Great Petersburg to Beijing Trip

Alex helped us plan a combined tour of St. Petersburg and taking Trans-Siberian from Moscow to Beijing. Alex was super responsive and very helpful in planning everything. Lots of support before and after departure, with clear communication. – Rob W -

Thank you!!

Hi Bobby, We just recently returned from our St. Petersburg tour and it was outstanding. The hotel was truly lovely and Anna, our tour guide was amazing! She was so knowledgeable and very passionate about showing us her city. She definitely went above and beyond. Alexander, our driver was terrific as well. We had an amazing experience and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The ferry was a very different cultural experience but good value and entertainment! Passport control was a bit of a nightmare, but we had fun meeting new and interesting people! It couldn’t have turned out better. Many thanks for everything. Regards, Phil and Karen Lewis – Phil and Karen Lewis -

McRae Russa trip

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.

Moscow - Astrakhan Volga cruise

It was a unique chance to see many different parts of Russia in one trip. It was very well arranged and we enjoyed it completely. To chose this cruise was a very wise decision. We saw the bests of Moscow and also got a feeling for Russian village life. The boat was comfortable and very clean. We used the balcony a lot and really enjoyed the weather and the beauty of the waterways. Overall it was a fantastic experience to be remembers for the years to come. Highly recommend East West Tours for their customer oriented services. My special thanks to Dora. Her advise was very professional and useful. Liz Myong – Liz Myong -

Thank you for a splendit tour

We started looking for a cruise a year before and selected Moscow – Astrakhan M/S "Nikolay Chernishevsky" because it looked so extraordinary and East West Tours were very professional in giving us all possible details about this cruise. They are real experts. The ship was very nice and comfortable , the crew was attentive and we really felt cared for. We particularly enjoyed the lessons that we had on history and the language. Shore excursions were enjoyable and interesting. We especially liked small town/city visits. The tour guides were excellent and very nice people. It's a pity we had too little time to spend in those small shore places to browse the crafts and local items available in many of them.

I wish to thank you for all your help in planning our trip from St. Petersburg to Moscow. All went very well. The train ride was uneventful. We did need some assistance from the concierge at our hotel in St. Petersburg in deciphering the signs in the railroad station. We had her write our the words "departure" and "arrival" in Russian, so we would know what track our train would be leaving.
