019) for the inclusion of major cities (Warsaw, Gdansk, Wroclaw & Krakow), as well as seeing the country from the north (Gdansk) to the south (Zakopane in the Tatra Mountains). The sites visited, and an absolutely first-class guide (Krzysztof Kisielnicki), gave a window into the complex history of Poland that I appreciated very much. I enjoyed the free time to explore on my own when our stay was 2-3 nights; our guide was a great source of suggestions. The bus tours in the cities were kept to a minimum – the walking tours with our guide and/or local guides were excellent and much preferred.
ST PETERLINE VISAFREE CRUISE PACKAGE
We went on this 6 night 7 day program starting and ending in Stockholm with a two night stay in St. Petersburg, Russia. Our guide in St. Petersburg was a friendly and lovely young woman who spoke very good English and told us many interesting things about all the sites we visited or saw. We were glad that we had chosen Commodore Class for the ferry since that gave us prioritized Disembarkation in each of the ports we visited while on the ferry. Included was the meal plan on the ferry which provided us with a large selection of food choices at their morning and evening buffets. The Akyan Hotel we stayed at in St. Petersburg was extremely nice with excellent service. – Mike -
