Fantastic trip, to a beautiful country full of lovely people, who made us very welcome.
Guides were outstanding - Smart, fun, great English, versatile, and really polite and accommodating. I really cannot praise them highly enough. We even met the lady that had organised trip, for Russian pie and tea.
I honestly cannot say - it was so good
Sasha was our Moscow guide in the main, she as great, brilliant English, really got our wavelength, great in every way. St Petersburg equally good, the knowledge that they have is amazing, I really felt in good hands the whole time. An example of the excellent organisation - the itinerary said, your driver will meet you outside your wagon in st Petersburg, I am thing yeh course he will, low and behold there was our driver, waiting right outside our door on the platform. In fact every driver arrived precisely on Time, brilliant.
take warm clothes, and be relatively fit
Huskey riding, no winter palace, er the ``Kremlin....... really all of it was amazing
