We would do this tour again. Highly recommend it!

Hi Alex, My husband and I want to thank you for affording us the opportunity to have one of the most impactful, enjoyable trip experiences of our lives. From start to finish, our trip to Moscow and St. Petersburg exceeded all of our highest expectations. This was due in great part to the expertise of the guides that you have employed. Although our initial guide, Rita Babakina was ill (and unfortunately, I can't remember the name of her substitute, but I'm sure that you do!), her substitute was outstanding, as was Oleg Tkachenko. Both were extremely knowledgeable, engaging, and very accommodating. They made every day in Moscow wonderful. Masha Ganina was equally erudite, making every minute interesting with facts and anecdotes.

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.
