Testimonials 2014

“Safia and I both loved St Petersburg and very much appreciated everything that was done for us. The hotel was magnificent, our guide Elena was knowledgeable, friendly and great company, our driver Sergei was unfailingly polite and safe at all times.
We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and will certainly go back to St. Petersburg one day. I have no doubt our groups will have a fantastic time on all of their future trips.
Thank you once again.”

Ian Finlay, Andante Travels, December 2014

“I just wanted to let you know that we had the most fantastic trip to St. Petersburg. Travel Russia had arranged the whole thing beautifully. Our guide, Anna and driver, Andrei, were extremely good and helpful. Anna seemed to know everything about everything and we covered a huge amount of ground with her. Also, because we had Andrei, we were able to move from one place to another very efficiently and it was very spoiling that he was able to drive us to the ballet and pick us up afterwards.
The restaurants that you had recommended were brilliant!
The Hermitage was fascinating, all the churches very ornately decorated and the ballet was exceptional in the new Mariinsky Theatre. We also went to Catherine's Winter Palace when it was snowing so very picturesque and the palace where Rasputin was murdered was fascinating. Probably our favourite place was the Faberge exhibition which I had wanted to visit ever since reading about it.
Thank you so much for all your help.”

Mr. and Mrs. Beedle, Ultimate Travel (UK), December 2014

“Mr. Bradstock said it was one of the best weekends of his life and if he was to it all again he wouldn’t change anything. He said their guide, Anna, was wonderful – very knowledgeable and charming.
The Four Seasons St. Petersburg was wonderful, 10/10.
The day they visited Peterhof, the weather was gorgeous so they went by hydrofoil and arrived at the Grand Palace to see the fountains with music. The guide got them in for their private tour which really was private – they were completely on their own with her so it was perfect.
The Hermitage visit was again completely private – Mr. Leporc, the Belgian curator, took them around personally with a security guard and there was no-one else there at all. The ballet in the evening was wonderful – the champagne was ready and waiting for them in the interval and the Travel Russia driver took them there and brought them back as arranged.
The Faberge museum was an incredible place and again it was a private tour – no queues.”

Bailey Robinson, UK, October 2014

“Back at home after what can only be described as a wonderful tour – everything worked perfectly, the guides were very good – even the weather was excellent.
Thank you very much for all your hard work that went into getting the tour on the road and making it perfect. Your efforts in trying to accommodate us were really appreciated. All in all a fantastic tour thank you very much!”

Steppes Travel, UK, July 2014

“Mr. and Mrs. Schulz-Hess and Mr. and Mrs. May have been very content with their journey, especially with their tour guide Xenia.
The clients were very glad about the composition of the places of interest and they consider the tour guide as caring, patient and informative.”

Marco Polo Reisen (Germany), July 2014

“Thank you again for a wonderful introduction to Russia – and Mocow. The Nikol’Skaya Hotel was a great place to stay, and a fabulous location.
Sunday was fantastic and my guide Natalia. We walked for miles and miles to make sure that we covered all the sights – and magically our driver always turned up at exactly the right moment when we needed to go further away. Both were excellent, but I think Natalia was the best guide I have ever had, anywhere. She was brilliant.
My grateful thanks to her – and of course you for organising my trip. I had always wanted to travel to Russia.”

Steppes Travel (UK), July 2014

“The first group this year went well and all in St Petersburg is going well in good weather. Alla and Nina were both excellent guides for the group in Moscow and of course in St Petersburg the usual guides Amina and Natasha are doing a great job.”

“Thank you, all services have been fantastic and the group really enjoyed themselves so thank you very much for all your efforts!!”

“We just got back from our trip last night and I wanted to let you know that the Russia portion organized by “Travel Russia” was absolutely wonderful. The guides were topnotch and the itinerary was perfect. Thanks for being so accommodating with the group.”

Wilderness Travel, Group 2014

“I want to thank you so much for a job well done. It is nice to know when we can rely on a great company such as yours to provide excellent service to our clients.
Arrive in Moscow. An English speaking Travel Russia representative meets you after disembarking the plane and entering the terminal to assist with completing customs and immigration formalities.
Again thank you for making this trip so memorable for my clients.”

Jamie Bell, Ker & Downey, 2014

“I would just like to inform you that my clients enjoyed their stay in Moscow. Due to the Victory Parade we had to improvise the program but the parade was very interesting and impressive. The restaurants you recommended had good food in a nice atmosphere
. The first evening we have been at the Novikov Restaurant (the former Jeroboam) of the Ritz Carlton. Very good food.
The guide has excellent knowledge of Moscow and Russia and speaks very good German.”
