We had a very good time on Russian River Cruise

A Russian river cruise is the best holiday I have ever had. Our all family had such a good time. We will do it again sometime. The boat was well-appointed. There was plenty to do on the boat between the stops for sightseeing. The entertainment program was great – I liked the piano recital enormously. I would rate the cruise four plus stars. Time spent in Moscow and St Petersburg was fabulous but too short for such cities. We decided to come back and explore them further next year.The destination between Moscow and St Petersburg were not overly exciting but lovely and well chosen. Guides were knowledgeable and did their best to amuse us. In Mandrogui we bought quality handicrafts for very low prices.

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.
