“Excellent orientation to Moscow Had a great time wander through the city and becoming familiar with how things go. Learned a lot about the history of Russia while traversing through all the tourist spots. Hit up everything we wanted to see and do and got recommendations on everything else before we departed. We also were lucky to be accommodated by having to change the starting time due to our arrival changes and were given directions to easily reach another destination of our choosing. We were a bit apprehensive visiting Russia and this tour helped alleviate a lot of our fears and kicked off a great start to visiting Russia!”

“Dear Svetlana,
clients Kutt also were totally happy. Here is what Mr. Kutt wrote in German:
Die Reise war super, Hotel top, Reiseleiterin klasse und alles andere auch. Vielen Dank.
We are glad that we finally found a Russian partner who offers best service quality before as well as during the tour :)
Thanks a lot and best regards.”

"Thank you firstly for co-ordinating another successful tour for Renaissance Tours. By all reports from Alan and some tour members, everyone has had a wonderful experience.
Secondly, thank you for providing superb guides to assist Alan & the group, namely Natalia and Elena. Finally, a special thank you from Liz Barton to Elena. L for taking such good care of her, upon departing St Petersburg.
I’d like to thank you personally for your assistance throughout organising this tour.
You are professional, efficient and meticulous in all aspects … and an absolute pleasure to have worked with.”

We had an absolutely wonderful visit to St Petersburg. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our guide, Katya. She is incredibly knowledgeable about art and Russian history, besides being a very lovely and kind young lady.
Thank you again for all of your help and patience putting this together!”

“We had the most wonderful time in Saint Petersburg and Moscow, thank you so much . The guides in both places were really superb and everything went very smoothly. We were gobsmacked by everything!!”

“Our trip went really well. Moscow and St. Petersburg were very interesting. We were surprised how much we enjoyed Moscow because others had told us not to expect much compared to St. Petersburg. I thought the Kremlin was fascinating, as was the Novodevichy cemetery. Both guides were very good, but we especially enjoyed Natasha in Moscow. The restaurants in both towns were excellent and very reasonably priced. The Kempinski hotels were both excellent.

The Hermitage was one of the best art museums I have ever visited (and we lived in Paris for 2 years). Catherine’s Palace was remarkable. We didn’t enjoy the Peterhof quite as much as the other sites because the crowds were horrific. Had we gone at a less busy time, it would have been much better. That said, the Peterhof shuts its fountains off in early October, so there aren’t many alternatives to visiting in the busy summer season.”

“Une guide excellente avec un tres bon français et une grande culture ! Beaucoup de details tres pertinents et une grande ecoute de nos attentes avec une bonne comprehension des particularties des touristes francais.
Un tres bon moment de decouverte et d'echanges sur la Russie d'hier et d'aujourd'hui...”

“I would like to thank Travel Russia for the marvellous organization of our tour from Moscow to Nishni Nowgorod, Kasan, Susdal, Kirill-Berloserski und Ferpontow etc.... The trip went smoothly and without disturbances!
To this added, of course, the marvellous guidance by our guide Elena – a most aimable, knowledgeable, efficient and cooperative guide, just the right person to introduce us to Russia – a country widely misunderstood and deliberately badly described by Western, also German Media. She was present any time and produced expert solutions for any question concerning our program, itinerary etc.
Also our driver Nikita contributed to the perfect performance – always ready for service in his clean and comfortable car, an excellent and smart though calm and safe driver, very cooperative and always respectful!
Thus our stay in Russia developed to a great success and will remain a jewel in our memory!!

Once again: thank so much!”

Wir sind so froh, dass wir die Führung gebucht haben!
Tatjana hat uns viele Geschichten über die Geschichte Moskaus, aber auch persönliche Erlebnisse erzählt. Vielen vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit!”

C'était top!
Guide très calée, rien à redire, visite très enrichissante, je recommande.”

“Thank you for coordinating the excellent “private journey” that my wife and I just took to Russia through Wilderness Travel. Everything was done very professionally, and everyone we dealt with was excellent.
In particular, Natasha, our guide in Moscow and the Golden Ring, was outstanding. She’s very knowledgeable, very thoughtful of the needs of travelers, and a very interesting person. She also did a remarkable job in keeping to a schedule while accommodating our frequent special requests to do this or that. I cannot imagine taking another trip to Russia without making certain she would be our guide.”

“Ein prima Einstieg in unsere Moskau-Tage!
Unser Guide Oxana hat uns pünktlich am Hotel abgeholt; sie spricht perfekt deutsch. Oxana hat uns nicht nur die Hauptsehenswürdigkeiten Moskaus gezeigt und uns mit vielen Hintergrundinformationen versorgt, sondern auch das Metro-System erklärt und viele praktische Tipps für die weiteren Tage gegeben.
Obwohl wir zum ersten Mal in Moskau waren und kein Russisch sprechen, konnten wir uns dank Oxanas Einführung in den Folgetagen problemlos orientieren und selbstständig die Stadt erkunden. Nochmals ein großes Dankeschön an unseren Guide Oxana!”

Great personal guide
We had our guide meet us at the hotel, together we walked to the Kremlin and on the way we started to hear the stories about our surrounding. Very interesting and very nice. The guide was a lovely person, answered all of our questions and made the day a great experience!”

Wunderbare Einführung ganz nach eigenen Wünschen
Wir wurden von unserem Guide, der russischen Oxana mit hervorragenden Deutsch-Kenntnissen pünktlich in unserem Hotel abgeholt. Dank ihrem akademischen Hintergrund sowie ihrer langjährigen Reiseführungstätigkeit war sie für uns natürlich eine ideale Begleiterin. Sie konnte all unsere Fragen mühelos beantworten und uns wunderbar in die Historik von Moskau einführen. Wer nicht mit einer Gruppe reist, ist mit einem solch wunderbar geführten und auf die persönlichen Bedürfnisse abgestimmten Rundgang zu Fuss und mit der Metro durch Russland sehr gut bedient. Preis/Leistung stimmt. Vielen Dank für diese tolle Tour, die wir sehr kurzfristig gebucht hatten.”
