Hello dear Bobby,
In a word, PERFECT! As you know, you worked and put together an extensive 4/5 country tour package for Vicki and I and what you managed to put together went remarkably well in every way possible. With very little exception, this trip now ranks as the best of our many trips, which considering the now 67 countries on all 7 continents around the globe we visited, is a big statement.
I only have a few feedback suggestions and a request:
1) Be more specific with US based guest re the hotel standards, e.g., a standard room in the US is a superior room in Europe.
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.
Our trip was truly wonderful.
Hi Alex, Our trip was truly wonderful. Both cities with their museums, palaces, and cathedrals were were awe inspiring, and we learned so much about history and culture. We had beautiful weather, and that made the visit even more perfect. The Bolshoi ballet was a wonderful experience, as was the Verdi opera at the Marinsky theater. We also (by chance) happened upon a free acappella concert in St Isaac's cathedral which was very beautiful, and so perfect in that gorgeous location.
Connoisseur's Private Russian Tour
As I have completed my tour to Russia, It gives me great pleasure to commend you and your team on the expert and professional performance. All the Tour guides, Namely, Nikolai in Moscow, Olga in the Golden Ring Route and Maria in St. Peters-burg were very friendly knowledgeable and helpful with good command of English.
