We have had an absolutely wonderful trip!
Firstly we want to thank you for all your efforts, arrangements and assistance from the beginning. We also appreciate the extra efforts to arrange the Folk show and especially the trip to Pushkin, which we enjoyed very much. I'll refer now a bit more in detail to our programme.
Hotel St Regis was absolutely fabulous, including the rooms, breakfasts and service. Our guide was excellent and we enjoyed all the excursions. The only bad spot (and that is for the whole tour), was the lunch on the last day in Moskow before we boarded the boat. We think this was the worst meal we have ever had before! The area where the place (cannot call it a restaurant) was situated as well as the atmosphere was poor and far below average. The service was bad and the food worse. It left a sour note at the end of such an otherwise splendid time in Moskow.
The boat experience was five star in every sense of the word. The cruise director and all the staff were fantastic and the food of the highest quality one can get. The wine selection was also good and the presentation of the meals marvellous. We we very impressed by Prof Ludmilla whose lectures were exceptional, very learnful and of high quality. The same can be said of the concert pianist, whose performance was excellent. Unfortunately we missed Khizi Island due to bad weather.
This city surpassed all our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed the excursions. The art we saw in the Hermitage was incredible, including also the new part which we visited on our own. All the guides we had were very good and the Taleon Hotel was also exceptional. Pushkin is a must see and we were very glad you had arranged the trip for us.
All and all we had a wonderful time and the arrangements were punctual and very well organized. We will definitely go back to Russia!
