“Energetic and very knowledgeable Guide. Could not have been more helpful! We enjoyed our day thanks to our Guide. The museum has been refurbished to a very high standard and we would recommend a visit.”


“Super Rundgang, super Betreuung Der Rundgang mit unserem Guide hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Wenn ich wieder in Moskau bin, gerne wieder. Kann ich nur empfehlen.”


“St Basil's early opening tour was excellent, no crowds, we were the only people in St Basil's for an hour so could see everything. Listened to a trio of singers perform. Our guide Luba was fantastic, very knowledgable, excellent English and happy to show us whatever we wanted to see. Hotel pickup made meeting point easy. Would recommend this tour.”


“Sehr interessant, guter Guide. Sehr gut! Zu Fu? und mit der U-Bahn war spannend!”


“The clients told me that they had a wonderful time. They were most impressed with the Hermitage's curator, Alexei Leporc, who was outstanding and brought everything to life. Another highlight was the cooking session. This trip was taken due to their daughter's interest in Russia and she thought it was "great" - and would love to return. The family also thought everyone was more friendly than they expected and they appreciated that.
Thanks very much!”


“I really enjoyed meeting you on our arrival. Many thanks for the gifts and your warm hospitality.
Essential tour was a beautiful journey through Russia, because of your dedication in Russian tourism. The choice of the hotels was very good specially in St. Petersburg and I am glad that we stay four nights at Taleon Imperial Hotel at the end of our trip.
The guides choice was perfect; Ms. Natalia Frolova was knowledgeable, very good English spoken, intellectual and Russian aristocratic classy character. She present Russia the way I was wishing the group to see in high level. Ms. Gulya Anastas, very good English spoken, experienced and knowledgeable guide who present past and present of Russia to our group in a very honest simple way.
The drivers were very good and the transportation vehicles was fine for our group. Thank you, the choice of restaurants and menus was excellent. Service at airports and stations was perfect help.
Thanks again for all you did to make the trip pleasant and successful and looking forward to visit Russia again soon.”

“Just to let you know that we have all had a really great time, weather was perfect, only one day of rain. The guides were so good, very flexible to accommodate our literary tastes, and so knowledgeable. They managed to fit in a visit to Ahkmatava's Museum and even drove to the outer north of St. Petersburg to see where Pushkin fought his fatal duel.
Everyone agreed that one of the highlights was Tolstoy,s Estate, Yasnaya Polyana. It was like a comfortable family home, and Tolstoy,s presence was very powerful. Both the literary and non literary in the group thought it well worth it.
The other thing that had a profound effect on us was the visit to the Piskaryovskoye Cemetery. After seeing heart-wrenching photos and a video, we walked through the cemetery. Just mounds of grass labled with a year 1941, or 1944, etc. But what was so moving was the classical music being played through loud speakers throughout the grounds. It had such a sobering effect on us that nobody spoke on the bus, including the guide, for quite some time. It should be required visiting for every visitor to St. Petersburg.
The Moscow hotel was fine. The breakfast was excellent. Being close to a Metro so that we could get out at night was a plus for us.
The Suzdal hotel was perfect, right on the main square
St. Petersburg hotel was great. Excellent location for making the most of the evenings. We all came back with coughs and colds, utterly exhausted, but singing Russia's praises and the amazing experience we had.
Again, thanks for making it such a great trip.”

“First of all thank you very much for your excellent cooperation and your patience regarding this group.
They were very happy with the trip and gained many, many, many new experiences. They praised your work and dedication as well as Tatianas in St. Petersburg.
They loved the St. Petersburg guide. They really liked Korchma Tara Bulbas and Glavpivtorg restaurants and in general the meals in St. Petersburg.
Thanks again for the great cooperation, it was and is a pleasure working with you.”

“Es war ein toller Rundgang mit Oxana Es war ein interessanter und informativer Rundgang. Wir haben vieles zu den Sehenswuerdigkeiten aber auch darueber hinaus erfahren. Vielen Dank dafuer noch einmal.”

“Informativ, gut gemacht, keine Beschwerden. Punktlich abgeholt, informativ, fur gutes Wetter war auch noch gesorgt, es gibt daruber nix zu meckern!”

“Just a quick email to say that the whole trip was excellent. As I have just stated in my feedback questionnaire, Colin Bailey and the local guide in St Petersburg Elena were a dream team and could not have been bettered. The Moscow extension worked flawlessly too, and there too the local guide Natalia was excellent. The ballet and opera at the Mariinsky and Bolshoi respectively were superb. Thank you for handling the booking and dealing with all my queries and emails.”
