“Thoroughly recommend this tour as it was an eye opener and greatly dispelled some of the perceptions held about Russia and its people. be my guest evening was a very memorable event -first class. Nothing we could fault regarding the tour.”
Excellent

“To rate the itinerary, I take out the best travel books about the destinations and compare what we saw in the tour and the optional activities to what was noted in the books. The tour covered just about every top attraction and did it within the days of the trip.

We traveled at the peak of the season. There were many other tourist but at most attractions, our arrival was at a slow time.”
Very Good
4 - Very Good
“Perhaps add additional days in Stockholm and more overnight enroute to Moscow to cut long trip on bus.”

“It was a very busy tour (the busiest I have had with Trafalgar so far) but I saw everything I wanted and more, had wonderful experiences and thoroughly enjoyed the whole tour. It exceeded my expectations.

The tour director Goran was great. He made sure we all had a terrific time, while at the same time (behind the scenes) dealing with some difficult situations very well and professionally. I'm always impressed with the Trafalgar tour directors and Goran did not disappoint at all.

I particularly enjoyed the experiences in St Petersburg and Moscow. The Hermitage had to be seen to be believed. But, the memory of our walk down Red Square up to St Basil's church after we did the tour of the Metro stations, is one of those special memories that will be with me for ever.

Thanks Trafalgar and Goran”
