Nick Marcoulakis from Tropical Tours, Mavrommati Party from Greece, Moscow, August 2009

“...She loved her trip and said Ludmila (the guide) was wonderful of course and the driver was 'the sweetest man ever' and looked after her so well. Nothing went wrong and it was all perfect. The Mechta was a very good hotel with good food and the local guides were very good as well. The cafes where they ate lunch had delicious food and the scenery was beautiful. She wanted me to thank you so much for organising so well. With many thanks to you, Ludmilla and the driver...”

Janet Andrews, Ultimate Travel, Feedback after Lady Cavendish trip to Polenovo – Orel - Spasskoye Lutovinovo - Bolkhov – Optina Pustyn – Kaluga August 2009

“Well, it should be no surprise that you succeeded once again with a custom tour!
My client sent me an email today and began by writing "THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU". She raved about her guide, Olga, and her driver, Dimitri. She indicated that Olga was very informative and interesting. Now that she has returned home she misses that they weren't waiting for her this morning to do something fabulous...again!
In essence, she wrote she simply loved everything. Of course I knew she would since you're the queen of Russian touring!”

Karen Storkely, Journeys of Distinction, Feedback after the Pierris Family trip to St Petersburg, August 2009

“... St. Petersburg was "fabulous, fabulous, fabulous" and the Hermitage was a dream come true for her. They loved their guide, Masha, and said she was "fabulous plus". They hope Masha enjoyed being with them as much as they enjoyed being with her... -- Both of them were enthusiastic in their praise for Travel Russia, Masha, the special tour with the Hermitage curator, and their overall great journey in "wonderful St. Petersburg". They were very enthusiastic! Thank you, thank you!”

Karen Storkely, Journeys of Distinction Feedback after the Belins Family Family trip to St Petersburg, August 2009

“Wow! I've never, ever been so blown away but such beauty ! We just had the most incredible time, It really was amazing from beginning to end and utterly blissful.
Thank you so much for all you did and all your arrangements. We all fell in love with our guide Masha, without whom, it would have been not nearly so thrilling. She was a total genius in making it fun, interesting, energetic and so memorable.
It really was a trip of a lifetime, so thank you very much.”

Feedback after Lonsdale Family visit, St.Petersburg, May 2009

“We had a wonderful trip to St Petersburg, which we thought was a stunning city. And Elena was an absolutely charming and professional guide - we learned a lot from her, and enjoyed her company. If people ask you about the Pushka Inn, we would recommend it highly - both for its central position, but also because they staff provided a friendly and good service, and the rooms were comfortable.So thanks for all your help!”

Thank you for your excellent organisation of a trip of a lifetime!”

Feedback after Raeside family visit, St.Petersburg, April 2009

“I cannot begin to tell you what a grand success our trip was. Elena, so educated, grand knowledge of history, full of fun and rather pretty. She was with us for every second, was SO sweet and planning each day so as not too tiring. We saw every Palace, each more magnificent than the last, goodness what collections they made, esp Catherine the Greatt, and the Yussopov’s. I was fascinated by the Church of the Blood , the memorial to Alexander who died there and the small chapel across the road. We loved the summer palace of Catherine the Great and of course were emotional to see the Church of the Peter Paul Fortress where the Romanov’s have finally come to rest. We went to several charming Russian restaurants, loved the Astoria, and I couldn’t resist buying a little egg to wear round my neck! So all in all it was perfect. Then, quite unexpectedly, in the airport, we were given first class treatment, went in front of all the queue and zipped through passport control, like a dream. Please thank the office in Russia for arranging that. It made quite a difference to the waiting ... Thank you so much for all your hard and thoughtful work on our behalf! ”
