“A fantastic holiday!
I wanted to say thank you very much for looking after David and me with the arrangements. We loved Moscow as a city and managed to get VIP tickets to the Military tattoo in Red Sq. which was amazing and an added highlight!!
There was so many highlights it difficult to pin-point a favourite. The Trans-sib journey we loved, the train journey was fun and relaxing and we were well looked after by the train attendants and other passengers.
The guides in the cities were excellent and in particular the guides in Ekaterinburg and Irkutsk were outstanding. The Natural History Museum – ‘Siberia in ancient Time’ provided an excellent insight to the region.”


“My husband and I were in St. Petersburg and we want to thank you for the wonderful stay! The arrangements all went very well and we had a superb time. The hotel was fantastic and looked after us really well. We cannot praise our guide Aya highly enough. She had fantastic knowledge and made everything so interesting. We hope to return in the future and would hope that we could possibly have her as our guide again! Thank you again for everything and what a beautiful city St. Petersburg is!”


“Informativ und individuell!
Sehr gute private Reiseleitung, die auf individuelle Wünsche eingeht und Tipps gibt, die man sonst schwer bekommt. Helena hieß unsere Reiseführerin. Sehr nett, kompetent und informative.”


“A conseiller !
Une excellente guide - Natalia - qui nous a fait découvrir sa ville d'une façon fort agreeable.”


“Für einen ersten Besuch in Moskau kann ich einen oder diesen privaten Guide sehr empfehlen. Es war eine tolle informative Tour, die nach unseren Wünschen gestaltet wurde.”


“All local guides were excellent. Their breadth of knowledge and willingness to help us were outstanding. We would especially single out Natasha in Moscow who was marvellous. Please pass our thanks and gratitude back to, them all.”


“Our 2 guides Helen Asafova (Moscow) and Svetlana Tumanova (St Petersburg) were just wonderful. Not only were they extremely knowledgeable and fantastic English speakers, but most important was that they were lovely, friendly, personable ladies who really made our stay in both cities complete. Also the drivers "Timmy" and Sergei were very attentive and polite and always made sure we got to every destination safely and punctually. We cannot praise that side of our holiday too highly. It added another dimension to the trip being able to talk to the guides about life in their country, learning so much more than just sightseeing.”


“Absolut empfehlenswert
Pünktliche Hotelabholung, umfangreiche Infos schon am Weg zum Kreml, so eingeteilt, dass keine Wartezeiten, sehr gute Führerin Jelena, ausgezeichnetes Wissen und sehr gute Vermittlung in perfektem Deutsch, wir würden sofort wieder buchen”


“Perfect city tour
Happy to have spent 4 hours on a walking tour during a sunny morning in March. The guide Mrs. Oxana Larchenko did a great job showing me around and telling me about history, background stories etc. Booked a tour in German - her language skills are very professional. Recommend.”


“Es ist die ideale Lösung, um die Stadt kennenzulernen. Wir haben uns durch diese Tour selber ein Bild von der Stadt gemacht und konnten danach einfacher entscheiden, was wir noch alles sehen möchten. Wir konnten uns auch mit allen Fragen an unsere Guidin richten.”


“I just wanted to let you know I had a quick chat with Mr. Ashe this morning and they had a great time in St. Petersburg.
They thought their guide Amina was fantastic and said she really made their trip worthwhile. They also loved the Astoria Hotel so thanks for arranging it. Everything, as always, worked perfectly and they are keen to go back in future.
Once again, thanks so much for all your help.
I'm very excited for my trip in April now!”


“WIt was a very great tour! It was all organized perfectly, the program was great. And Tatjana was just great! She was so engaged in showing us everything and giving us inside on Russian culture and history. All guest were very satisfied. Of course everyone wants Tatjana as a guide now…”


“We returned yesterday after spending a thoroughly enjoyable time in such a fascinating city. I don't think either Alison, or I, were prepared for the wonders that Moscow had to offer. Our guide, Natasha, was delightful and so informative. The itinerary that you put together was amazing considering the limited time we spent in such a huge city. It is a place to revisit in the future as I think we have only just had a taster of what is on offer both in the city and surrounding area.”


“I have recently returned from a wonderful trip to Russia, arranged by the best tour operator in the U.S.A., Ker & Downey. In Moscow, Natalia was my guide, and in St. Petersburg. Elena. BOTH were extraordinary guides with so much knowledge — they were able to make history come to life. My drivers were equally wonderful, so I thank you so much. My feeling is, when you’re in a foreign country and you don’t speak the language, you’re only as good as your guide. I could not have had better ones — they are two of the best guides I’ve ever had in all of the 130 countries which I have visited and written about.”
